Recently started a vegan diet plan? Finding simple vegan recipes can be tricky, although you are more limited to what you can eat when avoiding animal produce and looking to keep it healthy. In this article we’ve compiled some vegan food recipes for anyone who is struggling for ideas! Bon appetite!
 

  1. Mediterranean baked potato
    A baked potato is a staple of a simple and healthy diet, although what interesting vegan topping can give it that zing? We’d suggest filling it with artichoke, lemon and olives, which will add much needed flavour without depending on animal produce such as cheese and tuna.

    Ingredients
    Four medium baked potatoes
    One teaspoon of olive oil or coconut oil
    One cup of artichoke hearts (oil packed)
    Quarter cup of kalamata olives
    Half teaspoon of lemon zest (grated)


     
  2. Pesto pasta
    Pasta provides a great opportunity to accompany all your favourite vegetables – although one of our healthy meals has to be a light pesto pasta! Ours is the perfect fresh dish to enjoy on a warm summers night, as it can be eaten hot or cold depending on your preference.

    Ingredients
    One pound of spaghetti (or a pasta of your preference)
    One cob of sweetcorn
    One medium-sized yellow squash (thick chunks)
    One large red onion (sliced)
    One half jar of pesto
    Half cup of sundried tomatoes
    Quarter cup of fresh parsley (chopped)
    Half lemon (squeezed)
    One bell pepper (sliced chunks)


     
  3. Beet and coconut pasta
    Finding great comfort food which is healthy and vegan can be tricky, but you can always depend on pasta to help you form an easy vegan recipe. Introducing beets into your diet is a great way of upping your intake of vitamin C, B, fibre and potassium.

    Ingredients
    One pound of spaghetti (or a pasta of your preference)
    Four beets (roasted or cooked)
    Quarter cup of fresh mint
    Two cloves of garlic (diced)
    Half cup of coconut milk
    Two tablespoons of pine nuts (toasted)
    One lemon (squeezed)
    One tablespoon of cashew butter


     
  4. Hummus pizza
    Who doesn’t love hummus? And who doesn’t love pizza? One of the more popular homemade simple vegan recipes involves adding hummus to pizza dough instead of tomato sauce and adding toppings. Much like a normal pizza, the topping will depend on your preference, but a personal favourite here at Curves is mushrooms, tomatoes, olives, red onion and spinach. This is one of the simplest meals you can make and is perfect for lunch.

    Ingredients
    Half tub of hummus
    Sourdough pizza bread
    Half cup of mushrooms
    Half an onion
    Half cup of olives (halved)
    Half cup of baby tomatoes (halved)
    Half cup of fresh spinach


     
  5. Sweet potato soup
    When preparing a fast vegan meal which is low in calories and full of nutrients, soup is always a great choice. At Curves, we’d recommend making a delicious sweet potato soup, which is jam-packed with chilli for a kick and peanut butter to make the soup extra creamy.

    Ingredients
    One litre of vegetable stock
    Two tablespoons of organic smooth peanut butter
    Two medium/large sweet potatoes (cut into small pieces)
    One onion (diced)
    Two sticks of celery (diced)
    Two plumb tomatoes
    One chilli (chopped)
    Two garlic cloves (diced)
    Small piece of ginger (grated)
    Two tablespoons of groundnut oil
