Vegan BBQ Bowl with Farro

This bowl brings together some southern BBQ favorites: Coleslaw, sautéed greens, BBQ- with a twist… its vegan! Instead of BBQ beef, this recipe features BBQ tofu cubes. The base of the bowl is nutty and chewy farro, and you top it with a mix of colorful BBQ classics.

Lemony Slaw

blank
I love a tangy slaw with lots of lemon and crunch from the cabbage. This one hits the spot, especially eaten along with BBQ beef sandwiches. I like to use less mayo for a lighter version, and this one uses considerably less mayo than many others. If you like your slaw less crunchy let it sit for a few hours before serving.

With the trend towards oven roasting vegetables, we’ve forgotten how good some veggies taste when they are cooked to death in a pot. I think cauliflower is one of those veggies whose sweetness only comes out when it is really cooked, just before the point of being mushy. When we make this steamed cauliflower, the kids eat this up in no time, especially when they get to dip the pieces into this salty rich sauce.

Vegetarian Deli Reuben Sandwich

blank
If you love overstuffed, warm Deli Reuben sandwiches, you have to try this vegetarian version. It has all of the flavors of the sauerkraut, with the sweet relish dressing and swiss cheese, but with a meat substitute of marinated and crisped tempeh or tofu. Make sure to load on the Kraut and dressing and eat alongside my sweet potato fries for a delicious deli dinner at home!

Mini Latke Trio

blank
These little latkes are a great Hanukah finger food for your next party. Each latke comes with its own sauce that you can put on top. Try the traditional latkes with homemade applesauce, the zucchini latkes with lemon zest cream or the sweet potatoe latkes with sriracha aioli. If you make them all, have a taste test to see which ones your guests like best!

f you are looking for a little variety in your latke eating, these sweet potato latkes are a great choice. They are made like the traditional latkes, but have a sweet taste< If you like sweet and salty, crisp up the latkes and add some extra salt at the end, when you remove them from the oil. I pair this with a sriracha aioli, for a great sweet, salty and spicy contrast.

Wedge Salad

blank
The wedge salad is back! When I was growing up, salad meant iceberg lettuce. Now that we have all of these readily available microgreens, we have forgotten how satisfying a bit of crunchy iceberg can be. If you want to mix up your dinner side salad, try this great throwback wedge salad. I like to serve mine with a simple thousand island dressing, but feel free to use a ranch or blue cheese dressing if you wish.

Vegan Garlic Ranch Dressing

blank
This is a super easy and delicious ranch dressing with a lot of kick. Serve this with my grilled spiced wings!

Salmon Burgers

blank
In my house growing up, salmon burgers (or croquettes as we called them in the 80’s) were made from cans of salmon mixed with some eggs, breadcrumbs and maybe a little something green or crunchy if we were lucky. Easy, but it was never my favorite dinner. When I came across this method for making salmon burgers in an issue of Cooking Light, I knew it would be a hit. Instead of canned salmon, this recipe uses fresh salmon that is par-baked and them mixed with fresh and punchy flavors that are a far cry from the dull croquets of my youth. Serve with Sweet and Tangy Cruciferous Slaw on the side.
