The Vegan Stoner is a cartoon tomato who always has the munchies and is a lazy cook. "He" is the invention of Portland-based designers Sarah Conrique and Graham I. Haynes, the writers, cooks, and illustrators behind VeganStoner.com. Each recipe is super easy and easy to follow — limited to about six ingredients and six steps — with illustrations of the ingredients. The duo's first cookbook just came out; here are a few of its recipes.

3. Add ½ cup water and a can of drained peas.
4. Mix in a handful of nutritional yeast and 2 handfuls of flour.
5. Mix in a spoonful of mustard and a spoonful of chili sauce.
6. Mix cooked pasta into sauce.
