Portobello “Roast Beef” Sandwiches with Vegan Chipotle Mayo

By  •  Main Dish

Mushrooms are definitely my favorite meat substitute. Sliced very thin and sautéed with a little soy sauce and garlic, they’re melt-in-your-mouth soft and bursting with amazing umami flavors. I’ve used that same process in many, many recipes, but today I want to take it a step further to make slices of “roast beef.” By using portobello mushrooms, we can make large, thin slices that fold perfectly onto a sandwich for …

Quinoa Tabbouleh with Lentils and Olives

By  •  Main Dish

Tabbouleh is the Mediterranean dish of bulgur wheat with finely-chopped parsley, lemon juice, and often mint and tomatoes as well. Over the years, I’ve developed my own version of this dish with a base of quinoa instead of wheat, lots of parsley, and whatever else I have on hand. In fact, over 4 years ago, this quinoa tabbouleh was the second-ever recipe I posted on this blog. Just look at …

California Sushi Roll with Vegan Crab Meat

By  •  Main Dish

Vegan sushi is one of my favorite meals. It might sound like an oxymoron since sushi is basically synonymous with fish, but a veggie roll with avocado and rice in some nori is basically the perfect plant-based meal. Recently I started thinking about how to make a vegan version of the classic California roll with cucumber, avocado, and crab. The interesting thing is, many California rolls are made with Surimi, …

Peanut-Glazed Sweet Potatoes + A Quinoa Buddha Bowl

By  •  Main Dish

When you think of sweet potatoes, peanut butter might not be the first thing you think to pair with them, but I recently discovered that the two couldn’t be better together. The sweet, starchy potatoes and the creamy peanut butter are perfection. In this recipe, we’re dicing the potatoes and baking them with a peanut-soy-sesame glaze that bakes around each bite. Seriously, this is one of those recipes where I …

Easy Slow-Cooker Potato Ratatouille

Ratitoue, er, rattitoullie, uh, Ratuhtwoey? However you spell it, the only reason any of us have ever heard of this simple French vegetable dish is because of the Pixar movie. There’s actually a lot of different ways it can be made, but all of them involve thinly-slicing squash, peppers, onions, and usually eggplant into thin rounds and lining them around a pan with herbs and butter. Since my garden is …

Udon Noodle Stir-Fry with Sesame Broth

By  •  Main Dish

Udon noodles, as you probably know, are Japanese-style wheat noodles. On the surface, they seem a lot like Italian pasta, and the two are more similar than different (both are wheat-based noodles). The main difference is that udon are made with a different type of wheat that results in a softer, more “plump” texture when cooked. You would traditionally serve udon in a full soup broth, but I didn’t like …

Alfredo Sauce 2.0 with Cauliflower and Cashews

By  •  Main Dish

This isn’t the first time I’ve posted a vegan Alfredo sauce recipe. In fact, it’s not even the second time. But I think this one is the best. What we have here is a simple 8-ingredient mashup of all the best cream sauces I’ve made over the years. It’s part cauliflower Alfredo (which everyone knows about by now), part cashew Alfredo, which is super creamy but really high in fat …

No-Tuna Chickpeas and Shells

By  •  Main Dish

If your freezer is now stocked with bags of freshly-made chickpeas after my tutorial a few weeks ago, I can’t think of anything better to do with them than make this super-simple chickpea tuna salad, which is great on sandwiches or salads, but also makes some amazing no-tuna & shells. In all honesty, I remember tuna and shells tasting super gross when I was a kid. Mayonnaise and canned fish …
