Although a tartine is an open-faced French sandwich, this tartine recipe employs taleggio, a gooey Italian cheese. Taleggio smells stronger than it tastes and pairs well with fruit and bitter greens — in this case grapes and watercress. A quick vinaigrette combines grainy mustard with sherry vinegar and agave syrup. Don't skip the step that steeps the red onion in the vinaigrette because it gives the onion a slightly pickled flavor.

This recipe is highly versatile, so sub in whatever veggies you have on hand; mushrooms, peppers, even a green like kale would be delicious. Check it out now.
When it comes to pasta, sometimes it pays to think outside the box. This recipe isn't your grandmother's baked pasta dish. It's healthy, meatless, and not oversaturated with melted cheese.
Instead, it's a clever rendition of a pie with cooked cabbage leaves acting as the crust. Mediterranean ingredients — kalamata olives, capers, tomatoes, and fresh basil — make a filling that is high in flavor, but not in fat.

Just because a meal is meatless doesn't mean it can't be filled with flavor. This vegan recipe is jam-packed with tropical seasonings and varied textures. The onions and tempeh are slightly caramelized before being coated in cilantro, curry powder, and fresh ginger. Red pepper and mustard greens provide a necessary crunch that balances out the softness of the tempeh. The finishing touch, a sprinkling of peanuts, makes this dish subtly salty and oh-so-satisfying.

If you're looking for something fast and easy to put on the table and are tired of your typical vegetables, turn to this dish. Its exotic flavors will wake up your palate.
Traditionally, a Reuben sandwich is made with meat; however this vegetarian version removes the meat and uses tempeh instead. Similar to tofu, tempeh's made from soybeans. In this recipe the tempeh is cooked in a mixture of apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, black peppercorns, and caraway seeds. Then it's placed on a piece of bread and topped with the classic Reuben fixings: Russian dressing and sauerkraut. To check out the recipe, read more
Bring the flavors of breakfast to the dinner table with this meal. The ingredients — apples, potatoes, onions, sausage — are simple but superbly complementary in taste and texture. The recipe calls for soy sausage, but it would be equally comforting with chicken apple sausages. Use red apples for vibrant presentation and sharp white cheddar cheese for a higher level of sophistication. For extra protein, throw a fried egg on top. Look at the recipe when you read more
