I get asked all of the time, “So, what do you eat?” I totally get it. Before we started cooking vegan, I had no idea how people went without eating meat. I just assumed that vegans made the same meals but with soy-meat-replacements… That didn’t really sound that appealing. Honestly, it still doesn’t. (Although, there are some very yummy meat-replacements, not gonna lie.)
There are some big football games coming-up and if you find yourself hosting, you’re going to want to have something nice and tasty right? So, what does an herbivore do when we are expecting Meat Eater company? How can you make sure these people will not leave hungry??
Fear not! Here are some tested recipes that are sure to delight the bellies of even the most hard core carnivore!
1. Black Bean & Spinach Enchiladas– Now, this recipe isn’t vegan but it’s very easy to make it
so. Simply replace the shredded cheese that goes in the filling with Tofutti “Better Than Cream Cheese” (which totally lives up to it’s name btw) and the shredded cheese topping with Daiya shredded Pepper Jack cheese. I also make a box of spanish rice and include that with the filling. These enchiladas are our number one favorite recipe. Serve with chips and guac and your guests will be very full!
2. Rosemary Sweet Potato & Quinoa Burgers– Just trust me on this one, these are AMAZING! One of my friends likes to make them as sliders and she said they were really fun and still delicious. Sliders would be an awesome choice if you were feeding friends for a game. Don’t skip the searing the buns step and make sure you have avocado to top them with. Follow this recipe to the “t” and you won’t regret it. Serve with a side of fries and enjoy!
3. Vegan Tortilla Soup– It’s hard to go wrong with a good hearty soup. This one is bursting
with flavor and very filling. Again, make sure to take her advice on the garnishes, they really makes the dish complete!
Well, I hope this is a good starting place for you! I’ll post some more later as my list gets longer. Please add any recipes you might know of in the comments section so the other readers can benefit! Thanks!
