Top 10 vegan lunches/dinners on my blog!

I have been blogging on here for about two and a half years now, and that means a whole bunch of recipes. Some have turned out great, whereas some may need a bit of an update now, haha. And that is one of the things I am currently going to work on… looking back on some recipes and updating. Such as measurements, seasoning, descriptions as well. So in the future there may  be some updated recipes rather than “new” recipes.

But when looking back I realised that I have a lot of super delicious recipes, and a few of them I make on repeat at home. Of course, which meals I prefer eating also depends on what season it is. In winter and autumn, I prefer soups, stews and warm dishes. Whereas in summer I prefer “Lighter” dishes such as salads, eggplant aubergine, tofu fish fingers, pasta salads etc

This post will focus just on lunch/dinner recipes, and not any snacks, breakfasts or desserts. But I do have a post coming up with all my dessert recipes, which you can save for when you want to make a sweet dessert.

So here are my top 10 recipes which I think you should all try, haha. And don’t forget to let me know if you have any recipes from my blog which you love!

 

Sweet potato pizza crust. This is infact one of my most popular recipes and most created ones…. And I can say, there is a reason for that. You can also see when I make this recipe in an Instagram video, here.

Buffalo cauliflower wings. I love these so much, and I would make them on a weekly basis if cauliflower was cheaper, haha. Note, it does work with frozen cauliflower which you have defrosted, but fresh cauliflower does taste best.  I have different variations of this recipe: BBQ cauliflower wings, sesame cauliflower wings, airfryed cauliflower wings

3 bean lentil and sweet potato chilli – Aside from the sweet potato crust this is in tired place with my most created and loved recipe. It is what I would call a “go to student-meal prep” dish. It is cheap to make, you can make a huge amount, works great to freeze and is so delicious. You can vary which beans and seasoning you use. I do also recommend you use sweet potato instead of regular potato as it – in my opinion – tastes best, but it is fine to use regular white potato, it is cheaper then as well.

BBQ chickwheat – I have tried making seitan many times before and it has never really worked for me… but each time I make this recipe it turns out so good! Of course, it takes about 2+ hours to make, meaning that it may not be one of those dishes you just “throw together” on a whim. However, you can make a huge batch and freeze in, and then you have your cheap protein source for a while. For those of you who don’t know, seitan – which is made from gluten, is infact high in protein. Of course, if you have a gluten allergy or intolerance then it is not an option for you.

Vegan “meat” stew – This recipe/meal has fooled many meateaters into thinking they are eating meat. It is so similar to a typical “meat” stew…. though what really adds that meaty texture is Oumph!, which is a soybased fake meat alternative. It has just the right texture. So it won’t work to switch for example tofu or a lighter fake meat, however it may work to use seitan instead.

Red lentil and vegetable lasagne: This meal was one which i just threw together one evening when filming a “my followers decide what i eat in a day” challenge, where lasagne was choosen as my dinner. I created lasagne just using what i had at home and this was the very delicious result!! I would definitely recommend you make this, not to mention that it works great for meal prep and you can make the lasagne directly in glass lunch boxes so you have portion lasagne!

Pasta with pea pesto – This pea pesto can be made in many different variations. I.e adding avocado, adding tofu, adding nutritional yeast, using basil or spinach….  But the base is peas, oil and then adding either spinach, fresh basil, tofu or all of them! It turns out so good and the peas give this dish extra protein.

Eggplant schnitzel – For years I said I didn’t like aubergine… that was because I had one tried making “aubergine pizza” which was a complete disaster, and after that I was sort of scarred and not willing to try aubergine again. But then last summer I decided to give it a try again… and then I tried making eggplant schnitzel and I am hooked. The key is to cut them thin, salt them so that some of the moisture is sucked out, this makes them super crispy!

Tofu fries & BBQ tofu Two recipes in one here… well because they are both tofu and they are both delicious. The tofu fries are more like a snack, or can work great in a salad or in a baguette! This BBQ tofu is one of my favourites and works so great just as it is or part of a salad, or with some noodles or why not use it as your “Burger” instead of meat or halloumi?

Sweet potato and peanut butter stew   This meal is combining all of my favourites into one meal… sweet potato, peanut butter, sundried tomatoes, peanuts…. what is not to love? If you are allergic to peanut butter this would work great with almond butter as well 🙂 Also a great meal to make a huge batch and eat as your mealprep along with some rice!
