Boston Organics has started a new series of posts for Meatless Monday recipes in order to offer ideas for vegetarian dinners and also to encourage a reduction in weekly meat consumption. This encourages a more sustainable lifestyle. Meatless Mondays are a way to show our customers that vegetable-based meals can be hearty and delicious and that they are a nutritious and environmentally responsible way to eat. This week’s featured recipe is for BBQ Beet Burgers.
