This vegan lasagna makes use of a bunch of fresh summer ingredients. It takes a bit of prep, but all of the steps are easy and the end result is oh-so satisfying. Vegetarians beware—this lasagna will make you rethink the notion that you “can’t live without cheese.”
Tofu ricotta cheese is one of the laziest vegan throw-togethers ever, and you probably have all of the ingredients on hand. (Quick! Make it before that block of tofu in the fridge turns!) For something so easy, it adds awesomeness to many dishes, including stuffed shells, lasagna, and especially pizza.
What could be better than spinach-filled dough? Spinach parathas, spinach calzones, spanakopita… These fatayer bi sabanekh continue a delicious tradition of not-too-adulterated spinach stuffed into carbohydrate goodness.
Quick, easy, and delicious, I challenge you to find something savoury that isn’t made better by pink pickled onions.
Guacamole: my favourite way to eat more fat. (Yes, even more favourite than cashews, if you can believe it.)
Hearty and stupidly easy to make, this chicken and dumpling soup is best after long, cold days when there are lots of hungry mouths to feed.
Tapenade is a lovely Provençal dish. Traditionally, it includes anchovies, but this vegan version keeps it simple with olives, capers, and other flavourful ingredients. It’s still briny and delicious, it looks beautiful, and it’s easy to serve up with crackers or bread.
This black bean salad packs a lovely one-two punch of creaminess and smokiness with its dressing. The slight Mexican flair is perfect for lazy summer evenings when there’s too much outdoors to be spending an evening slaving over the stove.
