When my kids were younger in a bid to save money we did defer to Meatless Monday, without it even being a thing. I was so on trend before the trend! hahahaha. This is perfect for any meatless night you choose. It will feed the carnivores as much as the vegetarians and it is only a step away from making it completely vegan! (Remove the cheese and use Vegan Aioli...done!)
I hope you try it. You can feel good about saving the planet as well as improving your plant based meal count! #Foodpositivity strikes again!
