Where did the weekend go? Serious question. I enjoyed a few too many heavy meals over the past couple of days, so I thought we could lighten up a little with my favorite vegan dinners. Don’t worry, though! You won’t find lots of tofu or meat substitutes here—just wholesome meals made with protein-rich whole grains, beans and fresh produce.
For even more vegan recipes, check out my complete vegan recipe index. Please check the recipe notes on each recipe because some require a small substitution or omission to be vegan (like use agave nectar instead of honey or omit the optional feta).
If you make any of these recipes, please snap a photo and share it with me on Instagram. Be sure to tag it #cookieandkate so I don’t miss it! I want to see! Here are some more roundups you might appreciate: 14 simple weeknight dinners, 12 soups for cold days, 12 favorite kale salads and my top 10 vegetarian Mexican recipes. Enjoy!
No. 1: Curried Coconut Quinoa and Greens with Roasted Cauliflower
Gluten free, too
“Delicious and so full of flavor! The coconut milk in the quinoa was divine. My husband, a meat-eater probably said, ‘This is so good!” about a bazillion times as we were eating dinner. He also mentioned how everyone should be a vegetarian for at least a week so they understand what flavors are instead of just throwing salt on meat and calling it a meal. I’ll say this was a big win.” – Tricia
