    We have never gone meatless. Not sure if one of my brothers would like it but when he doesn’t like what I cook he just opens a can of tuna and eats it with crackers so he could do that I guess. There are two recipes that I can tweak that they will both eat. Thank you.

    • Amy

      you would be surprised at what they will eat when you don’t tell them it’s meatless! Plus there are so many great veggie bases proteins now!

  5. tiffany

    Thank you! My 8yr old has recently decided to try being a vegetarian so I’m always looking for meal ideas that she will like.

    • melly

      Thank you for being so supportive of your child’s diet preferences!! I always wanted to be vegetarian as a child but had to wait til I turned 18 and moved out!

  7. Alyson

    Did my meatless Monday tonight. I chop up and sauté canned jackfruit and then toss with my favorite bbq sauce. Make a yummy vinegar slaw and have southern bbq sandwiches! Great leftover for lunch tomorrow too.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh nice! Thanks for sharing Alyson – sounds yum!

  8. Patricia Lavenz

    There is one or two my clan will eat. Thanks. Going to try them. My brothers won’t or can’t eat tomatoes so that lets off a lot of recipes.
