Meatless Monday with Vegan Roasted Cauliflower Tomato Soup
Hello and welcome (back) to the Miratel blog and to our weekly Meatless Monday inspired recipe share series. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge as it encourages eliminating meat from your diet one day per week to preserve the health of our planet (and ourselves!). We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.
Trying to find healthy yet easy to make and meat-free meals can be difficult especially within the limited time constraints of weeknights. Our weekly recipe share aims to help you with that by sharing a new vegan recipe that is do-able for most home cooks.
While we wait for the spring weather to catch up with the calendar, we are looking for meals that are still hearty enough to stand up to a chilly night while recognizing that warmer weather (and less clothes) are on the horizon. On the menu tonight is a perfect spring weeknight meal; vegan roasted cauliflower tomato soup which comes from Jackie of Vegan Yack Attack.
