Honor Fathers with Vegan Cuisine

Posted on June 09, 2014 by Nina Casalena, The VRG Blog Editor

Celebrate the father’s in your life this Father’s Day by serving vegan dishes! Here are two recipes to get you started.

Hearty Macaroni Dinner (from Simply Vegan)
Serves 4

2 cups elbow macaroni
4 cups water
1 onion, chopped
2 Tablespoons oil
3 cups no salt added tomato juice
4 teaspoons chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste
10 ounces frozen corn
19-ounce can kidney beans, drained (or 2 cups cooked kidney beans)

Cook pasta in water until tender. Drain.

Sauté onion in oil in a large pot. Add remaining ingredients, as well as cooked pasta. Simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve hot.

Tofu Burgers (from Meatless Meals for Working People)
Serves 4

2 cups firm tofu, crumbled
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 cup wheat germ
2 teaspoons soy sauce or tamari
1 teaspoon pepper
½ cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1 Tablespoon oil
½ cup water or vegetable broth
2 teaspoons oil for frying

Blend or mash tofu well and add remaining ingredients (except oil for frying). The easiest way to do this is in a food processor, but you can do it by hand. Mix well.

Form patties and fry in oil in a large frying pan on both sides until brown (approximately 10 minutes).

Serve warm on whole grain bread with lettuce and sliced tomato.
