If you're looking for family-friendly ideas for Meatless Monday, I think homemade mac and cheese is something that's always going to be a hit, and this Brussels Sprout Mac & Cheese from Love and Olive Oil bumps up the nutrition by adding Brussels sprouts to the mix.

Grilled Halloumi Cheese Skewers
