Favorite Vegan Family Dinners: 40 Recipes

Make dinner prep a breeze with these 40 Easy Vegan Family Dinners! From soup to salads to pasta and more, everyone will find something to enjoy. Kid-friendly but perfect for adults too!

Getting a delicious dinner on the table that satisfies everyone is a common pain point I hear from readers with families. Between picky kids and some equally picky adults, pinpointing a “perfect” recipe can feel next to impossible. When you want your loved ones to eat well but also save time in the kitchen, a list of go-to family dinners is a lifesaver!

Today we’re rounding up 40 (yes, 40!) hearty and healthy plant-based recipes. What makes a perfect family meal? Customization.

How can I customize these family dinners?

Multiple components in these recipes can be swapped in and out to your family members tastes. As a bonus, many of these meals taste just as good with a portion omitted. Don’t care for green onions on Vegetable Lo Mein? Feel free to leave them off! Have a kid who doesn’t like spice? Feel free to make the Enchilada Casserole without jalapeños!

I also encourage you, when possible, to use what you already have in the pantry when prepping these meals. Multiple kinds of long pasta will work in the noodle recipes. Be sure to check out the comments of each post to see what other readers have tried.

I hope you enjoy this round up of easy family dinners. Please let me know in the comments which you’re trying first!
