Meatless Monday is a global movement, a way of life. It’s not a campaign to turn everyone in the world vegetarian or vegan; in fact, many involved are meat-lovers. Eating less meat has been proven to reduce the risk of disease, curb obesity and has important environmental impacts, too. Will you join us in giving up meat, just for one day a week?
Good sandwiches aren’t just for meat lovers. It’s time to think beyond hot pastrami and grilled chicken. When it comes to sandwich fixings, the sky’s the limit. To me, almost everything is better in sandwich form, including vegetables. Sure they’re great as they are, but they’re better between ciabatta.
Kelsey’s grilled vegetable panini is the perfect meal to make for tonight’s Meatless Monday dinner. Loaded with good for you ingredients, it’ll fill you up without inducing a food coma. The layers of grilled mushrooms, bell peppers and squashes gives each bite tons of texture and pair nicely with the crusty Italian bread. The best part is the herbed feta spread. It only takes minutes to make, and the bright and zesty flavors compliment the smokiness of the grilled veggies quite fabulously.
Sandwiches are meant to be casual and fun, so don’t worry about sticking to the recipe exactly. Don’t like zucchini? Add more peppers. Eggplant caught your eye at the store? Go crazy. And don’t toss out that leftover spread. You’ll want to use it on everything.
