1. Instead of Parmesan, Try Nutritional Yeast. Sure, it’s not quite the same, but craving a little crumbly goodness on top of your salad or pasta? Replace your old dairy standby with the vegan nutritional yeast. Sure, it’s not quite the same, but it will add a completely new, and equally delicious, flavor to your meal.
2. Instead of Mashed Potatoes, Try Mashed Turnips or Rutabaga.Growing tired of the same old pule of lumpy mashed potatoes on your dinner plate? Expand your options into other root veggies for variations in flavor and texture.
3. Instead of Wheat Pasta, Try Squash. A great way for carb-lovers to eat their veggies is to swap out pasta for squashes like the appropriately named spaghetti squash, pictured above, or even ribbons of zucchini. After cooking the squash, prepare the same way you would regular pasta.
