The Best Vegan Dinners For Feeding All The Family
From quick delicious suppers to longer, rich and very rewarding dinners, here are some amazing must-make recipes that will undoubtedly be loved by all the family.
A mac and cheese is a classic that’s great for batch cooking and loved by kids and adults alike. This low-maintenance recipe uses vegan cheddar, butter and milk to create a bubbling, rich mac and cheese that’s like the original. A spoon of grainy mustard and some nutmeg give the dish a lift and zing that is super moreish — but that’s okay. As the recipe serves six people, who needs leftovers, anyway?
You can’t go wrong with a glossy, tangy tomato pasta. This recipe uses five ingredients (plus some olive oil and salt we assume you’ve got stashed in the kitchen) and takes only 20 minutes to make. It’s a classic recipe that everyone can appreciate all year long, and always makes for a great dinner to tuck into.
It doesn’t get more hearty than this vegan cottage pie. Creamy, smooth mashed potato is a unanimous comforting food, but it only gets better when soya mince cooked in a thick, rich tomato gravy is also added into the mix. It’s a family favourite and a dish that is perfect for sharing on a winter evening.
Potato on a pizza? Carbs on carbs? This is about as universally liked as it gets. It’s a great recipe to make and get the kids involved in too, but it's sure to suit the needs of all adults craving some good old comfort food too.
A community confession spawned this fantastic recipe — a vegan ‘chicken’ curry that all the family will enjoy. This tikka masala is rich and creamy, but mild, making it a great curry to share with the kids and with the adults at the table who aren’t great with spice (you know who you are).
