Meatless Monday Mediterranean Quinoa
Meatless Monday plant based weeknight meals for easy and healthy weeknight cooking
Plant-based diet. You’re trendy right now, and a bit political. But I’m intrigued. I’ve been listening to a bunch of podcasts and doing my own research about going plant-based. So far, I have to say, it’s been very intriguing. It’s also been a wee bit tasty!
Meatless Monday for the Win!
I did a plant-based detox back in May and it was incredibly eye-opening about what eating processed foods, animal proteins, and dairy do to your digestion. And here’s the thing, you don’t have to drop the animal proteins cold-turkey! (pun intended) You can start with something as simple as a Meatless Monday!

What is a Meatless Monday?
Meatless Monday means that instead of eating meat, you forgo it on Mondays. Just one day a week! Sounds doable right? I know a lot of the gals I chat with have trouble with their weekends. Too many indulgences, maybe a few glasses of wine, and Monday starts with a little too much bloat. Meatless Monday is a perfect way to combat that bloat and have you feeling lighter by Tuesday!
This Meatless Monday Recipe is super easy, one-pot, and will make your life that much easier. You can also make this recipe vegan-friendly by eliminating the cheese add at the end. I’m not sure I could ever go 100% vegan because I do love my cheese!
Another SUPER easy way to make this recipe is to cook the quinoa in a rice cooker and then just sauté up the veggies. I’m a huge fan of leftovers too and this recipe is also delicious cold for lunch the next day! Anything that can make my day easier and keep me away from the drive-through, I’m down with!!
This recipe is headed into regular rotation!
