7 Simple and Delicious Plant-Based Recipes


Plant-based recipes are often anything but “simple and delicious.” Yet, we promise that’s not the case here. Even in the few instances where a fair number of ingredients are included, these plant-based recipes are still easy to put together. That means you can have a delicious meal on the table in no time.

1. BBQ Seitan Ribs

These “ribs” are the perfect option for vegans and vegetarians who really miss the meat. The delicious barbeque sauce is made with Pacific Foods Herb Roasted Garlic Plant-Based Broth and the texture of the seitan is a bit like that of pork on the bone. 

Serve these seitan ribs with a side or two, like a nice salad or baked potato. As a note, these are rich—we recommend saving this recipe for when you want an extravagant and indulgent meal.

The dressing is made with Pacific Foods Organic Carrot Cashew Ginger Soup, which is so delicious you’ll be happy to have some left over for lunches or nutrient-rich midday snacks.

If you’re timid about trying something new, this recipe is about as easy as it gets, and you’re bound to love it.

7. Creamy Orzotto With Roasted Vegetables

If the word “orzotto” is unfamiliar, it’s like a risotto dish, but it’s made with pearl barley instead of rice. This is another super simple recipe with fewer ingredients than most of the others. Our creamy orzotto with roasted vegetables features a wonderful blend of textures, from creamy to almost crispy. To make it completely plant-based, you can use vegan cheese.

It’s made with Pacific Foods Herb Roasted Garlic Plant Based Broth, which is also one of our favorite sipping broths. This dish works beautifully as a nice, filling main dish or an exciting side.
