This list has 65+ DELICIOUS Vegan Dinner recipes including vegan sides, vegan instant pot recipes, vegan crockpot recipes, vegan pasta recipes, vegan soups and MORE!

After over 7 years of blogging, I have a great base of AMAZING recipes on my site and I figured that it was finally time that I start doing some roundups. Since vegan food recipes have been my favorite to create lately, I thought that I would start with a Vegan Dinner Recipes roundup.

I broke this list down into categories based on what I had quite a few of. Turns out, I have a LOT of great vegan soup, vegan taco, and vegan pasta recipes so I created a categories for each of those. There’s also a separate category for vegan side dishes with everything falling under the main category of “Vegan Main Dishes”. I hope that you’ll find some new favorite vegan recipes from this list! Please let me know in the comments which are your favorite!

All of the recipe titles, as well as the photos themselves, are clickable and direct to the recipe!

Vegan Dinner Recipes: Vegan Stir Fry

  • Author: Brita
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 2 large meals 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


This Tempeh Stir fry is so easy to make and PACKED with flavor! It’s one of my all time favorite quick and delicious vegan dinner recipes!


  • 8 ounces of tempeh, cubed into bite sized pieces
  • Sesame ginger stir fry sauce
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 cups of green beans, ends trimmed
  • 2 cups of carrots, thinly sliced (or baby carrots)


  1. If you haven’t already done so, make the sauce according to THIS recipe.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add in the tempeh and cook for about 8 minutes, flipping every few minutes so that all sides are browned. Turn the heat to low and toss in 2 tablespoons of the sauce and continue to cook until the tempeh is fully coated in the sauce and it has started to caramelize a bit. Remove to a clean plate and return skillet to the heat.
  3. Turn the heat back to medium, and add in the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and toss together the green beans and the carrots in the skillet. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add in a few tablespoons of water and place a lid on the skillet to steam the veggies a bit until tender. About another 5 minutes. Remove the lid and take out any excess water.
  4. Pour in the remaining sauce as well as the tempeh. Toss to coat everything and continue to cook until sauce thickens and everything is nicely coated in the sauce. Cook about 2-3 more minutes.
  5. Serve over rice or quinoa and ENJOY!! Also great on its own!


This can also be made with firm/ extra firm tofu! Simply press it and cut into cubes and use in place of the tempeh.
