1.​ Vegan Leek and Mushroom Pasta

Leek and mushroom pasta is a filling, flavorful dish for the whole family. It’s packed to the brim with deliciousness and takes just 20 minutes to pull together. 

It has loads of earthy, umami flavors and won’t leave you feeling weighed down. Serve it as a side dish or the main course any time of year.

It’s an incredibly versatile dish that’ll quickly become a go-to. 

2. Creamy Vegan Potato Leek Soup

This soup is always a hit whether you serve it chunky or pureed and creamy. It has a mild, herb-infused flavor that pairs well with almost anything. 

Serve it with a leafy green salad for a complete meal or use it as a starter. It’s the perfect accent to any meal!

3. Vegan Mushroom and Leek Risotto

Don’t you just love the creamy, melt-in-your-mouth texture of risotto? This risotto will make you weak in the knees.

It’s cheesy, hearty, and full of leeks and mushrooms. It comes together in 30 minutes and stays fresh for up to 3 days in the fridge. 

Plus, it takes less than 10 ingredients to make it. It’s hard to beat that kind of simplicity. 

4. One-Pot Mujadara with Leeks

This nutritious one-pot meal checks so many boxes. Not only is it vegan, but it’s also soy-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and gluten-free!

It’s bold and flavorful, as most Middle Eastern food is, and it’s packed with leeks, greens, and lentils. It’s a real ‘stick-to-your-ribs’ meal, even though it’s meat-free. 

5. Vegan Wild Mushroom Leek Chowder

This hearty chowder features a thick, creamy broth. It also has large chunks of potatoes, mushrooms, and other veggies. It doesn’t even need sides to make it a complete meal.

As a bonus, it has the perfect consistency for sopping with thick, dark bread. Mmmmmm! 

6. Vegan Mushroom and Leek Bourguignon

Most of us have heard of beef bourguignon. This recipe is a vegan variation of the French classic. It still features the thick, gravy-like sauce and all the delicious veggies. 

But instead of beef, it has large chunks of mushrooms, leeks, and carrots. Serve it over a bed of fluffy potatoes for the ultimate indulgence.

7. Toasted Pine Nut and Leek Quinoa Salad

This hearty quinoa salad is ridiculously easy to make. It requires only a few simple ingredients and has a sweet-n-savory flavor that’ll knock your socks off. 

Combining honey*, lemon, and garlic gives this salad a slightly Asian flair. It’s also gluten and dairy-free. 

*You can substitute agave nectar for honey if you prefer. 

8. Herb and Leek Potato Salad

Potato salad is always a favorite for backyard BBQs and other events. Unfortunately, the eggs and mayo make it a no-go for vegans. 

This light, refreshing potato salad has neither ingredient. It uses a simple dressing of Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, and garlic instead. 

It’s one of the best potato salad recipes I’ve ever tried. You won’t be disappointed. 

9. Lemony Leek Salad Dressing

Do you enjoy light, bright, and zingy salad dressings? If so, you’ll appreciate this lemony leek salad dressing. It’s zesty and has just enough leeks to make it perfect. 

Add it to fresh salads, roasted veggies, or anything that needs a little extra kick.

10. Vegan Leek and Potato Pizza

In the mood to try something new and different? This vegan leek and potato pizza is definitely both.

It’s a delicious combination that brings a light, refreshing flavor to pizza while still filling you up. It’s indulgent, so it’s the perfect pizza for those who want something unique. 

11. Vegan Deep-Dish Leek Pizza

Here’s another delicious pizza for all my vegan pie lovers. Start with a homemade vegan pizza crust and add a tasty filling. 

That filling includes leeks, tomatoes, coconut cream, and curry powder. You’ll be amazed that those four simple ingredients can deliver such flavor. 

12. Vegan Cauliflower Leek Casserole

Don’t worry, casserole fans, I have you covered, too. This cauliflower leek casserole is thick, rich, herby, and slightly spicy. 

It’s an incredible choice for Sunday dinners. It’s also great for when you want something a little more “down home” and comforting. It’s also egg, dairy, and gluten-free. 

13. Vegan Potatoes Au Gratin with Leeks

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love au gratin potatoes. This vegan version with leeks is just as tasty as all the other au gratin potato recipes I’ve tried.

With leeks, chives, thyme, and vegan cheese, it’s over-the-top delicious.

14. Potato Leek Vegan Quiche

You can whip up this fantastic quiche for any meal of the day. It’s soft and spongy like all the best quiches are. 

It’s also packed with flavorful vegetables and spices. Every bite is a savory masterpiece you’ll want to share with everyone you love.

15. Mushroom Leek Quiche

Want a quiche that’s slightly earthier and even more filling? Try this recipe with mushrooms, leeks, chestnuts, garlic, and more. 

It’s vegan-friendly and 100% egg-free. Even so, it looks, feels, and tastes like a “real” egg-based quiche. Everyone can appreciate it, no matter their dietary restrictions.

16. Leek and Spinach-Stuffed Flatbread

I like to call these Mediterranean quesadillas, and I make them a lot. They’re so simple to pull together, and they taste divine. 

They’re fresh, light, and full of Mediterranean yumminess. Olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach are just three of the goodies you’ll find in this dish.

If you like simple recipes with loads of flavor, this one is a must-try. 

17. Butternut Squash and Leek Soup (Smoky Golden Soup)

This simple, creamy soup is perfect for the cooler months of the year. You’ll love its gorgeous golden-yellow color and gently-spiced fall flavor. 

It takes a little less than an hour to make, plus, it’s low in calories and fat. That means you can eat seconds without having to feel guilty about it. Just be sure you make enough for everyone else to help themselves!
