The world is still battling the coronavirus pandemic and many restaurants in major cities have either shut or are offering limited takeaway services to reduce contact with others to curb the spread of the virus. In Hong Kong, while most eateries are still operating, health officials have reiterated the importance of social distancing, and many of us may be working or learning from home during this period. It’s no surprise that most of us are spending more time in our own kitchens…but you might be getting a little sick of doing all the dishes. So we’re here to help with 12 super easy, healthy, 100% plant-based family recipes that can be whipped up with just one pan, pot or tray!
