5 New Vegan Recipes for Two

Are you planning a dinner date sometime soon with your special someone? Skip the headache of picking a vegan restaurant, and make something at home instead! (Plus, you'll know exactly what's in the dish and you won't have to worry about if it's actuuaaallly 100% vegan or not.)

Check out these 3 fresh and new vegan recipes, which will make the perfect serving size for just the 2 of you (if you reduce the recipe down to 1/3, always double-check before you make it!)

1. Sugar Snap Pea and Carrot Soba Noodles

Kate from the food blog "Cookie and Kate" has an awesome recipe for soba noodles filled with tons of yummy green vegetables. If you didn't know, soba noodles are Japanese noodles made from buckwheat flour. (Trust us, they are BOMB!)

You can find the full recipe here.

The recipe and ingredients are divided into two parts: the soba and the sauce that goes with it. Both parts only take about 25 minutes to prepare, and the end result is so delicious! Plus, you'll get all your daily greens in.

2. Spicy Curried Lentils

The best part about this dish is that it only takes 10 minutes to make. That's right...just 10 MINUTES!

It's made using a slow cooker, so it does all the hard work for you. Plus, you won't have to dirty too many dishes, which is the best thing ever, in our opinion.

If you don't know, lentils are legumes that are packed with protein. They can help lower cholesterol, increase energy levels, and even stabilize blood sugar.
