Whether your reasons are ethical, environmental, nutritional or financial, there are plenty of good reasons to eat less meat, even if it's just once a week. We've got 7 great recipes to get you inspired to go meat-free on Mondays.

Farro with slow-roasted tomatoes, artichokes, olives & oregano

Greg and Lucy Malouf pair farro – an ancient variety of wheat – with robust flavours such as olives, chilli and slow-roasted tomatoes in this comforting Mediterranean-inspired pilaf. The perfect way to start your week, and no meat in sight.

Sweet potato mushroom burgers

These inventive burgers eschew both the meat and the bun. Why haven’t we thought of using mushrooms this way before?

Crisp fried tofu squares

This tofu dish is fiery and full of big flavours like garlic, cumin, coriander and soy. There’s no way you’ll be missing meat here.

Eggplant sandwich with pickles and hot sauce

Do meat-free Monday food-truck style with this brilliant eggplant sandwich recipe from Raph Rashid. 

Chermoula baked cauliflower

Whole roast cauliflower makes for a pretty spectacular dinner centrepiece, and the Moroccan-inspired flavours in this dish are a knockout. 

Young jackfruit salad with tofu

Once boiled, young jackfruit is quite similar to artichoke hearts. Combined with the tofu, this delicious jackfruit salad from Luke Nguyen makes a fantastically substantial meal, no meat required.

Leek, spinach & gruyère tart with spelt pastry

A spinach tart is the perfect Monday night dinner – it's full of iron and protein and you’ll have plenty of leftovers for weekday lunches.
