{Giveaway} The Meat Lover’s Meatless Cookbook

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries***

And the winner is…Alicia whose favorite meatless meal is “veggie lasagna, heavy on the veggies.”  Congratulations!


I always find myself trying to cook at least 2 meatless meals per week even though nobody in my family is a vegetarian.  There are so many benefits to cooking meatless:  the meals are usually less expensive, it provides less strain on the environment and can help minimize your carbon foot print.  Best of all, meatless meals can also open your mind to a variety of new foods you never thought to try!

When my husband and I were first married he let out a small groan when he heard we were eating a meatless meal that night.  He is a “meat and potatoes” kind of guy and thought that a meal without meat would never be able to fill him up.  That is why I was so happy when I came across this cookbook, The Meat Lover’s Meatless Cookbook by Kim O’Donnel.  It is full of hearty and delicious recipes that both meat lovers and carnivorous will enjoy.

The cook book is loaded with delicious recipes that leave your meat lover satisfied.

This week, we are giving away one copy of this fabulous book to one of our readers!  To enter, just leave a comment below telling us your favorite meatless meal.  We’ll select a winner by random on Thursday afternoon!

Good Luck!

  1. Hands down, my favorite vegetarian recipe is bean and cheese enchiladas. Yum!

  2. I adore a good veggie stir fry. Especially in the summer, when it all comes straight from the farm market. I can’t wait!

  3. Tina W.

    My favorite meatless meal is a grilled cheese sandwich with a cup of Egyptian tomato soup from the Kitchn.(http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/healthy/recipe-egyptian-tomato-soup-123308)

  4. Leslie

  6. Gina

    I love making veggie lasagna! Summer squash, zucchini, eggplant YUM!

  7. liz

    I love spinach lasagna and hearty lentil and vegatable soup.

  8. any mix of fresh vegetables and/or fruit … black bean burgers with avocado and sriracha

  9. I have been going very meatless lately. I have a bunch of favorites but right now I’m loving simple black bean + cheese quesadillas and roasted (non-breaded) eggplant rolatini!

  10. Eggplant Parmesan, stir frys with tofu and anything with black beans or chickpeas as the starring role!

  11. April

    I make lentil tacos that are WONDERFUL! Even the kids like them. Hmmm…Maybe I’ll make some this week.

  12. Kellie

    If my fiancee weren’t a big meat eater, I could easily eat vegetarian 5 days a week. Any take on Mexican or Asian cuisine subbing tofu or beans for meat is simple and delish!

  13. Wow – this cookbook needs to be in my collection! I am a 10 year vegetarian but my bf is a hardcore meat eater. Fortunately, he is also open-minded so he will eat anything I make, including tofu, but it would be great to expand on my meaty meatless recipes!

    Right now our favorite is tacos made with soy crumbles. Spicy, hearty, and less greasy than hamburger…we both love them!

  15. Traci

    My fave meatless meal is simple cheese ravioli with spaghetti sauce loaded with veggies!!!

  16. Lynn

    We eat meatless 2-3 times per week. It took about 3 months, but I think the hubby is finally comfortable with it. I don’t have a veggie cookbook per se, so this giveaway is right up my alley. Thanks!

  17. kathryn

    Love me some roasted veggie lasagna! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  18. Kaitlin

    I eat meatless all the time! It’s so yummy, so fast, and I love bright flavors. One of my favorites is an asparagus, farro, lentil, couscous, (grain mix) salad with goat cheese and meyer lemon. Mmmm Mmmm good!

  19. Kelly

    Love , Love, Love, Meatless Lasagna!!!!!! So simple and so Yummy!!!!

  20. I have a meatless spaghetti sauce that is more like a vegetable chili in texture and substance than it is a sauce and is so nutritious.

  21. Sarah H

    My favorite meatless meal I recently discovered is an enchilada with beans, tofu, and diced sweet potato topped with fresh avocado! It sounds a bit crazy but is so delicious and filling. I am finishing my last year at Marquette and could definitely use this cookbook to start my collection out on my own.

  22. Lara Rowe Klauke

    I’ve been testing out some meatless lasagna ingredients lately. I also really enjoy a good bean burrito for a quick dinner night as well. My hubby is definitely a meat and potatoes person though too!

  23. Kate Corman

    Black bean burgers are my fave!!

  24. Katie K

    I recently discovered quinoa. I really like a Mediterranean quinoa salad I found. My husband who usually doesn’t venture far from his comfort foods really enjoyed it too. Now it is one of his favorites!

  25. Sally

    This is great! My husband is a meat-eater who does not cook, and I am a baking/cooking fanatic who has been a vegetarian for 15 years. I love that there is a collection of hearty veggie meals for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.

  26. One of my favorites is a tofu stir-fry that my husband makes Kung Pao style. So yummy and no need for meat!

  27. Stacy

    Sweet potato burritos with lots of guacamole! YUM-A-RIFIC!! xo

  28. Kim

    Pasta with all sorts of yummy veggies (zucchini, cherry tomatoes) and just topped with some olive oil and good Parmesan cheese. Perfect summer meal.

  29. My favorite meatless meal is black bean soup. I make it in a crock pot & blend it with an immersion blender- delicious & perfect for cold winter nights.

  30. Jennifer Schilling

    I love meat, but I do try to eat less of it. Nothing beats grilled vegetables on the grill – with a little Parmesan at the end, it’s healthy and friends/family are always amazed how something so simple can be so good and filling!

  31. bridget

    My favorite is a lentil walnut burger that I had for lunch today! But, my husband is a protein freak, so it’s hard to get him to eat vegetarian. This book would totally help!

  32. nicole

    I love a good spinach lasagna!

  33. SW Stuffed Acorn Squash! Thanks for such a great giveaway, I’ve heard good things about this cookbook!

    Gorgonzola Pasta. Rigatoni, good quality gorgonzola, sauteed mushrooms, basil and cream.

  36. Haley

    Beans (any kind) and brown rice. I make a huge pot of both and can get so many meals out of them for so little money. So filling, too.

  37. angela

    I love to make a wonderful recipe from the Food Network Magazine. Stuffed chessy shells with spinach, a ton of yummy chesses and tofu topped with a homemade veggie sauce. So good and so easy to make!

    I’ve just started adopting a vegetarian lifestyle. Right now I am loving sauted mushrooms and spinach with roasted garlic and olive oil, then topped with some Fontinella cheese and placed on a thin bun! YUM!

  39. Mariangela

    Vegetable Minestrone (no pasta or beans) from the Harry’s Bar Cookbook

  40. Aimee P

    Taco night with all the fixin’s: lots of veggies, different grains, a variety of beans, and a table full of salsa and mole choices!

  48. My favorite meatless meal is roasted curry veggies over coconut rice! And sometimes I add a dollop of greek yogurt to lighten the curry kick!

  54. Linda Smith

    Asparagus quiche.

  55. Rebecca

    Soy bean stroganoff. Sauteed onions and mushrooms with tomato paste, soy beans, garlic, paprika, a bit of vege stock and then sour cream (or toffuti) – served with egg noodles or rice. Comfort food that you’ll only realise is not meat if someone mentions it.

  56. Oh I would love to win this! I struggle with coming up with meatless ideas that the boyfriend will enjoy as he too is a meat and potatoes guy.

  57. Ruth

    I love spicy indian curries and other hearty vegetarian entrees (like one of my personal favorites – aloo gobi – consisting of potatoes & cauliflower in spicy sauce). They are warm, filling and you truly don’t miss meat. Thanks to a wonderfully stocked asian market nearby, I am able to reproduce my favorites utilizing prepared spice blends – since I am an admittedly “lazy cook”! A new cookbook is a coveted thing in my family and I’d be thrilled to receive this Meatlovers Meatless cookbook. Thanks for the opportunity, I love your blog!

  58. Emily Sack

    One of my favorites is stuffed portobella mushrooms!

  59. Anne

    Penne pasta with fresh spicy basil tomato sauce!

  60. I love any kind of risotto! Yum!!

  61. Dana

    I love to make this simple mushroom and spinach lasagna noodle rolls. It is delicious. I make it for guests all the time.


  62. Katie

    I love any kind of pasta primavera!!! Veggie pizza is awesome as well

  63. Charity

    Lentil meatballs…yummy! Or a big old pot of beans.

  64. Mary

    Love me some of my mom’s homemade, baked macaroni and cheese topped with toasted breadcrumbs!

  65. Sara

    definitely Eggplant parm!

  66. Linda

    Even though we are senior citizens, we are learning to eat healthy and smart just like our daughter and her husband. Meatless meals are MUCH appreacited by me, but far less by my husband. I think this book would help a lot to win him over. In the meantime, he’s usually happy with Dreamfield’s lower carb pasta with homemade marinara and fresh basil leaves.

  67. This book is exactly what I need! My favorite meatless meal is a veggie lasagna, heavy on the veggies!

  68. For my family it’s baked pasta or meatless Monday’s black beans and rice tacos. My personal favorite is a portabella sandwich.

  69. A good spring risotto with veggie stock, peas and a lot of parmesean. So filling, you don’t miss the meat!

  70. Particularly during CSA season, sometimes it’s fun to just whip up a quick fritatta to use up some of the random veggies in our box

  71. Abby

    I love eggplant parmesan!

  72. This would be a perfect cookbook to add to my household since my hubby is a meat & potatos guy too!

    I love Mushroom Pasta (spaghetti with mushrooms in a cream sauce)

  73. My favorite meatless meal? Vegetarian chili with a whole-grain roll. And/or a veggie-packed frittata. Mmm.

  74. Regan

    Rice and veggie stir-fry, or same in a tortilla for rice and veggie burrito!

  75. Alison

    one favorite meatless meal at our house has always been spinach quiche. I also love eggplant parmesan!

  76. Elizabeth

    Stuffed peppers! Yum….

  77. jamieliz

    We make a lot of veggie fajitas here with seitan, peppers, and onions! I’d LOVE to win the book!

  78. Steph

    My husband and I like black bean burgers served with salsa. 🙂


  80. o what a good idea! the fiance (whootwhoot we just got engaged!) and i eat quite a few meat-less meals through out the week, one of our favorites is hash with potatoes, green peppers, red peppers, onions all fried up together with a bisuit on the side 🙂 suprisingly v filling! xoxo jcd :: cornflake dreams

  81. Rebecca

    I really have a hard time coming up with meatless meals. My hubbie loves meat in his dinner and is upset if it’s missing. One that I did sneak by was baked potato soup. There was the option of bacon…but so little. I had to count that as meatless. 🙂

  82. Mel G.

    Homemade pizza with fresh ricotta, mozzarella, and cherry tomatoes!

  83. Meatless Mondays are my new obsession – mostly because I get to be creative in making all-vegetarian (but usually vegan) recipes! I love making a base of quinoa and adding different mix-ins to make it delicious and different every time. Last time I included dried cranberries and it was AMAZING.

  84. Debbie D

    One of my favorites especially in the winter in cold and snowy central NY is veggie chili all spicy and warm!!

  85. Jennifer

    Grilled zucchini stuffed with spelt berries, mushrooms, and tomato sauce – topped with fresh mozzarella!
