Easy Vegan Spring Recipes (for lunch or dinner)

Easy vegan spring recipes for a whole food plant based diet. High protein dinner recipes that can also be used for lunch. These vegan recipes make great weight loss meals, too, and are budget friendly.

Vegan or not, plant based vegan spring recipes make super healthy lunch and dinner meals. They will fuel your body with fiber, protein, minerals, and vitamins to gain energy.

A plant based diet can be very frugal and you can find lots of budget friendly recipes. If you are not a vegan, it is still a good idea to add some plant based recipes to your diet to detox your body, heal your stomach, balance hormones, and save money on groceries.

Seasonal Spring Vegetables

Buying seasonal produce will help the environment and your wallet. Here is the list of spring vegetables that become seasonal in March:

Artichokes, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, leeks, lettuce, mushrooms, parsnips, pineapples, radishes, rutabagas, and turnips. In April you can add spring peas and asparagus to the list and for May apricots, cherries, mangoes, strawberries, swiss chard, and zucchini. (Source: thebalance.com).

A great way to use these seasonal fruits and vegetables for your meals is to mix them into a big salad bowl and add one of these vegan salad dressings.

Another great way is to steam the vegetables and season. Then add them to sweet potatoes or brown rice. Never forget to add a plant based source of protein like beans, lentils, seeds, or nuts.

Whole Food Plant Based Diet

Some people are worried about the protein intake on a vegan diet, therefore I created this list of vegan spring recipes that include sources of protein to ensure you get the nutrition you need for your lunch or dinner.

I like to prepare the amount of food for each recipe to serve dinner the same night and lunch the next day. This is an easy trick to save some time with meal prep.

The good part about a whole food plant based diet (mostly low fat) is that you don’t have to worry about counting calories and will still be able to lose weight. Another benefit of a whole food vegan diet is the inner healing of the body for many diseases.

Carbs, therefore, will actually help you with weight loss as long as you pick complex carbs like sweet potatoes, brown rice, and whole wheat.
