25 Quick Vegan Dinner Recipes Made in 30 Minutes or Less

Let me set the stage. You just wrapped up a looooong day. You’re tired. You’re hungry. You head to the kitchen, look in the fridge to decide what you want to make for dinner, then immediately close the fridge and decide to order take out instead.

We’ve all been there! At the end of those busy, exhausting days, the very last thing you want to do is spend an hour or so in the kitchen working on dinner. Even those of us who find cooking to be enjoyable and meditative can’t stand the idea of standing over the stove some nights. And as much as I love a good take out night, it gets expensive when it becomes a habit.

So in an effort to save you some time (and money!) I’ve rounded up my 25 favorite quick vegan dinner recipes! These are the vegan meal ideas that will totally save you on those wild days where you come home feeling totally spent. All 25 of these recipes are 30 minutes meals that you can get on the table even on the busiest of days.
