Looking for new weeknight plant-based dinner ideas? These delightful vegan recipes are beyond delicious and come together in a snap. From crispy falafel patties to slurpy soba noodles, these dishes are sure to leave you super satisfied.
Baked Falafel Sliders With Tabbouleh and Tahini Sauce
You’ve probably heard of falafel before — but what about falafel sliders? They are perfectly crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside and they’re shallow fried (or even baked) to make the process easier. Serve them on flat breads with tangy tabbouleh salad and a lot of tahini sauce, and you have the perfect vegan dinner.
Easy Vegan Spaghetti Bolognese
Perked up with a bit of balsamic vinegar, this comforting tomato sauce benefits from a slow simmer, resulting in a dish that’s every bit as rich, hearty and flavourful as traditional bolognese.
Easy Spicy Lentil and Vegetable Curry
Craving a bit of spice? This flavourful curry features scotch bonnets for a welcome kick of heat that’s nicely balanced out with creamy coconut milk and a hearty base of lentils and veggies. Pair it with rice or pita for a satisfying vegan dinner.
Brothy, Herbaceous White Beans
This super simple recipe packs a major flavour punch! It’s part stew, part dip, and the creamy, garlicky flavours pair perfectly with a piece of toasty sourdough for a fast and hearty vegan meal.
Super Easy Sesame Soba Noodles With Kale and Edamame
Soba noodles are quick to cook and they work well at room temperature, making them a natural choice for a quick or make-ahead vegan dinner on a busy weeknight.
Sweet Potato and Black Bean-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms
Grilled portobello mushrooms are the star of this filling vegan dish that comes together in just 30 minutes. With a nourishing filling of sweet potatoes and black beans, you’ll be hooked on the satisfying mix of textures.
Vegan Middle Eastern Eggplant Casserole
This eggplant casserole is a classic Middle Eastern dish common in Iraq. Although typically made with layers of kofta (beef patties), eggplant, potatoes, onions, peppers and tomatoes, we skip the kofta here and bake up the veggies using the same method. The result? A light and deeply flavourful vegan casserole that makes for great leftovers, too.
Vegan Zucchini Ramen Noodle Soup
This extremely slurpable dinner is low carb, packed with protein, and super delicious. Ramen noodles are swapped for spiralized zucchini to give you an extra dose of veggies.
Coconut Crusted Tempeh Skewers with Mango Salsa
New to tempeh? This simple skewer recipe is a great place to start. The coconut provides a nice crisp coating and the mango salsa adds a refreshing, sweet and zesty component that’ll have you hooked on the plant-based protein in no time.
Vegan Za’atar Manaeesh
Lebanese za’atar flatbread (AKA manaeesh) is typically served for breakfast alongside a hot cup of tea, but we love the idea of topping it with your favourite vegan cheese, veggies, or plant-based protein for a heartier breakfast-for-dinner.
