Fast, healthful, vegan meals are simple. Think not of a complex dish but of tofu, tempeh, or seitan, along with rice and a vegetable (cooked or raw) and salad. For flavor, a natural food coop has powdered vegetable broth and herbs. If you're ambitious, try curry powder or paste, or (not with curry but with herbs) a spoonful or two of white wine sherry, or Marsala. It is not very different from cooking chicken or sole. Slow food is fine when you have time, but pure, vegan food can be fast in preparation. Then slow down to savor it and the conversation. It's relatively cheap, good for you, and good for the planet.
