Being a plant-only eater shouldn’t mean boring or unhealthy food – here are some great healthy vegan mains:
Jerk-spiced jackfruit and mango avocado salsa pack these vegan tacos with a big punch of flavor! They’re bright, fresh, and fun to eat.
Butter Bean Salad with Herby Vinaigrette
Who knew canned beans could be something to crave? Creamy butter beans are tossed with sweet grape tomatoes and a quick vinaigrette for an easy, satisfying salad that’s ideal for a potluck side or leftovers the next day.
Gingery Spring Soup
Sliced ginger and jalapeño provide this plant-based soup with a pleasant, invigorating kick. Asparagus, mushrooms, edamame and silken tofu help bulk up the soup, but for more staying power, add brown rice ramen noodles to the pot during the last few minutes of cooking.
Vegan Cauliflower Fried Rice
Substituting riced cauliflower for rice reduces calories and carbs in this veggie-packed dish. Use the vibrant flavors of fried rice—ginger, scallions and tamari—to create a low-carb version of the classic take-out meal.
Vegan Coconut Chickpea Curry
To make this 20-minute vegan curry even faster, buy precut veggies from the salad bar at the grocery store. To make it a full, satisfying dinner, serve over cooked brown rice. When shopping for simmer sauce, look for one with 400 mg of sodium or less and check the ingredient list for cream or fish sauce if you want to keep this vegan. If you like a spicy kick, add a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce at the end.
BBQ Cauliflower and Pineapple Pizza
