Top 50 BELOVED Vegan Dinner Recipes

Sharon Palmer

Whether you’re somewhat new to plant-based eating, or you’re an old pro, one thing’s for sure: You have an absolute favorite, most beloved vegan dinner. You know what I’m talking about; those dinner recipes you turn to time and time again. Maybe it’s the recipe you think of when you’ve got the blues. Or maybe you cook it up when you’re craving something comforting and reassuring. Or perhaps it’s your entire family’s favorite recipe on a Wednesday night (you know, the one they beg you to cook!). It could even be your prettiest, most uplifting recipe that gets you raves at potlucks. We all know what those recipes mean to us. They are the recipes that fuel our shopping lists, with must-have ingredients in our shopping carts each week. When you stand in front of your open fridge door, wondering what you’ll fix for dinner tonight, it’s the recipe your mind turns to. It always turns out so good. A few of my own beloved vegan dinner recipes include Spicy Lentil Tacos, Black Bean Corn Chili, and Curried Oat Bean Burgers. With that in mind, I asked some of my favorite bloggers to share their favorite recipes to create this awesome collection of 50 all-time favorite, tried-and-true, beloved, vegan dinner recipes. I can hardly wait to try each and every one!

Eat and Live Well,
