Since we have decided to adapt to a mostly Vegan diet I am finding that it has become easier and easier to find very simple and quick recipes. For years I have equated Veganism as something that is expensive, inconvenient and difficult (let alone uninspiring and unsatisfying.) As we eat more healthy we have found it quite easy to find Vegan dishes that require little effort.
I find most of my inspirations for our Vegan Monday meals from Pinterest. Pinterest has allowed me to see how simple it can really be to eat a mostly plant based diet. Sure Veggie sandwiches are always a quick go-to dish for healthy meal but sometimes it can get mundane and boring.
This is an incredible 3-ingredient recipe for Chickpea Mash. It was ready in seconds and it filled both Chad and I up for a healthy and satisfying dinner. As the weeks go by I am thinking why I ever thought eating Vegan was so difficult!
Cut the avocados in half and remove the pits. Scoop out the avocado flesh and add to the bowl of chickpeas.
Begin to mash the avocado into the chickpeas, again leaving slightly chunky.
Add the lemon juice and mix into the chickpea mixture using a spoon.
Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate. Serve as a spread on sandwiches or as a dip with pita chips and veggies.
I ended up building sandwiches. I lightly toasted some Vegan bread and generously spread the chickpea mash onto the bottom bread. I then layered radishes, tomatoes, onion slices and sprouts on top of the mash.
I served the sandwiches alongside a small salad though I suppose a cup of canned Vegan Lentil soup would have been just as easy and delicious!
The next day we used the chickpea mash as a dip for fresh cut veggies and pita chips.
I am loving these new recipes, especially the ones we have been making lately that have been so quick and easy. How are you doing with your Vegan Monday recipes? Share your ideas in the comments below!
