Ingredients

Optional

Instructions

  • If using dried red lentils then prepare according to package instructions (or just add 1 part red lentils to 1.5 parts of water with a little salt in a pot. Bring it to a boil and then let the lentils simmer for about 12-15 minutes depending on how soft you like them. Season with a little more salt, when the lentils are cooked. Alternatively you can cook them in veggie broth for extra flavour).
  • Meanwhile cut the spring onions and bell pepper. Also grate the garlic.
  • Get a big bowl and throw in all the ingredients, including the lentils and beans.
  • Finally, if using, add the tomato sauce (as much as you like), give it a stir, do a taste test and, if necessary, season one last time with salt and pepper.
  • Ready!

NOTES

Please note that the nutritional information includes wholegrain bread.

Vegan Weight Loss Questions

How can vegans lose weight fast?

Losing weight fast, for vegans or meat-eaters, is not advisable. It is better to follow a sensible diet, eating foods rich in leafy greens, whole grains, healthy fats and protein.

A diet that will help you lose weight gradually, no more than 1-2 pounds per week. This way, you can avoid putting back all the weight you have lost, and then some!

Is it easier to lose weight when vegan?

Following a vegan diet is no shortcut to weight loss, though a plant-based diet is more conducive to good health. A vegan diet has plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, and legumes – which is what someone whose goal is weight loss should be eating plenty of!

Then again, Oreos are vegan too! So it is more important to eat healthy plant-based foods on a daily basis, to attain weight loss.

What is the secret to losing weight on a vegan diet?

The secret to losing weight on a vegan and on any diet is calorie deficit. By burning more than you consume, you get into a calorie deficit, which results in weight loss.

It is as simple – and as straightforward – as that. Unless you have any other health complications standing in your way, of course. This is why, before following any weight loss diet, it is important to get your doctor’s advice.

I hope you have got some interesting ideas to try out in the kitchen, and new recipes to help with your weight loss efforts. Tell us which of the 60 recipes is your favorite, which gave you the most trouble and which you will be making again, and again!
