NEW YORK, March 27 (UPI) -- British music icon Paul McCartney has contributed some favorite vegetarian recipes for "The Meat Free Monday Cookbook," published this month by Kyle Books.

In addition to recipes by McCartney and his daughters Stella and Mary, the book includes contributions from some of their famous friends such as Mario Batali, Woody Harrelson, Vivienne Westwood, Kevin Spacey and Pink. The McCartney family also wrote the book's introduction.

"We applaud the McCartney family's unwavering efforts to promote a healthier, more sustainable diet," said Sid Lerner, who helped found the Meatless Monday movement in 2003. "This beauty of a cookbook is truly a delicious way to help spread the global Meatless Monday movement."

"While many solutions can be quite difficult to put into practice, the idea of one meat free day per week is something that many people find do-able and something that can be achieved relatively easily," McCartney said in a statement Monday.
