2. Vegan Chilaquiles
A plant-based version of a Mexican favorite, this dish holds its own without eggs or cheese. If you’re feeling ambitious, make the salsa verde from scratch!
3. Cranberry Pumpkin Muffins
This is the essential fall muffin. We like to make them with cranberries, but you can easily swap out the cranberries with chocolate chips or walnuts.
4. French Lentil Soup
French lentils are heartier and tend to hold their shape far better than other varieties. This is a great soup to make in winter when you’re craving a warm meal.
5. Spinach and Mushroom Quiche
Who says you need eggs to make a fantastic quiche? Serve yourself a slice (or two) of our vegan Spinach and Mushroom Quiche for a hearty breakfast.
6. Corn Chowder
Don’t you just love a warm, creamy bowl of corn chowder? It’s easy enough to whip up, just remember to get your cashews soaking the night before.
7. Homemade Meatballs
These homemade meatballs pack a whopping 25 grams of protein per serving! Pair these beauties with some whole-wheat pasta and marinara from scratch.
8. Split Pea Soup with Tempeh Bacon and Chipotle Cream
This soup from Tal Ronnen is hearty and has a wonderful smoky flavor. If you’re in a rush, just skip the tempeh bacon and chipotle cream.
9. Curried Chickpea Salad
Our Curried Chickpea Salad is a super easy recipe that will make your glad you brought your lunch to work. Plus, it comes together in minutes, so you won’t hesitate.
10. Asian Baked Tofu
This Asian Baked Tofu is amazing with carrots and sautéed greens. Save the leftovers to toss in your salad or a veggie wrap the next day.
