An everyday dish from Hong Kong for those who love the taste of soy sauce. Kids will love the salty fried protein. Serve with rice or eat as a snack!

Tofu and Plantain Medley Veggie Patties

Rating: Unrated
7
This is an amazing and dazzling array of flavors packed into a patty. It literally dances in your mouth. These are better than store-bought patties or restaurant patties any day of the week. They're not heavy and I couldn't stop eating them. I think I took them to work and ate them all myself. They'd be great in a pita or with wedge-cut wraps with yogurt. They should be moist and easy to eat, they shouldn't fight back (toughness) no matter how much you cook them. They taste out-of-sight and waiting to eat them or serve them is a killer. If you want them more 'burger like' I would suggest adding more bread crumbs.

Tomato Onion Koora

My mother used to make this curry when we were about to go on vacation or just returned from vacation and didn't have many vegetables in the house. This koora works really well with rice or with pooris.

This is a tasty, protein-filled vegetarian meal. The recipe is really quite quick. Get the onions in, put the lentils on, then prep the rest of the ingredients. Once you've got the quiche in the oven, you've got 45 minutes of spare time!

Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

You might've tried boiling, mashing, and even turning cauliflower into 'rice'. For a different take on cauliflower, try these oven-roasted cauliflower steaks seasoned with a simple lemon-garlic sauce. Serve the steaks with chimichurri sauce or topped with roasted cherry tomatoes, sliced green olives and crumbled feta cheese.

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

I just whipped this up one day when I felt like a stir-fry but did not have all the ingredients called for in some of the stir-fry recipes on this site. I used certain veggies I had on hand, but any seasonal veggies may be used. It has a mild ginger flavor that can be enhanced according to taste, and is filling yet light on the tummy! Tofu may be added. Serve over a bed of steamed jasmine rice.

Falafel with Canned Chickpeas

Falafel made with canned chickpeas - just like the ones you taste in a Greek restaurant. Makes about 12 patties. Serve with hummus or tzatziki sauce.
