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.

It must be fully admitted that this recipe combining vegan sausage, canned beans, and barbecue sauce screams “emergency dinner!” But it’s spicy, hearty, high in protein, and best of all, ready for the table in about 20 minutes. Some nights, you need a main dish like that, and this one never disappoints. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky.

Here’s a lively stir-fry with Southwestern/Mexican flavors. The tempeh absorbs a soy-lime flavor as it simmers, and is livened up with bell peppers, zucchini, cilantro, and chili peppers. Basmati or Texmati rice is a perfect accompaniment. Adapted from Stir Crazy!* by Susan Jane Cheney. Photos by Evan Atlas. more→
