Meal Planning: What’s for Dinner on Meatless Monday in February

February 3, 2014

Regardless of when you plan, on the first Monday of every month I’ll be sharing what’s in season as well as a few recipes to help get you inspired to add a Meatless Monday into your life every week!

One thing that I always recommend is to have vegetarian meals at least once a week to make sure you’re getting in loads of antioxidants and fibre to keep you regular!

Depending on your Meal Planning Personality you’ll plan your meals at different times – either a month or a week in advance or on the day.  (Click to take the Quiz to Uncover your Meal Planning Personality).

What’s in season During February (in the southern hemisphere) the focus is on:

  • Capsicums, Celery, Chillies, Eggplants, Green beans, Leeks, Onions, Peas, Sweet corn, Zucchini, Yellow squash, Spring onions/green shallots, Sugar snap peas
  • Plus salad items such as: Hass avocados, Cucumber, Lettuce, Snow peas, Radish

Meatless Monday Recipes

This month’s instalment of Meatless Monday Recipes include:

Quinoa Fritters:Worth trying this one as it uses a lot of Spring Onions!

Green asparagus, haloumi and zucchini salad

‘Zuchetti’ with pesto– Looking for a gluten free grain free alternative to pasta?  This is it – made with zucchini!

Leek, potato & lemon thyme frittata

Zucchini Slice

Inspired Sides:

Mexican-style barbecued corn with sweet smoked paprika and cheese. I’ve made these without bothering to BBQ and swapped paprika for fresh chili.  These are so yummy no matter what you do!

Sugar snap peas with baby beetroot  – just add feta or goat’s cheese and you’re in heaven!

Now, I would love to hear from you! In the comments below, tell me what your favourite Meatless Meal is and share a link to the recipe.  I would love to feature it in an upcoming collection!
