  • One tablespoon of avocado oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped carrot
  • 1 cup chopped white fingerling potato
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (+ more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (+ more to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric

2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup green or brown lentils
1 cup red lentils
4 cups vegetable broth
2 cups water
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 cup almond milk (or coconut milk depending on your preference)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 – 3 cups spinach


  • Heat the oil in a large stockpot or dutch oven. Then, add onions, celery, carrot, potato and garlic and saute for about 5 minutes until everything softens slightly. Next, season with salt, pepper, and spices and cook for about 2 minutes.
  • Next, add lentils and saute for 1 – 2 minutes, then add the broth, water, and tomato paste. Stir to combine and until the tomato paste has dissolved. Bring the soup to a boil, cover, and reduce to simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Afterward, remove from heat and stir in almond milk, lemon juice, and spinach, and stir until the spinach has wilted. Serve immediately and top with your desired toppings.
  • For garnishes, I like to do a dollop of coconut yogurt, some fresh parsley, pepper flakes, cracked pepper, and jalapeno slices. A little spicy, a little creamy and so good!

Simple Healthy Vegan Meals - Vegan Tuna Salad

Vegan Tuna Salad

Vegan Tuna Salad is an easy gluten-free, healthy lunch. A vegetarian alternative to real tuna, and tastes like the classic version but fish free! Moreover, this can be made in just 10 minutes. Perfection in a sandwich, wrapped with crackers, on lettuce, or grilled as a tuna melt!



  1. To the food processor, add chickpeas and hearts of palm. Pulse until mixed but not mushy, leave a little texture. Scrape down sides as needed
  2. With a spatula add the mixture into the mixing bowl, crumble in the seaweed sheets and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix until combined. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Chill in the fridge or serve right away.
  3. Enjoy! Lovely in a sandwich, wrap, with crackers, or on a bed of lettuce. I love it with a side of potato chips!

Simple Healthy Vegan Meals - Stir Fried Bok Choy

Stir-Fried Bok Choy

Stir-fried Bok Choy really makes an invitation to experiment in the kitchen. Also, it’s especially good with earthy mushrooms! Thoroughly drying the bok choy before cooking ensures that you don’t end up with a watery sauce. Nonetheless, would you look at that image, doesn’t it scream “vegan” to you?


  • 1 pound baby bok choy
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 5 ounces small fresh mushrooms, such as shiitake, button, beech, or enoki (cut into clumps), rinsed, tough parts of stems trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons Shaoxing rice wine* or dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • ⅛ teaspoon each kosher salt and pepper


  1. Trim bases of bok choy and separate outer leaves from stalks, leaving the smallest inner leaves attached. Rinse and thoroughly dry the bok choy in a salad spinner.
  2. Next, heat a wok or large frying pan (not nonstick) over medium-high heat until hot when you wave your hand over the bottom. Then, add vegetable oil, garlic, and ginger and stir once; then immediately add mushrooms and stir-fry until they just begin to brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Add rice wine and cook for 30 seconds. Then, add bok choy leaves and stalks and cook, tossing with tongs, until beginning to wilt, about 1 minute. The wok may seem crowded, but the leaves wilt quite a bit.
  4. Add soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and pepper; cook, tossing often, until bok choy is tender-crisp, another 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.

Simple Healthy Vegan Meals - Veggie Crudité

Veggie Crudité

This is what a vegan platter should look like! This party platter is loaded with your handpicked vegetables and Mediterranean favorites. Nothing like a vegan’s paradise on a single serving! Moreover, for something so basic, a vegetable crudité platter can be the show-stopping star of your next party. Also, this is one of those easy vegan meals on a budget!


Preparing your veggies

  • Choose your veggies.
  • Rinse them well under running water and peel/trim/remove seeds, if needed. (However, you might as well include them because seeds are healthy!)
  • Cut them into strips or small pieces.

Assembling the platter

  • Decide where you will put all the veggies. You can use anything: a large serving tray, plate(s) or deep baking tray. A large cheese board would also work great for a crudité board.
  • Choose small bowls for your dips and place them inside the tray/plate. You can fill them later, but make sure to leave them there. They will serve as a guide so you can see how much space you are working with.
