6 Surprising Vegetarian Entrées That Are Better Than Filet Mignon
Step aside, filet mignon. We’ve figured out how to cook fruits and veggies so they steal the limelight. Here’s the secret: Treat them like meat. Instead of quickly sautéing them or serving them raw, brine, cure, marinate, roast and season away. You’ll get entrée-worthy results with layers and layers of flavor.
Grilled Watermelon Steaks
Grab your steak knives: This main is hefty, smoky and perfectly seasoned with flaky salt.
Roasted Beet Tartare
Cue the white tablecloths and hushed French waiters.
Butter-Baked Cucumber Tostadas
Did you know you can roast cucumbers just like chicken? The result is irresistibly crisp and tender, with none of the bitter edge that sometimes characterizes cukes.
Veggie Niçoise Salad with Red Curry Green Beans
Forget the limp, flavorless veggie you know and hate. Green beans marinated in red curry are anything but meh.
Spicy Whole Roasted Cauliflower
As dramatic and fancy as roast duck (but it takes only one hour).
