Editorial Reviews

Review

"McCartney is returning to her roots and following in her mother's footsteps with "The Meat Free Monday Cookbook." The idea is to show people how easy it would be to not eat meat one day a week by offering seasonal recipes, from a spring ragout of artichoke hearts, broad beans, peas and turnips to a leek and ricotta tart. More an environmental conversation than a vegetarian one, the book draws its inspiration from the Meat Free Monday campaign that McCartney, her father and sister Mary launched in London in 2009 in an attempt to bring light to the detrimental effects of the agricultural industry." -- The Wall Street Journal

"The Meat Free Monday Cookbook is a beauty of a book, packed with 52 weeks of healthful, seasonal meals sure to inspire individuals of all culinary persuasions. We applaud the McCartney family's unwavering efforts to promote a healthier, more sustainable diet. This latest endeavor is a truly delicious way to continue the spread of the global Meatless Monday movement!" -- Sid Lerner, Meatless Monday Founder and Chairman

The Meatless Monday campaign has picked up steam as celebrities, and celebrity chefs, have jumped onboard. This book, with a foreword by Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney, plans out every meal and snack for a year’s worth of Mondays. You’ll recognize some of the recipe contributors, who include Woody Harrelson, Pink, Kevin Spacey and Mario Batali.”—The Washington Post’s Summer Cookbooks to Keep You in the Kitchen

9. Vegetarian cookbookTrying to encourage your friends and family to eat less meat? The Meat Free Monday Cookbook—brainchild of Paul McCartney and his daughters, fashion designer Stella McCartney and photographer Mary McCartney—will help them cook in a veggie-centric way and still get all their nutrients.An offshoot of the McCartneys' Meat Free Monday campaign, the book shows how simple it is to go veggie one day a week. The recipes are built around produce, good fats, and alternative protein sources (whole grains, beans, soy, and nuts). (The Healthiest Gifts of 2012 Fox News, December 6, 2012)

Is one of your resolutions to eat less meat this year? From the minds behind the Meat Free Monday campaign, this beautifully photographed cookbook will walk you through an entire year of meat-free Mondays. That's breakfast, lunch, and dinner taken care of....every Monday...for an entire year. Fruits, vegetables, and grains galore. What's not to love? (Emma Christensen The Kitchn, 1/7/2013)

The McCartneys have long been anti-meat, but it's not just about healthier and cruelty-free — they also are concerned about climate change. When they set out to support this cookbook, though, they found that going meatless once a week had impacts on people's pocketbooks, as well. All of that may be true, but this collection of recipes is also excellent because the dishes are delicious — 13 weeks' worth of three meals each, plus dessert, and they are vegetarian, not vegan, so there are eggs and cheese in many, organized by season. (The Denver Post, 12/10/13)

From the Author

"The vast majority of people are conscientious and would want to do something in their own lives to help secure a happier future for the generations that follow.While many suggestions offered can be quite difficult to put into practice, the idea of one meat-free day per week is something that many people find doable and something that, with the help of this book, can be achieved relatively easily."--from the Foreword by Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney

Customer Reviews

Prep and cooking instructions are clear and easy to follow.
Chip Duckett
This cookbook has helped me realize that what the review and rating system is missing is the ability to give a book negative stars.
Jenni M. Parks
If I had the time I could easily cook something out of this cookbook and be happy.

This cookbook truly is perfect for those who would like to cut down on meat, but feel intimidated about preparing a variety of vegetarian meals that will satisfy. But it's a great resource for experienced vegetarians as well.

This is one of the most sensible (and appetizing) vegetarian cookbooks I have ever read. It provides one full day's menu (Breakfast, Lunch, Snack, Dinner, Dessert) for each week in a year. It even provides TWO lunch menus per day each week, one for those who pack and take a lunch to work/school and one for those who cook lunch at home.

Most of the recipes are pretty easy to prepare, and few use ingredients that are not fairly easily found. Prep and cooking instructions are clear and easy to follow. Breakfasts, lunches, and snacks tend to be relatively quick-prep and low on the number of ingredients -- dinner offers more complex recipes and more ingredients (perfect, as this is the way most people actually cook). This cookbook was clearly written as a "gateway to vegetarianism" cookbook (and includes some VERY basic recipes like hummus and hash browns), but longtime vegetarians will find many suggestions that they might not have considered, and experienced cooks will still find many ideas for new dishes.

The book is arranged seasonally, with weekly recipes using seasonal produce for each week in Spring/Summer/Fall/ Winter. A wide variety of vegetarian proteins are included in the recipes.

Things to note: there are not photos of most dishes -- that would not be possible with the number of recipes included. And this cookbook is vegetarian, NOT vegan -- eggs, cheese, and butter are everywhere.

This cookbook was a birthday gift from a friend, and I literally read it from cover to cover right away. I'm making the Cauliflower Korma for dinner tomorrow night! (Ten easy ingredients and under half an hour prep/cook).

I just recently came off of a fruit and vegetable fast and decided afterwards that it would be better for me to modify my diet, by eating healthier and making better choices. The Meat Free Monday Cookbook, is a great book for anyone who desires to cook as well as impress yourself and the person you're cooking for. On page 82, there is a Summer Coleslaw that is really great!

The recipes are tasty, and there's a lot of variety. The pictures are gorgeous. Beware, this is NOT a diet book, it's just plain GOOD tasting meatless cookbook.

This is a terrific vegetarian cookbook that isn't just for Mondays! It is divided by seasons so you can eat what is fresh and local and each Monday's menu has recipes for breakfast, lunch, snax, dinner & dessert. All the recipes are fabulous, ingredients easily procured at your local Farmer's Market or supermarket, and go together quickly -- so far there hasn't been anything that takes hours to make.

I originally purchased this cookbook as a gift for a friend who doesn't think a meal is complete without meat. When the book came out a couple of the recipes had been featured in magazine articles and I thoroughly enjoyed them. We cooked from the cookbook when I spent a week at her house and was so impressed I ordered one for myself and now I'm cooking my way through it. This is the best vegetarian cookbook I've purchased in years.

I was interested in attempting to become more vegetarian so I purchased this cookbook. The reviews were good. I am very happy with the decision to give it a try. The recipes are easy to follow and you don't have to purchase a bunch of strange items.
Even my meat eating husband enjoys the recipes.
Highly recommend this book if you are vegetarian or interested in adding a Meat Free Day to your menu.

I've read many vegetarian cookbooks. They all seem to have the same recipes. But this cookbook is by far the best. The recipes are not diet recipes they are just very original, great tasting recipes. If I had the time I could easily cook something out of this cookbook and be happy. The cookbook is also divided by season and the recipes include vegetables and fruit that are in season and good prices at the grocery store.
Sample recipe titles: Tangy Cauliflower Relish and Cheese Sandwich (yes please!), Cheese and Asparagus Croquettes (if you insist!), Zucchini Cupcakes (great recipe), Bayd Mahsmi (fancy deviled egg for a snack), Feta and Couscous Salad with Pomegranate (see what I mean by original?), Fig and Goat Cheese Salad, Fennel Sautéed with Peppers (dear Fennel, where have you been all my life?), Fruity Quinoa, (brilliant!).
Obviously not a vegan cookbook, but the first original, well written cookbook I've seen in awhile. Oh and the pictured are fantastic.

People that are just starting to have meat free Mondays and people that never eat meat can enjoy this book. The world can change if more people would consider a meat free Monday. Besides that they will have a lovely meal using these precipices. Healthy and delicious.
