We don't really like "health" food, so I'm talking about food that's not pizza.

I do meatless Monday and rotate between bean dishes, fish and tofu/tempeh. I save the pizza/pasta type food for Thursdays.

For tofu or tempeh which are both soy but the texture is different I make stir fry, crumble it into a taco meat, use it as an eggroll filling. I once seasoned it with shwarma spice but I didnt love that. You might though. I have cut the tempeh into small triangles so each edge gets crispy and baked it in different sauces. I like the texture of it better then tofu but its a little more expensive.

For fish I stick to basics like salmon filets in different sauces, flounder dredged in seasoned flour and pan fried in a little oil and served on a bun with tarter sauce. Fish tacos always go over well.

For bean dishes tacos, burritos, bean burgers, bean soups. There are lots of possibilities.

Falafel balls in pita - salads and techina

Eggplant paninis- I cook eggplant in sandwich maker/panini maker sliced. Then use whole wheat wrap, sauce, lots of eggplant and some cheese.

Eggplant ‘parm’ - layer eggplant, breadcrumbs, sauce, cheese. Cover tightly. Bake until soft. Like 1 hr. Uncover. Pour on tomato sauce. Little sugar (substitute) and olive oil. Bake uncovered. (I’ve made this for years and it’s delicious. This shavous it was a flop maybe bec I couldn’t uncover).

I made tofu that actually came out really good. Make sure to drain, press and get out all the water/liquid.cut in squares. Mix with corn starch a bit of oil and soy sauce. Lay flat on a sheet pan and roast at 425 for about 20 min till crispy.
Salmon burgers. Omelets or shakshuka. Hearts of palm pasta (make sure to to drain well and I boil them) sub pasta with a veggie like eggplant etc
Fish tacos (not fried)vegetarian chili

I make a really easy (and pretty healthy) pareve chili that can be eaten alone (as a soup) or over pasta, rice or even spaghetti squash.
