Easy Plant Based Eating

Some of us suck at cooking. Some of us are lazy. Some of us way too busy(once upon a time I worked 16 hours a day, 7 days a week, so spending 1 hour for cooking was unthinkable.)

So what are things you can just pick up and eat without a whole lot of effort or time?

Post what you do here.
Even if you are an expert and usually have a lot of time, maybe something happens and you don't. So post quick and easy yet healthy foods, don't be judgemental.

    Mountains carved out Japan and separated livable areas so rural Japanese have vastly different traditions.

    The people of Yamagata make miso soup with corn as a base.
    Buy corn that comes in a husk. Tear out the whiskers.
    For 1 person take 1 ear of corn, tear into 1/3rds so you get 3 short tubes.
    Boil in about liter of water until color gets deeper.
    Check flavor, make sure it is nice and sweet.
    Turn heat off.
    Add miso paste(how much you like)
    Use residual heat to melt miso.
    Heat for another 5 minutes but make sure miso does not boil.
    Boil miso turns sour and nasty.

    Microwave Snowball Cookies. Makes 16.
    1.Flour 100g
    2.Sugar 40g
    3.Canola Oil 40g(you can probably use coconut oil or your favorite fake butter. I use grape seed!)
    4. Vanilla essence/oil to taste

    Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Take care to get rid of all lumps!
    Really, mix the heck out of this.

    Roll the mixture into 16 little balls.

    Microwave at 600 watts for 2 minutes. Might need to heat up more if you made the balls a little too big.

    To save time and (occasionally) the thought process of "what to make tonight", I have recently 'rediscovered' the home delivery meal system by Purple Carrot. I'd tried them in the past and it was Awful! But something has changed with this company because nearly every meal I've made has been a winner! So I'd say if you're short on time and your imagination isn't kicking-in, try this company.To save time and (occasionally) the thought process of "what to make tonight", I have recently 'rediscovered' the home delivery meal system by Purple Carrot.

    Japanese fresh pickles are ready in 10 minutes and you only dirty up a knife, cutting board and a plastic baggie.

    You need:
    -Fresh vegetables.
    -Salt: 1% of the weight of the vegetables.
    -Kelp powder: 1-2% of the weight of the vegetables, depending on how much you like kelp flavor.
    Optional: Sliced dried chilis, ginger, mirin, citrus peel, etc

    Coarsly chop the vegetables and put them in the baggie with the salt and other ingredients.
    Place in refrigerator for 10 minutes.
    If possible, put the baggie in a metal tray and put a smaller tray on top of the baggie, pressing it.

    Eat the pickles within 3 days.

    I make a similar recipe in 20 minutes using a microwave. I used to stuff them with meat but now I use some soy meat. I use half of a Kabocha, then I put a ton of wasabi salt after I take the seeds out. Line the bottom with wasabi soy sauce. Then I stuff it with soy meat and canned lentils. Then I put the half a kabocha with the "meat" in it in a microwave safe bowl. Put some water on the bottom. Seal the top of the dish with saran wrap. Then I microwave it at 700 watts for 18 minutes.

    Careful cutting Kabocha. Many people go to ER from kabocha cutting mishaps.
