Vegan dinner recipes can range from spicy curries to comforting stews, and these satisfying vegan recipes and evening meals ideas are some of our favourites…
Veganism is becoming increasingly popular, with more of us than ever opting for a diet that contains no meat, fish, eggs or dairy.
If you are vegan yourself, or have any vegan friends or family, you may be in need of some inspiration and different vegan dinner recipes to help make easy and nutritious evening meals that will go down a treat with vegans and meat eaters alike.
Vegan food can be so vibrant and delicious. As well as the obvious fruits and vegetables, a vegan diet can include a range of grains, pulses, nuts, and speciality vegan products such as seitan and tofu.

A coconut milk or tomato-based curry is a vegan dinner that the whole family will love. The best bit about a curry is the richly spiced sauce, so you won’t even miss the meat. Serve with basmati rice, poppadoms, and mango chutney for the ultimate vegan feast.

Pie is a great option for vegan dinners as most store bought pastry is vegan – just make sure not to use the all butter varieties! There are so many different pie fillings to choose from, such as chestnuts, meaty mushrooms or even a spiced curry filling. We love this Mediterranean inspired filo pie that is a great option for summer lunches or buffets.
