1.  Meatless Shrimp Po' Boy

Popcorn Shrimp:

6 Vegan Shrimp cut in half 

Tempura Flour 8oz box 


1/4 cup Water

Enough oil to cover shrimp to deep fry

Scallion Cream Sauce:

4 ounces Vegan Sour Cream (Tofutti, Follow Your Heart, etc.)

8 ounces Vegan Mayo (Follow Your Heart, Naysoya, etc)

5 scallions chopped fine

1/2 of a lime or 1 tablespoon lime or lemon Juice

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup finely shredded green cabbage and iceberg lettuce (50/50 mix)

1/4 cup chopped tomato

1 toasted french roll


Divide tempura flour equally into three bowls

Bowl 1: Plain Tempura flour

Bowl 2: Tempura batter. Add water to flour enough to form a thick but still runny liquid (think pancake syrup)

Bowl 3: 2 parts Tempura flour, 1 part cornmeal

Bowl 1: Dust the shrimp pieces with tempura flour, shake off excess flour

Bowl 2: Coat the pieces evenly with batter

Bowl 3: Drop Shrimp one at a time into flour/cormeal mix and shake bowl to coat

Fry shrimp in 350 degree oil until golden brown (about 2-3 min).   Whisk together cream sauce ingredients. Get your favorite vegan 1/2 split french roll, put a line of cream sauce down the middle. Add the shrimp, top with cabbage/lettuce mix, tomatoes, and finish with more Scallion Cream Sauce. Enjoy!

2.  Non-Bacon Cheeseburger

For this one just make a classic cheesburger the way you normally would, but swap out the meat with The Beyond Burger. Most people can't tell the difference. YUM!
