Spicy Vegan Dinner For Meals With A Kick
Love the tingle on your tongue that comes from eating spicy food? You’re right at home. Here are our favourite spicy vegan dinners for anyone that loves their dinners with a kick.
Using seasonal greens and a punchy, aromatic blend of onion, garlic and ginger, this stirfry is a great midweek meal. It comes together in half an hour, and in return, you’ll get a hot plate of spicy noodles packed with bold flavours. What’s not to love about that?
This pasta is a decadent and deeply flavourful dish that has a warming heat from the chilli flakes to keep spice lovers more than satisfied. The great thing about this is that you most likely have most of the ingredients needed to make this delightful number — so really there’s no excuse you’re not making this all the time seeing as it’s so tasty!
Thai red curry lovers, rejoice — because this vegan version is creamy, rich and deliciously spicy. With tofu soaking up the wonderful flavours and jammy red peppers, this dish is equal part drool-worthy and spicy. Be sure to pick a curry paste packed with chillis for the best result!
Move over buffalo wings — the buffalo cauli bites are tangy, spicy, and are here to take the top spot of deliciousness. If you’ve ever been left with a head of cauliflower at the end because you didn’t know what exactly you wanted to do with it, we’ve got the perfect recipe for you here. They’re also baked rather than fried, making them healthier without compromising on the fiery flavour of crunchy coating.
Tom yum is a classic hot and sour-style Thai soup and this vegan version definitely live up to the name thanks to a generous helping of chilli flakes. It’s perfectly balanced and deeply savoury, making it an ideal pick-me-up on colder days, or when you’re craving something that will provide a hit of spice you’re looking for.
This recipe makes it perfectly acceptable to have chips and dip for dinner, and we love guest planted recipe creator Jess Tatham for it. The dip is smoky, creamy and utterly delicious, using cashew as the based and seasoned with nutritional yeast for the full cheesy flavour, as well as spices, a helping of chilli and tomatoes and jalapenos. A comfort dish with a nice and warming amount of spice to it.
