1. Lentil, Coconut and Spinach Dahl

During the cooler months we make a large batch of dahl at least twice a month. Dahl is filled with nourishing, inexpensive and readily available ingredients and has to be one of the most uncomplicated recipes to make. This Lentil, Coconut and Spinach Dahl by Claire Swift and Sarah Biagetti is a dish we crave if we’ve not eaten it for a while. Watching the whole family sit down and soak up the scent of the warming spices, dip in a chapati or scoop up a mouthful with vegan yogurt and rice makes us very satisfied cooks.

This Crispy Panko-Crusted Tofu Steak by S.C. Chuang is a fantastic vegan dinner centerpiece. I love my Panko-crusted tofu steak paired with curry sauce or garlic soy dipping sauce. The crispy, crunchy golden Panko breadcrumb with the soft, slightly bouncy texture of the firm tofu. I’d said this is a recipe that will make you fall in love with tofu!
3. Mushroom Stroganoff

This Mushroom Stroganoff by Molly Patrick is a classic comfort food dish that pairs perfectly with a cracking fire and snow falling outside your window. Mushrooms make this vegan stroganoff nice and hardy because of their meaty texture. They also have a delicious earthy taste. After you’ve made this mushroom stroganoff once, you will quickly add it to your weekly dinner rotations until tank top season, at which point, you only might give it a rest.
4. Asian Slaw with Cashews

Asian slaw is a very popular salad( usually served as a side salad) that always includes chopped raw cabbage and sometimes other shredded vegetables. The name slaw is shorthand for coleslaw. Asian slaw is similar to a regular coleslaw but the dressing is generally infused with sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, olive oil, and rice vinegar…etc. based dressing. This Asian Slaw with Cashews by S.C. Chuang is a great way to eat your colors, so fresh, crunchy, and appetizing! It’s delicious and healthy!
5. Spicy Cucumber Salad with Creamy Peanut Dressing
Cucumbers rise to the top of your salad favorites once you taste spicy cucumber salad with quick and creamy peanut dressing. This Spicy Cucumber Salad with Creamy Peanut Dressing by Denise Perrault is the bowl-cleaning healthy vegan indulgence you’ve got to experience.
6. Warm Kale Salad

This Warm Kale Salad by Zuzana Fajkusova and Nikki Lefler is the kind of meal where, once you’re finished, you’ll want to pick up the bowl and lick it clean when no one’s looking. The combination of kale, roasted sweet potatoes, quinoa and nuts create a satisfying meal that feels like a warm hug on a cold fall or winter’s day. The hardiness of kale also allows you to make this dish a couple of days in advance and enjoy it as a quick healthy meal on a busy weekday.

This Whole Wheat Carrot Cake by Namrata Edward Kshitij is totally like Gajar ka Halwa in a cake form! The earthy flavor and rich color of carrots team up beautifully with the sweet, fruity tones of apple/pineapple to make this moist, dense, and flavourful cake. This is quite a homey cake, the kind you’d bake for a little get-together at home or for a leisurely weekend dinner with family.
9. Creamy Carrot Bisque with Cauliflower, Coconut Cream and Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
This Creamy Carrot Bisque with Cauliflower, Coconut Cream and Roasted Pumpkin Seeds by Lena Novak is warming and wonderful, and is the perfect comforting meal!
10. Sesame Broccoli

Broccoli is a very interesting vegetable. It has that chunky texture and nutty flavor that is quite hard to find on other vegetables. On its own it may taste very basic but with the proper seasoning it can be really wonderful, which is exactly what this Sesame Broccoli by Raymund Macaalay achieves!
