Saving in NEO has joined the Meatless Monday movement!

From the Meatless Monday website: “Going meatless once a week may reduce your risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. It can also help reduce your carbon footprint and save precious resources like fresh water and fossil fuel.”

This week’s Meatless Monday meal was Stovetop Casserole.

Here is what you need:

1 box Stovetop (I used the Cornbread flavor)

1 can Great Northern Beans (substitute cubed chicken if you want a meat version)

1 bag of Steamfresh rice and veggies mix

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1/2 can water


Mix all ingredients in a casserole dish.  Bake for 45 minutes at 350.

I love this meal because it is tasty and filling.  We always have the ingredients in the pantry making it a staple in our recipe box.

Previous meals: Potato Boats, Baked Spaghetti 

Be sure to check out the Meatless Monday website to take the pledge and find more great recipes.

I know this won’t appeal to most, but its something I use daily as I have an infant I’m nursing. I have found this brand to be my favorite. All the big box stores sell these, but I find Amazon to be a much better price, its like getting a whole box or package for free when comparing.
