Ever wish take out and frozen pizza was actually good for you? Because then you could take a break instead of cooking after a busy day.
I’ve definitely been there.
Too bad that wish is about as close to getting fulfilled as my childhood dreams of finding a unicorn under the Christmas tree.
From the emails you’ve been sending me, it’s clear that whipping together something healthy on a busy weeknight is one of the biggest challenges for many of you. And I hear you, it seems really hard. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are 20 mouthwatering recipes for healthy vegan dinners that take just 15 minutes from fridge to table. Yup, that’s about as fast as making that frozen pizza ;)
Pasta, Pasta and more Pasta
Pasta of all kinds takes center stage in this collection of healthy vegan dinners. It is definitely the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of quick meals. Be it mac and cheese, zoodles, Alfredo or Thai noodles, you’ll love them all.
