Plant-Based Recipes

Eating more plants is easily the tastiest way to diversify your diet while supporting your gut microbiome and overall health. Fruits, vegetables, and grains often have naturally occurring prebiotics, which will feed the bacteria in your gut. A healthy gut microbiome can mean better digestion and improved immunity—just a few of the many benefits. Here are our top plant-based recipes to get you inspired.


Smoothies are the best vehicle for veggies at breakfast. Keeping a few different recipes in your rotation is ideal since you’ll get a variety of nutrients, and it keeps things interesting. You can also try adding a gut-supporting supplement, like our Gut Microbiome Superpowder, to your favorite smoothie to up the ante. The powder is flavorless, so it can go seamlessly into any breakfast creation. And it’s formulated with prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes, and aloe vera to support a healthy gut, reduce occasional bloating, and promote healthy and normal bowel function.*

Matcha Avocado Smoothie

This smoothie gets its green color from matcha and avocado. So creamy and delicious.


Chocolate Cherry Almond Smoothie

Starting the day with a chocolate smoothie sure feels like a treat. Using frozen cauliflower is a nice way to get some veggies in first thing.


Pepita Blueberry Tahini Smoothie

Tahini makes this plant-based smoothie rich and satisfying.


Pumpkin Spice and Greens Smoothie

Reminiscent of pumpkin pie—but thanks to the spinach, almond butter, and pumpkin purée, it’s a filling on-the-go breakfast.



Hearty salads with roasted veggies, crunchy summer rolls with a creamy satay sauce, chickpea salad on toast, and a rich squash soup. Whoever said eating veggies wouldn’t be satisfying obviously wasn’t ordering off this menu.

Kale and Avocado Salad with Roasted Carrots

The trick to this roasted-veggie salad is to hit the hot veggies with sherry vinegar right when they come out of the oven, so they really absorb that tangy flavor.


Brown Rice Summer Rolls

Summer rolls are basically handheld salads with a delicious dipping sauce, and we love them for it.


Curried Chickpea Salad

A plant-based riff on one of our favorite deli-inspired lunch dishes.


Creamy Cashew and Butternut Squash Soup

Adding cashews to a puréed soup is a fantastic way to add richness and body without dairy.



These plant-based dinners feel like an event, with big flavors that leave you full and happy. Vegetable-forward dinners often push us to explore new cuisines or reinvent familiar favorites, and that kind of creativity winds up being delicious.

Eggplant, Cauliflower, and Tofu Ssam-Style Lettuce Cups

A meat-free homage to traditional pork bo ssam. Here we did a combination of tofu, cauliflower, and eggplant, but you could change it up with almost any sturdy roasting vegetables you have on hand.


Walnut Mushroom Bolognese

You could welcome any carnivorous skeptic into your home and serve them this vegan dinner.


Socca with BBQ Tempeh

BBQ chicken pizza gets a plant-based update. The best thing about this recipe is how the cooked elements—the socca crust, the clean BBQ sauce, and the tempeh—are juxtaposed with the cool, crunchy, fresh veggies that you add on top at the very end.


Chickpea and Kale Curry

Serve with brown rice or some quinoa for a hearty, well-rounded dinner.
