Meatless Monday: 10 Vegetarian Brunch Ideas For Your Long Weekend

For millions of Americans, today is a day of reflection and reverence for the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. And, for many, that remembrance comes with an added bonus: a long weekend that’s perfect for brunch. If you’re one of those lucky folks who gets to spend the day appreciating the Dr. King–without the added distraction of work–consider whipping up one (or several) of these vegetarian and vegan mid-day meal ideas.

Even if you’re stuck at work today (you’re not alone–someone had to write this article!), bookmark these yummy meatless recipes for your next lazy Sunday or bonus day off. From mini savory pies to a refreshing grapefruit and avocado salad, these delicious, meat-free ideas will go perfectly with your favorite mimosa and some quiet thought (or rousing discussion) of the influence and impact of Dr. King and his legacy.

      Thanks so much for featuring my recipe! I have a tough time with bread-based recipes, too. It seems that yeast and I don’t get along so well. lol. But, I will keep trying. And in the meantime, I will make these yeast-free cinnamon rolls for a quick fix. :) Thanks again!
