Quick, easy and delicious

VeganMofo15corn

Today’s Vegan MoFo prompt is quick, easy and delicious and it has made me think of my Wednesday night meals.

Most weeks on a Wednesday I go to my running club. I have a lot of fun either leading or sweeping the bridging group. Depending where we are in the cycle of Start to Run we can run anything between 3 to 6 miles and finish between 8.30 and 9pm. Which means most of the time I don’t get home until 9.30 and, as I can’t eat before running, I am rather hungry by the time I arrive home.

All I want is something quick and easy, delicious is a bonus!

Most evenings it will be baked beans on toast. Quick and easy, yes, tasty, yes, but not something I would describe as delicious!

Other nights it will be a sausage sandwich. If I have time I’ll fry up some onions for it but usually a decent spread of mustard or horseradish on the bread is enough.

Very occasionally, if we’ve done a 3 mile route and I get home early, I’ll make a quick pasta dish with olives, pesto, sundried tomatoes and capers.

My Wednesday dinners are always quick and easy, but I think I really need to work on the delicious part!

What are your favourite quick and easy vegan dishes? Any suggestions for a quick post-run meal for me?

    • Oh that’s a good idea. You’ve just made me remember that I have a rather quick chickpea and tomato dish that is really easy to make. I’ll have to remember it for next Wednesday!

  1. What about toasted pumpernickel with marmite, avocado and tomato? Or couscous salad withbeans and a spicy dressing? The couscous can be soaking while you make the rest. For cold nights if you have a pressure cooker you can rustle up a bean and veg stew or soup in about 5 minutes once you’ve prepped the veg- just chuck everything in and bring to pressure for 5 minutes or so, using pre cooked beans. Hope this helps! Personally I like the sound of your sausage sandwich!

    • I do like a bit of toast with marmite and avocado! And the couscous is another thing that would be easy for me to make. I always think of couscous salad as a lunch rather than a dinner so maybe I need to think of more ‘lunchtime’ dishes.
      I don’t have a pressure cooker unfortunately. Do you cook a lot with it? I know you can cook dried beans in a fraction of the time it takes on the hob but hadn’t really thought about other things you can cook with one.
