Quick vegan dinners or lunches, as you want. These 10 recipes are all super fast and easy to make, they are healthy and delicious! And you can prepare them all under 20 minutes, so you have absolutely no excuse anymore to not have a perfectly healthy meal!
I am definitely a lazy person. Though I love cooking and having fun in the kitchen, the last thing I want to do is spending half of my day there. Just no!
It’s especially true when:
- I’m alone – It’s just not fun when you can’t share the foodie love
- I’m hungry – I need food right that moment!
- I’m having guests – I want to spend time with them and not with a pot
- I’m tired – Who wants to cook for 2 hours after a long day?!
CREAMY WILD GARLIC SPRING PASTA
Pasta dishes are the best when it comes to quick meals. Such as this one with a super creamy-dreamy cashew sauce. It’s light and fresh and so simple to make! Use any herbs or greens if you don’t have ramps.
Such a classical! And here again, all you need is a food processor and a few fresh ingredients. I just don’t see why you wouldn’t love it….as a bonus you can check out how I make my vegan parmesan.
A slice of toast or a lovely sandwich are amazing quick lunch or dinner options. Easy to grab and well transportable. I love to put avocado or hummus on my toast, or something green and healthy like this superfood kale spread.
Something unusual, but I love it a lot: raw broccoli! This salads is filling and delicious. And if you make it a bit more creamier you can also use as a pasta sauce or as a spread in your sandwich. So cool!
Using legumes in your lunch or dinner salads is possible the best way to have a light but still very-very satisfying meal. Chickpeas are my favourites: I just open a can, add whatever else I have at home and voila, deliciousness. Here I used mango, chili, mint and hemp seeds.
This is definitely one of my favourite recipes from the blog. The pine nuts as the base of this dressing make the creamiest dressing ever. Especially delicious with romaine lettuce, napa cabbage, kale and spinach.
These spicy and tangy balls make the best office lunch or snack. They are also delicious with a salad or on a slice of bread. Easy to take with you and even easier to make.
Cauliflower rice is the coolest invention ever! These cabbage balls are perfect for a quick meal and even to take with you for a picnic. The crunchy cabbage leaves are filled with healthy cauliflower rice, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts and a lots of green herbs. So pretty and so easy to make!
Spring rolls are great fresh and also delicious the next day to take with you to work. Eating and making these spring rolls is also a fun get together activity, so it’s just the perfect quick meal when you have guests. Use any of your favourite veggies, legumes or grains to fill the rolls.
And as a plus one the simplest and most comforting food. I always go for pesto when I have no idea what to make but I need a quick meal. It’s also my favourite way to use up any leftover greens, herbs and nuts.
Instead of pine nuts you can use:
Almonds, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds…or a mixture of those
Instead of basil you can use:
Parsley, dill, spinach, arugula, zucchini, tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, broccoli…or a mixture of those
You can also play with different oils. And I like to add a little citrus juice too…
