Combine a few prepper skills with a plan-ahead mentality to stave off stress in the kitchen and still manage to prepare delicious plant-based dishes.

By Vicki Martinez

Plant-based recipes don’t have to be complex cooking projects with a long list of ingredients. They can be simple, yet tasty. Here are a few tips and tricks to help plan healthy plant-based meals, along with some of our favorite vegan recipes that take 30 minutes or less to prepare.

Stock Up on Staples

There’s no better way to master preparedness than having a well-stocked pantry filled with items that are commonly used when cooking meals without meat.

Keep a supply of potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, garlic and squash on hand. These stay fresh longer than other produce if stored in a cool, dry, dark place.

Don’t forget to visit the frozen foods section when staple shopping. Frozen veggies are pre-cut, can be steamed in minutes, and have the same nutritional value as their fresh counterparts

Top Tip: To guarantee necessary supplies are there when you need them, add items to your shopping list when you’re running low, rather than waiting until you use the last can, bag or carton.

Vie for Versatility

Fill your shopping list with foods that work in a variety of plant-based recipes. Ingredients like spinach and kale are wonderful in a salad, sautéed, or added to soups and casseroles.

Cauliflower is another vegetable that has multiple uses: steamed, roasted, riced, and used to make pizza crust.

Create protein-packed meals without meat by adding tofu. The hearty ingredient stands up well to various cooking techniques.

Many of the best vegan recipes call for a vegan fat of some type. Don’t worry about sacrificing on taste when using vegan butter. You’ll find that vegan butters are just as delicious, or perhaps even more delicious, than butter. Keep products on hand like Pure Blends™ plant-based butters that can be used in solid form as a spread or in liquid form when melted.
