Every week I tempt you with a tasty-looking vegetarian dish for Meatless Monday, but when I realized that this week Monday was also World Vegetarian Day, I wanted to do something more.

So to properly celebrate World Vegetarian Day, here are five Meatless Monday recipe ideas featuring rice and beans. I bet at least one of them will be a hit at your house!
