Vegan Zucchini ‘Meatballs’– less than 10 ingredients and 20 minutes for a healthy and delicious plant-based meal. Each serving offers 12 grams of protein! (vegan + gluten-free)
If you have yet to try any of the said zucchini recipes up to this point, I’m going to say this one is probably my favorite.
On the other hand, these Vegan Zucchini “Meatballs” are waaaaay easier. They require less than 10 ingredients and 20 minutes to make, and all you have to clean is a bowl and a food processor. That’s the kind of recipe I like to have on repeat.
Vegan Pineapple Fried Rice ~ sweet, savory and spicy! So easy to make and takes 30 minutes on the stove.
What’s the best rice to use for Pineapple Fried Rice?
I like to use medium-long grain rice, but most will work fine. I’ll just use whatever I have available and this time I used Mahatma White Rice and it worked perfectly!
This dish works best with cold, day-old rice because it’s drier than freshly cooked and it will keep a firmer texture. You can cook it the night before and refrigerate
overnight (or at least 6-8 hours). It will still be tasty if you haven’t chilled the rice, but the texture will be a lot softer than typical fried rice.
This easy vegan jambalaya is full of fresh produce and ready in under an hour – the perfect healthy vegan recipe for busy weeknights.
I am a huge fan of dinners that are quick, easy, and don’t involve a last-minute trip to the grocery store. This spicy (vegan!) jambalaya definitely falls into that category.
If I’m particularly hungry, I’ll throw in some portobello mushrooms or tofu to give it a bit more oomph, but for the most part I eat it just like you see it here. Full of tomatoes and cilantro (two of my favorite things in the universe) with a nice kick from the jalapeño and paprika.
Easy, 20 Minute Vegan Pasta! You are going to love this healthy, easy vegan pasta! With a trick to creating glossy, restaurant-style pasta, this is a must save for quick dinners.
This pasta is my go-to meal for so many dinners. It’s vegan, loaded with vegetables and delicious. Plus, it’s ready in less than 20 minutes, perfect for any I’m so hangry moments. I used spinach here, because there’s no chopping involved and I always have it in my fridge, but feel free to sub in any green of your choice.
