15 Easy Vegan Dinners Ideas for Weekdays

Hello, Friends! Read to rock Friday!? :)

Today, I decided to share give chicken some break and share with you round up of few of favorite vegetarian vegan dinner recipes. These dinner I have not just shared on blog, but are very regular in my weekday menu.

We love vegan dinner for weekdays. Or I should say, vegan and easy to cook. Even though we are not vegetarian/vegans but a few days in week we don't eat meat and follow a vegetarian regime. Most of Indian every-day curries are not just vegetarian but also vegan too. So, this regime helps us keep our health-goals in check and I got share healthy load of recipes with you. :) Not just curries, I even make pastas and grilled vegan dinners with hearty veggies like soy tofu, chickpeas and cauliflower.

Most of these dinner ideas are easy to prepare, a few also freeze pretty well. I have included a comment next to the recipe, sharing important tips to make homemade weekday dinner even more easier!

Note: One or 2 of recipes below use yogurt (not vegan) or honey, as condiment or as cream-substitute. For complete vegan meal, replace yogurt with vegan alternatives such as coconut cream, cashew cream or vegan almond yogurt. Replace honey with agave syrup.

Sp print your favorite recipes for coming week's menu. And let's eat more healthy!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Cheers! -Savita
