Easy Vegan Snacks
Anyone have any easy/quick/filling vegan snacks that are staples for them? Things that require little prep for lunches or when you need a little something to make it until dinner. If its something I could prep once or twice a week that is good cold, that works too.
I've made homemade kale chips before - do they store well? They don't usually last too long and are a bit time consuming. Commercial ones seem a bit pricey. I've been eating the nori strips as an alternative when I need a low-cal salt fix.
Trying to think of alternatives to nuts/trail mix, celery/apple and PB, or hummus. Maybe a bean or lentil salad? Bean dip and some tortilla chips?
They store well if in airtight container. You can always re crisp in oven. Whether you consider them time consuming or not is probably is subjective.
When I was vegan I ate a lot of wheat thins with melted soy cheese and sour " supreme" made homemade guacamole often. Also made salsa and chicken salad with soy chicken and veganase. But this is all a lot of processed stuff. I used to eat it but I know some people aren't into it.
I used to eat a lot of bananas and peanut butter, but I am also gf. Hummus and crackers are great. You can easily whip up a batch of hummus and keep it in the fridge all week. Other spreads work well too.
I also will cut and eat half and avocado, make a smoothie with the immersion blender, munch on cold leftovers, make a taco out of the ever present taco shells, microwave a sweet potato, or eat any other assortment of odds and ends lying around the house.
I usually shoot for whole foods in an easily consumable form with some little condiment for extra flavor, it keeps snacks more affordable.
