Try these quick & delicious plant-based Summer meals for when it’s too hot to turn on the oven!
It’s hot, hot, hot and sometimes I just cannot be bothered to turn on the oven or stove! This girl’s a sweaty mess without the added heat. On days like these, I love to whip up refreshing and tasty plant-based meals that taste good AND make me feel good.
Try out my five FAVE summer meals!
100g store-bought falafel
2 tbsp hummus (I love beetroot variation)
½ cucumber, sliced
1 cup salad leaves
½ cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
½ avocado, peeled and sliced
Place salad leaves in the base of a bowl then top with cucumber, cherry tomatoes, avocado, and falafel.
Place dollops of hummus on top and stir through when serving to act as a dressing.
Marinated Tofu and Slaw
1 cup mixed slaw
¼ cup cashews
100g brown rice vermicelli noodles
1 cup firm tofu
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce (low sodium)
1 tbsp olive oil
In a bowl mix together the maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, and olive oil. Drain and pat dry tofu then cut into small cubes and place in maple mixture. Refrigerate for 1 hr to marinate.
Soak vermicelli noodles as package directs, then drain and place in a salad bowl with slaw and cashews. Toss to combine.
Pour over tofu with maple mixture, toss to distribute dressing, and enjoy.
Vegan Caprese Salad
2 whole tomato
¼ cup firmly packed basil leaves
½ cup firm tofu
1 tbsp olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste
Slice tomato into rounds and set aside.
Drain tofu and pat dry with a paper towel. Slice thinly into rounds and place on a plate layering with the tomato. Season generously with salt and pepper.
Place basil on top of tofu and tomatoes then mix together balsamic vinegar and olive oil and drizzle over salad. Enjoy!
