plant based dinner ideas (6) this butternut squash and lentil pot pie is one of my all time favorite go-to fall meals. perfectly proportioned and full of fall flavors, it just hits the spot on these cool sweater evenings. i make it vegan by using earth balance butter and tofutti cream cheese. the butternut squash combined with lentils and rosemary just seem to warm you up from the inside out. it’s so delicious!

plant based dinner ideas (7) glazed lentil walnut apple loaf. meat lovers rejoice! this veganized version of meatloaf won’t leave you missing anything, accept leftovers. i’ve probably made it a dozen times and it’s always a huge hit. it’s also the perfect comfort food for this time of year, as it bursts with all the flavors of fall. i usually serve it with whatever sides i have on hand, which usually consists of mashed potatoes, roasted carrots and some kind of sauteed green.

plant based dinner ideas (4) THIS recipe is amazing. vegetables wellington redux is so scrumptious and rich that i usually only make for special occasions, and every time it’s an ultimate treat. i make it vegan by omitting the goat cheese (you’ll never miss it!) and skipping the egg wash on the outside, and it still turns out beautifully browned and crusty every time. i usually also make my own pesto (since it can be difficult to find one with no cheese) by blending fresh basil, pine nuts, garlic and olive oil together. and because i find that it’s perfect on it’s own, i’ve also never served it with tomato sauce. trust me, make this and you won’t regret it!

plant based dinner ideas (3) another one of my favorite go-to soup recipes is this roasted tomato and rosemary soup with kale and potatoes. it’s easy to throw together and especially hardy and warming on cool autumn nights. i most often serve it with homemade bread and slathered with (vegan) butter. yum!

next on my list of favorite recipes from around the web is this tomato cobbler from honey and jam. it’s so delicious! we’ve been getting an abundance of tomatoes from our local csa farm, so i’ve made this cobbler several times. i simply make it vegan by using my favorite 2-ingredient biscuit recipe, and it turns out amazingly delicious every time. i like to serve it with a big harvest salad and call it a day.

summery fresh is how i would sum up this week’s meals. we’ve really been enjoying cooking and eating out of our weekly csa box, and have grilled out a few times as well. in season here are carrots, zucchini, squash, onions, red potatoes, basil, cabbage, bell peppers and watermelon. yum!

monday: vegan mac & cheese served with sauteed kale and baked tofu
tuesday: vegan WOW burger served with roasted brussel sprouts and leftover mac & cheese.
wednesday: roasted carrots, baked potatoes and sauteed kale + a salad topped with roasted beets
thursday: vegan polenta pizza*
friday: black bean burritos (i subbed zucchini for the butternut squash!)

*i love making polenta pizza! simply make some polenta and spread it out in a circle to use as your crust on a lightly greased baking sheet (or pizza pan). let it sit until it’s firmed up and cooled down. top with fresh tomatoes, sauteed squash & onions, vegan cheese (i used follow your heart’s vegan gourmet mozzarella) and fresh basil. bake until cheese is melted and slightly browned. enjoy!
