Lazy vegan Recipe: Broccoli and Cannellini Bean Satay Stir Fry

Happy Friday lazy green people! We made it through the week! 🙂

I’ve decided to switch my lazy vegan recipes from Meatless Monday to Frisky Friday, so it coincides with a) when we need a quick and easy recipe the most and b) when my weekly veg box has been delivered so I can incorporate what’s in season for the week!

This week’s veg box had a LOT of broccoli and carrots which are two of my most favorite ingredients for a quick and easy stir fry. But I have been trying to cut down my intake of soy, so I thought I would mix it up, using Cannellini beans for my protein fix instead of Tofu. The results were so hearty, yet fresh and zingy I just had to share!

Lazy Vegan Recipe: Seasonal Veg Risotto

It’s Monday again already? I’m pretty sure last time I blinked it was Friday evening and I was ready for a relaxing weekend! But one good thing about Mondays is that I get to talk about food, and share one of my lazy vegan recipes, so it’s not all that bad!

While eating out yesterday in a popular Italian restaurant (mentioning no names…) I noticed that, while vegetarian options are now widely available, cheese seems to be the star of the show in almost every dish. But as a vegan – who used to be a massive cheese fiend – I now see that this very fattening flavour enhancer can easily be swapped for garlic, chilli oil or fresh herbs; leaving the dish just as flavoursome (and  WAY healthier).

Lazy vegan Recipe: Seasonal Asparagus & Pistachio Salad

As this week marks the end of the short asparagus season, I thought it only right to make the delicious vegetable the star of this week’s meat free Monday recipe.  And with all this glorious sunshine bringing the UK some much needed heat, I’d say we’ve stepped into salad season!

This salad is super quick to knock up and is jam packed with all the nutrients you need to add a summer spring to your step!
