5 Vegan Dinner Recipes

Today I thought I’d share with you five vegan dinner recipes that I found on Pinterest.   These recipes look so delicious!  I know that people say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and should be the largest meal of the day, but for me I take dinner over breakfast any day!

These vegan Mediterranean Baked Sweet Potatoes from the Minimalist Baker look so delicious and so filling!

Likewise, this 30 minute vegan coconut curry, also from The Minimalist Baker, looks so tasty.

I had something similar to this Vegan Portobello Wellington from Virtually Vegan Mama at a restaurant a few months ago and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.  Will need to give this a go!

vegan pho soupThe recipe for this 30 minute Pho soup (on Oh My Veggies) isn’t vegan, but if you simply switch the butter for vegan butter then it’s all vegan!  Make sure you buy rice or soba noodles rather than egg noodles – if in doubt check the back of the packet.

vegan enchiladas

These vegan mushroom and spinach enchiladas, made with vegan mozzarella, from Binary Vegan, are definitely a recipe to try!

If you like these vegan dinner recipes then I’ve put together a vegan cooking Pinterest board that you might like too:

Fruit and Vegetables in Season in April

fruit vegetables in season in april

Aah, April!  We’re finally out of winter and have a full month of spring ahead of us – yippee!  British seasonal fruit and vegetables are still a bit thin on the ground this month, but there are still a few old favourite fruit and vegetables in season in April to keep us going through the month.  And there’s the addition of some spring delights – radishes, cucumbers, spring onions and even some herbs this month to cheer up our plates!  And, finally this forager’s favourite – wild nettles!  I’m planning on getting busy with the nettles this month – hopefully I’ll be able to share my nettle makes with you this month.

If you’ve not tried nettle before, it’s similar in taste to spinach, and once you boil it there’s no danger of stinging – I promise!!  Give it a go this month – maybe start with this wild nettle pesto recipe?  And let me know how you get on!

As before, I’ve included all of the information below in an free printable, without images, to make life easier for you when you’re out shopping for seasonal produce, or meal planning.  Grab the free fruit and vegetables in season in April printable here!
