On your journey of becoming vegan, it’ll take time for you can work out what your go-to meals are.
To make sure that you don’t starve, we thought it’d be quite useful to help you on your journey and offer some recipes that are built with the spice-partial in mind.
Breakfast – Scrambled tofu with hot sauce
This dish is simple, quick, and delicious – and only requires a few ingredients.
- Mushrooms/ Spinach/ Tomato/ or any other vegetable
- Peri Peri Lemon and Herb sauce
All you need to do is cook off your selection of vegetables – how many or how few you want is up to you, toast your bread, and then take a fork and mash up your tofu until it resembles a scrambled egg. After that, fry off your tofu and build your breakfast. Once done, layer on the hot sauce until you’re satisfied.
Lunch – Vegan tacos
Another simple dish for those who are just beginning to explore the vegan world.
For vegan tacos, you’ll only need a few things:
- Tortilla shells
- Black beans (or a vegan meat alternative)
- Vegetables (lettuce, tomato, avocado, peppers)
- Chilli flakes
- Chipotle sauce
This dish is ideal for those who want a varying degree of spice in their meal. With tacos, you’re able to add as much chilli or hot sauce as you want, without affecting the meal of another person; however, we always think the more the merrier. For this dish, you’ll need to heat up your tortillas, and then in a pan heat up your black beans (or vegan meat substitute). After they both have reached the right temperature, you’ll want to fill your taco with lettuce, chopped tomato, chunks of avocado – any vegetable you enjoy, really. Then just sprinkle a dash of chilli on it, douse on the sauce, and enjoy! An easy vegan dish with minimum hassle, but maximum taste.
Dinner – Vegan curry with dip
Making a curry vegan is fairly self-explanatory as there are plenty of recipes out there that use a wide variety of vegetables in the basis of the dish – but this is one of our favourites.
If you’re after the spice from a Jalfrazi, you’ll need to grab a few things:
- Vegetables (whether that’s pumpkin, potato, or even, a replacement meat)
- Curry Powder
- Tomato paste
- And the most important ingredient, chilli powder
First, you’ll want to cook your rice in some boiling water for 20 minutes (or until soft and fluffy). Next, you’ll want to cook of your vegetables (these times may vary depending on which you choose), before the vegetables are completely cooked, you’ll want to add in your paste, some water, the curry powder, and your spices. Mix it all together and voila! A delicious and spicy meal. And for those of you who are all about the frills, don’t forget your poppadoms (don’t worry, the majority of them are made from legumes) and tamarind and mango sauce to add a little spice.
There you have it! Three healthy, spicy, and vegan meals for you to enjoy with ease.
