3 quick and easy recipes every vegan should know

If slaving away in the kitchen isn't your thing these simple vegan meals will make cooking much easier.

More people are now deciding to become vegan, but some people find it difficult to know where to start. Here are just a few meal ideas that you can cook in the blink of an eye and on a budget.

Spaghetti bolognese

What you'll need:

  • Tinned tomatoes
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Peppers
  • Lentils
  • 1 Courgette
  • Spices of your choice (salt, pepper, oregano, basil, garlic)
  • Pasta (do double check the ingredients for this)
  • Nutritional yeast

Simply dice your vegetables into small pieces, and boil them with the tinned tomatoes in a pan. Throw in all your herbs and stir them in to give you an equal flavour throughout. Leave to cook for 5-10 minutes and add a handful of lentils. These are a great source of protein and will fill you up quickly! Lentils will reduce the water content of the pan, so make sure to either add more juice from the tinned tomatoes.

Cook your pasta in a separate pan, and then dish up when you're ready. Sprinkle some nutritional yeast (optional) for some cheesy flavour on top!

Tomato soup

Of course, this one sounds boring, but on cold winter days, there is nothing more exciting than a warm and filling soup!

What you'll need:

  • Onion
  • Tomato paste
  • Carrots
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Vegetable stock cube
  • Spices of your choice
  • Lentils
  • Cloves of garlic

Fry the onion with garlic until your kitchen is full of their fragrant smells. Then, throw in some carrots and diced tomatoes, season them with salt and pepper and anything else of your choice. When this is done, add the tomato paste and the vegetable stock cube and bring to the boil. If you want to thicken the soup, pour in some lentils (before or after you blend, it doesn't really matter - all depends on the consistency you want!) wait until they cook in the liquid. Liquidise until smooth and serve with a sprinkle of (optional) pumpkin seeds on top for extra nutrients!

Stuffed peppers

What you'll need:

  • Large bell peppers
  • Quinoa/Couscous
  • Carrots
  • Onion
  • Mixed beans
  • Chopped tomatoes

Start off with cooking quinoa with twice the amount of water as the grain. Add salt to taste. Once this is cooking, core the pepper and get rid of the seeds so you have space to stuff the pepper. Fry your onions with carrots, and when browned, add the chopped tomatoes and beans (spicy sauce can also work well here!). Once the quinoa is done, take off the heat and throw it in with the vegetables and mix them together. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and place your empty peppers on a baking tray ready to stuff them with your mixture. For extra taste, sprinkle some nutritional yeast on top for that cheesy flavour. Place them in the oven and cook for ten minutes.
