10 Vegan Meals to make for Father’s Day (Breakfast, Main & Dessert Ideas!)
With Father's Day right around the corner, here's a list of breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert ideas to make in celebrate and to thank your papa (or any father figure in your life - or yourself!)
Jackfruit & TVP Carnitas
I love making tacos using jackfruit. I wouldn't say it's a meat substitute as jackfruit is a fruit and doesn't contain a lot of protein but the texture it creates is a perfect substitute for any recipe calling for shredded meat. To add a little more protein to this recipe, I paired the jackfruit with TVP (textured vegetable protein), which is a soy product that high in protein, fiber and has no fat.
3 Wrap Ideas for Lunch
Making lunches for work seems like a chore at times. However, everytime I do take the time to prepare a delicious meal for lunch, my future self would thank my past self for making it. Always. These wraps are some of my favourites to make for lunch since they are easy to prepare and taste amazing.
Blueberry Banana Pancakes
his is my go-to breakfast when I take time to make breakfast and want a break from my typical toasts and peanut butter. These pancakes are the perfect weekend breakfast and paired with a cup of tea, it's a great way to start your day.
Summer parties and backyard BBQs are going to start any time now as the warmer days are finally almost upon us. These Cauliflower Bites are perfect to bring to a party as finger foods or make as appetizers.
Banana Bread (or muffins!)
The thing I love about this recipe is how versatile it is. You can simply bake it in a loaf pan and BAM! - you got some good banana bread! Or you can make 12 delicious vegan banana muffins. Yum!
3 Ingredients Vegan Truffles
These truffles are so simple to make but still are indulgent and rich. All you need is dark chocolate, coconut milk and one or more tablespoon of maple syrup or agave. You can make these on Valentine's day (or any day of the year!) within an hour!
Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato & Sage Pasta
Nothing screams autumn quite like a bowl of pasta flavoured with squash. Pumpkin can easily be substituted for the butternut squash as well as the sweet potato. However, I love the flavour and texture that sweet potato adds to the dish so remove at your own discretion!
