No matter if you’re usually a passionate cook or haven’t been a hobby chef at all thus far, we could all need a couple of go-to lazy vegan recipes when it’s just one of these days.

Truth be told, even though we’re running a food blog, most days our dinner resembles the following dishes much more than elaborate 1-hour recipes that constantly need to be watched.

We love plant-based Instant Pot dinners, delicious vegan sandwiches for lunch and easy plant-based breakfast ideas in the morning! 

It’s really a misconception to think that following a vegan diet is more expensive and requires a lot of time and effort spent in the kitchen!

It just comes down to how often you want to eat out, how used to preparing your own meals you already are and how fancy you want your food to be.

The following list exemplifies how you can put together filling salads, pizzas, batch cooking-friendly soups and comforting one-pot wonders with very little preparation time, a small budget and everyday ingredients!
