We’re all working on our drought plans to save water in the bathroom, laundry room, and garden. But what about in the kitchen? Recent news says if we want to have a big impact on the drought, we have to address the biggest guzzler, food production. Specifically, producing meat uses a whole lot of water; growing vegetables uses a whole lot less. That’s sounding like meatless most-days to me, not just meatless Mondays. Fortunately, great vegetarian cooking is a click away. Check out Sunset’s top 6 vegetarian recipes for the drought, and let me know what you think.
