One big myth I want to debunk is that being vegan is difficult. I often get asked if I find it really hard to think of vegan meals because ‘a vegan diet is so restricted’. On top of that people seem to think that vegan recipes require lots of intricate steps with never before heard ingredients. Neither are true. In today’s world veganism has never been so accessible and eating a plant-based diet has never been easier.
To help prove that veganism is easy here at Veggie Vagabonds we’ve compiled the ultimate collection of super easy vegan recipes. From smaller bites that are super simple to prepare, to hearty mains that will be sure to fill your boots. Many of these recipes require less than 10 ingredients and are free from any complicated methodical intricacies.
