I posted this in the Vegan and Vegetarian group a while ago, but there don't seem to be a lot of people actively using that group right now.

I'd love to build up my stash of go-to quick healthy vegan dishes. By healthy I mean, no or very little oil, sugar, or salt, and any grains must be whole grains.

Here's a couple of mine to get it started.

Spicy Buffalo Tofu Pizza (a favorite of my spouse)

Ingredients
Firm tofu
Cauliflower
Frank's hot sauce
Nutritional/Brewers yeast
Whole grain crust.

Drain and cube a package of firm tofu. (Use whatever method you prefer to drain)
Chop up some cauliflower and toss everything in a saucepan with a large amount of Franks hot sauce. Cover and stir occasionally until the cauliflower looks cooked (some people like it cooked different amounts so I didn't put in a time) Towards the end leave the cover off to cook off excess liquid. The tofu may crumble as you cook it, but that ends up working out well.

Use a whole grain pizza crust of your choice. I prefer the store brand 7" whole grain pizza from Stop & Shop. Its a nice individual size and fits in my toaster oven.

Place a generous amount of the tofu cauliflower mixture on the pizza and sprinkle some nutritional/brewers yeast on top. Then stick it in the oven/toaster oven at 450 degrees for 7 minutes or until it looks done - follow instructions for whatever crust you purchase. If your pans tend to stick easily you may spray a teeny tiny bit of oil on the pan so the pizza doesn't stick.

Leftover spicy tofu can be used as a salad topper or in a wrap.

Vegan Frozen Yogurt

Ingredients
Frozen fruit of your choice
Yogurt replacement of your choice

I find berries work best for this and I prefer coconut milk yogurt, but soy yogurt works fine.

Stick everything in a blender and the result is fantastic. YUM!

Ok, who has some other suggestions?

I find a lot of recipes on pinterest and then modify them to be lower calories. I try to use fresh veggies when possible, but my emergency food consists of steam fresh frozen veggies - baby broccoli blend are my favorite, or edamame or asparagus. I'll just eat a whole bag of veggies with a salad and call it lunch (I always have an extra bag in the freezer at work just in case.)

Hmm, I haven't really explored pinterest. Thanks for the suggestion.
I love the frozen veggies too. I can go through a whole big bag of brussel sprouts pretty quickly Smile

It is probably somewhere from 360 to 430 cals per 100 grams. It's a lot of calories so I wouldn't eat more then a piece a day.

Hello
I just toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Put on a baking sheet covered with foil and cook until tender (about 10-15 minutes) It's delicious!!
