Smoky Cauliflower Wing Sub with Corn Salsa and Ranch

This awesome vegan sub is loaded with smoky cauliflower wings that are SO GOOD, but I think my favourite part is the fresh corn salsa.

We finish it off with a cashew ranch sauce that I loooove (exhibit A, B and C) and it adds so much creaminess and good flavour!

I love this meatball sub with sticky sweet & sour vegan meatballs, fresh crisp veggies and a spicy vegan mayo on top! This recipe comes together in about 20 minutes, which makes it great for a quick meal.

Tempeh Chorizo Sheet Pan Breakfast Wraps

I couldn’t decide whether these breakfast wraps belonged in the breakfast sandwich section or wraps section, but you can eat them any time of day so I’m going to leave them here.

Vegan Buffalo Chick’n Quesadilla Pockets with Cashew Ranch

Spicy seitan chick’n with onions, wrapped into triangle tortilla pockets, each cut into four triangle pieces and dipped in cashew ranch. It truly is a match made in heaven! You need to ranch to offset the spiciness of the chick’n, trust me. Instead of baking it in one giant piece on the sheet pan like on our vegan sheet pan quesadillas, we are making two triangle pockets. Same amount of servings, different shape. SO GOOD!

Vegan Sheet Pan Quesadillas with Avocado Lime Cream

Speaking of sheet pan quesadillas… This recipe is so quick and easy to prepare. I love using a sheet pan for quesadillas because it keeps everything contained and there’s no flipping required! This sheet pan quesadilla is packed with cheddar, corn, bell pepper, onion and vegan beef, all into a crispy golden pocket then smothered in an avocado lime cream sauce. It truly is a weeknight wonder because you can whip it up in under 20 minutes, then the rest of the time its baking in the oven, which allows you some time to decompress after a busy day
