meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Join the Barbecue with Tasty Skewers In the decades since I stopped eating meat, people have often asked whether I miss eating hamburgers on the grill. I don’t.

But over the years, many other base ingredients have proven to make tasty, refreshing pesto pastes as well. Kale’s recent popularity has made it a worthy pesto base, by itself and in combination with fresh basil. Arugula also makes a delicious, savory pesto.

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Spring Garden Vegetable Hodgepodge I’m a big fan of Deborah Madison, former chef of Greens Restaurant in San Francisco.

The food is healthy, innovative and always inspiring. As a vegetarian since 1978, it’s like Christmas

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Spring Arugula Salad Anyone who says salads are unexciting has never tasted arugula.

Meatless Monday: Kale Salad

posted by Charlotte Bell on April 27, 2015 |

northernspykaleKale Salad for Meatless Monday After decades of growing and consuming lots of kale, I’m so happy to see this vitamin- and mineral-packed leafy green finally getting its due. For many years I bore ridicule from people who had never—and would never—touch kale if their lives depended on it. Now you see it everywhere, not only in its more traditional forms—steamed or sautéed in a side dish—but in more mainstream
