Im such a lazy cook and I need some simple and tasty ideas for vegan meals.
I also want to bring my own meal to my family Xmas lunch as they are all meat eaters
And always forget that I dont eat meat so I always go hungry.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

I also have an obsession with chili ha-ha!

me too! with Chilli that is - my nickname is Chilli Jilly! happy

. I love cooking. but i am also lazy ...i dont spend long in the kitchen (unless im making a vegan cheesecake)
* My fave things are like Couscous OR rice cooked in coconut milk & parsley and that can be served with anything like a salad.

Ummm...with salads i make them with baby spinach or mixed lettuces , cherry tomatos and chopped mushies, capsicum, olives etc. and throw through some Tempeh (soy product found near tofu) and Mustard or balsamic dressing on the salad is best!

Or you could do a pasta salad like with the grated carrot and mayo (alot are actually egg free).

Or if you wanted to - make a shepherds pie, lasagna or 'meat'balls. With vegie mince (i use sanitarium)

I made delicious nutmeat patties the other day - my sis loved them! Recipe on the side of the Sanitarium 'nutmeat' can.

And use Hoyts chilli flakes in everything like i do....or chilli & lime dressing. Or blend some chillis & tomato to make a chilli

Veggie burgers and falafel kababs are quick and easy to make and you can make them as healthy or as unhealthy as you want happy

-That does say vegetarian but there are some vegan recipes in there. Just google veggie burgers anyway and plenty will come up.

Vegan Dad's recipes rock!

I cheated a little with our dinner tonight. I bought a sachet of Maggi Devilled sausage base (dry), using Sanitarium BBQ sausages; serving it with mashed potato (adding a little sea salt, Melrose margarine and soy milk), and corn cobs.

I just sliced the snags and popped them in the pan for about two minutes after browning the onion and apple, and after letting it simmer for a little while, the sausages were soft and bloody delicious.

It's the perfect comfort food, and it's pretty darn quick to prepare. happy

Some of my favourite easy meals:

Scrambled Tofu:

Chickpea Curry:


Lentil Bolognaise:
1 can of lentils
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 onion
1 diced capsicum and carrot (optional)
1 grated optional(optional)
1 clove of garlic
1 beef stock cube (massel)
Mixed herbs

Fry veggies in olive oil, add the rest of the ingredients and then simmer until cooked.
Serve with your favourite pasta.

Veggie wraps
Fry some grated carrot, grated zucchini, diced onion, chopped capsicum and corn kernels and a clove of garlic in some olive oil until cooked. Transfer the veggies onto a tortilla and wrap it up. Then place it in the frying pan for a few minutes until browned on both sides.
Serve with tofutti sour cream or cream cheese.

For Christmas:

I second the felafel comment.  Nothing better than pre-made veggie burgers or felafels when you're feeling lazy.  A bit of gluten free pita bread, some salad and some homous and you're set.  Even the omni boyfriend loves it.
