Vegan starters

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.

If you're still hungry for more, dip into our luxury hummus with chunks of warm pitta bread. This isn't your average hummus – this is super-silky giant chickpea hummus, and it's impossible to stop at just one scoop.

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 classics

Pile your plate high with spoonfuls of roasted veg, a vegan Yorkie or two and one of our vibrant mains. Bake our beetroot & red onion tarte tatin for a colourful slice of seasonal goodness. It's easier to make than you might think and is sure to steal the show on any dining table. Want an alternative to the standard nut roast? Try our roasted stuffed cauliflower with kale pesto and chestnuts.

A marvellous Mexican feast

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.

Barbecue favourites

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.

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.

Find even more vegan barbecue recipes that don't skimp on flavour.

Vegan desserts

Bake up an uber-indulgent treat that no one will believe is vegan. Try our cookies & cream brownies – you can make them 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. 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.
