Curried Coconut Greens and Quinoa with Roasted Cauliflower
This healthy meal can be served as a main dish, and it consists of quinoa that has been cooked in GMO-free coconut milk. It’s prepared with an array of Indian spices and combined with green vegetables of your choice, which are then topped off with roasted cauliflower. If you need to bulk this dish up or you feel that you need a little extra protein, it can be served along with a portion of chickpeas or lentils.
Creamy Butternut Squash Linguine with Fried Sage
Another favorite dinner option in that it’s spicy and creamy (despite not having any form of dairy added to it). This meal consists of butternut squash that has been tossed liberally with whole grain linguine (or even fettucine if preferred). When topped with fried sage (or any other herb of your choice), it can make the ideal comfort food on those chilly winter evenings. It can be served on its own, with salad (during the cooler summer months) or even a heaped serving of roasted vegetables.
Spicy Sweet Potato and Green Rice Burrito Bowls
Instead of using store-bought burrito bowls, you can make these healthy alternatives with roasted sweet potatoes, black beans and green rice. Use an array of spices such as cumin, paprika, chili powder, shallots and a clove of garlic to bring out the flavor significantly. An added bonus to this meal is that it can be served at dinner or for lunch because of the fact that it reheats so well.
Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake Bites
Who says that vegans always have to forgo having delicious desserts because of their dietary restrictions? These scrumptious little bites say differently. Consisting of just 4 ingredients (pecans, shredded coconut, dates and sea salt), the base is easy to prepare. The filling is creamy, yet it contains no dairy of any sort, making it an ideal vegan dessert option. Raw cashews, agave nectar, frozen strawberry slices, melted coconut oil and lemon juice are all that is required to make one of the yummiest vegan desserts around.
As you can see, enjoying a vegan diet doesn’t have to be boring in the least. In fact, there are many options available that will be filling and completely satisfying. An added benefit that you could enjoy from switching to a vegan diet is that you could become healthier and leaner over time – while still being able to thoroughly enjoy the most fantastic array of meal options.
