Meatless Monday with Vegan Mexican Rice Soup

Welcome to the Miratel blog for another Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. The Meatless Monday pledge aims to reduce meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve personal and planetary health. You may well be aware that Miratel has taken the pledge to support this great initiative, which we have included as part of our CSR business strategies to spread awareness of the impact of food choices on our environment.

It might seem daunting to make a Meat-free meal, especially a vegan one, but that is where we come in to help. Every Monday we feature a new vegan recipe to help take the guesswork out of what to make for dinner. Today’s dish is a one-pot meal that is delicious, easy to make and also nutritionally sound. This heart-healthy meal comes courtesy of the Forks Over Knives website.
