Vegan dinner recipes for the family

22 Dec 2022 • 2 min read


Trying to reduce your meat intake? Or does your family follow the vegan lifestyle? It can be tricky to know what to cook for everyone.

So to give you some inspiration, we’ve listed some of our absolute favourite vegan dinner recipes for the whole family to enjoy.

Vegetable chilli

There’s a reason chilli is so popular with families. It’s nutritious, easy to cook and super flavoursome – and this vegan vegetable chilli recipe is no different. It’s also ideal for batch cooking, meaning you’ll get plenty of leftovers to see you through the week.

Goes great with: Roasted sweet potato or wholegrain rice

Vegan macaroni cheese

Craving some creamy, cheesy deliciousness? Mac and cheese, we’re looking at you! This vegan alternative offers the same tantalising tanginess as it’s traditional counterpart, just without the dairy.

Goes great with: Garden peas

Vegan pizza

Want to treat the family to a tasty bit of grub? Pizza is always a winner. And now vegans don’t have to miss out on the fun! This vegan pizza recipe is the perfect option, as the sundried tomatoes, vegan pesto and pine nuts give it an added boost of flavour – and it’s also gluten-free!

Goes great with: Mixed leaf salad

Vegan burger

Keeping up the theme of vegan treats, burgers are another crowd-pleaser. This recipe is loaded with tasty toppings too, with vegan dairy free cheese alternative, tomatoes, gherkins, lettuce and yes – sauerkraut! 

Goes great with: Homemade chips

Vegan nut roast

For something comforting on a cosy Sunday night, we’d have to recommend this vegan nut roast recipe. It’s packed with a wide range of nutritious ingredients, from celery and mushrooms to pepper and red lentils.  

Jackfruit chilli

If you’d prefer something with a meatier like texture, this jackfruit version is the way to go. Rich, smoky and with a little bit of spice, simply throw all of your prepped ingredients in a pan and let it simmer away!

Goes great with: Fluffy white rice

Vegan cheesy spinach pasta

Fancy a meal similar to macaroni cheese but with a nutritious twist? Try our Vegan cheesy spinach pasta recipe. This is especially great if you’re short on time – speedy and delicious.

Goes great with: Focaccia

Vegan lasagne

Lasagne is a classic family friendly dish – and our recipe is suitable for vegans, veggies and meat-eaters alike! This should hit the spot.
