I’ve been making this dish almost every week for months. It’s a great way to pack lots of veggies in (six different types, in fact) and the black olives and warm crusty chunks of bread are heavenly. This is more of a lunch dish, but you could easily add some chickpeas or your favorite bean to turn this into dinner. The base of this Italian Veggie Sheet Bake by Luce Hosier is the sauce is rich and jam-packed with flavor, so don’t pass up this sheet pan delight.

3. Chocolate Chāi Mousse with Berries
This Chocolate Chāi Mousse with Berries by Sheil Shukla is subtly spiced with chāi flavors. The ground tea leaves give it a slightly astringent and bitter taste that contrasts well with sweet berries. This is best when fresh berries are at their summertime peak. The creaminess comes from silken tofu, available in vacuum-packed containers in the Asian or dairy aisles of many supermarkets. Not only is this dessert delicious, but it’s also nutritious! Dark chocolate and berries are rich in antioxidants. Berries have anti-cancer properties, and dark chocolate plays a role in heart health, too.

You might notice that many Roasted Red Pepper Soup recipes add carrots and potatoes but I find that the addition of those items tends to take away from the robust roasted pepper flavour. Try out this Roasted Red Pepper Soup by Zuzana Fajkusova and Nikki Lefler!
7. Baked Tofu Buddha Tray

Standard Buddha bowls will be a thing of the past once you use your sheet pan to cook the ingredients. Minimal washing up makes this Baked Tofu Buddha Tray by Luce Hosier a go-to for those evenings when you’ve had a long day and can’t be bothered to cook. With the help from the oil, the outer edges of the red cabbage will crisp up nicely, yet the inside will be soft. The red cabbage chunks will fall apart in your mouth. Roasted red cabbage is a favorite vegetable and the paprika smoked tofu chunks with a dollop of hummus are delightful. This is a perfect prep recipe to ensure you’re feeding your body plenty of goodness even on a busy day. Reprinted with permission from One-Pan Vegan by Luce Hosier. Page Street Publishing Co. 2022.
