From green smoothies to stir fry, it’s easy eating plant-based with this collection of healthy vegan recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Have you thought about trying a vegan diet but don’t know where to start? Whether you’re interested in starting Meatless Mondays or adopting a new lifestyle, these easy healthy vegan recipes will help you throughout your journey.
There is a lot of great information out there motivating people to eat more plants.
But what exactly should you eat?
The easiest thing to do is to start with what you have eaten in the past, and then figure out if you can try plant-based alternatives to these familiar foods.
And don’t forget that many things you’ve always eaten may already be naturally vegan!
Check out these easy healthy vegan recipes and see if they inspire you to try a plant-based diet.
The easiest way to start the day is with a green smoothie. They take minutes to make, and you can use whatever ingredients you have on hand. These are some of my favorites:
I like Philosophie Superfood Smoothies because you can take some basic ingredients, add a little protein powder, and get all the nutrients you need.
Peanut Butter Green Smoothie is another favorite. I personally love peanut butter, but you could also use a different nut butter such as almond.
I also love Homemade Granola with Berries. I usually have it with soy milk. But it’s delicious with non-dairy yogurt or on an acai bowl, too.
I enjoy salads for lunch. They are a great way to get in lots of greens and legumes, and they are easy to take on the go. These are some of my favorites:
Roasted Chickpea Fattoush Salad is gluten-free since it uses roasted chickpeas (garbanzo beans) instead of pita bread. This also adds a lot of protein making it a very filling dish.
Tangerine, Radish, and Avocado Kale Salad is great as a starter. Or you can make a bigger lunch-size portion. The seeds add a lot of nutrients along with the produce.
Hummus Salad Bowl is super easy to make. You can either use homemade hummus or store-bought. It holds up well as a meal to take with you to school or work.
Black-Eyed Peas and Corn Salad is another hearty salad. You can also eat it with tortilla chips.
Or you may be more of a soup person, especially during the colder winter months. Lots of soups are naturally vegan, such as lentil or vegetable soup.
Chickpea Noodle Soup is one of my favorite soups. It’s especially comforting when you’re feeling under the weather.
Or try one of these Tomato Soup Recipes. You can even make a grilled sandwich with vegan cheese to dip in it! There are some great non-dairy cheeses on the market these days. Some are made from coconut, cashews, or almonds.
And of course you can make a vegan sandwich with hummus, vegan cheese, roasted vegetables, chickpea salad, or any of your favorite ingredients.
When it comes to dinner, I often crave a warm meal. These are some of my go-to recipes:
Cilantro Lime Rice and Black Beans is great because you can customize it with whatever ingredients you like. You can also use it as a filling for tacos or burritos.
And speaking of Tacos, there are no shortage of amazing taco recipes that don’t rely on meat. If you enjoy Taco Tuesday, you can try a different recipe every week and never run out!
Another one of my go-to meals is Veggie Stir Fry. It’s really fast and easy to make. And you can use whatever ingredients you have on hand. Try different vegetables, add some tofu, tempeh, or nuts, and you have a delicious filling meal.
Have you heard of Soy Curls? They are one of my favorite versatile proteins! Just look at all the different dishes you can make with them.
And don’t forget the noodles! Creamy Sundried Tomato Pasta is always a favorite. You don’t need dairy to enjoy your favorite creamy pastas.
I also love Avocado Basil Pesto Pasta. It’s super quick to make this no-cook sauce. Avocado lovers will love this no-oil recipe!
