You’ll definitely want to try these out!

Tofu with Peanut Sauce


I usually don’t even attempt to cook Chinese food at home because it never seems to turn out right. This recipe works and is so simple! Time saver tip: If you’re short on time or don’t want to put the oven on, you can just fry your tofu until it’s done like you like it and then follow the recipe! And, if you don’t have sambal oelek, not to worry siracha sauce will work as well.

Vegan Black Bean Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

This is a great combination of flavors.  Time saver tip: I cook the sweet potatoes in the microwave and use store bought guacamole and salsa for those busy weeknights when I’m starving and can’t wait to eat!


Grilled Zucchini Hummus Wrap

These are so delicious! Definitely not your ordinary wrap! A regular skillet will work for these if you don’t want to grill the vegetables. Of course if you have one of these they work perfectly! You get the cool blackened grill marks & everything all without firing up the grill!

Vegan Jambalaya

Time saver tip: You can easily use an equal amount of frozen peppers and onions stir fry mix if you don’t have fresh on hand and don’t feel like doing the extra chopping. This recipe is pretty forgiving, so the amounts of peppers and onions don’t need to be exact!

Siracha & Lime Roasted Cauliflower Tostadas

I love roasted cauliflower anyway, but the flavor combination in the marinade for this recipe is AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS! Time saver tip: I use bagged shredded cabbage like you would for coleslaw and jarred mango salsa which makes this recipe even easier!

Sheet Pan Gnocchi & Vegetables

Gnocchi is almost sinfully good anyway! When you roast it with the veggies and spices…OMG! Too marvelous!

Vegan Enchiladas with Tofu & Black Beans

Yep, these enchiladas work even without any cheese! Time saver tip: Here again you can sub in frozen peppers and onions for the bell pepper and onion. Just use approximately the same amount and you’ll be golden!

These 7 Quick & Easy Weeknight Dinner Recipes are so flavorful and delicious even the meat eaters in your family won’t care that they’re vegetarian!
