5 Minute 5 Ingredient Vegan Recipes

We all know that feeling when we get home from work/school and all you want to do is have a giant meal and sit in front of the TV. Now unfortunately, most of us don’t have a live-in chef to make us gourmet vegan meals every evening. And most of us are probably too cheap to eat out every evening too!

So, in true Cheap Lazy Vegan form, I decided to make three recipes that can be done in about 5 minutes and that only use 5 ingredients (a little more, if you want to make it fancy). These are the ultimate cheap lazy vegan meals that are perfect for weeknights, when you just CANNOT BE BOTHERED!

Ultimate Cheap Lazy Vegan Recipes (5 Ingredients, 5 Minutes)

Creamy Tahini Ramen 


  • 1 serving vegan friendly ramen noodles
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1/2 tbsp soy sauce or soy sauce substitute
  • 1/2 cup shelled edamame beans (or any other plant-based protein)
  • Optional toppings: chopped green onion, sriracha


  1. Cook the ramen noodles according to directions. If the edamame beans are frozen, add these into the water while the ramen is cooking.
  2. While noodles and edamame beans are cooking, mix tahini, maple syrup and soy sauce in a small bowl. Add a splash of water and mix until well combined.
  3. When ramen noodles are cooked, drain and put back into the same pot. On low heat, add the sauce and mix well until water is absorbed – this should take less than a minute.
  4. Serve with some green onion (optional) and sriracha (again, optional!).
  5. ENJOY!!!
