This post features 20 of the best vegan cast iron skillet recipes including dinners and desserts for easy, cheap, and healthy meals. From hearty dinners to glorious desserts, these skillet recipes could be the perfect vegan camping food for this summer – but are equally perfect for a super quick weeknight dinner.
No exaggeration, I probably use my cast iron skillet at least once a day – often twice. It is, hands-down, the best investment you could make in kitchenware. My mum gifted me my Le Creuset cast iron skillet a couple of years ago now, and even with so much use, it’s still going strong – and should for years to come.
Cast iron skillets need very little oil, are non-stick, and are very easy to maintain for years and years, provided you treat them properly. This includes washing them after every use with hot water and a non-abrasive scrub pad with minimal soap – never put your skillet in the dishwasher!
The best part is that skillets can be used interchangeably on the hob and in the oven, so the number of recipes you can make with just this one pan are endless. I’m all about minimal ingredients, simple recipes, and big flavours, so skillet recipes tend to be my go-to for weeknights. I also love the idea of taking a skillet and cooking a proper, hearty vegan meal when camping, too.
Below, I’ve collected the best vegan cast iron skillet recipes on the internet. This list ranges from hearty meatballs and mac & cheese to an indulgent chocolate skillet cookie and fresh berry crumbles. Most of these recipes are one-pan only, too – so minimal washing up and maximum flavour is the real theme here!
