We have gone through leaving my job, starting the blog, moving, and so many life events that have brought us closer together….

Fresh Take on Meatless Recipes

I have been a vegetarian for over 20 years. I know this may surprise a few of you with all of the meat recipes that we post on the blog. My dear Husband is a meat eater so I had to learn how to cook meat for him. I tend to make a vegetarian meal and a meat meal most nights or adapt a meal that can fit both of us.

I don’t know about you but I find myself gravitating towards the same recipes most weeks and really want to focus on spicing up our dinner menu. I am working with MorningStar Farms to share these great new fresh takes on Meatless Recipes.

I thought I would put together a fun foodie collection showcasing great meatless recipes that are a bit more than just your normal MorningStar Veggie Burger. Don’t get me wrong I love a good MorningStar Veggie burger or Spicy Black Bean Burger but it is nice to have a variety of options.

One thing I have found is the MorningStar Farms veggie products are the perfect base to a recipe. You can break up a Spicy Black Bean Burger or a Meditrranean Chickpea Burger and put it into a salad. I also love the Buffalo Chik’n Patty during football parties. I don’t feel like I am missing out on any appetizers when I can whip up a Buffalo Chik’n Patty and use it on nachos.

Each of these recipes use a great meatless MorningStar Farm product!
