I see amazingly delicious recipes all the time for vegan dishes that I know I would love to eat, but wouldn’t enjoy preparing, so I never do.
I share them with all my vegan and vegan-ish friends and followers on social media and in my 7 Day Vegan Challenge (www.facebook.com/groups/VeganWeek) and my Vegan Recipe Group (www.facebook.com/groups/7DayVeg).
I want to give people the most delicious and exciting recipes I can find to give them a great plant-based experience. But the truth is, I won’t ever make most of these meals myself because it seems like a lot of time, energy, and effort I would rather put into another part of my life.
Now if I had a personal chef, it would be an entirely different story!! I would have him make me these incredible and thoughtful dishes 24/7. But as it stands, it’s just me and it’s just not going to happen!
Like I said, I post fun and creative vegan recipes I find online daily as well as posting pics of my own “throw-together” meals. I have been doing this consistently for the past couple years and it always surprises me that more people respond to the pics/recipes of my throw together meals, so one of these two things is true…
1. There are more lazy people like me than I had thought
2. My pics look fancier than the meal actually is
Either way, my “recipes” are more in demand than I had thought, so I wanted to share a couple with you!
Here are 2 of my most common easy vegan meals…
Brown Rice (or Quinoa) Curry w Broccoli
- Can of Amy’s coconut Curry Soup
- Packet of microwaveable brown rice, quinoa, or my fave is a mix of the two
- Bag of cooked broccoli (frozen or fresh)
- Garlic (I use a lot)
- Ginger (I use a lot)
- Turmeric (I use a lot)
Brown Rice w Avocado, Tomato, and Pumpkin Seeds
- Packet of microwaveable brown rice
- Avocado diced
- 2 tomatoes diced
- Pumpkin seeds
- Sea salt to taste
- Vegenaise to get it all wet
Each of these meals take about 5 mins to prep and my non-vegan, junk food hubby loves them both…bonus!!!
I would estimate each meal costs me about $10 which may be too much for some people, but is on par with what I typically spend on meals I prep at home.
Also neither require much clean-up, which is possibly the main reason I don’t like to cook/prep anything complicated or fancy.
So there you have it, my two fave throw together vegan meals. I may make a “cookbook” after all!!!
