Here’s a fast and tasty dinner featuring vegan burgers, a spicy cool soup, and cute little potatoes, all ready in 20 minutes — a half hour tops if you move really, really slowly.

If you’re looking for something familiar, hearty, and comforting for the evening meal, our vegan Italian meatball sub dinner might be just the thing.

15-Minute Chickpea Masala Dinner

In my review of Maya Kaimal Indian Simmer Sauces, I admit to how lazy I am about roasting and grinding and mixing and measuring all the myriad spices that add up to the amazing flavors of Indian cuisine.

They make anything taste like it came from the finest Indian restaurant.

If you’re craving Indian flavors and want dinner in a hurry (without doing take-out — again!), you’re in luck. This entire dinner, built around an effortless Chickpea Masala, takes 15 minutes to make — even if you’re moving like a sloth after a long busy day. Continue Reading…
