Weekly Vegan Dinner Plan: Late Fall

Sweet and sour stir-fried vegetables with tempeh and pineapple

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is around the corner, which means that Christmas and Hanukkah aren’t far behind. In terms of food, the holiday season brings a mixed blessing — the gratitude of abundance, paired with the fear of gaining too much weight at this time of year! So let’s fill this pre-holiday season week with lighter dishes from around the world before the craving for more traditional holiday fare kicks in. Lets start with Sweet-and-Sour Stir-Fried Vegetables with Seitan or Tempeh. This is especially good served over bean-thread noodles or Asian brown rice vermicelli, but soba or udon work well, too. Long-grain brown rice and brown basmati rice are good choices as well.

Gado-gado recipe

Gado-Gado Inspired Salad is an Indonesian composed platter featuring raw and cooked vegetables, arranged in separate mounds and served with a rich peanut-coconut dressing. With tempeh (or sometimes tofu) as the usual protein on the platter, this is meant to be a one-dish meal. Though entirely optional, plain cooked rice is often served with this dish; an aromatic brown Basmati is very nice.

Hungarian Noodles with Cabbage and Poppy Seeds

The preparation of Hungarian-Style Noodles with Cabbage and Poppy Seeds, tasty Slavic-inspired dish, can be greatly simplified by using pre-shredded coleslaw cabbage, but for flavor, I prefer a fresh green cabbage. For a complete, easy meal, serve with a simple bean dish and a salad of mixed greens, tomatoes, peppers, and carrots.

Sweet potato dal

Lindsay Nixon of Happy Herbivore fame calls her Indian-inspired Sweet Potato Dal “Dal-icious”! It’s so flavorful, she says, you’ll want seconds. and thirds, so you may want to double or triple this recipe. All you need to complete the meal is a flatbread and simple salad.

Thai-Style Steamed Green Vegetables with Coconut-Peanut Sauce recipe

Thai-Style Green Vegetables with Coconut-Peanut Sauce offers a nice change of pace from the usual stir-fries. What makes this dish great is a rich and delectable peanut sauce. Served over hot cooked rice; add a platter of cherry tomatoes and carrot sticks to complete the meal.
