Meatless Monday Recipe Round-Up - 2/20/12
* Dessert: Maple Cinnamon Banana Dessert Lavash
Think of this easy to make dessert as a dessert quesadilla. Infused with sticky sweet vegan butter sautéed bananas, cinnamon, maple syrup - all folded inside a crisp yet soft and chewy lavash bread. Pan-fried for a few seconds in the maple-vegan butter pan. This dessert is really a fun treat to get creative with too! Try adding in chocolate or various fruit combos to change it up.
* Dessert: Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse
Creamy, rich and fluffy - this peanut butter chocolate mousse is a dessert to crave! Made from simple vegan ingredients - no bake!
* Salad or Entree: BBQ Tempeh Tahini Citrus Salad
I am in love with this easy to make salad. Add some amazing baby greens - top with my tahini dressing and serve with bold BBQ tempeh bites. Red onion, sweet citrus. Salad bliss!
* Giveaway: Giveaway: The Inspired Vegan Cookbook

Turn your steel cut oatmeal into true super food fare! Infused with healthy omega fatty acid rich chia seeds - these oats take on a unique creamy texture that I love! Nuts and fresh fruit accents.
* Lunch: Sweet Potato Hummus Tartine
My homemade sweet potato hummus makes for a delicious tar tine lunch! Sweet tart green apple and zesty red onion accent this easy lunch recipe.

Fresh blueberries are the star of this morning-approved bread recipe. Moist and delicious - this bread pairs perfectly with your morning chai latte or cup of coffee.
