Thanksgiving and many other holidays can be very meat-centric, but it doesn’t have to be! I have been making this Tofu Stuffing Casserole for 10 years now and I bring it to every Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, and Holiday party. It is always well-received and devoured by family and friends. It’s a great source of protein and has soooo much flavor!
One of my favorite Chinese dishes to eat is Mapo Tofu. I love the tongue-numbing features of the Szechuan peppercorns, the depth of chili flavors in the sauce, and the texture of the soft tofu that perfectly absorbs the sultry sauce. There are only a few restaurants I have been to that do Mapo Tofu excellently. I have been disappointed with most so I set out to make one of my favorite Chinese dishes from the Szechuan province. You can make this as mild or spicy as you prefer!
Being half Hungarian I grew up eating a lot of paprika and dill, so I find these flavors extremely comforting. Dill and paprika go so well with one of my favorite veggies, mushrooms! All that umami with herbaceous notes and spice is a dream come true! Unfortunately, a lot of Hungarian food has meat/sour cream/general dairy in it and since I don’t cook with dairy, I wanted to veganize this classic, cozy dish.
My Dill Dijon Green Beans Recipe is a holiday classic that pleases many palates. It’s relatively simple for a holiday dish, yet tastes like you’ve spent a bunch of time on it because the ingredients are super flavorful.
I love Thai food so much but I don’t live close to good Thai places. If I want to eat high quality, authentic Thai cuisine, I have to venture out to the Northeast part of the city, which I am happy to do in warmer temperatures, but in the winter, I just want to eat delicious vegan red thai curry in the comfort of my own home.
This recipe is super versatile and makes a great filling for tacos, enchiladas, tostadas, etc. It’s also super easy and perfect for a Taco Tuesday weeknight when you’re tired from work but want to celebrate Taco Tuesday.
Do you love grilling but are a vegetarian or vegan? While grilling in the Midwest tends to be meat-centric, you can go all out with delicious and satisfying plant-based options like Brussels sprouts. Just marinate the vegetables like you would need to marinate the meat and plan ahead a tiny bit so it can marinate for at least 30 minutes.
