7 Meatless Mains (+ What to Wash Them Down With)

January  4, 2015

The easiest way to make dinner feel special is to pair it with a great beverage -- whether a cocktail, a smoothie, or something more akin to dessert, a fancy libation punctuates any meal and enlivens an otherwise ordinary weeknight. 

No matter if you're a veteran vegetarian or you've resolved to cut back on meat in 2015, Meatless Monday will be undoubtedly more fun with a good drink in hand. Here are a few of our favorite meatless mains and what to wash them down with:
