May 31 to June 4, 2021: Vegan Recipes to Cook This Week

We enjoy having more and more options in the kitchen that use plant-based proteins, as we’re being made more aware of the extent of their richness. Making plant-based ingredients the stars of our dishes is great for both our health, as well as that of the planet. This week, cook your meals without any animal-based products thanks to these five tasty vegan recipes.

Monday: Spaghetti with Eggplant “Meatballs” and Tomato Sauce

Starting the week off with a tasty spaghetti dish is the ultimate in comfort! Here, we’ve replaced the traditional meatballs with an eggplant version. You can then top your heaping plate with fresh basil and some vegan parmesan.

Tuesday: Brown Rice Bowl with Lentils, Carrots and Grapes

When we think of freshness, power bowls tend to come to mind. And this one makes use of one of your favourite RICARDO accessories: the rice cooker! A vegan, all-in-one recipe, just how we like them!

Wednesday: Mezze-Style Tofu with Onion Confit

Here at RICARDO, we love mezze-inspired plates, and this one is no exception! Assemble tofu, cauliflower, hummus, cucumber, an avocado, antipasto and tabouleh for a gorgeous plate that’s also quick and efficient. Perfect for a weeknight!

Thursday: Potato Ratatouille

For this hearty ratatouille, we included rustic organic veggies (eggplant, celery, zucchini, green beans, onion, green peppers, potatoes and tomatoes). The flavours are so fresh, all you need is garlic and a good olive oil to bring them all together.

Friday: Vegan Paella

End the week on a festive note with this vegan paella. Simply place it in the centre of the table and let the family serve themselves. You’ll see, they’ll likely go back for seconds. (We’re saying this based on experience!)

Vegan Dessert: Nut, Egg and Dairy-Free Fruit Cobbler

Free of nuts, eggs and dairy products, this cobbler is totally decadent! Try it with various other fruits: raspberries, strawberries, blueberries. Even the classic strawberry-rhubarb combo will yield tasty results!
