1. Vegan Baked Taquitos

Vegan Baked Taquitos


When it comes to “easy vegan dishes you just throw in the oven” this recipe takes the cake. (The vegan cake, that is.) 

Created by Francesca of @plantifullybased, this one just goes to show that even vegetarian meals can be of the stick-to-your-ribs variety. Gone are the frozen taquitos of your college days- time to swap out those old frostbitten rolls for these homemade tortilla soup taquitos!  

This recipe makes sure that your dinner is simple- without being boring- by using ingredients like our Organic Tortilla Gluten-free soup, refried beans and some jalapeños, making these taquitos exceptionally flavorful. Twenty minutes in your oven, and these taquitos will be ready to show off on the dinner table.


  1. Vegan Cheesy Cauliflower Bake

Another delightful (and did we mention, vegan?!) recipe from the cozy kitchen of @plantifullybased, this deceptively cheesy side dish will have you coming back for seconds. Every. Single. Time. 

With only a few minutes of prep time, you can throw this bake in the oven and forget about it for about 30 minutes while you focus on other things, like laughing at our collection of vegan memes or working out virtually with some of our favorite fitness influencers.  


  1. Vegan Lentil Soup Meatballs

Vegan Lentil Soup Meatballs

Here’s another easy recipe you can stick in the oven and forget: vegan meatballs!

These meatless-meatballs, designed by @sweetsimplevegan, get their wonderful flavor from our Organic French Lentil soup. No one will know you used a convenient, pre-made soup to make these “meatballs”… unless you tell them. *wink wink*


  1. Crispy Baked Tofu

 You know what we love about tofu? Well, everything- but specifically we love tofu for the flexibility and diversity it offers vegan dishes. If you miss the meaty texture of your favorite dinners, you are in luck with this easy oven-baked recipe, also from Jasmine of @sweetsimplevegan

You can use this easy, baked tofu in any dish that you would add meat to, and even some that you normally wouldn’t! We especially love adding this crispy tofu to our Vegan Chicken Noodle soup cups and the Miso Soup with Organic Ramen Noodles to give them a little something extra. A few simple ingredients + a tiny bit of time prep time, then you simply stick your tofu cubes in the oven. 

Beware: these will have your taste buds screaming, “gimme me some oven baked tofu!” every night. 


  1. Sweet Potato Nachos 

Baked Sweet Potato Nachos

These oven baked sweet potato nachos, from @plantbasedrd, were easily thrown together with the help of the black bean lime soup cup. Bake your sweet potatoes, prep your black bean soup cup, choose your favorite nacho toppings, then layer it all together. Simple, meet Delicious. 

It’s so easy that you don’t even need a recipe- just an idea to get you motivated and inspired in the kitchen. Make your own vegan black bean soup nachos, and tag us on Instagram so we can see what you came up with!
