Vegan starters

Spread of chickpea bites and vegan rainbow rolls with dips

We can never resist nibbles. Add a pop of colour to your platter with these vegan rainbow spring rolls, served with a sweet chilli dipping sauce. Stuffed full of fresh veg, herbs and crunchy peanuts, these won't stick around for long. If you're feeling ambitious, try adding our teriyaki tempeh to your menu, complete with moreish peanut dipping sauce. We never met a chickpea we didn't like, and that includes our spiced aubergine & chickpea bites with a creamy harissa yogurt. For make-ahead bites, these satay aubergine skewers can be easily roasted in the morning, then heated up five minutes before serving. Our vegetable gyoza can also be cooked from frozen, and you can save time by using shop-bought gyoza skins.

If you're still hungry for more, dip into our super-silky luxury hummus with chunks of warm pitta bread. Or, for an extra kick, try our spicy sweet potato hummus, flavoured with paprika and chilli.

Vegan mains

Get stuck into a Sunday roast, a table overflowing with superb barbecue dishes or a Mexican-inspired feast this Father's Day. Nobody needs to miss out with these super satisfying family meals.

Sunday roast specials

Whole roast cauliflower with green centre

Our classic nut roast and next level vegan wellington both make a striking centrepiece – pile your plate high with sides of vegan roast potatoes, thyme roasted vegetables and a vegan yorkie or two.

Looking for an alternative to the traditional? Bake our impressive beetroot & red onion tarte tatin or serve up a whole roasted stuffed cauliflower with kale pesto and chestnuts. Our Italian-style roast cabbage wedges with tomato lentils also make for a sophisticated main.

For something more casual, make the most of seasonal veg in this colourful vegan paella or tuck into a hearty vegan cottage pie, complete with umami lentil filling and a crispy sweet potato mash topping.

We've got plenty more vegan roast recipes which are sure to impress dad and the whole family.

A marvellous Mexican feast

Pulled jackfruit on a plate with tacos and sour cream

Go for a less formal affair with our mouth-watering vegan pulled jackfruit. It's ideal for stuffing into fresh bread rolls or wrapping up in our charcoal tortillas. Slather on a generous helping of our ultimate guacamole, a sprinkling of our Mexican corn salsa and a drizzle of sour cream, and you've got yourself a magnificent mouthful. Serve alongside our vibrant vegan enchiladas and Mexican fiesta rice, or go all out with our loaded vegan bean chilli fries.

Barbecue favourites

Vegetable skewers with dips and salad

We've got no shortage of sides, salads and saucy barbecue bites. Get to grips with tofu and try our Kentucky fried seitan. Stick it in a bun with salad and coleslaw, or serve it as mock chicken dippers with barbecue sauce or a herby chimichurri sauce. Or pile chunks of mushrooms, peaches, courgettes and red onion to make our colourful vegan kebabs and serve with a creamy avocado dressing.

Try another terrific tofu creation with our BBQ teriyaki tofu steaks. The tofu soaks up all the flavours of the sesame marinade before it gets sizzled on the grill. Of course, no barbecue would be complete without the all-important burger – our falafel burgers have plenty of bite and are best enjoyed in a toasted pitta with crunchy salad and a spoonful of hummus.

Vegan desserts

Chocolate tart with slice taken out, served with raspberries on the side

Bake up an uber-indulgent treat that no one will believe is vegan. Our easy chocolate tart makes a simple yet stunning dessert, with a crunchy digestive base and silky chocolate and coconut milk filling. Or, go all out with a showstopping vegan trifle, complete with layers of sponge, fruity compote, custard and dairy-free cream. If you are on a budget, try our cookies & cream brownies – you can whip them up with storecupboard ingredients, so no expensive swaps are necessary. Plate them up warm with a scoop of vegan ice cream.

Want something a little lighter? You can't go wrong with our vegan Eton mess, filled with summer berries and crunchy meringues. We even have a handy video tutorial to take you through the recipe step by step. Or whip up a light and fluffy vegan tiramisu, rich with coffee and chocolate flavours. If your dad's a fan of the simple sponge cake, try our vegan Victoria sponge with a rich creamy filling and sweet strawberry jam, or these dainty vegan vanilla cupcakes make an easy edible gift for younger bakers to try.
