Meatless Monday: Cucumber Salad, Carrot Salad, Broccoli and Pesto Tagliatelle + Classic Tomato Spaghetti

 Meatless Monday is a nonprofit initiative of The Monday Campaigns.  Their goal is to help reduce meat consumption by 15% to improve personal and planetary health.

I'm still working my way through the vegetarian recipes in Jamie's Food Revolution.  Last week I made a version of his Everyday Green Chopped Salad recipe.  This week I made the Evolution Cucumber Salad, Evolution Carrot Salad, the Broccoli and Pesto Tagliatelle, and the Classic Tomato Spaghetti. I've put links to all of the recipes below, so that you can try them too!

I made the Evolution Cucumber Salad and Evolution Carrot Salad using the most basic versions of each recipe. Both were quick and delish, especially in the hot weather.

The Broccoli and Pesto Tagliatelle used heaps of fresh broccoli (including the stems, which I'd never cooked with before), and the potatoes shavings made it extra yummy. The Classic Tomato Spaghetti was also super tasty.  I doubled the garlic, basil and tomatoes, and halved the pasta, so that there would be more sauce.

Has anyone made Jamie Oliver's Basil and Lime Sorbet? It looks so easy, good, and cool.

  1. I love pesto!!!

    It's delicious.

    And also, it's nice to meet another California blogger. Oakland is about a hop, skip and a jump away from me.

    Have a nice day!

  2. ZZ's ~ Pesto makes everything more delish, doesn't it?
