If you haven’t noticed, veganism is trending right now. And whether it’s to save the environment or the animals, there’s good reason for it. But even if you’re not fully vegan, incorporating vegan meals into your life doesn’t hurt. Here are five easy vegan dinners, each with five ingredients or less(besides olive oil and salt & pepper, because if you don’t already have those you shouldn’t be cooking anyway).
Tortillas + Beans + Peppers + Mushrooms + Avocado. Just saute the peppers and mushrooms over heat and add to tortilla along with beans and avocado. 5 Ingredients away from a fiesta in your mouth. With a slight twist, you can also make vegan tacos.
