It's only hubby and I, so I picked two meatless meals. This week it was the Quinoa Black Bean Casserole and the Vegetarian Chili with Cornbread. Those two meals were more than enough for us. Will only make one meatless meal this week. Report
A great way to eat less meat! Report

I'm always looking for meatless meals that my family will eat. Can't wait to try some of these. Report
The Mayo Clinic recommends between 10 and 35 percent of calories from protein. These recipes (and most diets) are well within that range. Report
Here's the problem with all of these recipes. The highest protein one was the chili, and that was only 21% protein. Many others were much less than that. Assuming a vegetarian diet here, they aren't going to be having high protein snacks to make up for the low protein meals. Spark even recommends 20% daily calories come from protein, most other places recommend more. So how are these good ideas? Report
I have made the slow cooker vegetable curry before and it is yummy. It freezes well too! I plan to make the quinoa and black bean casserole later this week. I love the weekly meatless menu blog. Thanks so much! Report

Thank you for some new ideas. Report
Like others, I am eating less meat and saving my money for local small farm meat. I just bought some pork spareribs from a local farm and they will be part of a special meal. These meatless meals sound delicious, I will definitely be trying them. Report
i like the sound of these, except I'll be replacing the eggplant with a summer squash from my CSA Report

I started doing Meatless Monday, but that quickly evolved into meatless everyday. I'm not a vegetarian, and I do still eat meat, but usually only if I'm out at a restaurant. It's just so much cheaper, and I'm adding way more veggies into my diet now. Report
I'm trying to eat less meat so I can afford better meat raised locally and treated humanely. Meatless meals definitely help me with that! Report

I love the idea of adding meatless meals to my food plan. Although I hated vegetables as a child, I am discovering the joys of eating more beans, vegetables, and whole grains. Report
Every time I cook a meatless meal, my husband says, "This is really good, but it would be even better with some beef or chicken in it!" LOL Report
I am always on the look out for meatless meal ideas. Thanks Report
Thank you! I gave up meat on June 1st and love having all of these options. I made the quinoa-black bean casserole last night and it was fabulous. Thanks again Report
We've been eating a lot less meat lately, and these all sound wonderful, thank you! Report
