6 Recipes for National Vegetarian Month

To celebrate National Vegetarian Month, we’ve compiled some of our favorite Vegetarian Recipes. Eating a plant-based diet is so good for your health. Making simple changes to reduce animal products and increase greens can improve cholesterol which leads to a healthier heart. There are other benefits to skin, hair, and nails also. If you aren’t a full-time vegetarian, why not try enjoying a plant-based diet one month a year?

Seitan Recipe with Chimichurri Sauce

Making scratch Seiten is not an easy task. It takes a lot of time (at least a half-day) You knead a dough ball of wheat gluten for at least an hour in ice-cold water to turn it into wheat protein. To make this recipe easier, I buy seitan from my local organic market and strongly suggest you do the same.
