Meat Free Mondays - 7 Recipes for the Week Ahead (17 August 2015)

It's Monday and time to plan some recipes for the week ahead, if you haven't already done so.

Meal planning is basic here this week as I'm sitting in bed with a rather nasty chest infection. So it's all down to what my hubby can manage.

Last night we had well cooked vegan sausages on rolls (buns) with mustard and relish and it was rather good. What he can accomplish the rest of the week, I'm not so sure. Oh and did I tell you that our oven conked out and we're waiting for another one, so no oven either. Sods law really. Still, I'm hoping to feel much better after a couple of days of antibiotics and steroids.

Back to the recipes. They are as droolworthy as ever, so get your notepad ready for the ingredients. Just click on the links or photos for the recipes. My featured photo this week comes from Sophia from Veggies Don't Bite. A rather pretty photo of some spiralised courgette (zucchini).

  1. I am IN LOVE with my spiralizer. I've gone through TWO already. It's insane.

    1. I know what you mean, I too have fallen hard for my spiralizer :)

    2. I need to find mine, I was sent one and don't know what the heck I've done with it.

  2. Going with a dessert this week, hope that's ok. I realize most desserts don't contain meat anyway.

    1. It won't be a featured recipe as it's not a main course, but it will make a great bonus recipe.
