If you are are intolerant to dairy or are looking for a more nutritious alternative to classic dishes such as fettuccine Alfredo, try blended veggie-based sauces (especially this cauliflower-based sauce)! Packed with an array of vitamins, fiber, the cauliflower is nothing short of a star ingredient here. The addition of olive oil and roasted garlic provide additional nutrients and, of course, those classic Italian pasta flavors. Toss the roasted purple cauliflower into the finished dish for a pop of color, but you can always use extra white cauliflower or broccoli as well!

This Broccoli, Green Bean, and Tofu Stir-fry by The Meatless Monday Family Cookbook, Jenn Sebestyen is so fresh and crisp. There are no mushy veggies here! The sauce makes just enough to coat the veggies, but not drown them. Broccoli and green beans are two of the vegetables that some kids happily eat time and time again, but you can swap in zucchini or asparagus if desired. You could serve this stir-fry over rice, but sometimes, it’s nice to step away from the grains for a moment and let the vegetables really shine on their own.
