Over the past few years, popularity of the vegan lifestyle has risen, especially among college-age populations. Chief complaints in relation to making the switch to veganism, besides people being uncomfortable with the texture of tofu, often includes concerns over the cost related to a vegan diet.
Meatless meat and cheeseless cheese are often more expensive than their “normal” counterparts. However, a balanced and robust vegan diet doesn’t have to include any substitutes and there’s plenty of budget friendly options available.
Here are five of my favorite, go-to vegan recipes that will satiate a hungry appetite without draining the bank.
All of these recipes are less than $5 per serving.
Pasta and meatballs
A classic that always hits the spot, pasta and meatballs can fill up a hungry student for hours and it’s perfect for leftovers.
Mixed Veggie Salad
The trope that all vegans eat is salad and tree bark isn’t true, but this hearty, veggie-filled salad is sure to satisfy even the hungriest of meat eaters.
Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl and there you have an easy, healthy and
vegan friendly salad dressing.
B.M.C. Burrito (Beans, meat and cheese)
This hearty burrito is a great lunch or dinner option, quick to make and easy to take on the go.
Packed full of carbs, nutrients and protein, this breakfast scramble is a great jump starter to your morning.
A comfort-food classic, this vegan friendly chili is perfect to end a long day or to warm up with on a cold night.
