These 3-ingredient vegan recipes couldn’t be easier to make

Following a vegan diet doesn’t have to be complicated! There are plenty of simple and delicious vegan recipes that will have your mouth watering. If you’re craving a vegan meal in a hurry, head over to TikTok for tasty vegan recipes that use just three ingredients! Here are five three-ingredient vegan recipes from TikTok that you need to try.

1. Three-ingredient vegan burger patties

Craving a burger? Try making this simple three-ingredient vegan burger. All you need are oats, beans and pasta sauce. Start by blending a can of black beans until smooth. Set them aside, and blend 1 cup of oats. Mix the beans and oats together. Then mix in 1 cup of pasta sauce. Next, form the mixture into burger patties, and toss them on the grill! Once cooked, enjoy your three-ingredient burger patty with the toppings of your choice. 

2. Three-ingredient vegan watermelon ‘tuna

This three-ingredient “tuna” can be added to sushi rolls, rice bowls or enjoyed on its own. To make it, cut a watermelon into thin slices. Marinate the watermelon overnight in soy sauce and seaweed. For a slightly more flavorful “tuna,” you can also add sesame oil and chili flakes. Once the watermelon is done marinating, cook it in a pan until it gains a tuna-like consistency. Then, serve up your “tuna” however you like! TikToker @amyleeactive recommends garnishing it with sesame seeds. 

3. Three-ingredient vegan pumpkin cookies

For an easy vegan dessert with plenty of flavor, try these three-ingredient pumpkin cookies! Simply blend half a cup of rolled oats into flour. Then mix it with pumpkin puree and maple syrup. If you’re craving a chocolatey dessert, feel free to add some chocolate chips to the mixture as well. Then, form the dough into cookie shapes and bake them at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
