Avocado Smash Sandwich

Sandwiches are convenient and familiar. All a great one demands are a creamy spread, and crunchy veggies between hearty bread, and voilà: you have lunch!

Morning Muesli

Having a jar of ready-made muesli in the fridge is a safe way to ensure a satisfying and filling breakfast througout the week! Store in the fridge, as nuts and seeds can go rancid otherwise.

Try one of the many nut, seed, bean or grain milks on the marktet, (look for no added sweetener and minimal ingredients). You will find one that you love!

 

Teriyaki Quinoa w/ Chickpeas

Here's Julieanna's saucy stir-fry brimming with the flavor of garlic and ginger - satisfying for any meal.

Salad Dressings

Here's a collection of yummy and oil-free dressings that add flavor to any green salad.

Guac and Chips, Free from Oil

Guacamole is such a satisfying spread, dip and topping, commonly scooped up with fried Tortilla chips. Why not make your own chips without the oil, to dip into this lucious traditional appetizer? 

Don't be afraid of using guacamole as a topping for baked potatoes, yamsand roasted veggies, or a spread in pita or sandwiches!

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!

 

Mock Tuna Salad

This is a very satisfying alternative to a tuna salad, that can be used in sanwiches, wraps or salads.  Make more than you think, as it goes fast!

Ethiopian Red Lentils

This dish exemplifies how the plant-based diet can expand the standard Western palette with exotic ethnic tastes! 
 
Lovely pinkish red lentils don’t hold their shape when cooked and become thick and saucy, like a thick soup or stew. 

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.

Veggie Barley Stew

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

Portabella Mushroom Steaks

These big mushrooms have a meaty mouth feel to them and are very satisfying, yet light.
Serving Suggestions: 
-- Place on whole-grain burger buns and add your favorite condiments for a great burger, or on the plate for a great steak!
-- Serve with mashed potatoes, frozen vegetables and a hearty salad.

Portabella Sandwiches or Burgers

I would call this a fun-burger.  The texture of a thick, juicy mushroom is very satisfying, and works well in a bun!  Fix it up with burger toppings and you'e got an enjoyable meal!
