3 Easy Vegetarian Meals

Picture this: it’s the middle of a snow day and it’s snowing too hard for you to even consider going outside. You’re starving and are about to order a burrito on Uber Eats. You’ve picked the ingredients, it’s in you cart, you’re about to pay, and- wait. Your order was canceled because of a severe weather warning. 😧

That was right before I decided to cook three vegetarian meals- breakfast, lunch, and, dinner.

All three meals require 5 or less ingredients to cook, and have a cooking time of 25 minutes or less.


BREAKFAST
Yogurt Bowl with Granola and Melon
🍉
Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup of Granola
  • 1 Cup of Vanilla Yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup of Chopped Melons
  • Optional- Add nuts like almond for an added crunch!
  • How do I make it?
  • Put everything together in a bowl. That’s it.
  • Cooking time- 10 minutes
  • Best part? Everything in this meal can be substituted with your favourite ingredients and it’ll still be delicious



  • LUNCH
    Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cous Cous
  • 🍚
    Ingredients:
  • 1 Cup of Cous Cous
  • 1 Cup of Brussels Sprouts
  • 1/2 of Chopped Onion
  • 1 Cup of cubed Tofu (medium-firm)
  • Garlic Butter, Salt
  • How do I make it?
  • Boil the Cous Cous in 2 cups of water in a pot (add a little garlic butter for an added flavour)
  • Heat up two table spoons of garlic butter in a pan on medium heat
  • Pan fry the chopped onions until golden brown
  • Add the Brussels sprouts and pan roast on medium heat
  • Add tofu cubes to the pan and pan roast together until slightly brown and firmer
  • Add salt to taste
  • Optional- Additional spices such as chilli flakes and garlic powder can be added
  • Service with Cous Cous
  • Cooking time: 25 minutes Pro tip: once again, you can substitute the tofu for any protein of your preference, or even additional veggies!



  • DINNER
    Angel Hair with Winter Veggies
  • 🥦 Ingredients:
  • 1 Cup of Angel Hair Pasta
  • 1/2 Cup of Chopped Broccoli
  • 1/2 Cup of Chopped Cauliflower
  • 1/2 Cup of Chopped Carrots
  • Olive oil, salt, garlic powder
  • How do I make it?
  • Boil the angel hair pasta for about 15 minutes on a medium to high flame
  • On a different burner, heat up 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Once oil is hot enough, add the broccoli, carrots and cauliflower and cook until golden brown
  • Add salt and garlic powder to taste
  • Drain pasta and add to pan with veggies
  • Add some more olive oil while heating on a low flame (this acts like a sauce)
  • Optional: add chilli flakes and oregano
  • Serve
  • Cooking time: 20 minutes Best part? Once again, anything in this pasta can be substituted or added. I added some snap beans and chilli flakes too!

  • All the meals were easy, fast, and relatively healthy. Try them out, maybe they’ll work for you too!
