Easy Vegan Dinner, Easy Vegan Lunch, Easy Vegan Chili

This Chilli is perfect for meal prep or a quick weeknight meal when you don’t feel like cooking!


This chilli is one of my go-to fast and easy vegan dinners. I’ve been making it for years, and everyone always loves it. This is of those great easy vegan dinner recipes that are both nutritious and delicious. It’s so easy that it’s a great recipe to go to when you don’t feel like cooking.

This simple yet ever so tasty vegan dinner is one of those recipes that taste even better the next day. This is why I would highly recommend it as one of your vegan meal prep ideas. I’ve used black peas and chickpeas here, but you can absolutely substitute any other pulses you have to hand in your pantry.

My easy vegan dinner recipes are great to use for your wholefood vegan meal prep.

Double the recipe, and you have some yummy lunches stocked up and ready to go. Another bonus to this easy vegan chilli recipe is that it is a very economical meal. Most of the ingredients you probably already have in your fridge or pantry. I would always recommend keeping cans of legumes in your pantry because they are versatile and nutritious.

This easy vegan recipe idea is also great to serve when entertaining because it’s easy to make in advance. After all, who doesn’t like chilli?

Of course, chilli is always better with yummy toppings. My favourites are guacamole, vegan cheese, coriander and finely diced red onions. If you want to, you can serve this Chili on its own or with garlic bread. It’s delicious served over a jacket potato or rice, and try adding a green salad on the side to boost your nutrient intake. Try my Easy Peasy Spinach Salad here.

I hope you enjoy my easy vegan dinner idea.
