Meatless Monday: Sushi Roll Salad, Waffles and Pinterest

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.  Each week I share meatless recipes I've tried from cookbooks and online.  You can see my past Meatless Monday posts by clicking here.

This week I made my first homemade waffles with a heart-shaped waffle maker (fun!).  I used the "Old-Fashioned Chelsea Waffles" recipe from Vegan Brunch.  It called for 3 T of barley malt syrup, which gave the waffles a unique and yummy flavor.  You can view the recipe on Google Books.

Another new recipe I made this week was the "Sushi Roll Edamame Salad" with "Green Onion-Miso Vinaigrette" from Appetite for Reduction. This was tasty, but it took awhile to make.  If you already had leftover rice, and made the dressing ahead of time, it would cut your prep time significantly. I would make this again, but only if I had a chunk of time, and more than two people to feed.  It makes a lot, and isn't that tasty as a leftover.

Last night I set up a Pinterest account. Pinterest allows you to create and share virtual pinboards One of my "boards" is Vegan Aspirations, where I've pinned recipes I want to try.  If you want to follow the board, my profile is

What yummy meatless dishes did you make last week, or want to make this week?

  1. Love this post! My first blog read since my return from month unplugged. Pix look yummy! And delicious! Love the pinboard! Awesome. I had the most simple of fave salads after a month on the road...Romain lettuce, ripe avocado, arugula, spinach, with a smallish amount of steamed sweet potato and quinoa served warm on top-dressed with a bit of veganaise, nutritional yeast, sea salt and drizzled w/olive oil. Desert-vanilla coconut bliss. YUM. My meatless Monday. Thanks for the inspiration. Love you, G

  2. You make the best salads. I missed having my annual Gabriela summer salad this year.

  3. We posted this Rotini with Lentils recipe earlier this year. Super healthy and easy and can be adjusted for what you have on hand.

  4. Food Bank of Contra Costa ~ The pasta recipe looks delicious, as do the Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookies!
