These 5 meals have 5 ingredients and under and this is how to make them meat free

These recipes make the most of just a handful of ingredients, but they certainly don’t compromise on flavor!

If you are thinking about going meat-free or are already vegetarian or vegan you don’t have to miss out on flavor or simplicity of cooking.

Here’s how to turn these 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge recipes into a meat-free feast.

Meatless: 5 recipes with 5 ingredients

1. Chicken And Pesto Buckwheat Risotto

Chicken-Pesto-Buckwheat-Risotto-Recipe

Swap out the chicken with added vegetables to really fill out this risotto. As this is a pesto based risotto you may want to add some sweet potato, chickpeas or even roasted carrots! If you have trouble finding the buckwheat groats (such as the Bob’s Red Mill brand) you can just use arborio rice instead.

2. Steak with Beet, Walnut & Feta Salad

Steak-with-Beet-Walnut-Feta-Salad

Replace the lean beef in this salad with some barbecued tempeh (or tofu)! 100 grams of tempeh contains 19 grams of protein, so you can rest assured you won’t be hangry afterward.

3. Quick Thai Chicken Laksa Soup

There are so many things you could do to this recipe to make it a tasty meat-free recipe! We think adding silken or firm tofu into the laksa will transform this dish. It will also lessen the cooking time for you! You could also try using mushrooms as the star of the soup.
