5 Super Satisfying Plant-Based Meals
As more of us eat vegetarian at least some of the time, plant-based recipes are taking center stage. Trendy purple potatoes, Halloumi cheese, wakame, and more shine in these five satisfying meatless dishes.
Vegan Mexican Quinoa Bowls with Chile-Cilantro Sauce
Hemp milk is chock-full of healthy fats and is gaining popularity as a cow’s milk alternative. Its earthy taste blends delightfully with green chiles and fresh cilantro.
Creamy Thai Mushroom Soup
Wakame is a type of seaweed. If you’ve ever ordered miso soup, you’ve likely already enjoyed it. It adds mild yet distinct flavor, so don’t skip it. We used sun-dried wakame and plumped it in warm water. You could also use fresh, but avoid salt-preserved wakame to keep sodium in check.
Rainbow Potato Pancakes with Harissa and Eggs
To make these colorful cakes, use small purple Peruvian fingerlings or purple sweet potatoes. Their vivid hue comes from anthocyanin, an antioxidant-rich pigment that protects against chronic diseases.
World’s Best (Now Vegetarian!) Lasagna
The most popular lasagna recipe on Allrecipes.com is now meatless! We used Beyond Meat Hot Italian Plant-Based Sausage and BOCA Original Veggie Crumbles. We guarantee that meat-eaters won’t be able to tell the difference!
Sweet Potato, Spinach, and Halloumi Curry
Halloumi is a salty, semifirm Greek cheese typically made from goat’s or sheep’s milk. Its sturdy texture makes it excellent for searing, frying, and grilling, and it is a satisfying alternative to meat.
