Philly Portobello Steak Sandwich

When I lived near Philly, I got hooked on Philly Cheesesteaks. I was so excited to create these plant-based “steak” hoagies using mushrooms, peppers, and onions with all the original flavor but without any fake meat or cheese. Even the most skeptical meat eaters will fall in love with them!

Buckwheat Chia Pizza Crust With Nut Cheese

Do you love chia seeds? If you do then this simple crust will knock your socks off! Nutty, grain-free buckwheat combined with the A+ nutrient profile of chia seeds makes this crust a winner. Top it with whatever your pizza-loving heart desires. I used baby kale, beets, caramelized onion, black olives, and macadamia “cheese.”

Spaghetti and Mushroom Balls

For a nutritious plant-based meal use mushroom balls to replace meatballs. Did you know that mushrooms are low in calories, fat-free, cholesterol-free, gluten-free, and very low in sodium, yet they provide nutrients such as selenium, potassium, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin D and more?

Sweet Squash and Garbanzo Curry

Ingredients like garbanzo beans and squash make this a budget friendly dish. This curry also makes a good base if you need to clean out your fridge – I’ll often add cauliflower, broccoli, kale, bell peppers or anything else I need to use up. The flavors also get better as it sits, so I tend to enjoy this even more the day after I make it.
