I recently moved into a house where I will be able to do a lot of cooking (previously in a shared kitchen that was way too filthy so I ate a lot of pasta.) I'm attempting to construct meals that are:
a) cheap & not using that many "fancy" ingredients
b) vegan (obviously)
c) inclusive of at least one serving of vegetables and if there are grains preferably whole grains- I have a lot of energy deficiency issues and whole grains & veggies tend to helkp
d) without beans (exception of soy and lima beans- don't know why, but they don't bother me)
e) not TOO time intensive or requiring that many pots/pans as I don't have very many- I do have a slow cooker, rice cooker, and kitchen aid standing mixer though in terms of special equipment
These are a lot of requirements to meet and I've been having a lot of trouble. Lately I've been making a lot of seitan, fajitas, pasta, and stir fry.. but I LOVE variety so it's not doing it!
Thanks in advance!
