Looking to try some new and exciting plant-based meals? Add these vegan Greek recipes to your meal rotation.
Fresh, savory, comforting, and sweet, these dishes offer a cornucopia of flavors.
Greek cuisine focuses on whole foods like veggies, fruits, beans, and grains. It’s the ideal diet for creating enticing vegan dishes.
Spanakopita, moussaka, gemista, and gyros are just a handful. They combine traditional flavors with modern plant-based twists.
These vegan Greek recipes have something for everybody. Even non-vegans will love them!
Forget beef stuffed peppers, vegan Greek stuffed vegetables are where it’s at. Known as gemista, these plant-based gems are flavor-packed.
They’re brimming with aromatic herby rice, chickpeas, figs, capers, and more. The serving vessel itself enhances the symphony of tastes and textures.
Tomatoes, onions, peppers, and globe zucchini offer a nice assortment. Balancing savory with sweet, they’re overflowing with Mediterranean flavors.
They’re so good, no one will even notice they’re vegan.
Salads don’t need meat or dairy to be exciting. Just take it from this vibrant Greek salad. It takes a classic and gives it a refreshing plant-based spin.
Crisp cucumbers, juicy tomatoes, green peppers, and salty olives meld with vegan feta. Tossed in a zesty dressing, it’s a nourishing treat.
Crunchy and refreshing, this salad is great for a light lunch or dinner side. It’s also lettuce-free. Meaning, there’s no need to worry about sad, wilted greens.
3. Vegan Gyros
Who needs pork when you have vegan gyros? Even die-hard carnivores will crave these mouthwatering Greek sandwiches.
Succulent jackfruit takes center stage with its meaty flavor and texture. Seasoned with warming spices, maple syrup, soy sauce, and tomato paste, it’s so delicious.
Fresh veggies add a delightful crunch and the soft pita is so heavenly. Add a generous drizzle of vegan tzatziki to make it complete.
Serve it with fries for the perfect combination!
Spanakopita is one of my all-time favorites. So you can imagine how skeptical I was of a dairy-free version. And yet, it’s super tasty. Vinegar and salt give cashews the tanginess of feta.
It’s a remarkable replacement for real cheese. Layered with flaky phyllo and a spinach filling, it tastes like regular spanakopita.
Serve it as a snack, side, or vegan party appetizer.
Looking for a vegan dip that isn’t hummus? Try melitzanosalata. It’s like the Greek cousin of baba ganoush.
The roasted eggplant melds with lemon, garlic, salt, and pepper. Top it off with a sprinkle of parsley for a pop of color. It’s easy to make and you only need seven ingredients.
I enjoy eating it with warm pita bread. It’s also a fantastic addition to a larger spread like a mezze platter.
Meat eater or dedicated vegan, everyone loves potatoes! And these fork-tender delights are the best. The outsides are crispy and the insides are so soft. They melt in your mouth!
The potatoes sit in a lemon broth infusing them with a bright flavor. Packed with garlic and seasoned with oregano, they’re full of Greek flavors.
These spuds go with just about anything. Although, it’s hard not to devour them before they even reach the table.
If you love tomatoes, you need to make this tonight! These are like a Greek mashup of fritters and fried green tomatoes.
They combine garden-fresh ingredients with cinnamon, sugar, and flour. After a quick bath in hot oil, they take on a wonderful crunch. They’re juicy, crispy, and full of flavor.
Dip them in creamy vegan tzatziki and let the snacking begin!
8. Greek Hummus
Creamy, savory, and fresh, it rivals the best of the best. Serve it topped with paprika, pine nuts, and a drizzle of olive oil. It creates a stunning presentation and adds a boost of flavor.
Take a bite and you’ll never buy store-bought hummus again. It’s far superior.
Nourishing and revitalizing, this vegan soup is a comforting blend of humble ingredients. Greek flavors instantly transform lentils and veggies into a delicious meal.
The best part is, it’s easy and budget-friendly.
Make a bowl anytime you need a clean-eating meal. It’s a low-cal option packed with plant-based protein, potassium, and vitamins.
Spanakorizo is a Greek-style spinach and rice dish. While it’s simple both in ingredients and effort, it’s big on bright flavors.
Lemon, dill, and green onion bring it to life. They perk up the earthiness of the rice and give it a Greek twist. Spinach gives it a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals. A heavy pour of olive oil adds healthy fats and makes it creamy.
It’s a wholesome meal that works both as a side or dinner.
Imagine a garlicky bowl of fluffy mashed potatoes you can slather on everything. Skordalia is just that. It’s a heavenly dip that’s very versatile. Spread it on a sandwich, eat it with pita bread, or serve it with veggies.
The smooth potatoes, pungent garlic, and tangy vinegar create a delightful appetizer. It comes together in just 30 minutes.
It’s so creamy, no one will miss the butter.
Here’s how you do comfort food the Greek vegan way. Moussaka is a popular eggplant dish that contains meat and bechamel sauce. But not this plant-based version.
Hearty and savory, it’s one cozy meal. It comes with a tomato lentil sauce and a creamy cheesy cashew topping.
This dish makes living meat and dairy-free even better!
Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about dessert! End your meal on a sweet note with tahinopita.
This delicacy combines the nuttiness of tahini with orange zest, raisins, nuts, and cardamom. It’s dense, moist, and a healthier alternative to sugary sweets. Also, this cake is dairy-free, egg-free, and oil-free.
Top it with powdered sugar, orange glaze, or chocolate. Either way, it’s great with a cup of coffee or tea.
