I’ve shared several vegan dishes in the past, but today I wanted to share more with you! If you are curious about Plant-Based Recipes or are interested in making a Plant-Based Meal plan … this is a great place to start!
Ps- These are great plant-based recipes for beginners because they are easy to make & come from ingredients that are easy to find.
There are so many benefits to eating a whole-food, plant-based diet. The more fruits and vegetables that we can add to our diet, the better we will feel! Eating a diet rich in plant proteins, and low in processed foods is going to help us to be healthier overall with so many benefits including a lower risk of heart disease! I love finding dinner recipes, to add to our vegan diet, like the ones I’m sharing today.
Vegan Main Dishes
Many of these vegan meals are protein-rich plant-based recipes. They include recipes from simple foods like sweet potatoes & black beans, to more elaborate recipes like stir fry with essential amino acids. Once you are making these plant-based diet recipes more often, they’ll all become second nature. The great part is that even the plant-based dinner recipes that have multiple ingredients are still easy vegan recipes that anyone can make!
Vegan Meat Substitutes
Instead of relying on animal protein for our protein, many plant-based meals consist of plant-based protein. These recipes, below, are my go-to vegan dinner recipes. There are many recipes in this list that call for meat, but I have been able to use vegetarian meat substitutes.
Here are some Vegan Meat Alternatives:
- Beyond Meat
- Ground Beef-Free Mix
- Meatless Meatballs
- Chicken-Less Nuggets
- Sweet Earth Awesome Grounds
- Sweet Earth Chik’n
Vegan Protein Powders (Plant-Based Protein Powder)
Although these recipes listed below are all easy to make, I will have a vegan protein shake if I’m in a rush. I usually use Vanilla Pea Milk in place of cow milk, but many of my friends like soy milk or almond milk. Here are some that I’ve tried & have liked in the past:
- Amazing Grass – it’s my favorite plant-based, vegan protein powder), if I’m in a rush.
- Orgain Protein Powder
- Vega Proteins & Greens
- Garden of Life Protein Powder
