Vegan Dinner Recipes You'll Want to Make Over and Over
Easy Vegan Dinner Recipes
The stereotype that vegans have to just eat salads is far from the truth. It's totally doable to go vegan, even if you love eating out or are a bodybuilder. And newly-minted vegans can find alternatives to any of their old favorites thanks to versatile ingredients like tempeh, jackfruit, and cashews. To get you started, we've compiled a few of the countless vegan dinner recipes from around the web. Whether you're a longtime vegan looking for new dinner ideas or an omnivore who wants to cut back on your animal consumption, check out these creative recipes.
Best Vegan Lasagna
Lasagna is always a good idea, and you don't have to opt for vegetable lasagna unless you want to. This recipe incorporates faux meat to stand in for beef and vegan cheese to get that toasted top layer.
Sweet Potato Bowl
You probably heard about the sushi burrito craze, but onigirazu also belongs on your radar. Instead of a circular roll, they're formed into a rectangle–a sushi sandwich, if you will. Crispy tofu is the star of this vegan take on the dish.
Butternut Squash Green Curry Rice Noodle Bowls
Trying to find healthy vegan dinner recipes to keep on file? Testing out curry recipes to find your favorite is a great starting point. This one is suited for meal prep and has an optional low-carb modification.
Crispy Roasted Gnocchi With Garlic Mushrooms
Gnocchi traditionally contains eggs and flour, but this version is both vegan and gluten-free. With a homemade pesto, it's a few levels up from boxed pasta and canned sauce, but it won't take too much effort.
Vegan Meatball Parm Soup
If you're someone who sops up your pasta sauce with bread at the end of a meal, you'll fully appreciate this use of a bread bowl. This recipe is basically the soup version of a meatball sub, with faux meatballs and gooey cheese. (Yeh, remember what we said about vegans not just eating salads...)
Vegan Coconut Crusted Chicken Sandwich
Vegan Lentil Loaf
Down Home BBQ Burger
Taking the extra time to make your own veggie burger blend rather than relying on a frozen patty can pay off. Try this burger when you want to DIY and are craving a classic BBQ flavor.
