Welcome to the fourth and final week of this free and easy vegan meal plan. We hope you have found lots of inspiration and ideas from the meals and snacks provided.
They say it can take up to two months to create new habits, so you are well on your way if veganism is something you wish to continue. Its all about finding your flow with your favourite dishes and seasoning. This veganuary meal plan has been purposely varied to demonstrate how vibrant this life can be.
We often have people ask us for low calorie vegan dishes, in which this article may help you to mix it up. We have purposely not restricted calories in our meal plan however, as making the step to veganism is big enough already.
People also request high calorie meals in which we also have you covered!
Aa always, remember to stay well hydrated and follow you intuition with how much you eat.

Crumpets with Toppings
Crumpets can be super versatile and so quick to make. Simply pop them in the toaster until golden and add your toppings. They somehow always taste better with some melted vegan butter dripping into all the little pockets!
Here are some great toppings
- Nut/Seed butter
- Vegan chocolate spread, like Vego
- Vegan cream cheese

Veganuary Meal Plan – Day 24
Cereal with Toppings
An easy and quick breakfast that can be totally satisfying, once drenched in ice cold vegan milk and your favourite toppings.
You can easily get vegan, low sugar cereals in the supermarket. From various flakes and wheat based cereals, to rice pops and more. Just be sure to check the ingredients as different brands may vary. There are also many gluten free cereals on the market if this is a dietary need.
You can always add a vegan muesli or some fresh fruit, seeds and/or nuts to boost the nutritional profile. Many cereals are fortified additionally. Using fortified cereals and milks helps ensure you are meeting your daily nutritional requirements.
Banana Cacao Smoothie
This is a delicious Banana Cacao Smoothie with simple ingredients. With simple ingredients, it is a delicious chocolatey treat that is easy to make.
Roasted Mediterranean Veggies and Hummus Pitta
This is a delicious and light lunch, as the pitta breads are quite thin. It is super easy to prep the mediterranean veggies the night before if needed and they are great eaten cold too.
What you will need:
- 1-2 pitta breads (depending on your appetite)
- 1 cup roasted mediterranean mixed veggies (peppers, red onions, aubergines/eggplant, courgette/zucchini)
- 1 handful rocket/arugala salad
- 1tbsp hummus per pitta
- Salt/pepper to taste
- Mixed herbs
- 1 tbsp olive oil
How to make the roasted vegetables:
Preheat oven to 356f/180c. Prepare vegetables of choice, chopped and place on a roasting tray with a drizzle of olive oil, herbs, salt and pepper. Roast for approx. 25-30 mins until cooked through.
They will go great warm in a freshly cooked pitta bread with the salad and hummus. However they are also good chilled if you are making the vegetables the night before.
To take out, assemble the pitta on the same day to prevent sogginess, as the water content is high in the veggies!
Other great additions to this pitta is chilli sauce or balsamic glaze.
A really delicious soup recipe that is packed with flavour. Who doesn’t love Vietnamese Pho?
What you will need to make pho (serves 2)
- 3 cups Vegan Broth or stock (note – broth is better)
- 2 star anise
- 5 cloves
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 medium white onion
- 1 thumb fresh ginger
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- Black pepper
- 2 bay leaves
Some great additions to pho
- Rice noodles
- Fresh lime juice (lots of!)
- Panfried veggies such as green beans, mangetout, various mushrooms
- Crispy pan fried firm tofu (cooked in sesame oil – amazing!)
- Fresh herbs (a must!) – coriander/cilantro, mint, Thai basil
- Torn spinach
- Spring onions
- Soya sauce
To make the broth
Chargrill a white onion, garlic, fresh ginger, cloves and star anise (or simply dry roast in an oven).
Add 3 cups of vegetable stock to a pot with the chargrilled veg and seasons. Add two cinnamon sticks, two bay leaves, and some black pepper. Leave to simmer for approx. 30 minutes. Then strain, leaving a delicious broth. Taste test to see if you fancy any more water/seasoning.
Prepare your toppings
Choose from the toppings above. You can start prepping these as your broth is simmering. It is quite common to have all of these toppings on a Pho – but pick what you like. Noodles and herbs would be essentials with the broth. The rest is a bonus but make for an explosion of flavours.
Add the toppings gently to your bowl of hot broth and enjoy.

Vegan Breakfast Pizza
Whats more fun than a Vegan Breakfast Pizza for dinner? Why not!
With yummy scrambled tofu, vegan sausage, baked beans and more – it is a super tasty vegan pizza to enjoy.
Many highstreet supermarkets stock vegan pizza bases (always check ingredients). Pizza dough should essentially be flour, water and yeast – maybe with some oil and salt.
It’s super easy to create you’re own homemade vegan pizza with your own choice of toppings. However supermarkets are even increasingly stocking ready made vegan and gluten free pizzas – it just depends what your preference is.
Also, don’t fancy cooking? Most pizza chains now do a vegan cheese pizza with toppings. However, it’s important to know that some don’t – add even use dairy in their bases! It’s always good to ask or check their information.
Luckily, many traditional Italian pizzerias would use a straightforward vegan dough. But it’s always good to ask. Even a vegan cheeseless pizza can be delicious!
Some other great toppings and sauces:
- Sun-dried tomato paste
- Vegan Pesto
- BBQ sauce
- Pineapple (controversial!)
- Various vegan cheeses
It’s also really nice to add some fresh rocket/arugala salad or avocado when the pizza has been cooked!
Veganuary Meal Plan – Day 27
Easy Vegan Buckwheat Pancakes
These Vegan Buckwheat Pancakes are too good not to include again on this 4 week vegan meal plan! So easy and delicious. Did you know buckwheat is super nutritious and high in protein?
Simply blend and enjoy. The frozen bananas gives it a beautiful refreshing taste. Add more liquids/banana if you prefer a thicker or thinner smoothie.
Easy Vegan Instant Noodles
These are an absolute favourite a a much healthier version to the instant noodles found in packets (although no judgement here as some of these are the quickest lunches!).
What you will need:
- 1 nest of rice noodles
- 1/2 tsp tumeric
- 1 tsp curry powder
- 200 mls veggie stock
- 1 handful of peas
- 1 handful shredded spinach
- Optional: Soya Sauce/Tamari
How to make
Most rice noodles are fairly instant! The great thing about this recipe is it contains no nasty chemicals like some packaged noodles. With most rice noodles, you soak in boiling water and rinse after 3 minutes – however with these to absorb the stock and spices, we will gently simmer for around 5 minutes on the hob. Add the peas and spinach for the last couple for minutes.
Falafels and Tahini dip
This is a real simple and fulfilling snack. Tahini is just ground sesame seed paste and readily available from most supermarkets. It is fairly affordable, packed with protein and calcium. There are also many pre-pared falafels you can purchase from the store.
To make a tahini dip – simply whisk together the following:
- 1/4 cup Tahini
- Sprinkle of sea salt
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tbsp warm water
Stuffed Fried Rice Pineapple
What you need
- 1 medium sized ripe pineapple
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 cup of cooked rice
- 1 handful macadamia nuts
- 1 white onion
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 cup of garden peas
- 1 handful of chopped spinach
- Optional: Soya Sauce/Tamari/Sweet Chilli Sauce/Sriracha Sauce
How to make:
Preheat oven to 180c/356f. Cut pineapple in two. Cut/scoop out the centre and dice the pineapple this part into chunks. Discard of any hard parts (or keep them for your smoothies!). You should be left with the shell of the pineapple and leaves still on – wrap the leaves in tinfoil. Place this in the oven to bake on a tray for 5 minutes to help dry it out.
Fry your onion in vegetable oil for a couple of minutes, then add the garlic. Add the cooked rice and cook through. Towards the end, add the cubed pineapple, peas and spinach. Remove the pineapple shells from the oven and fill each half with rice mixture.
Top with macadamia nuts and bake the stuffed pineapple for a further ten minutes. Remove from oven and enjoy as a show stopping dinner!
Enjoy alongside other vegan yummies, like these cinnamon roasted sweet potatoes or your other favourite sides, such as these awesome tofu souvlaki skewers. Top with condiments of choice like soya sauce/tamari, sweet chilli sauce or spicy sriracha sauce.
