Usually I start the new year with smoothies and salads and other super healthy meal ideas. But it’s currently -25 in Toronto and all I want to do is curl up in bed with something warm and filling.
So instead, here are a bunch of my coziest, heartiest, favourite vegan dinner ideas, so you can start the year off the right way, but also warm up from the tundra outside!
I am still so obsessed with these! Make-ahead, homemade instant noodles that are high in protein, packed with flavour, and so good for you.
I make this soup a few times a month. You can use whatever veggies you have hanging around your fridge, and it makes such a huge batch that you can freeze some for lunch next week or next month. I usually add two cans of white beans into the soup – when you blend it you can’t taste them, but it adds a nice amount of protein.
These Macedonian baked beans are perfect for winter – hearty, spicy, super filling.
This lasagna is so much better than your typical lasagne. Thinly sliced eggplant replaces noodles, and instead of ricotta, there’s a protein-packed tofu version. So good you won’t even miss the regular version!
Your breakfast needs to be warming and healthy too! This oatmeal is my favourite right now – so filling and delicious, and keeps me warm all morning.
Stay warm out there folks!
