5 Vegan Dishes Perfect for Spring!

Today is the first day of spring, and given the winter most of the US has just had, you’re probably as ready for it as I am. In honor of the vernal equinox, I give you Five Vegan Dishes that are Perfect for Spring!

Vegan Asian Spinach Salad

Asian Spinach Salad: If that picture alone doesn’t get you ready for warmer weather, then think about this: Crisp water chestnuts, sweet mandarin oranges, and crunchy bean sprouts. Added bonus? It’s fairly quick to make. Get outside for a walk after work, and you’ll still have time to throw this together for dinner!

Vegan Caprese Quesadillas

Caprese Quesadillas: Even if it’s still too cold where you are to fire up the grill, you can prepare these on the stove top and enjoy that light, sweet combination of tomatoes and basil. And cheese. Did I mention there’s cheese in there? Cheese.

Vegan Hummus & Veggie Melts

Hummus n’ Veggie Melts: Some of us <looks in mirror, sticks out tongue> spent the winter enjoying our favorite comfort foods. There’s nothing wrong with that, but with warmer weather comes the desire to lighten it up a little bit. These melts are light, healthy and delicious. And easy, so easy!

Vegan Tofu Buffalo Spring Rolls

Tofu Buffalo Spring Rolls

Buffalo Tofu Spring Rolls: No, these didn’t make the list just because they have spring in their name! These rolls embody everything that spring cooking stands for – They’re light, they’re fun, and if the weather is cooperating, you can cook them outside!

Vegan Lemony Couscous & Asparagus Salad

Lemony Couscous & Asparagus Salad: I know I just posted this dish a couple weeks ago, but its perfect for this round-up! Asparagus and sweet cherry tomatoes are what spring is all about. This makes a lovely side dish, and the leftovers are perfect for lunch the next day!

    It’s currently 11.52am as I’m reading this and my belly is saying ‘YES PLEASE!’.

    They look delicious – really liking the look of the couscous salad.
