We’re all told to add more produce and plant-based proteins into our diets. It can be a fun challenge to be creative with produce and grains being the star of the plate. Ditch the everyday, boring salad, and try these healthy plant-based recipes for your next meal!
The great thing about tofu is that it can be, well, whatever you want. Sauté it in a pan along with red and yellow peppers, douse it in P.F. Chang’s® Home Menu kung pao sauce, throw garlic, ginger, crisp celery, green onions, and peanuts into the mix, and you’re on your way to a bold weeknight dinner that’s ready in 30 minutes or less.
Anyone who’s gone plant-based know the beauty of a blender.

Goodness from the ground up. Hearty sautéed sweet potatoes form a healthy foundation and serve as the perfect base to top with Rosarita® premium black beans.

Vegan mac and cheese?? Yes, you read that right, and you just have to taste it to believe it! This isn’t any ol’ mac and cheese though.
