Eating vegetarian and plant based meals makes life on a boat simpler. Beans, lentils and grains do not require refrigeration or freezing like most meats. And with limited fridge and freezer space, I appreciate the extra space. In honour of World Vegetarian Day, here are nine of my favourite vegetarian recipes for life on a boat (or land).
This recipe is inspired by a brewery in Bellingham, Washington where I first tried vegetarian bangers and mash. By making the mashed potatoes in the Instant Pot, dinner is ready in about 30 minutes. Feel free to try other veggies in place of the peas – roasted brussels sprouts are a good choice. [get the recipe]
Just a few ingredients and in less than 30 minutes a deliciously spiced broccoli soup. The Instant Pot makes it super easy and only one pot to clean! Adjust the spices for your personal taste. [get the recipe]
This is so easy, clean up is a breeze and the pasta is cooked perfectly every time! No more boiling water in one pot, heating sauce in another and using a pan to sauté veggies. It all comes together in less than 30 minutes! [get the recipe]
These veggie and black bean bowls are quick and easy to make. Perfect for a busy day or after a long passage. The dressing comes together in just a couple of minutes, thanks to using pre-made hummus. [get the recipe]
Comfort food at it’s best and easiest!! Using the Instant Pot to make this Four Cheese Mac & Cheese is quick with minimal clean-up. It tastes great straight out of the pot and even better with a few minutes in the oven. [get the recipe]
This egg casserole is super easy and flexible – pick and choose to satisfy any flavour cravings. Plus it’s an easy way to clean out the fridge. Enjoy this healthy breakfast throughout the week – it’s easy to reheat. [get the recipe]
