Easy + Healthy Vegan Dinner Ideas

These dinner ideas have a mix of Asian and Italian cuisine. Cheesy and filling, quesadillas filled with mashed potatoes are great for snack time. Leftover rice can be transformed into a vegan fried rice recipe full of crunchy tofu and mixed vegetables. So easy to make that it is perfect when you really don’t feel like cooking. Lastly, the pasta recipe is light and creamy but packed with leafy greens.

These recipes take about 10 to 15 minutes to make. Serves 1 to 2.
