I’m sharing three nights of easy plant based dinner recipes you can whip up after work. On the weeknights, I want a recipe that is simple, fast & quick, but tastes delicious. These are some vegan dinner recipes that my husband and I both love! There’s even a grain free option if you’re into that sort of thing 🙂

*SWEET POTATO BLACK BEAN BOWLS WITH CILANTRO LIME CAULIFLOWER RICE*

1 large sweet potato, diced

salt and pepper

Mix all together in a mixing bowl. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes at 375.

1 can Black Beans, rinsed and drained
