The following are links to some easy plant based recipes that you can make!

A personal vegan recipe that I love to make is my simple crunchy and tangy cucumber salad (recipe and picture below).

Ingredients:

  • 1 peeled cucumber
  • 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups of white distilled vinegar
  • salt
  • pepper

Directions:

  • With a knife and a cutting board, slice your cucumber into thin round slices (like pictured above).
  • Put the cucumber slices into a medium sized bowl or container of your choice.
  • Pour the olive oil and vinegar into the bowl, on top of the cucumbers.
  • Stir the ingredients in your bowl until the cucumbers are evenly covered with the olive oil and vinegar.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste. (The more salt you use, the less tangy your dish will be and the less salt you use, the sourer it will be, so do this step to your liking).
  • Optional Step: If you would like, you may also add other diced vegetables into this cucumber salad, such as tomatoes, onions and bell peppers.
  • Enjoy!
