Simple Vegan Recipes are the best for weight loss but also for improving your health and for helping you live a better life. When I started dieting, I had no idea of how I was ever going to get healthy. I had read and heard enough to know that it was impossible to get thin by only eating vegetables. But when it came to vegan food, I could see that this wasn’t true. It was possible to be slim and healthy.

An Overview

Healthy vegan recipes let you feel that you aren’t harming animals or hurting the planet while you are eating breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even snacks. Vegan cooking is simply cooking with ingredients derived from plants without animal products involved. It is not that mysterious. But if you are new to eating vegetarian, then making cooking for other food groups a little easier can certainly help free up more time to find new favorite ingredients, new recipes, and cooking techniques.

One of my favorite vegan recipes is one pot meals. There is such variety in vegan cooking that it is possible to have a whole meal made up with just one pot of ingredients. This is especially true when it comes to foods like quinoa, which is a seed that has been eaten for centuries in many cultures all over the world. It has a rich nutty flavor and is easily converted into a starch that makes it easy to cook with. You can make quinoa salad, quinoa pilaf, or a delicious vegetable ragout with the seeds baked into it. In addition to being a great side dish or a healthy breakfast food, quinoa is great in pasta recipes and in some desserts.

Use Cookbooks 

Simple vegan recipes like these are some of my favorites. If you are looking for a fast and simple way to prepare some of these dishes, I highly recommend one of the Indian recipes in my cookbook. The author, Anjum Anand, has done a fantastic job of presenting the ingredients in an easy to follow manner. Some of the dishes are so popular that they have been incorporated into vegan versions of famous fast food restaurants around the world.

For my pineapple fried rice, I used my jambalaya and added coconut milk and a dash of Tandoori Masala. I served this along with some basmati rice and brown rice for a delicious healthy breakfast. The next morning, I prepared some chicken nuggets along with some barbecue sauce for a delicious lunch. The chicken was tender and the Tandoori masala added a nice spicy taste to the chicken nuggets.

Another of the many simple vegan recipes in the cookbook was a mouthwatering pasta dish that my family loves. This one called Spaghetti with Sunflower Sauce offered me and my kids a nice change of pace from our usual spicy spaghetti. We made the sauce the night before and cooked it on the night before our main dinner. The dish didn’t taste too hot or too mild, which is always a bonus when you’re cooking for a crowd. We made enough for the whole family, and my kids enjoyed their dinner just as much or more than we did.

The Best Pasta Recipe 

My other vegan one pot pasta recipes were all about tomatoes. I created a delicious tomato and spinach pasta salad, which were full of flavor and very nutritious. I used crushed tomatoes, chopped up onions, some basil, some baby spinach (which was fresh), some chopped veggie stock, some elbow grease, and a bit of lemon juice to make a tasty and nutritious meal. Although the spinach came in at the end, I think the other ingredients actually enhanced the flavor of the tomato.

Conclusion

For the sauce, I used reduced-fat sour cream, some whole milk, some nutritional yeast, and a pinch of salt. I combined all of these ingredients, stirred, and let them coat the pasta until they were completely coated. Then I cut into strips and fried them in vegetable oil until they were golden brown. I served this spinach and tomato “ziti” recipe along with some steamed white broccoli. It was a really delicious and healthy meal, which definitely hit the spot!
