Mediterranean Burger Gyro

Nothing beats picking up a hot gyro while you’re walking around the city on a cold day. This is a vegan-friendly version featuring our Plant-Based Classic Fish Burgers paired with a deliciously easy harissa mayo. Plus, the video demos a helpful time-saver — grill your onions and warm your pitas at the same time.

Crab Stuffed Baby Bella Mushrooms

These stuffed mushrooms are filled with our Plant-Based New England Style Crab Cakes and baked in tomato sauce for a saucy entrée. Dig in family-style alongside a big serving bowl of polenta, rice pilaf or garlicky white beans.

Fish-Free Manhattan Chowder

Manhattan chowder refers to a brothy, tomato-based seafood soup (versus the creamy New England–inspired version). This one-pot recipe calls for ingredients you probably already have stocked in your pantry, plus our Plant-Based Naked in Water Tuna or Plant-Based Mediterranean Tuna for a soul-warming take on chowder. Watch the video to see how quickly this hearty soup can come together on a weeknight.

Mushroom Pasta with Thai Fish Cakes

Guest recipe by @astepfullofyou

Some nights, only pasta will do. Use a long pasta like fettuccine or linguine, which cooks in aromatics, mushrooms, vegetable broth and coconut milk to soak up all the flavor and create a creamy-yet-light sauce. Stir in baby greens and top with Plant-Based Thai Style Fish Cakes for a seafood pasta night done right.

Curried Tuna Stuffed Sweet Potato

Guest recipe by @foodbymaria

This is total comfort food — slow-roasted sweet potatoes filled with a savory, creamy curry. Grab a roasting pan, spices and some Plant-Based Naked in Water Tuna to get started. Tip: Make the curry filling ahead of time and store in the refrigerator for hands-off weekday meals.
