It Doesn't Get Easier Than These 50 Whole Food Plant-Based Recipes with 5 Ingredients or Less (2024)

In this previous post filled with meal plans and hundreds of wholesome plant-based recipes, there leaves no question that there are infinite delectable dish options on a plant-based diet. The other crucial part of this lifestyle is that eating this waydoes not have to be challenging. At all. In fact, it can be supersimple. With a sprinkleof creativity and a twist of courage, you can whip up a meal that is healthy, delicious, quick, low in cost, and (yes!) made with fiveingredients or less!

Here are 50 – yes 50 (!) – oil-free, sugar-free, whole food, plant-basedrecipes that can be made with five or fewer ingredients from breakfast through dessert.

***Note: I did not count herbs, spices, orother seasonings in this roundup because those are optional and the easiest addition to anything, as it is just a dash or sprinkle here or there. I also excluded other optional ingredients or garnishes in the “five” fora few of these because they were too good not to be included and still just as simple as the rest…

(And by the way, although many of these recipes are gluten-free, check out my list of 60 vegan gluten-free recipes. And if you’re hungry for more plant-based breakfast recipes, we’ve got that too.)
