Tara Haddad Shares 5 Creative Plant-Based Recipes for Your Family

Switching to a Plant-Based Diet

If you have been researching the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle, you may have been impressed by how you could improve your health and your family’s health by reducing the number of animal products in your diet.

1. Harissa-Braised Chickpeas

This recipe is garnished with whole-milk Greek yogurt and feta cheese, but vegans can leave off the animal products if they choose.

2. Cauliflower Curry

Coconut cauliflower curry makes a filling and flavorful meal for the whole family. Along with cauliflower and coconut milk, the dish includes chickpeas, spinach, and sweet potatoes for a full nutritional range and delicious taste.

3. Broccoli Salad with Warm Vinaigrette

This crisp salad combines fresh raw broccoli with dates and toasted pistachios. Ras-el-hanout provides an authentic Moroccan flavor. Cook the spices and garlic in olive oil. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in lemon juice, honey, and vinegar. If you prefer to leave out the honey, you can substitute agave nectar.

4. Creamy Kale Vegan Pasta

Instead of a dairy-based cheese sauce, this pasta is topped with a sauce made from nutritional yeast, white beans, and lemon juice. Nutritional yeast provides a cheese-like flavor and extra vitamins as well.

5. Vegan Tacos

Everyone tacos, and substituting a ground plant-based meat product like that made by Modern Meat can bring authentic flavor home to your family.

Eating Well on a Plant-Based Diet

These exciting recipes are good examples of the types of food that you can eat on a plant-based diet. Vegetarian and vegan food comes from various cuisines, and you can experience the flavors of the world without missing out on taste and creativity.
