Vegan Bean Taco Filling

Breaded, Fried, Softly Spiced Tofu
This tofu recipe is completely gorgeous. A former roommate introduced me to some basics with tofu, and over the past few years, I've settled on this ratio of spices and other breading ingredients. The crust on the tofu sticks is tasty and the texture is really wonderful. Serve with a relish or a dip of some sort (I love this with plain yogurt mixed with eggplant brinjal). I usually make this with a cumin-scented rice dish and a garlicky broccoli side.
Spicy Tahini Sauce with Kale, Sea Vegetables, and Soba Noodles
This vegan recipe was invented on a day that I wanted to use up the arame seaweed and tahini. My adventurous combination turned out completely delicious. Spicy, with a satisfying nutty flavor. Makes two large or four small servings.

Seitan Makhani (Vegan-Style Indian Butter Chicken)
Chicken Makhani is a dish I always loved before becoming vegan. It is my absolute favorite Indian dish, so I knew I had to try to make it so I could curb my cravings. The sauce tastes amazing with naan and white rice. The seitan is an excellent substitute for meat in many dishes. You can buy store-bought seitan, which can be expensive, or you can make your own.
This is a wonderful meatless version of traditional fajitas! It can be prepared in advance, or right away.
Air Fryer Baked Potatoes
Beautifully crusty on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside, just like a great baked potato should be! Serve them with your favorite topping, like sour cream, butter, or chives.
Plant-Based Tomato Tart
A vegan version of heirloom tomato pie. It uses cashews and chickpeas as a fluffy filling, then it's topped with fresh summer tomatoes and jalapenos for a kick. Use an olive oil brisee for a crisp, light, and healthy touch.
Briam (Greek Baked Zucchini and Potatoes)
Briam is a traditional Greek roasted vegetable dish with potatoes, zucchini, tomatoes, and red onions with lots of olive oil. It is a typical example of Greek cuisine where a few simple ingredients are turned into an utterly delicious dish with little effort. It can be served as a main course. With olive oil as the only source of fat it is a quintessential example of the Mediterranean diet, and it is vegan to boot. If preferred, serve with a hearty chunk of feta on the side.
