Healthy Vegan Salad Recipes. In the summer time, I am all about the salads. They are super easy to make and most require no cooking! I have put together a collection of healthy salad recipes from myself and also from around the web.
Have you tried cauliflower rice? It’s life changing! This Pineapple Cauliflower Fried Rice is so delicious and a great option for those that avoid grains. It really does mimic the texture of rice and it;s also super healthy. This meal whips up in no time at all.
The key to making cauliflower rice work well is to not go too heavy on the sauce. If you love cauliflower rice already, you may also like these other recipes below!
If you are looking a quick meal idea, this Easy Broccoli Stir Fry is it. I was inspired to make this recipe by my Thai Peanut Sauce recipe. I thought it would go really well with the broccoli since I sometimes put broccoli in my Peanut Noodle Stir Fry recipe.
I slightly tweaked the peanut sauce for this recipe. It came out pretty yummy!
I added peanuts for some crunch and extra protein. If you wanted, you can stretch this meal by serving it over rice or quinoa. As is, this Broccoli stir fry is vegan and gluten free.
It’s starting to warm up here in Dallas, so I am thinking about salads. Starting with this Simple Arugula Salad.
Marcus is OBSESSED with arugula. He ate this entire salad in one sitting. It’s that GOOD. I promise you will love it too.
This salad is filled with healthy ingredients and it has a lemon dressing that brightens it up even more. I also LOVE to add avocado to all my salads. Makes them extra delicious + you get the healthy fats to keep you full longer.
If you are trying to eat more veggies, you should try this Veggie Loaded Chickpea Stir Fry. It’s super easy and you can really use any veggies you have on hand. Just like vegetable broth, it’s a great way to use up leftover odds and ends in the fridge.
This is vegan and gluten free and grain free! For a paleo version, you can skip the chickpeas and serve over cauliflower rice.
I know I have been on quite the soup kick lately. This Chunky Vegetable Black Bean Soup will probably be my last one for a while. I just can’t help it. Soups are very healthy, filling and budget friendly! Also super easy.
This soup is packed with vegetables and the beans add protein, making this a complete meal. It will definitely keep you full for quite a while. This also makes a lot, so feel free to freeze some too.
