This dish is way more delicious than we thought it would be. We actually went back for seconds (especially since it was pretty low-cal).

Pad Thai with tofu: vegetarian
I don’t know if this compares with the pad thai we get at our local Thai restaurant, but it’s pretty good. I think that they put some fish sauce in their pad thai.
Greek pasta: vegan
This dish is traditional in greek cooking without the cabbage and with ground beef, and butter instead of oil. It is a family favorite that we converted to vegan
Cauliflower soup: vegan
Top off this dish with a tbsp of parmesan cheese. Use a rounded pasta like shells or orecchiette. We used conchiglie this time.
Beet burgers: vegetarian
These came out soft and very tasty. I like the outside a bit “burnt” so i cooked them a little longer. You can add nuts in the food processor if you want some extra protein and body.
Red curry: vegan
You can basically use any green vegetables in place of the kale mix, fresh or frozen. We had some left over pasta that we added after. I also think that half an avocado would be really good to add.
String bean and apple sauté: vegan/vegetarian
The combination of the honey, lemon and apple give this dish a lot of flavor. Frozen string beans can be used as a substitute, but you would need to cook it long enough so the moisture evaporates and then the string beans can brown.
Lentil broccoli slaw: vegan
We really love the dressing for this salad, with the mint and parsley flavors. I had a little tomato left over from the day before and added that. You can substitute toasted pin nuts or almonds for the cashews.
Portobello mushroom sandwich: vegan
We used ciabata rolls for this recipe which are high in calories. You can use any kind of roll or hamburger bun.
Soba noodle salad: vegan
This meal is quick and easy. I got this recipe from Forks over Knives Summer 2020. I think the dressing needed some garlic, I might add that next time. Also top with sesame seeds for some crunch, one tbsp is 30 calories.
