Sweet Potato Hummus Plate

Technically this isn’t hummus, but this sweet potato tahini dip is made lovingly in its image. Cumin, garlic, lemon, and salt round out the sweet, creamy, earthy mix of sweet potatoes and tahini. Serve with veggies or crackers and a few briny olives for a satisfying snack board lunch.

Egg yolk, Parmesan, and anchovies give a traditional Caesar dressing its signature creaminess, saltiness, and umami flavor. You can still achieve that with some of our favorite vegan pantry essentials: miso, vegenaise, vegan Worcestershire sauce, and nutritional yeast.

It doesn’t get easier than this. The dressing is incredibly forgiving (the creamy Dijon mustard makes emulsifying foolproof), and from there, all you have to do is chop and toss everything together.

The perfect way to take advantage of summer corn, this recipe balances its sweetness with smoky poblano and spicy jalapeño peppers, plus tangy lime juice.

Kale and Avocado Salad with Roasted Carrots

Hit the hot veggies with sherry vinegar right when they come out of the oven, so they really absorb the deep, sweet, and tangy flavor. And make this salad ahead of time for potlucks and packed lunches—the roasted veggies and sturdy kale keep well.
