A selection of 30-minute vegan meals that are delicious, easy, and healthy too! Featuring curries, pasta dishes, bowls and much more, this selection of vegan meals will have your weeknight cooking covered. Many gluten-free and oil-free options.
One of the most common questions I get is: how do you have time to eat healthy? And the simple answer is that healthy eating isn’t time consuming. Well, not always.
For me, what takes the most time is logging onto Pinterest for inspo and reemerging after an hour of delicious procrastination.
In all seriousness, I think that having a rotation of go-to recipes is key. That was the inspiration behind my new cookbook, Weeknight One Pot Vegan Cooking!
The cookbook is packed full of delicious plant based recipes that can all be cooked up in a single pot or pan - so you can get dinner on the table quickly and not waste your evening on clean up. Sound good? Go grab a copy here!
And in the meantime, here are a few of my favorite vegan recipes that can be whipped up in 30 minutes or less.
