1. Low-Carb Mexican Cauliflower Rice 

Mexican cauliflower rice is a healthy side dish that’s quick and easy to make.

This dish somehow takes cauliflower and turns it into something super tasty and flavorful. No more bland cauliflower!

Look, it’s not actually rice but it really does taste so much like it. This cauliflower rice is filled with Mexican flavors that we all know and love. 

This is a fantastic way to get more veggies and keep in line with the Pegan diet. 

2. Mexican Roasted Cauliflower

This is another cauliflower dish that is far from bland! These cauliflower florets are seasoned and roasted until they get nice and crispy and tender. 

The finishing touches are lime juice, cilantro, and red onion. If you want to add a bit of creaminess, serve it with some avocado, too! 

This cauliflower will be a hit at your next pegan Taco Tuesday party!

3. Salmon Stuffed Avocados 

These salmon-stuffed avocados are filled to the brim with a delicious salmon salad. It is a perfect lunch that is loaded with protein.

The flavor is fantastic and the creaminess from the avocado is a divine addition. 

4. Watermelon Salad 

This salad is simple and refreshing. It has a wonderful flavor and is packed with good-for-you ingredients. 

I love the juicy watermelon and the cucumber, red onion, basil, and mint give the salad a perfect balance of flavors.

It also has vegan feta, which adds a nice, tangy punch of flavor. 

The vinaigrette brings it all together and makes everything even tastier! This is a really good salad for a picnic. It’s the perfect summer dish. 

5. Thai Mango Avocado Salad with Grilled Sweet Potatoes  

This salad is refreshing and flavorful.

The combination of flavors and textures is something special and the salad is packed with nutrients and healthy fats. 

The mango gives this salad a little pop of bright and juicy flavor. The avocado is smooth and creamy, a wonderful contrast to the mango. 

The sweet potato is sweet and smoky. It’s almost an unexpected addition to the salad.

I love the flavors and textures in this recipe. I have a feeling that you will, too!

6. Jackfruit BBQ Pizza With A Sweet Potato Crust 

This pizza is a delicious vegan take on a BBQ chicken pizza. 

Jackfruit and barbeque sauce taste almost like pulled pork. I love the sweet potato crust and I think it is the perfect base for the tangy toppings. 

Top this pizza with sliced red onions and fresh cilantro for the perfect pops of flavor. 

7. French Lentil & Roasted Vegetable Salad 

This salad has layers and layers of delicious flavor. It starts with a bed of peppery arugula.

Then, protein-packed lentils and veggies are tossed in. The squash is one of my favorite parts of this salad. 

The tahini dressing is creamy and flavorful. Drizzle it over the whole salad for a beautiful marriage of delicious ingredients. 

This salad is a delicious and filling lunch and is easy to prep the ingredients ahead of time!

8. Vegan Tofu Poke Bowl 

Vegan poke bowls are a super fun lunch or dinner recipe that’s full of flavor! 

Top the fluffy rice with ginger marinated tofu. It has a fantastic flavor that really makes this dish special. 

The pickled onion is nice and bright. The avocado is creamy and the cucumber is refreshing and crunchy. 

I also love the edamame in this poke bowl. It’s an extra layer of protein that gives the bowl a nice texture. 

9. Almond Butter Sesame Zucchini Noodles 

These almond butter zucchini noodles are a healthy and delicious take on sesame peanut noodles. 

The almond butter sauce has chopped almonds and scallions and it’s slightly sweetened using dates. 

Zucchini noodles are a yummy and healthy alternative to regular noodles.

Be sure you get as much moisture out of them as you can, so they get nice and tender!

10. Ratatouille 

Ratatouille is a quick and simple meal full of veggies! It’s a light and fresh meal with all sorts of different vegetables. 

The vegetables are stewed in a thick tomato sauce. They’re laid into the sauce in a patterned row that looks like you spent all day making it. 

Not only does it look fantastic, but it tastes incredible, too!

11. Chinese Broccoli Stir-Fry with Garlic Sauce 

This broccoli stir-fry has a delicious garlic flavor. Plus, the dark leafy greens are full of vitamins and minerals. 

If you don’t have Chinese kai lan, you can use broccolini. Sauté it in a garlic and soy-flavored sauce.

This light and fresh veggie dish is a fabulous side to any meal.

12. Coconut and Ginger Pumpkin Soup 

Coconut ginger pumpkin soup is creamy and scrumptious. The ginger is a nice kick to the sweet coconut and pumpkin. 

The ingredients in this soup are comforting and nourishing in the most delicious way. 

You can make this soup with chicken broth, or you can use vegetable broth for a vegan version. 

13. Paleo Pasta Salad 

This pasta salad is nearly perfect in every way. It’s quick and easy to make, which is already a huge plus in my book. 

It also has a great crunch from the veggies and it will fill you up! It’s perfect for a picnic lunch. 

It has simple ingredients and a simple dressing but when it all comes together, it’s a fabulous pasta salad! 

14. Zucchini Noodles with Vegan Lemon Cream Sauce 

Spiralized zucchini is back at it again with another delicious dish. These are covered with a vegan lemon cream sauce. 

These noodles are heavenly. Plus, there’s a surprising amount of protein in them.

The secret to a creamy sauce without cream? It’s cashews! Try this recipe to find out just how creamy and lemon-flavored this sauce really is!

15. Mexican Quinoa Salad 

This is a one-pot dish full of flavor, protein, and nutrients! In about 30 minutes, you’ll have a tasty dinner that’s gluten-free and vegan. 

This filling dinner has quinoa, black beans, jalapeno, corn, red onions, and cilantro. Don’t skip this one!

16. Three Herb Tomato Zucchini Salad 

This salad is the perfect make-ahead side dish. 

It’s full of fresh veggies and beautiful herbs. Serve this along with any main course. It’s a veggie recipe that everyone will love. 

17. Perfect Omelette 

This step-by-step recipe will show you how to make a perfect omelette. 

This one is super fluffy and filled with avocado and veggies. It’s so flavorful, it might become your new breakfast “usual.”

18. Strawberry Coconut Milk Shake 

It’s called a milkshake because even though it’s vegan, it’s that good! This thick and creamy treat is perfect for a hot day. 

You only need five ingredients including coconut milk, and you can have this milkshake whipped up in no time!

19. Pegan Diet Detox Salad 

This salad is like a rainbow in a bowl. I love all of the colors and flavorful superfoods! 

It’s called a detox salad because of all of the phytonutrients in each of the different colors.

Not only is this salad delicious, but you’ll get all of your essential nutrients.

Plus, the crunch of this salad is unbelievable! You have to try it! 

20. 2-Ingredient Cauliflower Paleo Gnocchi 

Okay, we’re talking homemade, two-ingredient, gnocchi…made with cauliflower! 

This recipe is easier than you would think so you have to try it.

This pillowy, delicious gnocchi might just make some reappearances on the weekly dinner menu. 

21. Vegan Bang Bang Cauliflower Tacos 

Cauliflower tacos never tasted so good until this recipe came along. The cauliflower is crispy and spicy! 

The tangy, crunchy slaw is the perfect addition to the spicy cauliflower. The avocado mellows everything out with a wonderful creaminess. 

These are definitely tacos unlike any other. 

22. Vegan Tahini Cauliflower Steaks 

I’m not sure who first started calling cauliflower slices “steaks” but I think it adds some appeal, so we’ll go with it.

With that being said, these cauliflower steaks don’t need any help. They’re delicious!

The tahini sauce is creamy and goes so well with the crispy cauliflower.

These can be served as a side dish but they’re hearty enough to be the main course!

23. Creamy Spinach Sweet Potato Noodles With Cashew Sauce 

Sweet potato noodles are a new one for me. However, it’s definitely not the last time I’ll be trying these. 

The spiralized sweet potato is fabulous and the cashew sauce is so delectable. 

It’s a dish that tastes just as good as it looks, and the whole family will love it!

24. Spicy Peanut Spaghetti Squash Ramen 

Spaghetti squash noodles in a spicy peanut lime broth? Say no more! 

This is a spectacular dish. To make ramen at home is one thing. But making it paleo and vegan with it still tasting great is incredible!

25. Baked Avocado Fries {Four Ingredients} 

Avocado fries are one of my favorite crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside dishes. 

These are baked instead of fried, which makes them nice and crispy and healthy! 

This is the perfect recipe to try if you have a bunch of avocados that you might not use before they go bad.

Just coat them and bake until crispy!
