27 Incredible Vegan Dinner Recipes to Put on Your Menu ASAP

Protein-packed vegan dinner recipes that are perfect for any day of the week! These healthy recipes are guaranteed to impress vegans and meat-eaters.

If you can’t tell I’ve been on a major veggie kick lately and I’m definitely not mad about it. The #AKSaladChallenge is in full force (if you haven’t signed up yet, do it here!) and I’m loving all things fresh & flavorful for spring. Wanna get some more veggies in with me? Say hello to my 27 incredible vegan dinner recipes.

These recipes cover pretty much anything you could ever want in a satisfying dinner. We’re talkin’ burgers, chili, stir fry, curries, and even dinner-worthy nachos.

Trust me, my vegan nachos are everything.

I love taking traditionally meat-heavy dishes and putting a vegan twist on them with different proteins, spices and flavors. These deliciously savory recipes pack plenty of fiber and protein, so I guarantee you won’t be missing the meat. Plus, most of them are drizzled + tossed in some amazing vegan sauces – you might just want to dip your whole life in them. SO GOOD.

Pick a few new vegan favorites to put on your Meatless Monday menu this week! I guarantee you’ll impress the whole family, your significant other, or even your roommate.

Enjoy, xo!
