5 Components of an Easy Vegan Dinner


Sometimes, I want to throw a bunch of veggies in a pan, find a protein source and call it dinner.  These dinners don't need recipes.  The key to an easy vegan dinner is simple:

Protein Source:  

beans, quinoa, tempeh, tofu, hummus

Veggies:

The combinations are endless, my favorite are kale, brussels sprouts or broccoli

Grain:

brown rice, quinoa, rice noodles, sprouted bread

Raw:

base salad, chopped raw veggies, broccoli straws, green onions

Flavor:

olive oil, tamari, sriracha, nutritional yeast, avocado, green chilis, salsa

You can pick a few items from each, mix it together, and you have dinner.  Of course, there are endless possibilities, but my go-to vegan dinners usually have a component from each one of these categories.





Also, I love to eat things in bowls.









What are your favorite go-to dinners?

  1. I love this! I'm going to start sending this link to people who ask me for newbie vegan what-to-cook advice. It's so simple and yet so delicious. Also, I love things in bowls too.

  2. Love this! I've really been trying to move away from my recipe dependency and just get in the kitchen and make things up! Hard for me, but lists like this make it easier! Yay!
