Silk #MeatlessMonday Challenge
Football season is here and that means loading up on healthy snacks to munch on during the games. I made a joke on Twitter last week that the only reason I know it’s Fall is because there is football on in our house on weekend mornings. It has been so hot here in SoCal that it really doesn’t feel like Fall, but football season makes it feel a bit more like it!
Meatless Monday is a trend that’s been going strong for several years now on social media. While I’m not a vegetarian (and very far from it), I appreciate eating a plant based diet. I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables myself. I do enjoy making plant based snacks and allergen free foods that everyone can eat. Silk is doing a #MeatlessMondayNight challenge right now and I found this recipe for cashew hummus on their site. It sounded really tasty so I decided to make it with a few modifications:
- One extra cup of cashews instead of garbanzo beans
- 1/4 cup Silk Cashew Milk
- Gluten-free tamari instead of soy sauce
I served it with carrot sticks and it was yummy! If you are a fan of regular hummus you might want to stick to garbanzo beans, but the added cashews worked for me and we enjoyed it.
I didn’t know Silk made cashew milk until recently and it was really tasty. I like what they are doing on their Sideline Meat website. Their goal is to show you that you can change in small ways just by dedicating one meal to being plant based and meat free. Baby steps are always a great way to start towards your goal and this is a great way to do this.
If you are having people over for football this weekend I encourage you to check out the Sideline Meat community for some yummy recipes and see what you come up with. Cashew hummus is something I never thought of making before and now I’m looking forward to making it again!
What about you? How do you incorporate plant based foods into your diet? Post in the comments and let me know.
