vegan summer recipes banner

So it's finally here...SUMMER!! I don't even know where to begin to tell you how much I love summer. Heat, beach, cute dresses, outdoor activities, vibrant salads, light meals and this list could go on and on and on. You see, I love summer.

I don't really like having heavy meals during the summer time so I put together these 4 light vegan summer recipes // lunch & snack ideas.

All these recipes are vegan and really easy and quick to make (under 30 minutes). They also require only a few ingredients, so they are really budget friendly.




Gnocchi with Spinach and


So this is probably my favorite dish of all 4. I love gnocchis in general but the combination of gnocchi, spinach, and tomatoes is soo good.

The sundried tomatoes really make the dish. Trust me, give it a try. 


Cut your onion, carrots and sundried tomatoes and add them to a frying pan with a bit of olive oil. After a few minutes add your sliced tomatoes. Let that simmer for a few minutes. Add your gnocchis. When the dish is almost done add your baby spinach and let it simmer for two more minutes.



Avocado, Spinach & Chickpea Sandwich


This sandwich is perfect to take to school or work. It doesn't require a lot of preparation but it's a little fancier than just a normal plain sandwich. and the best you get your greens in. 


Toast your bread. Put your chickpeas and avocado into a bowl and smash them till you get a smooth paste. Spread your chickpea avocado paste onto your bread. Add the spinach on top. Enjoy!


Creamy Avocado Pasta

So this dish is so quick to make and you get a full on meal in such a short amount of time. And I mean it's pasta .... who doesn't love pasta, right?! I sometimes get a little bored of pesto so it's nice to switch it up a little.

Start cooking your pasta. Meanwhile, prepare your creamy avocado sauce. Add your avocado, basil, olive oil and lemon juice to a food processor or mixer and mix till you get a smooth texture. when your pasta is cooked add your sauce and DONE! 


Black beans, Spinach & Avocado Quesadilla


This might not be the most aesthetic looking dish but believe me, it's so yummy. 

Spread your avocado onto your tortilla. Put your black beans into a bowl and smash them till you have a nice paste. Add the paste the sliced tomatoes and the vegan cheese on top of the avocado paste and put another tortilla on top. Put it in a pan and cook each site for 5 minutes.
