Buttery Spaetzle with Roasted Cauliflower and Shallots
Rating: Unrated 2
Smoky roasted cauliflower and nutty brown butter headline this satisfying vegetarian main course. Like tiny gnocchi, German spaetzle are delicious simply blanched but spring to a whole new level when crisped with butter in a pan. This recipe calls for store-bought dried spaetzle, which turn springy and chewy when cooked. Boiled then crisped in butter, they get a finishing lift from fresh dill and crushed red pepper.

Tempeh Tacos with Cabbage Slaw 
These satisfying vegan tacos are made with tempeh, a protein-packed fermented soy-based product with roots in Indonesia. Tempeh crumbles nicely, making it a great option when you don't want to use ground meat, like in this taco. Flavored with all the classic taco seasonings, plus some fresh bell pepper and onion for flavor and color, the filling is piled onto charred tortillas and topped with a red cabbage slaw. Keep these vegan by passing on the traditional crema drizzle and using almond butter flavored with garlic and lime juice.
Zeytinyağli Yaprak Sarmasi (Vegetarian Stuffed Grape Leaves)
From the Turkish region of Mugla, these tangy, tender vegetarian rice-and-herb-stuffed grape leaves (Zeytinyağli Yaprak Sarmasi) can be made a day ahead, making them a great appetizer for easy entertaining. The brightness of the brined grape leaves is balanced by the rice filling, which is seasoned with fresh parsley and dill and slightly sweet cooked onions. If making the stuffed grape leaves the day before, refrigerate them overnight and bring them to room temperature before serving.
