Pesto Chicken {Vegetarian} and Meatless/Vegan Monday Link-up

Day 241.

I'm over at OAMM again today with Slow Cooker Vegan Pesto Chicken. I topped mine with the optional potatoes, 1/2 onion, 3 cloves garlic, Italian seasoning and a splash of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

The Results
I don't think my husband is going to be fooled by this one, like he can be with "meaty" spaghetti sauce, but I do think it's really good. And I love the complete layered dinner. The potatoes turned out really well.

Meatless/Vegan Monday Link-up
To participate this week 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
Today's Meatless/Vegan Monday meal is Beyond the Peel's Carrot Pappardelle Pasta.
So creative, simple, and gluten-free, France's carrot "pasta" is a great idea.

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.
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 the Meatless (Vegan) Monday link-up. What Vegan or Meatless Monday Meal is your family having today?

  1. I love the idea of kale pesto! It is so good for you, and I'm sure it has a wonderful flavour too. I also like the featured recipe with the carrot 'pasta' - what a totally delicious idea! Thank you for hosting, and have a lovely week!

  2. That carrot pasta is very interesting. I wouldn't mind trying it. Very creative gluten free option.

    Thank you for hosting. I am linking up my version of Tarator Bulgarian cold cucumber soup.
