19 Vegan Recipes for When It’s Too Hot to Turn on the Stove

It could be a primitive instinct or just that hot food isn’t appetizing in the summer heat—either way, we tend to eat less during the hottest months. With this fact in mind, we’ve compiled a list of some vegan recipes that don’t require the oven and may even cool you down from the inside out:

1. Gazpacho

This classic cold tomato soup is easy to prepare and won’t weigh you down.

2. Zucchini Pasta With Hemp Seed Alfredo Sauce

This raw pasta recipe is more refreshing than its cooked counterpart.

3. Avocado–Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

There’s nothing quite like mint ice cream on a hot summer day.

4. Summer Rolls with Two Dipping Sauces

We love any recipe that features a variety of veggies and is presented in such a pretty way.

5. Strawberry-Almond-Kale Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette

No matter what the weather, we need our daily dose of kale.

6. Raw Lasagne

A combination of sun-dried and fresh tomatoes gives this lasagne an explosion of flavor.

7. Faux-Turkey and ‘Cheese’ Roll-Up

For a quick snack, nothing could be easier.

8. Loaded Vegan Nachos

If you use a pre-made vegan queso, you’ll just have to heat it up for a minute. No problem.

9. Mock Tuna Salad

This mock tuna is perfect on a bed of lettuce as a salad or in a sandwich.

10. Fennel Arugula Citrus Salad

You’ll feel refreshed after a plate of this salad, featuring crunchy fennel and juicy oranges.

11. Cucumber Soup

This might be the simplest soup ever. Just blend cucumbers, garlic, and turmeric.

12. Tomato Sushi

This takes just five steps, and the rice cooker does much of the work for you!

13. Banana ‘Nice Creajm’ Sundae

Because sometimes you need ice cream for lunch. (At least, this one’s on the healthy side!)

14. Rainbow Zucchini Rolls

These rolls are easily made heartier by adding Tofurky Slow Roasted Chick’n.

15. Rad Rainbow Raw Pad Thai

When you see the word “rainbow” in a recipe title, there are probably a lot of veggies in it. We love rainbows.

16. Heat-Free Lentil and Walnut Tacos

This taco recipe features potent flavors such as sun-dried tomatoes, chili powder, and cumin.

17. Southwest Salad with Creamy Chili-Lime Dressing

If you nuke the vegan chicken strips, you can avoid turning on the stove.

18. Strawberry Chia Watermelon Smoothie

This sounds delicious right about now.

This recipe subs avocado for cheese, and you also have the option of using vegan mozzarella.
