Quick and Easy Vegan Snacks

It’s easy to whip up a snack using ingredients that you already have at home. Here are a few ideas:

  • Make Festive Salsa or Texas Caviar and serve it with corn tortilla chips.
  • Microwave tortillas and fill them with canned refried beans, salsa, guacamole, and corn for easy burritos.
  • Zap a veggie burger in the microwave. Put it on a bun with your favorite condiments and toppings.
  • Vending-machine connoisseurs can munch on an array of options, such as Lance Toasty Crackers With Peanut Butter, Cracker Jacks, or Chocolove Dark Chocolate bar.
  • Cut up veggies such as carrots, celery, and cucumbers and dip them into hummus or Annie’s Goddess Dressing.
  • For a sweet afternoon treat, try our Caramel Apples.
  • Make an easy pasta salad by mixing cooked spiral pasta with chopped broccoli, carrots, green pepper, corn, red onion, and your favorite vinaigrette.
  • Snacks are essential for any big game. Serve Spicy Chili-Bean Dip with Fritos.
  • Bush’s Vegetarian Baked Beans are loaded with healthy plant protein and fiber and have zero cholesterol or saturated fat. They are hearty and have a sweet, tangy taste. Microwave them straight from the can, and enjoy on toast, plain, or with sliced veggie hot dogs

    While I haven’t completely crossed the threshold to becoming vegetarian, I am approaching it. I have stopped eating all beef, pork, and fish (the only exception being sardines). I still enjoy poultry products once in a while, but more and more I am incorporating vegetarian meats into my diet. I have been perusing recipes for vegetarian breakfast menus;my favorite meal time. I made my first scrambled tofu and it came out well. Discovered several versions of facon and am eager to try them. I feel confident that I will be able to relinquish poultry. I just need to ease my way into that.

    Carla, you should not use the microwave because it depletes any nutrients whatsoever left in the food after you microwave it. A fairly popular study conducted and one you can do at home is with two house plants. Microwave all that water that you give one of the plants and let it cool to room temp and use that water, the other plant water with regular tap water. The plant watered with the microwave water dies. Foods you eat in the microwave have this same effect on cells in your body.
