The Throw-Together Vegan

The Throw Together Vegan | RecipesMy friend has been telling me I should write a cookbook of vegan recipes for a couple years now and I have resisted for many reasons, the main one being that I don’t like to cook.

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

Mix together…

  • 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

Mix together…

  • 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!!!
