Enjoy this Cinnamon Nut Granola from Claire Swift and Sarah Biagetti with warm cinnamon milk in the colder months or with berries and yogurt in the summer. Roasting the ingredients releases many beautiful flavors and is sweetened with a beautiful combination of cinnamon and walnuts. Toasted coconut flakes and sticky apricots provide fiber reinforcement. If you don’t like an ingredient, change it to one that you do like. Swap the same amount of apricots for dates or blueberries. If you’ve run out of pumpkin seeds, add the same amount of pre-roasted almonds, walnuts, or buckwheat grains. Swap the cinnamon for vanilla extract; make this recipe your own.

Most vegan tuna salads are made from chickpeas, but this unique take uses a combination of chopped almonds and celery. This ‘Tuna’ Salad on Toast from Lenia & Dimitra is crisp, refreshing and tastes surprisingly like tuna salad, thanks to a combination of herbs, spices and umami notes. It is best enjoyed with toast, but it would also taste great on crackers.

Easy meals, like this Roasted Tomato Broccoli Red Onion Over Quinoa recipe from Elsa Brobbey, quickly become a household staple. You can use whatever veggies you like, but broccoli and red onions are a wonderful combination. The caramelized broccoli takes on nutty notes and the onions become tender and sweet. Toss them in with a lush tomato seasoning and top with the beans and some more simmer-roasted tomatoes to finish roasting. This is a simple, comforting weeknight meal for those days when you just don’t have the time.

6. Mushroom stroganoff

This Mushroom Stroganoff from Molly Patrick is a classic comfort food dish that pairs perfectly with a roaring fire and snow falling outside your window. The mushrooms make this vegan stroganoff nice and sturdy due to its meaty texture. They also have a delicious earthy flavor. After you’ve made this mushroom stroganoff once, you’ll quickly add it to your weekly dinner rotations until tank top season, at which point it can only give you a break.

7. Pinto Bean and Adzuki Burgers

Burgers are typically made with potatoes in India, called Aloo ki Tikki, and are served with chutneys, not hamburger buns. Tried bean burgers with chutneys, it turned out to be super delicious! I love home cooked beans, but you can use canned beans in a pinch. Soak beans overnight, rinse and cook with fresh water in a slow cooker on high for 5 to 8 hours (depending on the amount and type of beans) or cook in a pressure cooker in less than an hour . Soaking them makes them easier to digest. Red beans, black beans, and chickpeas are good to make these Adzuki Pinto Bean Burgers from Renu Agrawal. I used pinto beans and adzuki in this recipe.

8. Baked white bean burritos

If you go through the ingredient list, you will see a whole grain, tons of different colored veggies, beans, and spices. It is the epitome of a “complete meal”.
