Vegan Roasted Red Pepper, Tomato, & Quinoa Soup by @shortgirltallorder 🧡 . (Makes 6 servings) . Roasted Red Peppers & Tomatoes 8 cups chopped tomatoes *I like using a mix of 6 cups roma tomatoes cut into quarters and 2 cups cherry tomatoes left whole 2 red peppers *cut into slices 1/2 lemon *for juice 2 Tbsp avocado oil 1 tsp Italian seasoning *mix of basil, oregano, marjoram 1 tsp garlic powder salt & peper to taste Soup ingredients 1/2 cup dried quinoa 2 cups veggie broth 1 14 oz can coconut milk 1 tsp Italian seasoning chives *optional as topping fresh basil *optional as topping toasted pine nuts *optional as topping INSTRUCTIONS Preheat your oven to 400F/200C. First, roast the vegetables. Take the chopped tomatoes and sliced red peppers and add them to a greased baking tray. Toss with the oil and spices until evenly coated. Then, add 1/2 lemon to the baking tray so that it is face up. Bake the vegetables for 35-40 minutes until cooked and beginning to caramelize. Remove from the oven and let cool. While the vegetables are cooling, make your quinoa by adding 1/2 cup quinoa and 1 cup of your vegetable broth to a large pot and cooking for about 15 minutes, stirring as needed. Once the quinoa is cooked and the vegetables are slightly cooled, add them to your blender along with the canned coconut milk and the juice from the roasted lemon. Blend for 3-5 minutes until completely mixed and the quinoa is broken down. Then, add the mixture to a large pot and stir in the additional 1 cup of vegetable broth. Bring the soup to a boil, stir, and then turn down the heat. Simmer the soup for an additional 10 minutes to thicken. Remove from stove and enjoy! For extra tasty soup, I recommend adding chopped chives, fresh basil, and toasted pine nuts to the top of your soup. RECIPE NOTES *Soup can be refrigerated and is best enjoyed within 3-5 days. If freezing, the soup will keep up to 2 months* [Recipe as posted on shortgirltallorder.com, courtesy of @shortgirltallorder]

Vegan Grilled Cheese by @biancazapatka 🧡 . Ingredients Spinach Cream 1 tsp olive oil for frying 2 cloves garlic minced 3 cups fresh spinach roughly chopped, or sub frozen pinch of salt more to taste 2 tbsp vegan cream cheese  Grilled Cheese Sandwich 4 slices bread of your choice 1 tbsp vegan butter or oil 1 cup vegan cheddar cheese shredded Instructions Spinach Cream Heat a teaspoon of olive oil in a skillet. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Then add the spinach and a pinch of salt, and sauté for a further minute until just wilted. Transfer to a bowl, drain off any excess liquid, then stir in the vegan cream cheese and another pinch of salt to taste.  Grilled Cheese Sandwich Clean the same skillet (or use another large pan) and heat to medium-high heat. Spread vegan butter (or oil) on one side of each of the bread slices. Once, the pan is hot, add 2 slices of bread, buttered side down. On each slice, spread some shredded cheese, the spinach cream filling, some more cheese (1/2 cup cheese per sandwich), and top with the other slices of bread, buttered side up. Use a spatula to gently press down on the grilled cheese sandwich during frying. When the bottom bread is browned, flip the sandwich and cook until the other side is toasted too and the cheese is melted, about 2-4 minutes each side. Serve warm and enjoy!

Ginger cashew tofu by @plantbasedartist 🧡 . Ingredients  about 4 servings  For tofu: 14oz extra firm tofu, drained 1 tablespoon neutral oil such as grapeseed or sunflower 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce 1 tablespoon cornstarch  For sauce: 3/4 cup vegetable broth (or water) 2 tablespoons vegetarian mushroom oyster sauce* 2 tablespoons raw sugar or maple syrup 1 1/2 tablespoons sambal oelek (chili paste) 1 1/2 tablespoons finely minced ginger, reduce amount for a less pungent ginger flavor 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce 1 tablespoon rice vinegar 1 tablespoon cornstarch  For stir fry: 1-2 teaspoons neutral oil such as grapeseed or sunflower 1 large red bell pepper, diced (~1inch pieces, about 1 cup) 1/2 cup roasted cashews  Rice for serving if desired –  Method  Begin by preheating oven to 400F. Drain the tofu well and dry the block of tofu well using a clean kitchen towel. I highly recommend using a tofu press to drain as much water from the tofu as possible. Once the tofu has been drained, cut into desired shapes. I cut mine into triangles, but ~1inch cubes would work as well. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, soy sauce, and cornstarch well until smooth. Toss the tofu with the sauce and lay the tofu out onto a parchment lined baking tray. Bake the tofu for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, flip each piece of tofu over, then bake again for an additional 10-20 minutes until browned.  While the tofu is baking, prepare the sauce by whisking together all of the ingredients in a small saucepan. Heat the sauce at medium heat until just thickened, whisking or stirring frequently. Set aside.  In a wok or large skillet/saute pan, heat oil at medium heat and add the bell pepper. Cook until softened and browned. Add the sauce, reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 1 minute. Add additional water or vegetable broth if the sauce becomes too thick. Add the tofu and cashews and stir well to combine. Serve immediately with rice for a complete meal or on its own.

Purple Sweet Potato Pizza by @plantbasedrd for the #bestofveganpizza contest 💜 . To make this pie, mix equal parts mashed steamed purple sweet potato (works with other sweet potatoes as well) and whole wheat pastry flour (you can use oat flour to make this gluten free). I measured 1 cup flour and 1 cup finely mashed sweet potato. Then add some flavor, add 1/4 tsp adobo seasoning, 1/2 tsp oregano, and a pinch of salt. . Using hands, kneed mixture into a dough ball (I didn’t have to use water for the dough as it was perfectly unsticky, but adjust dough with additional water and flour as needed until your dough turns out). Take dough and split in half. On floured parchment paper, roll out with a rolling pin to your desired crust thickness. Once flattened, adjust the edges to make it as round as possible. . Place crust into oven preheated at 400F and allow to cook for 13-15 minutes. Remove crust from oven and allow to slightly cool, then add on desired toppings. I went with marinara sauce as the base and topped with roasted broccoli and cauliflower,  thinly sliced red onion, handful of roasted corn, handful of arugula, 1/3 cup crumbled crispy seasoned tempeh (recipe below). Over top of this I sprinkled about 2 tbsp of vegan cheese. Placed this whole pie back in the oven and bake for another 5-8 minutes to help cook the veggies and melt the cheese. . For seasoned tempeh, crumble 1 block of tempeh into a pan and add 1/4 cup of veggie broth, 1/4 tsp fennel seeds, 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp adobo, 2 tsp soy sauce and 2 tsp maple syrup. Cook until liquid cooks off and tempeh starts to slightly dry and brown. #bestofvegan

It does not need to be finely ground; some whole seeds leftover are fine. Add kombu dashi, garlic, ginger, and carrots to a large pot and bring to a boil. Cook for a minute, then add cabbage and continue to cook a few more minutes. Once carrots are slightly tender, lower to medium heat and add in zucchini. Mix in ground sesame seeds, tahini, gochujang, and mirin. Simmer until zucchini are tender, then add tofu and about half the green onions and heat for another minute. Turn off the heat, and once the soup has stopped boiling mix in the miso until evenly dispersed. Taste and add more miso if needed, or chili flakes if not spicy enough. Prepare ramen noodles according to package instructions. Place cooked noodles in a large bowl and pour in soup. Top with corn and remaining green onions. Store leftovers in air-tight containers in the fridge, storing the noodles and soup separately. #bestofvegan
