This list has over 30 vegan dinner ideas – make any of these delicious vegan recipes ahead of time for a healthy, quick, and easy meal that won’t break the bank!

Whether you’re vegan or not, we can all agree: cutting down our meat intake as a planet can only be a good thing.

Eating a more plant-based diet is a fantastic way to save money, eat more vegetables, and reduce your impact on the environment.

What makes a good vegan dinner recipe?

When I look for inspiration for vegan dinner ideas, I look for recipes that include:

  • A protein source (i.e. tofu, tempeh, beans, legumes, nuts, or a meat-substitute)
  • A large portion of vegetables (obviously, these are good for your health – but more vegetables will also keep you fuller for longer!)
  • A carbohydrate source (i.e. potato, a grain, sometimes pasta)
  • A delicious sauce to tie everything together – not essential, but it definitely helps!

A good vegan dinner recipe provides a balanced, nutritious meal that leaves you feeling satisfied but not over-full.
