Growing up with a Japanese mother I ate a lot of (you guessed it) Japanese food. So I absolutely LOVE Asian food- not just Japanese food. Give me a plate of Pad See Ew, a bowl of Pho, or a vegan bibimbap and I’m just as happy as I would be with a huge plate of vegetable tempura and udon noodles. YUM!!!!
The great thing about Asian food is that it’s delicious, usually quick to prepare and really easy to make meat-free! I often make Asian meals for my kids and it’s always a hit. So today for Meatless Monday are a few dishes that you can try.
Say WHAT? Yes, using cauliflower instead of meat in this dish gives it some texture, great nutritional value, and challenges your idea that you don’t like cauliflower. If you remember a few months ago we did a post on the various things you can make with cauliflower so now you can add this to that list!
Bibimbap is a traditional Korean dish that has veggies and meat served over rice with a spicy sauce. This recipe simply omits the meat and looks just as good without it!
Last week I told you about an awesome site for vegan recipes. Here she goes again with a quick vegan fried rice recipe. If you’re looking to go meat free, check out www.minimalistbaker.com . Today we present you with her fried rice recipe.
Tempura is one of my all time favorite dishes. Definitely not one I eat frequently but I make it every blue moon (I’m not a fan of frying food). If you want to give yourself a treat, try this recipe out!
There is something about a crispy tofu dish topped with a sauce and served over hot rice. This recipe is quick and easy and sure to be a hit.
So there you go. A few meat free meal options for you to try. As usual, don’t forget to let me know if you try any of these recipes and how it went for you. I look forward to hearing about your experiences.
