5 Easy Vegan Meals That Everyone Will Envy

Despite the fact that plant-based diets have become increasingly popular in recent years, there still seems to be a stigma around veganism. For whatever reason, many people continue to think that this lifestyle is hard to maintain or it’s too expensive or there’s simply nothing to eat. But, after being vegan myself for almost two years, I came to the realization that all of these accusations just aren’t true. I find myself spending less and less on groceries, making meals in less than 30 minutes and certainly eating more than just fruits and vegetables. To demonstrate how simple it is to sustain a vegan lifestyle, here are five of my favorite go-to recipes that won’t disappoint.

  1. First up is my all time favorite: Spinach Artichoke Pizza. I know what you’re thinking, how can a pizza even taste remotely good without a little bit of dairy? But I can assure that this pizza is like nothing you’ve ever tasted. It’s like eating spinach artichoke dip off of a fluffy dough that will make you feel warm and happy on the inside. Plus, it only takes about 20 minutes to make, and you can have leftovers the next day that will make all of your coworkers envious.

  1. Next up is this Peanut Tofu Buddha Bowl. Personally, I think you can pour some peanut sauce on anything and I’ll start drooling over it. This recipe is so simple because everything goes in the same bowl. You’ve got brown rice, carrots, broccoli and crispy tofu drenched in a creamy, spicy peanut sauce that will make a perfect meal for lunch, dinner or even a midnight snack.

  1. Don’t think I forgot about breakfast, it is the most important meal of the day after all. So start your morning out right with these Fluffy Vegan Pancakes. Pancakes are essential to any lazy Sunday morning, and finding the right vegan recipe is important. These pancakes taste even better than those filled with eggs and dairy. They taste so similar that you can serve these to your non-vegan friends and they wouldn’t even bat an eye. Fill them up with blueberries, bananas or chocolate chips for an indulging experience. Don’t worry, here’s the recipe for you to try them out yourself:  Fluffy Vegan Pancakes Recipe

  1. My next favorite is this One Pot Spinach and Mushroom Bowtie Pasta. Can we all agree that bowtie pasta is just better than any other pasta shape? I mean come on, it’s a bowtie.  My favorite thing about this pasta recipe is that everything goes into one pot which makes clean up that much easier. The mix of mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, and spices make sure every bite is full of flavor. It’s sure to be a hit at your next dinner party.  One Pot Spinach and Mushroom Bowtie Pasta Recipe

  1. Let’s finish off with a dessert classic like these Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies. If you want to treat yourself after a long, hard week, there’s no better way than these irresistibly soft cookies that you’ll probably want to devour in 10 minutes. Good thing this recipe yields 50, so you can share them with your family or friends, but I wouldn’t blame you if you kept them for yourself. Here’s the recipe, so get baking!​ Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
