Updated: 5 days ago

Adopting a more plant-forward style of eating can certainly feel overwhelming at first, whether you’re making the jump solo or guiding the entire family towards more sustainable living habits. In addition to being delicious, a plant-based diet offers numerous health, economic and environmental benefits, certainly making it worth trying out! Our best advice? Start simple!


Here is a round up of 5 of our favourite vegan meals ideas. They’re all made with 5 ingredients or less and take just a few minutes to make:


1. 4 Ingredient Blender Pancakes

Diner style and dairy-free! We love how this recipe uses mashed banana to add some all-natural sweetness.


2. Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Beans, peas and lentils are nutrition-packed and a very affordable way to get started in plant-based cooking! This chickpea salad is quick to put together and can also be made in advance.


3. Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Tortilla Roll-Ups

Pro tip: try this recipe by swapping in our Sun Dried Tomato and Basil Cashew Cheese and Sun Dried Tomato Pesto (dairy free and made with fresh herbs that we grow in-house in our living wall!)


4. The Pretty Pear Panino Sandwich

Oh so yum! This recipe is courtesy of chef Melanie Boudens (IG: @melanieboudens), one of our very own talented Zenbassadors!



5. Peanut Butter Berry & Quinoa Smoothie

Suitable for breakfast or as a snack! 5 simple, but nutritionally balanced ingredients come together to make this fuss-free and satisfying smoothie.
