3 Ingredient Budget Friendly Vegan Recipes

I’m back you with another THREE INGREDIENT VEGAN RECIPES post. These are, of course, budget friendly as well. Yup, budget friendly, easy and ridiculously simple.

Remember that these are just simply ideas and you can always feel free to add things into each recipe to make it your own and make it a bit more complex with more nutrients added.I try to make the recipes as “balanced” as possible by adding in a healthy carb source, healthy protein source and some sort of veg/fruit. I think I did a pretty good job but of course, 3 ingredients is limited so you can always add in more things.

Hope you enjoy the recipes, scroll below for the written recipes and watch the video above to see the prepping in action.

Lentil Spaghetti

Ingredients (1 serving):

  • 3/4 cup dry red split lentils
  • 1 cup store bought vegan friendly pasta sauce
  • 1 serving spaghetti


  1. Soak the lentils in water for 10-15 minutes before cooking.
  2. Add the lentils to a pan with a little bit of water and bring to a boil. Boil spaghetti in the meantime.
  3. After about 10-15 minutes, the lentils should be mostly cooked. Add the pasta sauce.
  4. Cover and simmer in low heat for about 5-10 minutes or until lentils are cooked.
  5. Mix in cooked spaghetti and serve!

Hummus Soba Noodles

Ingredients (1 serving):

  • 1 serving soba (buckwheat) noodles
  • 1/3 medium cucumber
  • 2-3 tbsp hummus + splash of water
  • Optional garnishes: toasted sesame seeds or chopped green onions


  1. Cook soba noodles according to instructions.
  2. Chop cucumber into long, thin pieces.
  3. Mix hummus with a splash of water to thin it out until it is more of a sauce consistency, rather than a dip or spread.
  4. Drain and rinse soba noodles with cold water.
  5. Add in hummus and cucumber to the noodles and mix well.
  6. Top with toasted sesame seeds and/or green onions (optional).

Peanut Butter Banana Nice Cream

Ingredients (1 serving):

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1-2 tbsp peanut butter (I used powdered peanut butter)
  • small handful raspberries


  1. Add the frozen banana into a food processor. Blend until it is a smooth/creamy consistency. Be patient!
  2. Add in the peanut butter (I used powdered peanut butter, but you can use regular) and blend it until mixed in well.
  3. Place the mixture in a bowl and add toppings of your choice! I went with raspberries.
  4. I made a little peanut butter drizzle to top the nice cream with by mixing the same powdered peanut butter with a little bit of water.
