10 Spinach Recipes To Try – Vegetarian & Vegan

spinach recipe green kitchen stories

I’ve got 10 spinach recipes for you to try today that are vegetarian and vegan friendly.  

I’m in a bit of a spinach kick at the moment. And as spinach is pretty much in season all year round in the UK it’s a great sustainable ingredient to have in your kitchen, whether it’s fresh or frozen.

10 Vegan and Vegetarian Spinach Recipes

There’s so much good stuff here, what vegetarian or vegan spinach recipe will you try first?

One-Pot Spaghetti

spinach recipes

One of my absolute favourite things to make with spinach is Anna Jones’ one pot spaghetti.  The recipe says to use kale but I make it with spinach (and often throw in a big handful of basil) and it is delicious.  If I had to eat this spaghetti every day for a year I’d be quite happy!  Omit the hard cheese and it’s vegan too.

Spanish Chickpea and Spinach Stew

This Spanish chickpea and spinach stew from Lazy Cat Kitchen is vegan and gluten-free friendly, and is definitely on my list of things to cook.

Spinach and White Bean Soup

This spinach and white bean soup sounds like a deliciously comforting bowl of soup.  Vegan friendly too, it’s ready in only 30 minutes.

Spinach and Quinoa Patties

Green Kitchen Stories never let me down.  I’ve got two of their cookbooks and everything I’ve made from the books have been 100% delicious.  Another great spinach recipe, these spinach and quinoa patties will be my next Green Kitchen Stories make, I reckon.

Spinach and Artichoke Galette

I’m not 100% confident in the kitchen and the idea of pastry does intimidate me a little, but gosh, this spinach and artichoke galette looks pretty darned good.  We’ve got artichokes growing in our allotment (if the pesky slugs don’t get there first) so this might be something to make when it comes to artichoke harvest time.

Spinach, Beetroot and Quinoa Salad

Whenever the weather warms up I always crave salad.  This spinach, beetroot, and quinoa salad looks divine.

Pear, Ginger and Spinach Smoothie

I haven’t really jumped on the whole smoothie/juicing bandwagon that’s been going on for a good few years now, and I’m not too sure how I feel about spinach served in a drink.  I would be willing to give this pear, ginger, and spinach smoothie a go though, for a different take on a spinach recipe.

Three Cheese Spinach Pizza

If pizza is more your thing then swap the Parmesan cheese for a vegetarian hard cheese and get making this three cheese spinach pizza!

Carmelised Onion, Spinach and Avocado Quesadillas

Baked Eggs

Finally, if you’re in the mood to brunch then try these baked eggs with mushrooms, potatoes, spinach and Gruyere cheese.  It’s made using only one pan which is always the best kind of recipe. Less washing up to do!

Vegetarian Breakfast Ideas For A Great Start

Are you a vegetarian stuck in a toast or cereal rut?  Never fear!  I’ve put together 10 delicious vegetarian breakfast ideas to shake up your routine and repertoire!

I know I’m certainly in need of extending my vegetarian breakfast repertoire.  In our house, it’s mostly cereal, porridge, toast, bagels, or fruit and yoghurt.  Not exactly exciting stuff.  BUT I have big plans to change this, at least at the weekends anyway!  Workdays are hard when you’re rushing to get yourself and a little one fed, dressed, and out the door before 7:30 am so I’ll give myself a pass on those days for now!

Delicious Vegetarian Breakfast Ideas

After a little search, I’ve found some amazing vegetarian breakfast ideas that I have added to my “to make” list!  Let me share my favourites:

Kale, Feta and Egg Toast

vegetarian breakfast ideas

This kale feta egg toast recipe from Well Plated looks really tasty.  It’s also a   great seasonal winter veggie breakfast, as kale is in season and in its prime in winter.

Avocado and Tomato Toast with Balsamic Dressing

veggie breakfast ideas

Keeping with the things on toast theme, this avocado and tomato toast with balsamic dressing from Blissful Basil looks delicious and straightforward!

Egg Baked in Avocado

Spinach Potato Pancakes

These spinach potato pancakes from Veggie Staples would make a great savoury breakfast.  And as well as being a great vegetarian breakfast idea, they are also vegan and gluten free.

Baked Carrot Cake Oatmeal

I have made this baked carrot cake oatmeal from Green Kitchen Stories and it was Yum (with a capital Y!).  It’s also a good twist on conventional porridge.  I found the recipe makes a lot of oatmeal (A LOT!).  Therefore,  you might want to halve the ingredients for a more manageable sized dish!

Pumpkin Anytime Squares

vegetarian breakfast ideas - breakfast barsI haven’t tried these pumpkin anytime squares from Oh She Glows, but I would like to give them a go!  They sound like they would be ideal to bake ahead in a batch and keep in a tin to grab for a quick vegetarian breakfast on the go.

Another one from me, this porridge with cinammon spiced roast plum is a great autumnal warmer.

Muffin Tin Omelettes

Finally, in the last of my vegetarian breakfast ideas, I’m really keen to try out these muffin tin omelettes, from Hearth & Homefront.  They look like they would freeze well to eat later, which would be really handy on those mornings when we’re rushing out the house!
