Meat Free Mondays - 7 Recipes for the Week Ahead (12 December 2016)

Happy Monday everyone! 

How are you? 

Are you in the mood for Christmas and are you busy Christmas shopping? I wonder if you've thought about what you are making for Christmas dinner this year?

I haven't made up my mind yet although I was thinking about my Cheesey Vegetable Pie (veggie and vegan recipes) just for a bit of comfort food. I'd serve it with roast potatoes and extra vegetables. I usually make some sort of tart which I serve with the above and gravy, but I'm not sure this year. Do leave a comment with your ideas.

The weather is definitely cold this week and it reflects in this week's recipes. Have a look through and click on the links for the full recipes. I do hope you leave inspired!

  1. I LOVE the sound of those lentil nachos - what a brilliant idea! Mind you, it's hard to ever make bad nachos :)

  2. Thanks for sharing these delicious recipes!

  3. I think this is my favourite linky by far Jac, as I'm always looking for new veggie inspiration for my other half. I'm absolutely loving the look of that Wild Mushroom and Spinach Pie that Kellie has submitted... what a stunner! Thanks for including my dish too :-)

    1. So glad you are enjoying it Katie. I look forward to it every week too. So much inspiration!

  4. Yep, done some Christmas shopping today and getting in the mood. Thanks for sharing the nachos - I think that is just what I need after christmas shopping! Love the other dishes - some pasta or that lentil salad would do me very nicely too!

    1. The nachos look awesome Johanna! Thanks for submitting them, but don't talk to me about Christmas, I am feeling so behind with it all today!

  5. Thanks so much for featuring our lentil salad! All of these recipes sound amazing! Wishing you all a beautiful week! :)

  6. Thanks so much for featuring my parsnip, chestnut and sage wreath. I think we're going to go alternative this year and do an Indian-style Christmas meal - but if not then I'll be making the wreath. The Delia Smith parsnip roulade is another great veggie option.

  7. Everything looks so good especially the nachos and the lentil, beets and goats cheese salad. Linked up my chunky root veg and bean soup, thank you for hosting x

  8. I am craving a slice of that wild mushroom pie, although I'd love any of these to be served up for me this week - hint hint!

  9. I'm loving the look of the Mushroom and greens pie, it really does look very tempting. Just linked up my Christmas Plait :-)
