Our Best Vegan Dishes

by The Culinistas

The days of eating less meat are here — and we are ready. 

We’ve already talked about the fact that tofu is the sleeper protein we can’t get enough of, especially for those exploring vegan dishes. Whether you’re inspired to ditch the dairy, ditch the meat, or ditch both, vegan dishes have come a long way.

In fact, some of our favorite Culinista recipes of all time are vegan. Here are a few to get you started:

Tahini Ranch Spring Salad

A romaine & snap pea salad with sesame & chives.

Oyster Mushroom Tinga

Vegan variation of traditional tinga; slowly roasted mushrooms in a concentrated mushroom broth.

Cauliflower Korma

Cauliflower braised in an aromatic sauce, thickened with cashews.

Black Bean Portobello Patties

Well-spiced broccoli, mushroom, black bean & date patties with lime juice served with a broccoli-lime sauce.

Roasted Red Pepper Pasta
