Lazy Vegan Meals ~ Vegan Fried Chicken, BBQ Cauliflower & Baked Fries

Hey vegans, wannabe vegans and almost there vegans! Things are a little crazy this week as I am at the tail end–finally–of my fifth book in the Mustang Prairie series so between my day job as a writer and my night job as an author, things are chaotic.



So not only am I being a lazy vegan but I’m going to pass on my lazy meal to you.

Now, if you’re expecting ‘lazy’ to mean pop a vegan pizza in the oven, you’re way off base. I have yet to find a vegan pizza that I love enough to waste the calories so no. No way. Nope. Not even a little bit. But if you have any recommendations, drop links in the comments.

When I say lazy vegan meals, I mean that I let the oven do all, if not most, of the work.

Here’s what a lazy vegan meal looks like:

BBQ Cauliflower, Baked Fries & Vegan Schnitzel

As you can see from the photo, this is a lazy vegan recipe with just a handful of ingredients.


Vegan Schnitzel (or other vegan meat alternative)
BBQ Sauce
Herbs & Spices

That’s it, that is all you need to get dinner on the table in 30 to 40 minutes while the oven does the hard work.

Lazy vegan dinner recipes

Preheat oven to 200C/400F

Step 1: Start with the potatoes. Scrub & wash them, cut them into your preferred shape. Season with your favorite herbs & spices, toss to coat and cook for 30 to 35 minutes or until they’re crispy on the outside and soft inside.

Step 2: Weigh, rinse & chop cauliflower. I used about 400 grams for two people. Season, again with your favorite herbs & spices, toss to coat. Pop in the oven for 20 minutes.

Flavorful baked bbq cauliflower!

Step 3: After 20 minutes, remove cauliflower and toss it in your favorite vegan barbecue sauce. Be sure to check the ingredients for non-vegan ingredients such as honey or anchovies. Return to oven for another 10 to 12, or until fork tender.

Step 4: Check potatoes for done-ness. When they are very close to done, toss the vegan schnitzel/chicken in for four minutes on each side.

Step 5: Grub & enjoy!

Lazy vegan meals can be on the table in 30 minutes

Note: Even for lazy vegan meals, I weigh out the ingredients and add them to my food tracker app.
