Kasha and Pesto Varnishkes

Kasha and Varnishkes is a traditional Eastern European dish made with Buckwheat groats and bowtie noodles, and usually cottage cheese. I use pesto here to add the richness of the cheese and added flavor, and add veggies as well.

Use whole-grain noodles for fiber as well as flavor too!

 

Walnut Roast

This is such a rich and savory dish with the walnuts lending a deep, meaty flavor. Try it substituting other nuts or sunflower seeds

Collard Wraps

This meal can simply be leftovers wrapped in steamed collard leaves.

Salad and dressing is wonderful; so are grains with mustard, shredded carrot and sliced peppers, just as examples. These wraps are a staple in a plant-based meal plan! I would say the only thing that doesn’t go in a collard wrap is peanut butter and jelly! Here is a recipe using hummus. The recipe for hummus can be found here.

Lentil and Rice Loaf

This flavorful loaf is perfect for the holidays, or anytime you want a hearty main dish. It can be made with fresh or dried herbs. Make two loaves while you’re at it and freeze one for later!

Winter Stew

This is a ‘tried and true’ recipe that I have been making for many years. It really is delicious, and perfect for the chilly season….

Spinach Tofu Soufflé

Enjoy this baked French classic without animal products.  This cheesy sauce can also be used in other recipes that use cheese.  It's also good over baked potatoes, steamed vegetables and grains!

Ginger Roasted Tempeh w/ Vegetables

This is a lovely, meaty dish that can be modified with vegetables that you have around.
 
If aiming for gluten-free, make sure that the tempeh does not have barley.

Venezuelan Black Beans and Rice

The traditional combination of rice and beans together makes a nice pilaf dish, with many varieties across the world, including this one! Make plenty for dinner, as the extra is a great filling for wraps made for tomorrow's lunch! Note that there are no health needs to eat rice and beans together, it just tastes good.
 

Veggie Barley Stew

A basic stew using this ancient grain that deserves attention!
Barley has a chewy texture, like pasta.

Corn Chili

Chili is one of the most satisfying and filling meals, good for lunch, for dinner, and for snacks. Here's a basic, hearty chili recipe brimming with vegetables. This actually isn't hot, but you can up the spice if you prefer hotter flavors by adding hot red pepper flakes.
