Meatless (Vegan) Monday Challenge: Week #1

Are you already a vegetarian or vegan, and want to join in on the Meatless Monday movement? Don't feel left out! Join my challenge to do Vegan Mondays!

Or, are you a meat-eater who wants to highlight his or her meatfree creations for Meatless Mondays? Are you looking to incorporate more vegetables into your family's meals?

Then you're in the right place because Veggie Converter & Becoming Brea are hosting a Vegan Monday Link-Up!

Today's Meatless Vegan Monday meal is Curried Chickpeas, Cauliflower and Kale.

The international Meatless Mondays movement is honored throughout the blog world. Here on Veggie Converter, you will be able to comment or link your Meatless Monday meals while I post my Meatless Monday challenge to myself, Vegan Mondays. If you're a vegetarian or vegan blogger and would like to be featured for Vegan Mondays, link up, or contact

Now for the link-up rules: post your link to a meatless (vegan or vegetarian, or even an attempted meatless) recipe that you've posted on your blog. Of course, if you'd like to follow either Veggie Converter or Becoming Brea, that would be great, too (but that's absolutely not required—this is about the FOOD!).

Next week, a reader recipe that was linked up this week will be highlighted on Meatless (Vegan) Mondays. Each week you link up or comment, gives you an opportunity to be featured the following week.

Please join us for the inaugural Meatless (Vegan) Monday link-up event. What Vegan or Meatless Monday Meal is your family having today?

  1. Kristi, your curry sounds fantastic! I've not done many vegan recipes, but I do lots of meatless ones. I think I may have actually done a vegan one here though because the puff pastry I use is made with vegetable shortening instead of butter! As I'm not a strict vegan (or vegetarian for that matter) I'm not a hundred percent sure, but fingers crossed!

    Thanks for this great new recipe carnival - I'm always looking for new meat free recipes :)

  2. This sounds really good. I'm a big curry fan. Yum!

  3. Tweets about VeganMondays: @staceygrewal said.... @VeggieConverter I'm probably making Matar Paneer (peas and paneer) and Rajma (kidney beans).

  4. This sounds delicious... Really like your idea for Mondays... I am looking for meatless recipes... I'm not sure if VEGAN is they we will go, Hubby is a full blown carnivore, but I'd like to gradually get the family to consume little and hopefully no meat.. lol..

  5. Yum! I'm going to spend some time this afternoon drooling over every submission. One of these days I'll join you and link up. Maybe next week!

  6. What a great link-up! Can't wait to find and try some new recipes!

  7. Thanks for the invite! I like your idea of bringing people together with vegan (or vegetarian) recipes. I have a couple new original recipes in the works, that I will be sure to link to you next week. :)

  8. I just found your blog so I've linked up a meatless dish that I featured on my own link up party - Tailgating Time! Hope you'll join us there too :-)

  9. I love this blog, thank you for letting me view.

  10. I also wanted to say thanks for the invite! We are not vegetarians, but eat as such to save money! I loved the recipe I posted b/c even my husband and daughter loved it!

    Thanks again, and good luck this year!

  11. Thanks to you all fpr coming by and a special thanks to those who shared their yummy recipes! I hope you'll all be back for more next Monday.


  12. Hi Kristi,

    Just discovered yours, I have linked my spinach recipe for this event. Thanks for hosting.
