Finally, some yummy, healthy vegan one-pot recipes that are only super yummy and comforting, but are also healthy and low in calories. These are perfect for people who are on a weight loss journey, or for people who are simply looking to eat low-calorie, high-volume foods that are filling. 

Now that the weather is starting to get colder (at least in Canada, it already is!), these recipes work totally well as comfort foods. If you love the idea of chowder, stews, and minestrone (vegan, of course!), then you’re definitely in the right place.

Furthermore, I want to show you guys that eating healthy, and even for weight loss, doesn’t have to be boring and unsatisfying! If you guys don’t know, I lost around 10 pounds in the beginning of the pandemic (isn’t it weird that we’re saying the “beginning of the pandemic” now…?) and one of the things that helped me was volume eating and making sure I was still eating delicious meals. If you want to know how I lost the weight, watch this video to find out!

  • 170g portobello mushrooms, sliced thinly 
  • 150g oyster mushrooms 
  • 2 small vegan hot dogs, sliced 
  • 3 cups chopped cabbage 
  • 1 package of soft or extra soft tofu, sliced
  • 1/2 onion, sliced 
  • 3/4 cup baked beans (optional) 
  • 4-6 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 tsp kelp powder (optional) 
  • salt & pepper to taste 

For the sauce:

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic

  1. Made the Chowder twice. Excellent!! I used a Instant Pot and it did overflow though with a double and a then a single batch. I’ll try it with a regular pot next time.
