Meatless Monday Partner – Ladle of Love

Chef, food and lifestyle writer, and business owner Leslie Lampert has been pursuing her love for locally produced food for over 30 years. Her take-out soup shop, Ladle of Love, has a seasonally-driven menu featuring fresh ingredients from neighborhood farms. These hearty soups are a satisfying and delicious choice for a meatless meal!

“We practice Meatless Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday…every day of the week, because we offer very many vegetarian and vegan dishes every day,” said Lampert.

While the menu changes daily, you can be sure to find some meatless dishes at Ladle of Love.

“Every day we feature Harvest Celebration, Chunky Vegetable, and Tuscan Tomato, all three of which are vegan. We also rotate a lot of specials, many of which are meatless. Fan favorites include quinoa vegetarian chili, vegan potato leek soup, and curry vegetable stew,” she said.

Beyond supporting local farmers and growers, Leslie is active with several charitable initiatives around Westchester. As the Culinary Team at the Boys & Girls Club of Northern Westchester,

Lade of Love provides over 1,000 children hot meals per week. Leslie also works with Bedford 2020, as one of the pilot business for the green business project. She also sits on the business board, and provided food through Ladle of Love for the Climate Summit on February 3rd!

“I’ve worked with Bedford 2020 since the beginning, because I am very conscientious about the energy and carbon footprint of my businesses,” said Leslie. “I’m a big supporter of the organization, and I love the people who run it—I love everyone there.”
