Fall has arrived! Personally, I think that there is no better vegan comfort food than stew. This vegan stew recipe is reminiscent of traditional beef stew with a thick, rich sauce and plenty of tender vegetables. It’s hearty and healthy and makes getting a tasty vegan dinner on the table easy!

Slow Food Sunday Vegan Meals
This category of vegan meals is for those nights (or weekend days) when you want to be in the kitchen, learning more and building up a savory vegan dish. Many of these vegan dishes can be food prepped for weeknight meals as well.
I am galette obsessed. Peach, plum, mushroom…this strawberry rhubarb galette. Not familiar with galettes? All you really need to know is how easy they are to make. This galette recipe features a homemade vegan pie crust, but you can make things even easier by using a store-bought crust for “practice.” The filling for this strawberry rhubarb galette is silly easy. I made it with fresh strawberries and rhubarb, sugar, lemon juice and chia seeds.
This roasted tomato compote with fresh basil recipe is pure gold. The combination of slow roasted fresh tomatoes in plenty of olive oil with a handful of fresh basil will make your taste buds sing. I like to spread it on home olive sourdough or add it as a topping to crispy vegan polenta cakes.
Did you think you’d have to give up sushi to go vegan? You were right! I promise you won’t miss it though. Not with this vegan sushi tuna tower recipe. This dish is every bit as satisfying as the original, using tomatoes in place of the tuna. Sushi rice, avocado, sesame seeds and crushed pistachios make this homemade vegan sushi tuna tower better than any rolls you’d find at your local sushi joint.
Looking for the ultimate in vegan comfort food? This pappardelle pasta with an easy kale and white bean ragù recipe will make even the coldest nights warm and cozy. Bring this Italian recipe to your table in a vegan friendly way by adding a healthy cashew cream sauce made with nutritional yeast and fresh lemon juice.
If you haven’t yet tried bibimbap, you’re missing out! Bibimbap, a Korean dish, means mixed ingredients (“bibim”) and rice (“bap”). Here, I’ve created a vegan version using a Korean-marinated tofu crumble and crispy rice. These ingredients are complemented by quick-pickled vegetables, roasted sweet potatoes and sautéed shiitake mushrooms. This vegan dish offers up a ton of flavor. It’s sweet, salty, spicy and a bit tangy with a ton of umami! It’s also a great dish to serve a crowd, offering up great aesthetics and the flexibility for each diner to build their own bowl.
Wondering what to do with all those fresh tomatoes this summer? Have you considered tomato pie? And no, I don’t mean the kind that looks like a cheese-less pizza. I mean an actual tomato pie, as in southern tomato pie. This easy vegan tomato pie recipe is every bit as savory as its traditional counterpart, using cashew cream sauce in place of cheese and a flaky, vegan-buttery crust. Fresh tomatoes never had it so good!
