Starting with a delicious and healthy plant-based meal is a fantastic way to nourish your body and start your day off right. Today, we’re sharing two of our favorite recipes that are sure to tickle your taste buds and keep you feeling full and satisfied all day long.
First up, we have a fantastic Vegetable Lasagna recipe that is perfect for busy weeknights when you don’t have time to cook from scratch. This recipe uses Stouffer’s Vegetable Lasagna meal as a base and adds in some extra vegetables for a more filling meal.
To make this recipe, start by preheating your oven to 375°F. Then, take your Stouffer’s Vegetable Lasagna meal out of the freezer and let it thaw for 10-15 minutes. While it’s thawing, chop up some fresh vegetables – we like using zucchini, bell peppers, and mushrooms – and sauté them in a bit of olive oil until they’re soft and tender.
Once your lasagna is thawed out, transfer it to an oven-safe dish and top with your sautéed vegetables. Then, pop it in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the edges are slightly browned.
When your lasagna is done, take it out of the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Then, serve it up with a side salad or a slice of garlic bread for a complete meal that is sure to satisfy your hunger and keep you full for hours.
Our second recipe is a fantastic Plant-Based Kitchen and Pantry tutorial that will help you stock your kitchen with all of the essential ingredients you need to whip up healthy meals in no time.
To get started, head to your local grocery store and pick up some fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains like quinoa and brown rice, and a variety of nuts, seeds, and legumes. These ingredients are the basis of a healthy plant-based diet and will give you all of the vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber you need to thrive.
Once you have your ingredients, start by prepping your vegetables – wash and chop them ahead of time so they’re ready to go when you’re ready to start cooking. Then, cook your grains and legumes in large batches and store them in the fridge or freezer for easy meal prep throughout the week.
When it’s time to cook, get creative with your ingredients and experiment with different flavor combinations to keep your meals interesting and exciting. Try making a stir-fry with your favorite vegetables and tofu, or roasting a medley of veggies with some chickpeas for a hearty and delicious meal.
No matter what you’re in the mood for, a well-stocked plant-based kitchen and pantry will give you all of the tools you need to create healthy and delicious meals that will nourish your body and fuel your day.
