Sometimes You Don't Feel Like Cooking

My original plan for tonight was to make something with green lentils, but, given that I didn't walk into my apartment until 9:15 p.m., I couldn't bring myself to start making a dish that might take 45 minutes to prep & cook.

On nights like these, it's good to have something quick and easy, but also healthy, in your kitchen.  I am not a fan of "TV Dinners."  If I don't know what an ingredient is, I don't want to eat it.  There are exceptions to the frozen rule - Kashi, Amy's Kitchen, Evol Burritos, etc.

I do have some quick, non-frozen options available at my local market.  Sunneen Health Foods makes a number of fresh, ready to eat vegan meal options, including a Pesto Pasta with almonds.  They also make my favorite garlic hummus.

My other favorite quick meal is One Stop Naturals' Macro Vegan Dumplings.  They are good hot or cold.  I had mine tonight with a side of steamed broccoli.

I'd love to hear about your favorite quick and easy vegetarian foods!
