With recent research showing that 68% of families don’t sit together every night for dinner, we’re on a mission to bring back family dining.
The 1st November represents the start of World Vegan Month, and we thought we’d give vegan families some motivation to sit around the humble dining table together by picking our top five recipes.
Jamie Oliver’s Sweet potato and white bean chilli
Our research showed that 40% of parents say that work is the main reason for skipping family meal times, so we’ve gone with a quick and easy to make gem. With just a handful of ingredients and minimal preparation required, this vegan chilli is full of flavour and perfect for busy families.
BBC Good Food’s Vegan chickpea curry jacket potatoes
Restricted for time? Why don’t you prepare this one on a Sunday night and heat it up for tea after work on Monday? With a chickpea curry bursting with flavours and crispy baked sweet potatoes, this delicious recipe is easy to make and a warming, healthy option that is set to be a hit with the whole family.
The Vegan Society’s Mexican bean rice
This ultra-healthy rice dish is easy to make and comes bursting with smoky favours – like all good Mexican dishes should. With just two pots required and only 30 minutes cooking time, this Mexican bean rice dish is both easy to prepare and easy to clean up after.
Super Healthy Kids’ Sweet potato taquitos
Nothing quite says family meal times than a sharing meal, and these sweet potato taquitos are the perfect option. We suggest preparing the food and setting it on the table in small bowls to let your kids make their own wraps, just to their liking.
Vegan Family Recipe’s Couscous burger
Many meat lovers will testifying to absolutely loving veggie burgers, and our list would not be complete without a lip smacking burger. Our research showed that 32% of parents said cooking a family favourite was one of the main reasons for getting the whole family around the dinner table, and we know this recipe will do the trick. Unlike the others on our list, this recipe requires a little more preparation time, but the end result will be more than work it.
