Easy Vegan Recipes to Impress Your Non-Vegan Friends

A vegan diet must not be full of dull, flavorless food. It can be incredibly delicious!

Try these easy vegan recipes to impress your non-vegan Friends and show them how tasty and nutritious plant foods can be.

This wholesome breakfast is easy to make and packed with irresistible, good-for-you ingredients.

Vegan Recipes

Chickpea Burgers

Chickpeas are the star of this veggie burger that’s naturally vegan, gluten-free, and healthy. It skips the need to saute the onions and garlic as they cook within the patty. Thanks to the zingy sun-dried tomatoes and fresh parsley, it’s also flavorful.

The mixture can make six medium-sized patties or even four larger ones. One of the quickest and easy vegan recipes, it does dry out the longer it sits in the fridge, so preparation is advised. It can be frozen raw or cooked to make it more convenient.

These deliciously zingy veggie burgers are so quick and straightforward to make. You’ll need a food processor to chop the ingredients together, but that’s all there is. They’re perfect for topping whole wheat burger buns with creamy guac, fresh tomato salsa, or green salad. Or try mixing some buffalo sauce into the patty for a spicy kick.

Loaded Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are the perfect weeknight dinner canvas—a nutrient-rich food that can be stuffed and made into any number of dishes. These Mexican-style stuffed sweet potatoes are ideal for a light, filling meal that’s also budget-friendly and easy to prepare ahead of time.

Start by baking the sweet potatoes. Scrub them well, pat dry, and use a fork to poke several holes throughout each potato (this will help it bake faster and prevent it from bursting). Ensure the potatoes are baked until they have reached a point of tenderness. You can confirm that they are ready to be mashed when they can be easily mashed.

Prepare the topping mix and creamy sauce while the potatoes are baking. When the potatoes are ready, spoon in the toppings and finish with plenty of sauce and a squeeze of lime juice. If you like, swap out the cotija cheese for queso fresco or pepper jack for an added kick of spice.

Avocado Tacos

Avocado tacos are the perfect meat-free way to celebrate Taco Tuesday! Crispy breaded avocado slices add texture and flavor reminiscent of a fish taco, while the rest of the ingredients make it 100% plant-based. Served with spiced black beans, pico de gallo, and the refreshing crunch of romaine lettuce, this recipe is sure to impress your friends and family.

You can use any tortilla to make these vegan tacos, but we recommend corn tortillas for added nutrition. Be sure to use a fully ripe avocado; test for ripeness by giving the avocado a gentle squeeze. If your avocado is not ripe, it will have a slimy texture and take longer to bake.

Instructions for Taco Assembly:

  1. Top each corn tortilla with a handful of cabbage slaw, a few spoonfuls of warm pinto beans, 1-2 pieces of fried avocado, and the creamy cilantro sauce.
  2. Sprinkle some cotija cheese on top for garnish and serve.
  3. Storing leftover food in a sealed container that does not allow air to enter is recommended. This way, the food can last up to five days without spoiling.

Cinnamon Oatmeal

This cozy and balanced cinnamon oatmeal recipe is a winner when you want to start your day off right. Add nuts, seeds, or fresh fruit for a hearty, nutrient-packed breakfast. It’s also a great recipe to serve with a drizzle of maple syrup.

Using old-fashioned oats in this recipe ensures they retain shape when cooked in liquid. It allows for a nice creamy texture to the oatmeal. It is a simple dish that can be made in bulk ahead of time and enjoyed hot or cold.

If your non-vegan friends still need a vegan diet, this is a great way to show them how delicious and satisfying plant-based meals can be. Even if they’re not fully committed to going vegan, eating more plants will help improve their health and the planet’s.
