THE RECIPES
Tempeh Burger with Tahini Slaw

by @cookingforpeanuts

For anyone that thinks they don't like tempeh, this might be the dinner that changes your mind. A generous addition of BBQ sauce turns this burger up a notch, and the simple cabbage slaw is the perfect complement to the burger.

Feedfeed Tip Not sold on tempeh? You can always sub it out for tofu or your favorite homemade veggie burger. 
Pasta with Creamy Basil Spinach Sauce

by @naturally.jo

This simple, herbaceous dinner is one that you'll crave...often. The addition of almond milk and tofu to the basil sauce adds a delicate creaminess that's hard to pass up.

Feedfeed Tip Pressing tofu is a great way to remove excess moisture. Wrap the block of tofu in paper towels, and lay something heavy across the top of it, like a cast-iron pan. Let it sit for at least 15 minutes while the moisture leaks out of the tofu.

 
 
Sweet Potato Noodles with Maple-Glazed Tempeh and Kale

by @hannah_chia

This tempeh marinade is not for the lighthearted. Bursting with nutty tahini, sweet maple syrup, and a kick of rice vinegar, this simple mixture will take an ordinary package of tempeh to the next level. Served with swirls of sweet potato noodles and hearty kale, this sweet and sour tempeh is the weeknight dinner you've been waiting for.

Feedfeed Tip Short on time? Some specialty grocery stores sell pre-spiralized sweet potato noodles, so you don't have to go through the trouble or peeling and prepping the spud.
Curried Cauliflower Tacos

by @thefoodwright

Say no to boring dinners and say yes to these wildly flavorful curried cauliflower tacos. Garnished with a drizzle of tahini and fresh cilantro, these tacos are not short on flavor.

Feedfeed Tip Cauliflower is definitely a veggie that you want to cook in the oven versus on a skillet. Because the florets vary in size and dimension, it's much easier to let the heat of the convection oven evenly cook the cauliflower versus standing over the skillet to ensure that all sides of the floret are cooked to perfection.
 
BBQ Jackfruit Sandwich

by @plantbasedblonde

Think sloppy joe, but for this case, we'll call it a sloppy jack, right? This hearty sandwich is an easy way to get dinner on the table after a busy day, and it's something the whole family can enjoy. Not to mention, save a little for the next day and you've got yourself a delicious lunch, to boot.

Dairy Free Creamy Tomato Penne

by @bitesbymi

Bet you never knew that you can create a luxuriously creamy tomato sauce without any dairy? Instead, this sauce gets its irresistible texture from a ripe avocado and olive oil.

Feedfeed Tip If the vegan pasta dishes that you're making for dinner aren't satiating enough, keep a package of grilled tofu or tempeh on hand to add an extra burst of hearty, filling protein to your meal.
 
Acai Berry Tart

by @bos.kitchen

Craving something fruity and sweet? This is just what you're looking for. If you can't get your hands on Acai powder, this tart is still delicious without it, although it's definitely an added bonus if you can find some.
