This easy, one pot meal is great for a Sunday dinner. You could serve this with mashed potatoes and gravy, or just enjoy the vegetables in the broth created by slow roasting. We love having this dish when company is coming. Thick steak-like slices of the cauliflower offer up a hearty meal.
Our favorite part of fall is all the amazing fruits and vegetables that become available during the season. Filled with flavor and packed with nutrients, here are some of our favorites (and some inspiration for using them in your plant-strong kitchen).
This dip is a crowd pleaser, whether you’re enjoying the game or just want a tasty, plant-strong snack. This recipe makes a party-sized serving. If you’re not expecting a crowd, you can reduce the recipe by half.
These easy-to-make Scrimmage Scramble Rolls are great for tailgating or watching the game at home. Our testers were doing a touchdown dance after snacking on these rolls on opening day, they were such a hit!
Loaded up with greens and served over cooked brown rice, whole wheat pasta, baked potatoes or your favorite grain, this easy-to-prepare recipe is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters (that includes kids!).
Take advantage of a melting pot of delicious flavors inspired by the city of San Diego in this new favorite that is sure to be a hit, whether you’re serving them for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner!
Raw dough, baby! Who isn’t in the mood for it sometimes? Jane served these at a Plant-Strong Women, Power, Sex and Food presentation and everyone loved them, right down to the very last spoonful! You will, too. Like revenge, we find this is a dish best served cold.
This is the most basic - and versatile - of the spreads. You can find a variation of this recipe in almost any grocery store, but 95% of them are made with either olive oil or tahini/sesame paste, which pushes up the fat content (unless you purchase Engine 2 Hummus at Whole Foods Market locations across the US). Your best bet is to take three minutes and make a batch on Sunday that will last you for the week.
I’ve never met a Texan who doesn’t like migas. The word is derived from the Spanish word for “crumbs,” and the dish is traditionally made using eggs, cheese, sausage, tortillas and salsa. Part of the Tex-Mex food culture, it’s a dish that creates a very satisfying melody of tastes. Served with a side of healthy refried beans, corn tortillas, salsa and fresh fruit, with this dish mornings just don’t get much better.
Looking for a super quick and satisfying plant-strong meal in a flash? This meal is Seven-Day Rescue Challenge compliant, comes together extremely quickly and is packed with nutrients. You can’t go wrong!
The veggie burger. It has been made fun of, mocked and has been the joke of many menus. A frozen patty of “something,” and if you used just enough mustard or ketchup, maybe it would taste palatable.
But if you’ve been paying attention, veggie burgers are JUST hitting their prime. They’re being taken seriously, and with good reason - they are easy to make, super healthy and absolutely delicious!
I love this simple and fast dinner bowl! Filled with all kinds of nutritious and delicious ingredients, it has a great variety of tastes and colors, and is truly satisfying.
I always keep a few cooked sweet potatoes in the fridge so I can pop them in the microwave for three to four minutes while chopping up the other ingredients. Dinner is done in less than six minutes!
These muffins are the brainchild of my friend Bridget’s brother, Michael. An amazing cook and a Buddhist, Michael lives in a monastery outside of Pharping, Nepal, where he serves as a chef for his teacher.
