Meatless Monday Recipe Round-Up – 10/10
* Dessert: Peanut Butter Banana Pudding
This five ingredient pudding is a tasty treat that you can whip up in a flash! Healthy too! Maple, cinnamon, peanut and banana flavors.
* Entree: Fall Pasta: Garlic, Shiitake, Butternut, Sage
This is one of my favorite pasta combos for fall. Creamy roasted garlic meets sweet buttery butternut squash cubes and savory shiitake mushrooms. Sage and pepper accents. Perfect for a cozy fall dinner.
* Entree: Pumpkin Pizza
This dinner and a movie post is inspired by Charlie Brown for the “Great Pumpkin Pizza.” This pie is topped with roasted pumpkin or squash and a few more fall toppings. I love to add lemon slices to my pizza – they become roasted and sweet/sour in the oven. Try this fall pizza on your next pizza night!
* Side Dish: Easy BBQ Baked Beans and Lentils
I usually use soaked beans in soup. But this time I baked them in the oven for some super easy, super delicious homemade baked beans! Lentils and barley too. You’ll never want to buy canned baked beans again once you see how easy this recipe is.
* Beverage: Carrot Juice for Steve Jobs
My tribute to Steve Jobs – via his favorite health tonic: carrot juice! And a fun quip on Steve’s way to celebrate Halloween.
* Treat: Chocolate Dipped Knobby Nosed Ghosts
This homemade chocolate treat is a fun way to satisfy your vegan candy craving this October. Kids will love these little ghost faces too.
