8. Oyster Mushroom Scallops With Nasturtium Pesto
Sea scallops are a tender treat that many enjoy, but if you’re following a plant based diet you have to turn to other means to enjoy ocean foods. Enter seaweed. Kombu is a form of kelp that is rich in nutrients and packed with umami flavors. It makes a great base for soup stock and lends a rich and complex flavor. In Rachel Carr‘s Oyster Mushroom Scallops With Nasturtium Pesto, it’s an interesting addition to pesto and give more of an oceany flavor to the mushroom “scallops.” Also served with this unusual sauce are nasturtium leaves and flowers. This common edible flower has a slightly spicy flavor that marries well with the creamy nuts and complex kombu!
9. Herb-Infused White Sesame Curry With Red Potatoes and Mushrooms

Serve this curry warm with steamed rice and a side of naan.

Have you ever had risotto? It’s so creamy and smooth and decadent you’d swear it was covered in butter or cheese (and it often is!) – but did you know it’s really easy to make yourself and doesn’t need any dairy at all? True! Jessica Verma‘s Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto recipe doesn’t even have much fat in it, aside from any you use to sauté the onions. All it really takes is a little bit of patience to stir the rice every once in a while, but it’s not especially difficult and the whole thing is done in maybe 30-45 minutes.
11. Mushroom and Garlic Tacos

Bibimbap (meaning “mixed rice”) is basically a dish of steamed rice, served with sautéed seasonal vegetables and meat and served with an addictive gochujang chili sauce. It’s one of the easiest Korean dishes to make completely plant-based because the meat isn’t mandatory!
