Endlessly versatile soups, stews, and chili are an essential part of the vegetarian repertoire. Packed with vegetables, and often filled with protein-rich beans, these meatless recipes can be great starters or a complete meal in a bowl.
This meal comes together especially easily when using extra roasted vegetables reserved from Cauliflower Steaks with Roasted Pepper and Tomato Salad. If you haven't made that recipe, simply roast 1 cup of cauliflower florettes and 1 1/2 pints of grape or cherry tomatoes.
Serve this stew over brown rice or with whole-grain bread. You can also replace the pumpkin with squash or young carrots. The tofu, which is added to the stew in the last 5 to 10 minutes, absorbs the spicy flavors of the broth.
This collection of satisfying vegan main dishes includes stir-fries, curries, stews, chili, salads, burgers, and even pizza. These recipes eliminate meat, eggs, dairy, and all other animal products while embracing the goodness of fresh vegetables, whole grains, tofu, beans, nuts, and spices.
Thai curry paste, not to be confused with curry powder, is a blend of chile peppers, garlic, black pepper, coriander, and other ingredients. It comes in green and red varieties, which you'll find in the international aisle -- for this recipe, choose green.
