I know what you’re thinking- walnut "meat" sounds kinda crazy. Don’t be fooled though! This recipe is perfect for making beef-less tacos. After soaking your walnuts for 2-4 hrs in warm water, the walnuts soften to create a perfect meat-like texture. Throw them in a food processor with plenty of taco seasonings, pulse for a few seconds, and viola! You’ve got the perfect filling for your Taco Tuesday dinner!
This falafel burger is such a fun twist on your staple veggie burger. These burgers are loaded with flavor. They’re packed with fresh herbs and spices like parsley, cilantro, cumin and coriander! I served these fun burgers on a pink beet bun with lettuce, tomato, onion and a tahini-based dressing.
These sesame ginger dumplings are the definition of comfort food. These dumplings get their soft centers from shredded carrots, shiitake mushrooms, and tofu. In this recipe, I prefer to use Nasoya’s Sesame Ginger TofuBaked. I’ve found that I get a much more consistent texture than when I press and bake my own tofu (something I’ve been working on perfecting).
This hearty fall salad combines some of my favorite cool-weather flavors. The sweet potatoes are tossed in chili powder and cinnamon giving this salad a warm kick while the pear adds a cool, crisp crunch. It has so much flavor that it is paired best with a light balsamic or vinaigrette dressing.
I’m pretty sure that this recipe makes me an official southerner. Chicken and waffles is such a classic dish here in North Carolina. This dish will impress vegans and meat eaters alike. Serve it to guests for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! This recipe makes 4 crispy "chik'n" seitan cutlets and 4 cornbread waffles!
