Tempeh "Meatballs" with Roasted Romanesco
Envisioning a long candlelit dinner complete with a “spaghetti kiss” this Valentine’s Day but want to keep your meal meatless? These tempeh “meatballs” are the perfect dish for your romantic evening.
Greek Sandwich with Feta Vinaigrette
Serve a sandwich piled high with the fresh flavors of Greece. The vinaigrette adds bright flavor to the stacker and is also tasty on salad greens.
Quinoa Veggie Burger
This quinoa veggie burger recipe is a meat-lover’s burger: toasted pecans, mushrooms, Cheddar cheese, fresh herbs and red quinoa pack this vegetarian burger full of delicious flavor. Red quinoa, which you can generally find in stores where white quinoa is sold, gives the quinoa veggie burgers the perfect color. If you can only find white quinoa, that’s fine too. These quinoa veggie burger patties hold together well for freezing, making for a quick and easy meal. Defrost overnight in the refrigerator before cooking. Serve with your favorite burger garnishes. 
Spaghetti Genovese
Traditionally, this Italian pasta recipe combines pasta and pesto with potatoes and green beans. In our recipe for Spaghetti Genovese we give pesto a nutritional boost by adding spinach and toss it all together with fiber-rich whole-wheat pasta for a warm, comforting weeknight meal. Serve with escarole and radicchio salad.
