If you know me personally, you know that I appreciate simple and easy recipes. Now more than ever, with the Coronavirus quarantines happening all over, we should try to stay healthy and eat well. Delicious, easy recipes can help with that.
In this post, I’ve detailed five of my favorite easy, vegan recipes. And well, because a lot of us need it right now, I’ve also provided vegan wine pairings for each! Don’t forget, if you need a wine delivery right now, we can ship directly to you. No need to leave the house! Stay safe out there, everyone.
These are a few easy, vegan recipes (and wine pairings) to help you out during these trying times! Hopefully, you have a lot of these ingredients and pantry staples on hand already.
Tofuna Sandwich Spread
This recipe for vegan tuna salad only contains five ingredients – tofu, vegan mayo, celery, scallions, and nutritional yeast. Fancy enough for brunch, it’s also simple enough to make for yourself (and the kids if they’re home with you!) at lunchtime or for a quick dinner. Enjoy it with a glass of Chianti! Hey, when you can’t go to Italy, you can pretend, right?

Another delicious meat alternative, this “chorizo” is made with all real ingredients and packed with spices. Browning the ingredients gives the dish a deep flavor. Make a big batch and you can use it in all sorts of meals, from tacos to breakfasts to rice and potato-based dishes. Serve it with a glass of chilled white wine!

Miyoko’s Phenomenally Vegan Sicilian-Style Cauliflower
Of course, I love a good recipe from our friends at Miyoko’s! And this particular cauliflower recipe involves red wine! It’s super quick and simple, and you hardly have to measure your ingredients, which also include olives, capers, pine nuts, and salt. The cauliflower becomes very tender, and it’s amazing with a glass of Semillon!
This dish is even better if you happen to have some of Miyoko’s Vegan Smoked Mozz on hand. And if you don’t, we can fix that! Get our vegan wine and cheese packages shipped to your door!
Pair it with our 2017 Tringario Ludopata Semillon
Curry Chickpea Waldorf Salad
Here’s a twist on a classic salad with plenty of interchangeable ingredients, including fruits, nuts, and vegetables, to keep you healthy while you’re quarantined! You probably already have a few cans of chickpeas in your pantry anyway. Now pair it with a nice glass of rosé for spring!
This recipe is from the first episode of “What’s in Your Pantry?” Every week, Rebecca of Powered by Plants Consulting will feature a plant-based kitchen ingredient that viewers need help with and show you how to use them. Perfect for times like these!

Bittersweet Cashew Cream Truffle Squares
Did you think I’d forget dessert? If there was ever a time you were entitled to dessert, that time is now! These truffle squares require only four ingredients – thick cashew cream (which you can make), dark chocolate, vanilla extract, and either melted chocolate or cocoa powder. Get comfortable and enjoy your chocolate with a bold red. You deserve it.
The author of this recipe is the queen of vegan desserts. You can get her cookbook Vegan Chocolate: Unapologetically Luscious and Decadent Dairy-Free Desserts in the Kindle version as well!
