What better day to feature a round up of our favorite vegan recipes than Meatless Monday? While the Meatless mission certainly isn't to convert everyone to veganism, they recognize the incredible environmental impact of the meat industry - from the monetary and environmental costs of raising cattle/pork/poultry to the slaughtering and packaging process -- the emissions and damage caused by transportation alone is astounding. Whether you are pursuing a vegan lifestyle for health, environmental or ethical reasons -- or just trying to lessen your carbon footprint by cutting our meat once a week -- here are five fabulous recipes to inspire you.
