These quick and easy recipes are great for that weekday rush. Try these Moroccan Chickpea Pockets (make sure to buy tinned chickpeas), or this delicious Bean Burrito. Save on time and dishes with this One Pot Pasta recipe, or keep it fresh with this filling Garlicky Kale and Chickpea Salad. This West African Peanut Soup only takes 25 minutes to make, and it's worth every minute of it.

3. The Low-Carb Main

For a spicy low-carb kick, look no further than this Chickpea Curry recipe. This gluten-free Cauliflower Pizza with Kale Pesto guarantees a tasty light meal, while these Tofu-Broccoli Stuffed Avocados are sure to leave you feeling full. A hearty Tahini-Roasted Lemony Cauliflower goes great with greens or a salad, and a trusty Scrambled Tofu recipe is good at any time of the day.

4. The Dessert

These three-ingredient Flapjacks are great for family get-togethers or office potlucks. Check out these low-maintenance Poached Pears for a simple, classy dessert, or try this filling Paleo Apple Crumble for something with more bite. This Marbled Chocolate Banana Bread is incredible, and there's nothing quite like a refreshing Strawberry Sorbet after a heavy meal.

5. The Breakfast

These Greek Chickpeas on Toast are sure to kick your day off right. You can't go wrong with a simple Oatmeal Breakfast or the classic Avocado Toast, either (because Gordon Ramsay says so). The protein-packed Banana Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie is great for a breakfast on the go, while this decadent French Toast recipe is perfect for a weekend morning in.

9. The Snack

This simple Oven-Roasted Tomato Bruschetta makes a great snack at any time of the day. Sweet Potato Fries are always delicious, but if you're craving something sweet, try some ridiculously easy Frozen Grapes. These Baked Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips will make your sweet tooth happy too, but if you're on the hunt for something savory, pita bread with Homemade Hummus will more than likely do the trick.

10. The Struggle Meal

Some tasty Rice and Beans will keep the hunger at bay until your paycheck comes in, as will this Spiced Lentil Soup. Try some Vegan Fried Rice with frozen veggies, or this delicious Vegan Ramen. Some hearty Chilli and some decent Potato Cakes have seen many a broke vegan through a struggle week, too.
