Perusing social media and saving delicious-looking food photos is a nice way to pass the time for many of us, despite the recipes’ level of difficulty. Have you ever read a recipe, thought it looked pretty good, but knew you would probably never realistically embark on that cooking project? Not all meals need several cooking utensils, power tools, fire, and lots of time. Check out these 10 foolproof vegan dishes for kitchen klutzes:
1. Avocado and Hummus Wrap
If you’re a klutz in the kitchen, you can appreciate the art of making a meal without turning on the stove or baking a single thing. Put some hummus, avocado, and veggies on a wrap, roll it up, and there’s lunch.
2. Mushroom Mutter Masala
For this dish, you cook and stir everything in one pan, so the process takes minimal energy and mental effort.
3. Pasta with Vodka Sauce
Aside from dangerously unwrapping a frozen meal and popping it in the microwave, you can’t get much easier than pasta. Buy a package of whole wheat pasta or gluten-free pasta, as well as a jar of organic tomato sauce, and bam: instameal. You can upgrade that jar of marinara by using it to make this simple vegan vodka cream sauce.
4. Raw Vegan Banana Hemp Seed Sushi Slices
This fun, sushi-inspired power snack is very easy to make and involves unwrapping a banana, smothering it in peanut butter, then rolling it in hemp seeds. Cut it into pieces, and you’re done.
5. Vegan Chick’n Salad With Cranberries and Pistachios
The most difficult part about this recipe is soaking the soy curls in water for 10 minutes and then squeezing all of the water out. The rest is a simple dump and stir technique.
6. Simple Lentil Dal
With this simple lentil dal, you gradually add items to a pot over the stove. Once the items are added, you let it cook for 20 – 30 minutes.
7. Vegan Humdinger
This sandwich is a delicious, simple meal that requires little prep and zero cooking time. This vegan version is rocking with carrot, cucumber, avocado, and alfalfa sprouts.
8. Raw Green Pea Soup
What’s great about making raw dishes is that there’s no cooking required and it often means you simply mix ingredients, blend, then eat. With this soup, all you need are peas, avocado, almond milk, onion, salt, and pepper.
9. Slow Cooker Vegan Coconut Banana Pecan Coffee Cake Oatmeal
Using a slow cooker is a great idea for those who don’t like to move around the kitchen with knives and gadgets, measuring and counting, and dividing their attention among several pressing issues. With a slow cooker, you throw everything inside, forget about it for several hours, then in the morning, you’ve got a fragrant, comforting, slow-cooked oatmeal.
10. Acai Berry Vegan Ice Cream
Make this ice cream and harness the power of acai berry, which is bursting with antioxidants. All you need to do is mix five ingredients in a blender until smooth.
