Tofu, Tempeh, and Vegan Sausage Main Dishes
Once you have your sweet potatoes ready, this delicious curried combo made with tofu and greens comes together quickly. Serve with cooked quinoa or couscous or a fresh flatbread, and a simple salad of tomatoes, bell peppers, and cucumbers. Stir some coconut yogurt and chopped cilantro into the salad to make it almost like a raita, a perfect accompaniment!

Nothing says brunch like a veggie-filled baked frittata. Silken tofu replaces the eggs traditionally used in this kind of dish. Pair this with a little fresh fruit and you have a delicious, filling brunch. Recipe is contributed by Alicia C.

The homestyle Italian classic, sausage and peppers, is updated with vegan sausage. It makes a hearty one-dish meal, good served with pasta, grains, or even soft polenta. Shown above, it’s paired with farro. Mild, pale-green Italian frying peppers that are occasionally available in supermarkets and produce markets make this more authentic, but using common bell peppers works just as well.
