An R.D’s Tip For Cooking Vegan & Non-Vegan Meals Together

Letting go of the things you like is a good place to start, but sometimes you need a little more direction. Fortunately, Moore had some advice on where to start.

"Think of tacos made with chipotle-fried tofu for one and chipotle-fried chicken for the other," she says. "You can both enjoy the same bubbly soft tortillas, crispy coleslaw, and creamy avocado – just swap out the protein." Tacos, by and large, are a good example of the types of meals best suited for a couple with different eating habits: dishes with "some assembly required" that lets you choose the components.

Your other suggestion? "Use the same strategy for Mediterranean lunch bowls, where you can use za & # 39; atar seasoned chickpeas for one and za & # 39; atar seasoned chicken for the other." This approach is also great for cook-free, assembly-oriented lunch meals. Canned fish and canned chickpeas make a great salad paired with your favorite vegetables and a homemade dressing.

Another great, easy evening option is dinner in the sheet pan: if you have two sheet pans, you can cook vegetables, carbohydrates, and other components for both as a base, and then top each pan with your preferred protein.

Whichever type of dish you choose, keep this simple approach in mind as a great setting for many delicious, compatible meals.
