Quick, frugal and easy vegan meals

green blog vegan meal ideasOne of my friends was considering a vegan detox for a while.

She’d been on a conference to empower herself and felt a healthy diet would support her healthy mind.

She asked for suggestions for quick, simple and frugal ideas.

I’ve been eating a vegan diet for about five days now, but need it to be nut and seed free, so here are some of suggestions; along with suggestions from a forum I’m on.

We’re looking for healthy meals that avoid ‘faux’ foods such as meat substitutes.

Quick, frugal and simple vegan meal ideas


  • fruit with soya yoghurt
  • Smoothie – I make mine with soya milk, raspberries, blueberries and apple and a handful of alfalfa


  • Veggie sticks and hummous
  • Mashed avocado and sliced beetroot on rye toast
  • Green vegetable soup
  • chickpea and tomato soup
  • Salad with olives and avocado
  • Jacket potato and various toppings – guacamole, hummous, fried mushrooms, home made baked beans etc


  • Falafel and mixed vegetables
  • Dahl and wholemeal rice
  • Home made tomato sauce and pasta
  • quinoa, asparagus, leek and mint
  • Stirfry with tinned beans such as chickpeas or black eyed beans
  • vegetable chilli with kidney beans
  • Chunky vegetable curry
  • Shepherds pie made with red lentils
  • Sweet and sour tofu
  • Ratatouille

What about you? I know I’ve only scratched the surface and I’d love to hear your recommendations; especially for those who can’t tuck into nuts and seeds.
