Vegetables are a good place to start

From simple sauteed greens to a vibrant salad, vegetables are low-fat and high in nutrients. Vegetables come in so many varieties and colors that you can easily find one to suit any taste preference.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to get more veggies into your diet, try roasting them for dinner! Roasting is a great way to bring out the natural flavors of the veggies, plus it’s super easy - just toss some with oil and salt then roast 'til tender. You can add other ingredients like nutritional yeast or paprika for extra flavor too.

Cooking with spices

Incorporating spices in your cooking can help you make vegan dishes taste better. Spices give dishes a unique flavor profile, which is why they are often used as a way to add zest to meals. If your recipe calls for salt, try using something like smoked paprika or chipotle powder instead. These spices will not only enhance the flavor of your dish, but they’ll also provide dietary benefits too!

Vegan protein sources

There are many sources of protein that can be used in plant-based recipes. Some of these sources are soy, beans, seitan, mushrooms, and quinoa.  With these options for vegan protein sources, you’ll never have to worry about running low on energy or getting enough protein from your diet. Not to mention that with so many different vegan protein sources to choose from, you’ll never get bored with the same old dishes!  Plus, they can all be used interchangeably. For example, you could use beans as a source of vegan protein in one dish and then reseason them for a completely different dish later on. So if you run out of ideas or want to spice up your life with new flavors and dishes, try out some plant-based vegan recipes!

Vegan baking

When people think of eating vegan, they tend to think that all the food is baked. But this is not true! You can make delicious meatless dishes like lasagna, chili, and spaghetti bolognese.
With a little creativity and some delicious recipes, it’s easy to enjoy plant-based dishes.
