Low-cost Vegan Options

Sam Turnbull. Pasta often comes to the rescue on those busy days when appetites are ravenous and the willingness to cook is low. For an easy pasta dish packed with greens, combine a serving of your favorite whole grain noodles with frozen spinach, shelled edamame, and extra virgin olive oil.

This combination of complex carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fat is an excellent way to get all of your macrobiotics on one plate. Whole grain pasta tends to contain more B vitamins, fiber, and protein. As a finishing touch, top it with frozen shelled edamame to balance out your meal with some protein.

For some easily added flavor, mix your pasta dish with garlic powder, red pepper flakes, black pepper, and nutritional yeast.

For a recipe to model your meal after, try this spaghetti with spinach and white beans. Just swap the chopped onion and garlic with one tablespoon of onion powder and one teaspoon of garlic powder. SEE D JAN. Spread some peanut butter on top and add sliced bananas for a quick, affordable meal or snack.

This meal includes both complex carbohydrates from the whole grain toast, plus simple carbohydrates from the banana, both of which provide energy to help you go about your day. As convenient as they are, vegan canned soups can sometimes leave the stomach wanting, calorie-wise. But, for a quick meal, you can and should add your own accouterments, such as frozen vegetables, brown rice, or whole grain toast on the side.

Be sure to pick a low-sodium soup, as regularly eating high-sodium foods can lead to high blood pressure over time. Oats are a good source of complex carbohydrates, fiber, protein, and an array of important vitamins and minerals, including manganese, copper, and vitamin B1.

Frozen fruit like strawberries and blueberries can be added on top and microwaved with the oats. But if you see fresh fruit on sale, buy it and freeze it at home. Julieanna Hever. You can make a nutritious vegan stir-fry without ever having to chop vegetables, let alone an onion.

If you want to use all frozen produce, look for bagged mixed vegetables that contain flavor-packed produce, like onions and bell peppers. As for the rice, using microwaveable brown rice will cut down on preparation time while delivering healthy carbs.

But if you have the time and energy for it, cooking a batch of rice that you can use during the week is a good option, too. Whether you need to save energy or just time, these easy plant-based meal ideas are worthy of your regular dinner rotation.

You can make this vegetable stir-fry easier by using pre-baked and seasoned tofu and by skipping the chopped vegetables in favor of using a bagged mix.

The supermarkets are falling over themselves to get out new and improved vegan options, which is great for us! The other supermarkets also all have own-brand products and new ones are coming out all the time — check out the free-from chilled, freezer dry goods sections for things like vegan yogurt, cheese, burgers, patties, mince, pies, sausages, mayo, pizzas, chocolate, cream, desserts, butter and lots more, for all budgets.

On the whole health food shops will be more expensive than supermarkets but better quality with a wider range of vegan, zero waste and local products.

A great way to save time and money is to make big batches eg on a Sunday and then freeze for dinners and pack lunches throughout the week. You can try buying in bulk from wholesalers to save money as well. Asian supermarkets also often sell in bulk so this can be a really good option too.

Try writing a shopping list and make an agreement with yourself to only buy exactly what you need. Sauces and dressings are a great and often cheap way of sprucing up a very basic meal.

Buddha bowls are essentially bowls of veg, rice and often tofu with a delicious sauce, such as satay. You can make up a big batch of sauce and then add it to other dishes throughout the week or freeze it.

You can make this vegetable stir-fry easier by using pre-baked and seasoned tofu and by skipping the chopped vegetables in favor of using a bagged mix. When baked they take on a magnificent texture. Consider baked sweet potatoes one of the all-time great winter foods. Cabbage: Nearly as cheap as potatoes.

Unlike potatoes, cabbage is extremely nutrient-dense. Other cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower cost triple the price but hardly last a week. Cabbage is delicious in stir-fries and is the main ingredient in coleslaw.

Finely-sliced raw cabbage makes for a colorful and crunchy salad topping. Carrots: Loaded with fiber and beta carotene. Excellent sliced and added to stir-fries.

Or scrub thoroughly and cut into sticks and serve alongside hummus. Also terrific when grated for salad. Onions: Among the cheapest of all vegetables, the most common varieties are yellow, red, and white. Yellow onions are invariably the cheapest. Every variety tastes about the same, aside from sweet Vidalia onions.

Chopped onions browned in skillet are a magnificent addition to any dish from stir-fries to mashed potatoes to spaghetti sauce. Check the prices of spinach, collards, kale, and chard and buy whichever is cheapest.

All of these choices are fantastic chopped and added in the final two minutes of cooking your stir-fry. Pre-washed spinach packed in big cellophane bags sells at an especially good price.

And frozen spinach is cheap, high quality, and excellent in casseroles. No matter where you buy your vegetables, pay attention to the price by weight, and make your purchases accordingly. Prices vary dramatically and often for no obvious reason.

For instance, you might see yellow bell peppers selling for half the price of comparably nice red bell peppers. Also remember to seek out produce items that are on sale. Supermarkets and natural food stores usually heavily discount a few particular produce items every week.

Vegetables offer outstanding nutrition and many types are remarkably cheap and easy to prepare. My guide to vegetables offers extensive and helpful coverage. Beans rank alongside leafy greens as the most nutritious of all vegan foods. They come in every size, shape, and color.

Keeping several kinds of beans in your pantry is one of the easiest ways to add variety to your diet. Both canned and dried beans are imperishable and can be stored at least a couple years. Dried beans are cheaper than canned and have better texture and flavor.

Plus, dried beans are actually even cheaper than they appear since they more than double in size and weight during cooking. They still rank among the cheapest and healthiest foods available. Every variety of bean features subtly different textures and flavors, so try as many as you can.

See my bean guide to learn how to prepare and get the most out of this important food. Finally, most grocery produce sections sell bagged mung bean sprouts, which are both protein-rich and super cheap. Bean sprouts are excellent in stir-fries add them towards the very end.

Cheap, loaded with protein, and endlessly versatile, tofu and tempeh belong on every budget-minded shopping list. These foods cost less than half the price of vegan burgers and sausages, and often deliver superior nutrition.

Natural food stores also carry TVP textured vegetable protein , which is absurdly cheap. TVP is pure protein, featuring every essential amino acid. When mixed with water and sauteed in oil and spices TVP gains a texture and flavor profile similar to ground beef. You can season it with ground cumin and pepper to make a sensational meaty spaghetti sauce.

Homemade vegan chili with black beans and TVP is probably the most delicious inexpensive protein-heavy dish on the planet. From spaghetti to macaroni to lasagna, pasta takes a thousand forms.

Breads and flatbreads come in countless varieties. I think making bread by hand is too time consuming when it comes to kneading and cleanup, but a bread machine does the job beautifully and can cut your bread costs by two-thirds. Bread from your local bakery is an affordable splurge.

These cost about one-third the price of tree nuts yet offer comparable nutrition. Any variety of porridge is one of the most delicious and satisfying breakfast possibilities, especially during winter.

Hot cereals are remarkably cheap, and many varieties take just minutes to cook. Any good natural food store will carry several varieties in its bulk section. Steel-cut oats take about fifteen minutes longer to cook than rolled oats, but their immensely satisfying texture makes them worth the wait.

Boxed breakfast cereals are surprisingly pricey. But most natural food stores sell premium organic breakfast cereals in economy-sized bags. They also commonly carry these breakfast cereals in their bulk department, once again at prices far below boxed brands.

Regardless, hot cereal is always a much better deal. Nutrient dense and cheap as can be. This stirring is a little time-consuming and messy but you can make the task easier by inverting the sealed jar at room temperature for a couple days before stirring.

This saves you the hassle of stirring. You can buy canned tomatoes whole, diced, or made into sauce. Canned tomato sauce is often just as good as glass-jarred sauce, yet sells for half the price. The key to saving money on vegan food is to shop in multiple places—the more places you shop at, the more great deals you will find.

Whenever possible, take some extra time to wander aimlessly around your favorite food market. You might find a great deal on a few fruits and vegetables that are normally out of your price range. Supermarkets typically offer an impressive produce section, and low prices on pasta, canned tomatoes, and bagged rice and beans.

Unfortunately, most supermarket bread is neither good nor cheap. Also note that when it comes to products like organic breakfast cereal or vegan ice cream, supermarket prices are generally terrible. Supermarkets usually sell these foods at list price, whereas your local natural food store typically strives to price them competitively.

These bulk departments typically offer unbeatable prices on beans, rice, nuts, cereals, and other healthy vegan foods. You can lock in savings for months to come by freezing this produce for winter. For berries and sliced fruits, the IQF individually quick freeze method is the way to go.

Just arrange your fruit in a single layer of a baking sheet, and put them in the freezer until rock-hard. Then transfer them to an airtight container or freezer bag for long-term storage.

This freezing method keeps your fruit from clumping together into an unappetizing frosty brick. And because the fruit freezes much quicker when processed this way, it suffers less damage from the formation of ice crystals. Ethnic Groceries: Find these in any good-sized city and even in some smaller towns.

Whenever I visit these markets, I rarely see anyone not of that particular ethnicity. Asian markets offer unbeatable prices on tofu, rice, soy sauce, hot sauce, and seaweed. Indian groceries are sensational for yummy bagged snacks, papadums, and pickle relishes.

Most also sell freshly-made hot samosas and pakora for a pittance. But if you enjoy gardening, you can count your gardening time as leisure and exercise.

Zucchini, potatoes, and winter squash are some of the easiest and most productive crops. And of course, nothing compares to a tomato picked right from the vine. You may also be able to work-trade at a local farm in exchange for fruits and vegetables.

Supermarkets and natural food stores often sell potatoes, onions, and carrots in large bags. Typically the price by weight is 50 to 70 percent less than buying these same foods loose.

You can also buy big bags of rice and beans at a steep discount. Find these at wholesale clubs like Costco, as well as Indian, Asian, and Mexican grocery stores. Oddly, supermarkets and natural food stores rarely carry beans and rice in large sacks. Live with enough people and your group can get big discounts by buying food in wholesale quantities.

I once lived at a co-op and a local farm made a weekly delivery. Some vegan products are cheaper to make than buy and often very easy. A few examples:. This is very cheap, very good indeed and also very easy to make.

And you can add the leftover beans or chickpeas to make a nice dip, pate, curry or stew. This chana masala is incredibly rich in flavour, very cheap to make, extremely easy and healthy too! This sauce is really easy to make and sooo cheesy… the main ingredients are potatoes and carrots!
