This breakfast is a great way to get a big dose of iron in the morning! This is one of my favorite quick breakfasts and packs a heavy punch of protein to get the day started right.

Warm Farro Salad with Roasted Root Vegetables

Warm Farro Salad with Roasted Root Vegetables

This recipe is satisfying meal all on its own, or a hearty side. Either way, it is a crave-worthy dish that you can still feel good about.

Fancy Pants Spaghetti Squash

Fancy Pants Spaghetti Squash

This elegant and delicious squash recipe is meant to be a side dish, but I could eat it as my meal any day of the week. It’s a great side to serve when company is coming over since you can prep the squash the night before (or even two nights before) and sauté just before serving. If you plan to bake and sauté the squash all at once, I suggest using the baking time to prep all your other ingredients.

The tofu bacon portion of this recipe is great for breakfast, but combined with a few ingredients it also makes a delicious sandwich.

Sweet 'n' Sriracha Brussels Sprouts

It seems like the list of reasons to eat brussels sprouts grows longer every day. At the top of the list for me is that they are delicious! This five-ingredient side dish is so easy that it may soon become a staple at your dinner table. The only trick is to eat them as soon as they’re ready, which has never been a problem in my house!

Butternut Squash Pizza

If you’re looking for a hearty dish that will impress even those who are pessimistic about plant-based foods, try this butternut squash pizza. Trust me when I say that no one will miss the dairy! If you know you’ll be short on time, make the sauce and toppings the day before, and the day-of steps will only take about 20 minutes!

Lentil and Mushroom Shepherd's Pie

Lentil and Mushroom Shepherd's Pie

Shepherd’s pie is simply just three components - a meaty filling, gravy, and creamy mashed potatoes. For this version, we’ll use a lentil and mushroom mixture to get a similar meaty texture.

Red Velvet Superfood Smoothie

Red Velvet Superfood Smoothie

This flavorful treat tastes like a frozen red velvet cupcake (sort of) but without the refined flour, eggs, sugar, and red dye. For all you chocoholics who want to channel your addiction in a healthy way, this extra thick & creamy sweet smoothie is the perfect dessert or afternoon pick-me-up.

Grilled Eggplant With Mint

Grilled Eggplant With Mint

We grill whole large globe eggplants over hot coals (and sometimes directly on a bed of medium-hot coals) until they collapse completely, then scrape the soft flesh out of its leathery skin to make baba ghanoush or other seasoned spreads. But we grill a smaller, narrower globe or long, thin Japanese eggplant when we want to eat them skin and all.

Roast Butternut Squash and Spinach Salad

Roast Butternut Squash and Spinach Salad

Perhaps the best salad of all time. Good enough to eat by the bucketload on its own, with bread, or perfect as one of the sides at a dinner party.
