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)
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)
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.
