5 Vegan Dinner Ideas

Today I thought I’d share with you five vegan dinner ideas, in case you are looking for some Veganuary inspiration, or are just looking to reduce your meat consumption (no judgement here).

I know that people say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and therefore should be the largest meal of the day.  However, for me, I take dinner over breakfast any day!

Delicious Vegan Dinner Ideas

Here are five vegan dinner ideas that I have bookmarked to make.  Do also share your favourites with me!

Mediterranean Baked Sweet Potatoes

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

30 Minute Vegan Coconut Curry

Likewise, this 30-minute vegan coconut curry, also from The Minimalist Baker, looks so tasty.  I’ve bookmarked this one as an easy midweek meal that comes together quickly.

Vegan Portobello Wellington

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

30 Minute Pho Soup

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.  And if soup is your thing, then I have a ton of other soup recipes this way.

Mushroom and Spinach Enchiladas

These vegan mushroom and spinach enchiladas from Binary Vegan are made with vegan mozzarella.  I can’t wait to give this vegan dinner idea a go!

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

Follow Moral Fibres’s board Vegan Cooking on Pinterest.

And for more inspiration, I’ve also got 25 vegan and vegetarian slow cooker recipes too!  Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about dessert.  Here are a simple vegan banana ice-cream recipe and six vegan cake recipes for you too!

And do also check out my vegan Quorn recipes.  This lime and coconut curry is a great midweek choice that comes together quickly in one pot, whilst this creamy Quorn in Mediterranean pesto sauce is another great vegan dinner option.

Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe

Love pumpkin pie spice and want to make your own? Try this easy pumpkin pie spice recipe.

Around this time of year, the American side of the internet goes absolutely crazy for pumpkin pie spice flavoured anything.  And I think that excitement spills over in the UK a little bit because of a certain coffee retailer.

The thing is, pumpkin pie spice isn’t readily available in the UK. And what’s more, I try really hard to avoid coffee chains that participate in tax avoidance schemes, such as Starbucks. I was therefore feeling a bit left out of the pumpkin party, so I had a go at making my own pumpkin pie spice recipe.  It turned out so good that I had to share my spice mix with you today!

Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe

Make this homemade pumpkin pie spice recipe in minutes to add a tasty autumn taste to a variety of recipes.
Prep Time 1 minute
Total Time 1 minute
Servings 1 Jar

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 2.5 Teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • 2 Teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
  • 1.5 Teaspoons Ground All Spice
  • 1 Teaspoons Ground Cloves

Instructions

  1. Measure out your ground spices.
  2. Mix them together.
  3. Store in an airtight jar
  4. Voila – home pumpkin pie spice!.

Yup, it really is that simple! And if you want to make more or less just scale up or down the recipe to suit .

If you’re looking for ideas on how to use your pumpkin pie spice mix I’d recommend sprinkling a little of your spice mix over hot chocolates or coffees as a good start!  Alternatively add to chocolate chip cookies, cakes, pies, pancakes, rice puddings, or muffins for a sweet and warming treat, with an autumnal flavour.

The spice mix tastes pretty amazing sprinkled over roasted vegetables, or on roasted butternut squash seeds (or even pumpkin seeds!).  For breakfast try stirring a spoon into your porridge.  Perhaps this porridge recipe in particular. The list is endless!

Placed in a pretty jar, the pumpkin pie spice mix would also make for a lovely gift for the keen baker.

There are so many ways to use this mix, that I can see just why so many Americans get their knickers in a twist over it!
