Lazy & Light Spring Recipes (Vegan!)

Since the weather is slowly getting warmer, I created THREE delicious and easy spring recipes! Check out the video below and don’t forget to scroll down for the written recipes~

It’s time for some vegan spring recipes! Now that we’re way past winter and the weather is already getting a little warmer, I thought I would make some recipes that are light but refreshing, while still being delicious and easy to make!

So for this video, I created THREE yummy recipes, and here’s a little introduction to each of them. 

No Bake Brownie Bites

These are very simple 5-ingredient chocolate balls! The healthy fats included in these, tahini & walnuts, will make these more filling and give you energy! 

Eat it right after making (they are so good!), or store in the fridge first, or you can probably even flatten these and bake them to make cookies – but there’s no need to bake them! So yummy, so sweet, so simple to make! 

One Pan Warm Wild Rice & Mushroom Salad

This savoury recipe is a delicious, healthy mixture of mushrooms, wild rice, and garlic. If you don’t know what wild rice is, it is actually a type of aquatic grass regarded either as a grain or a vegetable (depending on location) and is said to be really nutritious. 

To add the flavour to this dish, I made a delicious tahini-lemon dressing which was so good.  Highly recommended!

Creamy Pasta Salad

This creamy pasta dish is probably one of the easiest pasta salad recipes that I made, with the main ingredient for the sauce being cashews. The sauce is actually the same as my 4-ingredient cashew alfredo sauce! Turns out this sauce tastes great in a cold pasta salad as well.

The only hardest part about this recipe is probably waiting for the cashews to boil because you’ll want them soft enough to be blended into a nice, creamy sauce. Made with a yummy medley of spiral pasta, red cabbage, and edamame, this pasta is perfect if you’re looking for a refreshing pasta dish!

Don’t these recipes sound perfect for spring? Don’t forget to watch the video if you want to see me make these dishes and head over to the written recipes below!

  3. Throw in chopped walnuts (optional) and mix.

  4. While the mushrooms & wild rice are cooking, make the dressing by mixing all the dressing ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Set aside.
