‘Meatless’ giveaway

Today I’m excited to share with you a new book from the kitchen of one of my culinary heroes, Martha Stewart. Her latest book, Meatless, is quite unlike her typical tomes in that the entire book revolves around–as the title suggests–meat free recipes. And, even though every single recipe isn’t solely plant based, I can confidently say that most of the recipes within the pages of this beautif

ully illustrated book are vegan (even marked with a handy “V”), and pretty much all of the non-vegan recipes can easily be made vegan with non-dairy substitutions. There are also a ton of gluten-free recipes, also clearly labeled for your gastronomical enjoyment.

Some of you may feel underwhelmed that this book isn’t entirely plant based, but as a longtime (diehard!) fan of Martha Stewart, and with her obvious influence that has reached the homes of millions of people, I find this to be an incredibly positive step in the right direction. In fact, I’m downright giddy about it.

So, today I am featuring one of the recipes from the book as well as offering a copy of Meatless to one lucky reader. To enter, simply leave a comment below telling me what your favorite ‘meatless’ dish is, and I’ll enter you in the contest. Open until February 14th to residents everywhere… winner will be announced February 15th.

Avocado Salad with Bell Pepper and Tomatoes 

(Recipe provided and reposted with permission from Clarkson/Potter Publishers)

Avocado shells make handy vessels for a bright salad made with the scooped-out flesh. Lime juice, garlic, and a pinch of cayenne flavor the dressing. The salad can also be served as a topping for quesadillas or as a fresh filling for tacos.

Serves 1

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 firm, ripe avocado, halved and pitted
  • ½ yellow bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, diced
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 scallion, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves, plus whole leaves for garnish


1. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lime juice, garlic, and cayenne. Season with salt.

2. Scoop out flesh from avocado halves, reserving shells, and chop. Transfer to a bowl and add bell pepper, tomatoes, scallion, and chopped cilantro.

3. Drizzle with dressing and season with salt. Gently stir to combine. Spoon mixture into reserved shells.

Garnish with whole cilantro leaves and serve immediately.

  1. Picking one favourite meatless dish is tough, so I am going to give you two ;) Tofu stir fry and grilled portobello burgers are equal ties for top of the list.

    This salad is lovely too!

  2. Ronda says:

    Waldorf Farro Salad

  3. Kelly says:

    My favorite meatless dish is pasta and broccoli with lots of garlic!

  4. Chatelaine says:

    A kale salad, with tempeh, and a creamy dressing made of nuts, lots of cheery tomatoes and seeds. So darn good!

  5. Jamie says:

    Vegan tortilla soup for sure! With sliced avocado on top.

  6. Johanna says:

    Anything vegan mexican!!

  7. Tessa says:


  8. Teresa says:

    Oh there is so many, but I think I most love a big spinach salad with lots of toppings (apples, carrots, cranberries, tofu, and AVOCADO!). Throw on some homemade dressing and its a delicious meal!

  9. Melodie says:

    After reading what other commenters have posted, I’m starting to think that I need to reassess my favourite meatless dish! There are so many other delicious things here I’d love to try. In any case, something that I often whip up is faux chicken breasts with red peppers roasted in balsamic and olive oil, that I put over wilted spinach and top off with mango. Kinda of like a warm salad. I would love this book to learn more recipes without having to rely on meatless “meat” substitutes. Especially since I’m attempting to go gluten-free as well.

  10. Erin Clouthier says:

    I’ve been vegan for seven years, and my favorite dish has been the same that whole time: peanut butter tofu with basil, broccoli, and jasmine rice!

  11. Brooke says:

    beans and rice.

  12. Lindsey says:

    Chocolate. But real meal-wise, probably enchiladas or mashed potatoes. Hmm, just realizing how hungry I am!

  13. Shirah says:

    Vegan pesto on zucchini ‘pasta’ with kalamata olives and cherry tomatoes is on my mind right now…

  14. April Sullivan says:

    My favorite, as well as my husbands, is black bean sweet potato burritos. He’s not a vegetarian (only dinners because I cook) and this recipe helped me convince him to give more things a try.

  15. Kiri says:

    My favorite dish is soba noodles with tofu, vegetables and peanut sauce.

  16. Melissa Fritz says:

    My favorite meatless dish would have to be zucchini noodles with grape tomatoes, artichoke hearts & black olives with basil olive oil poured over it. Yum!

  17. Carol says:

    My favorite meatless dish is pad tofu: soft tofu with mixed cruciferous vegetables in a spicy thai sauce.

  18. Aura says:

    Wonderful! This all is so new to me, I have just recently (not many months ago) realised the absolute benefits not to mention ethics behind being a vegan and loving it. Though not totally vegan yet (want this shift to meatless and dairy free life be permanent, and taking it step by step) I already feel so much better without meat! My favourite meatless dish… oh, so many of them. Lets say Nepalese spinach balls called HARIYALI KOFTA. Can’t make then at home (yet) and frankly, could use a good cook book with meatless/vegan recipes. Love your blog! Thanks for the good work!

  19. Evy says:

    My favorite meatless dish is lentils and rice casserole.

  20. Rachael says:

    sloppy joe!

  21. Tina says:

    My favorite meatless dish is my modified taco soup. Before we went vegan we put ground beef in it (yuck!). So we doubled up on beans and now it’s a healthy delicious Mexican veggie soup :D It never lasts more than 2 hrs!

  22. ModaMama says:

    I love anything avocado. I’d love the Avocado Salad with Bell Pepper and Tomatoes . Thank you for this contest. Would love a copy of this book to cook with.

  23. My favorite meatless dish is either cashew tofu and summer rolls, or homemade black bean burgers!

  24. mary says:

    I love beans and rice with all the fixings!

  25. Brandi says:

    Being that I am giving up meat for Lent, this would be a sweet deal to have this book in my collection! :) Love your blog & book, btw.

  26. Guilly says:

    Love Martha! Newly vegan here! I still like steamed broccoli and pasta with EVOO and nuritional yeast. I love burritos, quinoa and lots of kale!

  27. IrishJules says:

    Sweet Potato Lasagna – yummy!

  28. JennO says:

    Hands down…Cauliflower Potato Curry Stew…I could have it for dinner and lunch until every delicious drop is gone. Thanks for the offer…I will put it to good use!

  29. Jess says:

    All of my favorite meals are meatless! But one that’s really yummy these days is a big pot of beans and greens with skillet cornbread on the side. Yum!

  30. Eric says:


  31. Robin Zarate says:


  32. Wendy says:

    Spinach lasagna. Thanks for the giveaway, would love to win!

  33. Gina Maslow says:

    My favorite meatless meal will always involve quinoa. I cook it with vegetable broth, then may eat it with organic frozen spinach or a baked sweet potato. For me, simple is best. I also love to roast vegetables; any vegetable and add some to a bowl of quinoa.

  34. wow, this is SO exciting!!! I’m totally pumped that veg recipes are getting such a big publicity push with a book from Martha Stewart, and although it would be amazing if they were all vegan, I think it would probably scare more people off in the end. Meatless, and including some vegetarian recipes, is a fantastic way to win people over and I’m 100% with you on this being a great step for getting attention and making plant-based recipes more mainstream. Once they see how great plant foods taste, they’ll be more likely to stick with it long-term. This book is a HUGE step in the right direction for the majority of people eating standard meat-based diets. YAY!!! My favourite meatless dish??!?!?! does a fresh juicy mango count? ;) Something more substantial – I’d say a good quinoa tabbouleh. I love the fresh flavor and eating a ton of parsley :)

  35. Christina says:

    I’ve been eyeing this! Great giveaway!!

  36. Maggie says:

    Just started my vegan journey – so this might come in handy. I’m a big fan of pasta with roasted cauliflower

  37. noel says:

    chickpeas with a little chana spice and fresh curds. mmmmm

  38. Molly says:

    Popcorn is naturally vegan and gluten-free!

    But, okay, if I must pick a real dish, maybe chili and cornbread.

  39. My favorite meatless meal is veggie curry or a big salad with beans!

  40. Carolsue says:

    My favorite meatless dish is Butternut Orzo Risotto

  41. Jennifer Arent says:

    My absolute favorite are black bean patties. Just changing a couple seasonings and it can go from Tex-Mex to Italian :)

  42. Jeri-Lynn says:

    My fav is Vegan Kare Kare, it’s a Pilipino Peanut Stew. So good!

  43. deb m says:


  44. Anna Hawkes says:

    Tom ka soup! Or red lentils. :)
    Way to go, Martha!

  45. eliza says:

    I like to mix soy chorizo, beans, tomatoes, corn, cumin, chili powder all cooked together with daiya vegan cheddar on top, then serve over polenta. :-)

  46. Wendy says:

    Quinoa Salad with avocado and lemon dressing.

    I would love this book!!!

  47. Lisa says:

    Such a lovely giveaway. I have been a vegetarian for over 20 years, so how could I say what my favorite meatless meal is? Any Indian legume curry surely is up there for me and refried beans.

  48. Oh, so hard to choose! Probably burrito, because you can do so many different kinds of burritos with different flavours and it’s nice and portable.

  49. Kristina says:

    I’m with you – even if it has some vegetarian recipes, this is a BIG awesome thing and I was so excited when I saw this book!

    I would love this book.

    how can I choose ONE favorite? the first thing that came into my mind was enchiladas – specifically my crispy sweet potato chipotle enchilada is a favorite around here!

  50. judith says:

    Mushroom Barley Soup!

  51. Deena says:

    Yum! Hard to pick a favorite–maybe curried sweet potato soup. :)

  52. My favorite meatless dish is a Stuffed Zucchini. It’s easy and quick to prepare and taste so good. I’ve found that adding a sun-dried tomato vegan cheese and pinch of cilantro gives it the perfect kick.

  53. Anne says:

    My favorite meatless Martha Stewart recipe is her hash brown quiche.

  54. karen says:

    My favorite dish in the whole world is enchiladas, with sweet potatoes and beans and a green tomatillo sauce.

  69. MonsterAteMy says:

    I’ll say cold sesame noodles … Mmm.

  70. Alicia says:

    My favourite meatless dish is veggie burgers, with patties that have just about everything in them (beans, mushrooms, carrots, walnuts – you name it!).

  71. Marie Pier says:

    My favorite meatless dish is any kind of salad. I could eat salad every single day and I would be totally happy! Quinoa salad, spinach salad, with edamame, palm hearts, any nuts, marinated tofu… The possibilities are infinite! And I always make my own dressing. My favorite is tamari sauce with lots of garlic, olive oil and vinegar! And every salad should have avocado in it! :-)

  72. Ttrockwood says:

    I just love food, and the recipes you post are amazing! Keep up the great work <3

  83. Joanne D says:

    As boring as it is, my favorite meatless dish is salad the size of my head with everything in it, coated with a sweet and tangy dressing like Oh She Glows lemon-tahini dressing, or Powercakes’ creamy tahini nooch sauce. Salads are just so versatile, no cooking/waiting required, just chop up whatever, throw it in a bowl and feast! You can get all fancy with your veggies, even do a roasted veggie salad, or it can be as simple as lettuce and greens with some beans, nuts or seeds thrown in. Love me a good salad, all day, every day :D

  84. Stacey says:

    I love rice and veggie bowls, with tofu/tempeh/beans, and a miso-tahini sauce!

  85. halina k says:

    cooked beans and rice

  86. christine b says:

    I love a good tofu scamble.

  87. NicT says:

    Oh geez-there are so many! But one that the PPK does that has infinite variations is a roasty soba bowl.

  88. Margaret says:

    Also my meals are all meatless, so it is hard to pick a favorite. Just became vegan last month, was vegetarian for many years. Guess my favorite right now are fish taco’s without the fish. Our family was just discussing the other night that we need to rename our all time favorite. Guess they should be called vegi tacos. We usually fill them with coleslaw, mango salsa, black beans, cilantro, avacado and hot sauce. It’s like having a party in your mouth!!

  89. Rose says:

    Yum! Looks so fresh and so clean! I love Martha and always will… so bummed Whole Living is outta here.

    Thanks for this!

  90. Allison R. says:

  96. Audrey says:

    I’m vegan so all my favorite foods are meatless, but right now I guess I’ll go with tacos.

  97. Lisa Carr says:

    I love Martha!! And I’m a newbie to this whole vegan/vegetarian “thing”*:)…It’s been a long journey for me…figuring out that I feel so much better…SO much better without meat and dairy. It seems I’ve always known this. As a kid …I HATED meat. But being raised on an Iowa farm….meat was what was for dinner! I hated milk as well…but I remember being the last one at the lunch table at school, because I hadn’t finished milk yet!!
    So…finally at age 41….I’m getting it: I’ve always been Vegan at heart!!*:))I But I don’t know how to do anything fancy….yet! I love roasted veggies and brown rice….or brussels in coconut oil. Those are my go-to meals!!*:)I

  98. Brandy says:

    Heh, it’s kinda funny to pick my favorite meatless meal since I’m vegan – all of my meals are meatless! But I do have one favorite that has held up through my omni, vegetarian, and vegan stages: spicy red bell pepper & tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches (w/vegan cheese now).

  99. Liz S says:

    I love a nice homemade pizza with Nooch and veggies!!

  110. Louise says:

    The avocado salad is presented so well and very tasty.
    I would love a copy of this book. Always searching for new and scrumptious ideas!

    My favorite is Black Bean and Sweet Potato Quaedilla. This new boo looks like a winner.

  124. Emma says:

  128. Kelli says:

  145. teepee says:

    I have to say that Veggie Chili is my fav…with a close second of Broccoli and Ziti.

  146. Alexandra says:

    I agree. I think the more meatless meals/cookbooks that are mainstream, especially from non-plant based authors, the better. I think Martha Stewart has a huge audience and the fact that she put out a book like this is great news! More people are going veg! Or at least dabbling a few times a week.
    My favorite plant-based meal is a good stir-fry. We do it once a week, cleaning out our produce drawer. Any tofu/tempeh/leftover beans go in the pot as well. It’s always full of color and satisfying! I could eat it almost every day :)

  147. melissa says:

    I just heard about this book and am dying to get my hands on a copy!

  148. Kara says:

    My favorite meatless meal is vegan calaloo soup. Second place goes to anything Indian.

  152. Melissa Karp says:

  153. Karen says:

    Tortilla soup with fresh corn tortillas and guacamole. :)

  154. seeley says:

    Oh, buddy, lentils atop quinoa is a like dessert for me. HMMMM, baby…a meatless manifestation of goodness!

  165. chris says:

    My favorite meatless dish is homemade pizza!!!!

  166. Lisa says:

    I LOVE zucchini noodles wih avocado sauce and oven roasted tomatoes! Although your post today seems pretty delish too!

  167. So excited for Martha taking meat-free mainstream. I can see only positives from this!

    Favourite ‘meatless’ dish – mixed bean burgers with mango salsa.

    Ultimate in comfort food.

  168. Pam says:

    I would really love a copy of Martha’s book. Ironically, my mother in law was just saying to me tonight that she didn’t think Martha Stewart would ever put out a meatless recipe book; so I would really love to cook a recipe for her from this book! When I was pregnant, all I wanted was a falafel wrap, especially one with yummy cabbage and carrot salad and some lettuce in it. I had to have them at least 5 times a week and sometimes a few times a day. Now that I’m breastfeeding, I still have a falafel wrap fix, but I’m only eating them about twice a week now. So I’m going to say that my favorite meatless dish is a falafel wrap (and I’m guessing it is my little baby girl’s favorite dish too, as I think she is the one that was always indirectly asking me for it). ;-)

  169. Katy Penrod says:

    I love a quick and tasty veggie and tofu stir-fry!

  170. jackie says:

    my favorite meatless dish is a home maid tofurkey. Way too much work to make it often…but amazing for thanksgiving.

  171. Libby says:

    My favorite meatless meal is lentil stew with pumpkin!

  172. Marty says:

    How awesome of Martha Stewart! I love her books and glad she has a 1/2-hr show on PBS now because we don’t have cable. I’d love this book! Definitely a good lentil loaf with an onion or mushroom gravy.

  173. cookie says:

    People can say what they want about Martha I think she is a genius and I’ve learned so much from her. Glad she is embracing meatless options as well woohoo.

    Favorite meatless dish – Loaded Baked Sweet Potato – Caramelized Shallots and spinach, broccoli florets, avocado slices

  174. Cat says:

    Just beans and greens. Isa Chandra Moskowitz style.

  175. Erin says:

    I love a good veggie stew, with sweet potatoes, kale and sriracha, especially.

  176. Victoria says:

    I love the variety of vegan desserts, especially cupcakes!!!

  177. michele-erez says:

    I love vegan burritos and vegan cupcakes!

  178. All my favorite dishes are meatless! Hmm. I’ll say a homemade spicy black bean burger. Hearty and satisfying.

  179. Mel B. says:

    Is it too vegan to say my favourite meatless meal is a fantastic kale salad with other seasonal produce thrown in, probably a tahini dressing. In close second is chocolate cake!

  180. lindsay spencer says:

    So surprised but excited by this! My favorite meatless dish is gluten free pasta with a quick squash puree and toasted pumpkin seeds.

  181. April says:

    I started a plant-based diet in November (and avoid gluten – hurts my bod). So I am fairly new to Meatless Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. However… as a Newbie, I can tell you I LOVE LOVE LOVE a Portbella Mushroom on the grill with fresh corn and black bean salsa. This book could expand my horizons while shrinking my waistline!

  182. My favorite meatless dish are salads of course!

  183. Beth says:

    I LOVE Martha! My favorite meatless dish is straight up spaghetti…. carbs are the best!

  184. Shereeliz Caldwell says:

    I love Martha and have been converting her recipes to vegan/gluten free facsimiles for years. This time the hard part will be done for me–love it! My favorite vegan dishes: lemon poppyseed cake w/lemon curd topping; baked falafel with tangy tahini dressing on homemade pocket bread; vegan strawberry-lemon cheezcake; and tofu t’key based with soy/sake and stuffed with wild rice w/walnuts, celery, shitake mushroom dressing and vegan gravy. Love you, Martha!

  185. Lee-Anne says:

    My favourite meatless dish is sweet potato and spicy kidney bean burritos. Homemade burritos of course and I always throw in some baby spinach too.

  186. Rebecca says:

    I don’t think I can come up with just one favorite, but I do love butternut squash ravioli with crispy sage.

  187. cindy says:

    I would love this cookbook! My favorite meatless dish right now is anything with roasted cauliflower in it. I have been taking roasted cauliflower and adding it to soups, salads and making tacos out of it. I also eat it straight out of the pan.

  188. Mary Kate says:

    If I’m honest, my favorite meatless dish is vegan cupcakes. I love a good black bean taco, too.

  189. Awesome! Well right now I’m eating sweet potatoes roasted with curry powder and coconut oil, with kale and chickpeas, and it’s pretty darn good.

  190. Josiane says:

    I agree with you: it’s always great to see something so mainstream make a step in the right direction!
    One of my (many) favorite meatless dishes has to be the quick, easy and yummy chickpea curry we make once in a while. Flavorful and warming: it’s perfect for this time of the year!

  191. ameyfm says:

    cool! what a nice giveaway. I’ve had good luck with Martha recipes (baking and such) over the years. It’s hard to say what my favorite meatless meal is – I guess I’d say anything new that I’ve never made before!

  192. Lyn says:

    With Martha’s influence, this book is a positive step! My favorite meatless meal, well they’re all meatless now. I guess I’d pick Black Bean Enchiladas. Though hummus is a close second…

  193. Favorite meatless dish ever? Of any type? Damn, that’s tough…but I gotta say hummus. I don’t even need anything WITH it – just hummus, and a spoon. Or my finger, I don’t care.

  194. Caitlin Thompson says:

    My favorite meatless dish is any soup that I can make in my crock pot, preferably out of fresh veggies and dried beans.

  195. Dal bhat for the meatless anytime win! :)

  196. Carla says:

    Anything Indian, fabulous!

  203. FoodFeud says:

  204. Vanessa says:

    I have too many favorites to pick just one, but Lentil Tacos make frequent reappearances in our home.

  205. ryane says:

    My favourite: pasta… with asparagus, lemon and a hint of chili flakes!

  206. abby says:

    any kind of salad!

  207. Christine says:

  208. Nina Z says:

    I am really loving all the vegan burger recipes I’m currently seeing!

  209. Amy says:

    It’s so hard to pick a favorite, but I love any kind of Thai dish with noodles, tofu, and veggies! :)

  210. Kerianne says:

    I love making meatless pastas and curries! This is fantastic that she made a cookbook – I have been getting Whole Living magazine for years (they just stopped publication sadly)


  211. Katie says:

    Wow, so hard to pick one!!!! I guess my favorite these days is a toasted rice cooked cereal with blueberries and maple syrup.. Chipotle corn chowder a close second… Martha’s book sounds amazing!!!!! Thanks for the contest!!!! Katie

  212. JenMeister says:

    Beet Burgers! Yum yum yum…

  213. Lindsay says:

    I love a good tofu stirfry with rice. Always so filling and flavorful!

  214. Erica says:

    It is really hard to decide what my one favorite meal would be, but I love anything Tex-mex (vegan of course!), so burritos or nachos!

  215. My favourite vegetarian/vegan meal is eggplant mousaka.

  216. MelissaW says:

    I like to make a butternut squash mac & cheese with GF pasta.

  217. Sonja says:

    My favorite meatless meal? That’s so hard! Hmm…either a dairy-free mac and cheese or a good thai curry :)

  218. Mandi says:

    Beet tostadas hands down !

  219. nina says:

    Roasted Veggies and Rice.

  220. Kamila says:

    The lentil dahl soup from Seattle’s Flying Apron cookbook instantly became a family favorite!

  221. Liz says:

    pineapple cashew stir fry!

  222. Chris says:

    I love hummus with pita and raw veggies to dip in it!

  223. Shannon B says:

    I love roasted veggies that have been tossed in liquid aminos and/or mirin. So tasty! They’re also great comfort food during the cold months.

    Thanks for posting about this book. I had no idea she was releasing a meatless book.

  224. Sandra says:

    Anything with red lentils and cilantro!

  225. Becky says:

    scrambled tofu :)

  226. Melissa says:

    Definitely a tough one, but I think that I’d have to go with Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s Roasted Butternut Alfredo or maybe her and Terry Hope Romero’s Tamarind Lentils. I’ve only made the former once, but it was divine. The latter is a regular recipe at my house though.

  227. Shannon C says:

    Pretty much any vegan Indian or Thai dish… the best stuff is the naturally vegan stuff!!

  228. Natalie says:

    I love vegetarian chili and vegan cornbread made in a cast-iron skillet

  229. sara says:

    That avocado salad looks amazing! My favorite meatless dish has got to be my sweet potato-black bean chili. So good!

  230. Katie says:

    I always fall back on rice dishes with egg. You can add any vegetable with soy sauce, and it makes a meal.

  231. Kathy Peterman says:

    My favorite meatless meal is Quinoa with Tempeh and veggies. Plus a nice sauce of peanut or nutritional yeast.

  232. Cadry says:

    I’d have to go with tacos! They’re a staple in my house for sure.

  233. Wow- this looks great! I just started dating an awesome vegan man and I’m slowly cutting out the dairy and learning about all the animal byproducts that I never even new existed in foods and other household items.

    As for a favorite meatless food- I’ll go with Indian Dal

  234. Cory Ann Martinez says:

    My favorite vegan dish is anything Mediterranean with chickpeas :)

  235. Colynn says:

    This cookbook (and recipe) look amazing, and I definitely agree that Martha Stewart writing a book like this is a step in the right direction. My favorite meatless dish is any kind of vegan pizza, but this avocado salad could most definitely replace it as my favorite dish. :)

  236. Toni says:

    I think it is absolutely fantastic what Martha is doing. I am a long time Vegan and I appreciate any effort that someone puts in to go meatless. The recipe above looks scrumptious. Yum!! Hard to say what my favorite recipe would be. I love food! thank you <3

  237. Rachel says:

    Veggie Curry!

  238. Nicole Goodwin says:

    Martha, yes! My absolute fave is brown rice pasta with garlicky mushrooms and kale, SOOO GOOD!!

  239. Elizabeth says:

    My favorite vegan food has to be butternut sqaush soup. Yummy I could eat it everyday.

  240. Phoo-d says:

    My favorite meatless meal is roasted vegetables over creamy polenta with big fat white beans. Glad to know that there are a lot of vegan recipes in this book. I saw another beautiful review but they didn’t mention that aspect and I was hesitating on buying a copy.

  241. Christa says:

    I have so many meatless favorites! Right now I am obsessed with stuffed acorn squash. The filling is apple/celery/shallots/zucchini spiced with garam masala… it’s delicious!

    I also LOVE a good chia pudding for breakfast :)

    You are so right, this cookbook is most certainly a step in the right direction… way to go Martha!!

  242. nzie says:

    I love soups, soups with lentils, soups with barley, soups with veggies. Funny thing.. 2 years ago.. I HATED soups… now.. I love them!

    (I hear this book has a killer white bean soup recipe. Yum!)

  243. Tiffany says:

    Either vegan Cincy-style chili or slow cooker vegetable soup!

  244. Shawna says:

    Wow! I didn’t even know this came out. Hope I win… :D

    I love roasted vegetables. All of them!

  245. Jamie Stone says:

    I love making spaghetti squash pasta with a bunch of veggies and a spicy sauce!

  248. Kerry says:

    I love zucchini enchiladas!

  249. Ana says:

    A nice salad with greens, veggies, quinoa and avocado, it is the best meal ever!!

  250. Karoline says:

    My favorite vegan meal…this winter, it’s been soup of all kinds. Most recently a spicy black bean soup.

  251. alessia says:

    My fav meatless dish HAS to be Butternut squash lasagna with celeriac layers instead of pasta sheets(for a gluten free option) and a white cannellini bean sauce instead of bechamel (for dairy free!!!).
    This scrumptious dish comes from the volcanic mind behind ‘My new roots’. Enjoy!!! ;)

  252. Emily says:

    I love lentil and sweet potato shepherd’s pie!

  253. Allison says:

    Vegetable coconut thai curry! Yum!

  254. Katherine Agapitos says:

    Lentil soup!

  255. Julia Henke-Hadley says:

    I have recently discovered spinach nuggets and am infatuated with them…..YUM!

  256. shannon says:

    Love Martha! The news of this book being released somehow slipped by me.
    My favorite meatless dish is veggie pho! There is a place in DC that makes their broth from fuji apples. It’s unbelievably good.

  257. holly says:

    My favorite food ever is guacamole. I’m very original.

  258. Jeanie Cox says:

    It’s hard to pick a favorite dish… I have lots of different cravings throughout the year. I will say broadly that I really enjoy a wide variety of vegetable soups and stews, including curries, tagines, chilies, dals, etc. I seem to be on a lentil and chickpea kick lately…

  259. sonja says:

    spring rolls with peanut sauce and black rice thai pudding….

  260. Rebecca W. says:

    My favorite meatless dish is lasagna, garlic bread and a big salad!

  261. keri says:

    I love Martha and am very psyched she is doing a meatless cookbook! I already know she juices. I would love to get it free!

  262. marion says:

    I would love to add this cookbook to my table. One of my favorites that I am making today is Kale salad with pickled shallots and mustard seeds, apples and pumpkin seeds. Love, love love.

  263. Kaye says:

    Any time of quinoa mix – salads, stuffings, pilafs!

  264. Karen D says:

    Today I have a cold, so I am craving tempeh in nutritional yeast gravy! Tomorrow, my tastes might be different!

  265. Rachel says:

    So impressed that Martha did this. My favorite meat-free food is burritos!

  266. Hannah says:

    Hooray! Any step towards the veg movement is one worth celebrating. Give me the charred eggplant dip any day and I’m a happy girl.

  267. Kirsten says:

    Yay! Two of my favourite things – vegan cooking and Martha Stewart – together at last! :) My favourite meatless dish has to be Curried Chickpeas and Kale. Nom!

  268. Nicole says:

    I also believe Martha’s new cookbook is a step in the right direction, and I’m pretty excited about it!

    My fave meatless dish these days is a thick, chunky vegetable soup!

  269. alex burdell says:

    I love Martha Stewart and am glad to see that she is bringing meatless to light. My favorite meatless dish would have to be glazed apple lentil walnut loaf.

  270. Lynnette says:

    I can’t wait to be a little Martha Stewart in the kitchen!

  271. Jen R says:

    A vegan Shepard’s Pie recipe that I found and adapted to meet my tastes. It was delicious!

  272. Michelle W says:

    I love portabello mushroom burgers!

  273. Christine says:

    My favorite meatless dish is vegan lasagna. If only it didn’t take 2 hours to make!

  274. Aimee Miklovic says:

    Vegan mac and cheese with butternut squash. And anything with avocados, duh.

  275. Krissy says:

    My favorite meatless dish is a quinoa and black bean stuffed pepper!

  276. Paula says:

    It makes my day when I see news like that – more and more people shifting to an plant based diet! I have done it very recently though, and that was something I would not consider a few years ago!

    Difficult to pick just one favourite dish, so I will go for the one I’ll be having tonight: beetroot risotto, one of the favourites here.

    Good luck everyone,


  277. Kim Y says:

    I guess *one* of my favorites would be lentil tacos :) Great blog!

  278. Sarah says:

    My favourite meatless dinner has got to be butternut squash and black bean galette. Mmmm. I’m pretty giddy that Martha (aren’t we all on a first name basis with her?) has devoted an entire book to meat free cooking. It is a step in the right direction that I really hope some of her flock embrace. We, and our planet, need this!

    Thanks for opportunity! :)

  279. Trezlen says:

    “Cream” of mushroom soup.

  280. Joanne Zdrojewski says:

    All my favorites are meatless! Philly style “Cheez steak” sandwiches would have to be my favorite… lots of onions, mushrooms, some seitan, and Dayia cheese!

  281. Cassandre says:

    Hi! thanks for sharing ;)
    My favorite meatless meal, is certainly lentil dhal. I do it several times in a week, sometime with coconut milk, tomato paste or even broth. So good!!

  282. Fernando Domeniconi says:

    I’m sure the recipes in this book are very good. My favorite meatless dish is Moroccan chickpea stew…

  283. There is absolutely no way I can pick just one dish to be my favorite – I just love everything too much. I do want to get my hands on this book though!

  284. Jen says:

    My favourite meatless dish would have to be a grain bowl : grains, grilled veggies, shredded marinated kale, beans and a sauce. Yum!

  285. James says:

    I’d have to say breakfast burritos. I make those every day!

  286. Amanda says:

    My favorite meatless dish has to be Portabello Stroganoff. It evokes memories of my mother’s stroganoff when I was a kid- but in a new and improved (and cruelty-free) way. Hints of red wine, fresh thyme, and nutritional yeast make it so so good.

  287. Mandy says:

    Sweet potato kale bake is my FAV!

  288. Kat says:

    pumpkin quinoa white bean chili = nomnomnom!

  289. KRISTIE ABSALON says:

    our favorite vegan meal is lasagna using a white bean tofu basil “cheese ” layer and a tvp/red lentil /green olive tomato sauce. Cashew “cheese” on the top before baking. YUM!

  290. Marissa says:

    Right now I’m craving Indian food, so definitely chana masala.

  291. Kyleigh says:

    Very cool, I love that this is becoming so main-stream that even Martha Stewart is doing it. I have a lot of fave meatless dishes, like practically everything, but i’d say one of my all time faves is a good red lentil, cashew burger and a massaged kale salad! YUM! Would love to win!

  292. Aleks says:

    looks really awesome and tasty!

  293. Caitlin says:

    yay! i’m excited about this book and would love a copy! my favorite dish is kind of ridiculous, but it’s true- massaged kale salad with avocado, hemp seeds, walnuts, mango, and spring mix.

  294. The avocado salad sounds just wonderful. I eat avocados nearly every day, and this would be a great way to change up my normal avocado dishes. My favorite meatless meal is a plate of roasted sweet potatoes, cauliflower, and broccoli with some quinoa or beans and a little bowl of maple mustard for dipping!

  295. Julia says:

    I’m a diehard Martha fan, so I would love this book! It’s hard to pick just one fave meatless dish, but I’m going with nachos! They’re so versatile and delicious.

  296. My favorite never-fail, go-to dessert when we have company coming? Martha Stewart’s Apple Pie Cake. You can easily swap out the butter for a vegan substitute and it is DELICIOUS. People always ask for the recipe and are very surprised to find it’s cruelty-free! http://www.marthastewart.com/341316/apple-pie-cake

    So psyched about your giveaway – count me in as another Martha fanatic!

  297. Ali says:

    I’ve been coveting this book! I’d love to win it. My fav meatless dish is risotto – so many options!

  298. Emily says:

    My favorite meatless dish is vegan chili. Yum!

  299. Laura says:

    I’d be hard-pressed to choose a single favorite “meatless” dish since everything I eat is meatless. Maybe some sort of curry?

  300. Ania K says:

    I’m so glad that Martha came out with a vegetarian/vegan book! My favorite dish is chickpea noodle soup.

  301. Genevieve says:

    This looks so good! My favorite veggie meal is sweet potato & black bean burritos…

  302. corinne says:

    Not very original, but pineapple pizza is my favorite meat-free dinner!

  303. Stacy says:

    I love Martha and I’m SO glad she is getting more and more into vegetarian/vegan cooking. Yay! Pad Thai is just my fav dish – period.
