Tandoori Cauliflower

With its warm, spicy, and almost meat-like flavor and texture, this cauliflower dish can be served as a side or a vegetarian main dish that still feels hearty. As a unique way to serve cauliflower, it looks impressive but is easy to pull together. Feel free to make the yogurt sauce ahead of time.

Jackfruit Carnitas Tacos

This flavorful fiesta-on-a-plate involves an unlikely main ingredient: fruit! Jackfruit is an extremely versatile ingredient because it absorbs and takes on the flavors of spices and other ingredients incredibly well, which helps lend these tacos their authentic flair. The fruit itself is pale in color and has a flaky, meaty texture, which makes it the perfect meat substitute for a vegetarian or vegan dinner option so everyone can enjoy it.
