Broccoli Spoon Salad With Warm Vinaigrette

This salad features all the best textures: crisp, fresh broccoli; chewy, sticky dates; and crunchy roasted pistachios. The ras-el-hanout, a Moroccan seasoning blend featuring aromatic and mild spices, adds a zesty depth to the bright, citrusy dressing, which permeates into the broccoli as it lingers in there. 

Not quite familiar with ras-el-hanout? Garam masala, baharat, or curry powder will do just fine. If you’re a meal prepper, this is your perfect make-ahead salad—it gets better with a bit of time.

Pantry Pasta With Vegan Cream Sauce

Many vegan cream gravies are derived from blended nuts or steamed cauliflower, but not this sauce! This one is made of beans and pasta—no soaking or blending necessary. The beans must be adequately hydrated: Once you start cooking, make sure there’s plenty of water in the pot and don’t let it evaporate.

Soy-Glazed Tofu and Mushrooms

Charred Kale With Citrus and Green Tahini

Enough with having to give complimentary massages to stubbornly tricky greens. A quick char in a hot skillet softens the rough edge of kale and balances its flavor in this recipe.

Black Pepper Tofu and Asparagus

When cooked in oil, coarsely ground peppercorns become piquant and fragrant enough to flavor the sauce; no red pepper flakes, dried chiles, or hot sauce required. Be sure not to burn the peppercorns as you cook them, or the flavor could go from spicy to bitter.

Spring Hot-and-Sour Soup

This hot-and-sour soup was inspired by this nontraditional springtime version. Miso’s thick enough body guarantees you won’t need cornstarch to thicken it. You can use tofu or thinly sliced yuba instead of egg to conjure that same silky effect.
