I love taking flat bread & rubbing it with olive oil, adding some fresh tomatoes & basil, topped with daiya mozzarella; popped under the broiler for a minute or two...tada....gourmet pizza!

For lunch it's a big salad. I just throw a lot of different stuff on it. For dinner, my no-brain go to meal is sautéed veggies with some kind of stir fry sauce. I keep a couple of different kinds of stir fry sauce in my fridge for those night when I don't feel like making my own sauce. It takes no effort to chop up a few veggies, give them a quick sautée or stir fry and throw in some sauce.

Definitely pasta & sauce. I always make my own sauce from canned diced tomatoes, but its still all in all a 20 minute, barely any prep, meal. And most everyone has pasta and tomatoes laying around.

Heating up a can of lentil soup. If it's actual "cooking" food, then pasta. I'm getting into making different pastas and pairing them with marinara sauce. I used to just have plain spaghetti, but now I've been changing it with penne and other types of different pasta. Somehow it tastes different and more interesting, even though it's the same sauce. It's also pretty easy to make, though I'm usually too impatient to eat to even do that much cooking

I basically just scout the salad dressing and marinade/sauce aisle at Whole Foods. My very favorite is Appalachian Naturals Ginger Miso sauce. I also like San-J's Thai Peanut Sauce and Curry Love Passion Red Thai Curry. Basically I just chop up a bunch of veggies, sautée them in a little water or a touch of olive oil. When the veggies are almost cooked, I'll throw in the greens at the end and add a little sauce and voilÃ*, it's dinner.

I've had one in a restaurant before, when I first went vegan, and I loved it, I couldn't believe it was actually vegetables because it tasted really good.
Yup, super easy. If I'm really hungry, I'll serve it up over brown rice, but most times I'm satisfied with just the veggies.

Yup, I do add tofu on occasion. I cook it separately. First, I press the tofu to get the water out. (I just put the block on some paper towels and put a cast iron pan on the top of it for 10 minutes or so.) Then I slice the tofu, heat up a pan, add some peanut oil, then add the tofu and cook until the outside crisps up a bit. At the very end, I'll add in some soy sauce. Then I throw it in with the stir fried veggies and sauce right before serving.

I love all these ideas. Mine is just an almond butter and jelly sandwich or an almond milk and banana smoothie.
