25 Light & Lovely Plant-Based Skillet Meals

Turn to these easy 25 Light & Lovely Plant-Based Skillet Meals to learn how to provide healthful, nutritionally balanced meals that you can cook up and serve out of a skillet.

On those busy nights of the week (you know those nights—kid’s after-school practice, a long day at work, and jam-packed commute), it can be just too stressful to come home and cook a complicated meal. Yet, you also want to settle down to something nutritious and comforting to boost your health and energy at the end of a demanding day. Those family times at the table can help soothe your emotional stress for the whole family, according to research. And even if it’s just one or two people at the dinner table, those easy plant-based meal solutions offer so many rewards. That’s why I asked my favorite bloggers to share some of their top recipes for plant-based (vegan) skillet meals that you can cook up and serve right out of the skillet. And boy did they deliver some delicious, creative meals! I also am sharing some of my own favorite skillet meals I’ve served time and time again in my own kitchen. All of the skillet meals here are moderate in calories, saturated fat, and sodium, yet packed with nutrition—and good taste!
