I’m forever trying to reduce the number of pans, bowls, spoons, and spatulas I need to scrub at the end of the day, so one-pan meals are my jam. It’s all about building layers of flavor, adding ingredients strategically so everything is done cooking at the same time. Turns out Singapore noodles, tinged with golden curry powder and tangled up with any assortment of vegetables, lend themselves perfectly to the format. Try out these Simple Singapore Noodles by Hannah Kaminsky!
2. Cauliflower Tikka Masala

This Cauliflower Tikka Masala by Priya Lakshminarayan is a vegan take on the always popular chicken tikka masala and uses cauliflower instead of chicken. Using red, yellow, or orange bell pepper rather than green gives the dish the desired color. Serve this lovely recipe with flatbread or rice to soak up the deliciously rich and creamy sauce.

This Dirty Cauliflower Rice by Hannah Kaminsky is a fully plant-based take on a Creole classic. The only meat you’ll find in this modern revamp is in the form of nutmeat. Minced walnuts add a hearty dose of protein and richness, complementing a bold palate of spices. Cauliflower stands in for rice, further lightening the dish. Filled with aromatics and herbs like onion, pepper, celery, garlic, chili powder, paprika, and thyme, this savory, flavor-filled dish makes a great healthy side for stewed black beans or grilled vegan sausage.
