Dad-Approved Vegan Recipes

Father’s Day weekend is just around the corner, and picking out a gift for my dad still proves to be super hard after all these years (dry macaroni bracelets just don’t cut it anymore). But there is one thing that I can never go wrong with: cooking him a delicious vegan meal! And you should do the same for your dad. It’ll make his belly and his heart happy—a healthy vegan diet lowers the risk of heart disease, cancer, and stroke. It’s a win-win!

Want to show your dad how much you ♥ him and help animals at the same time? Check out our top five dad-approved vegan recipes for Father’s Day:

1. Classic ‘Chicken’ Penne With Marinara


This yummy and hearty meal will get your dad ready for his special day!

2. Waffle Taco With ‘Sausage,’ ‘Eggs,’ and ‘Cheese’


I think the name says it all—you just know it’s going to be epic.

3. Grilled Tofu and Veggie Kabobs

    I didn’t take a picture (it all got gobbled up so quickly, I forgot to snap a pic!) But I made a tofu stir-fry with broccoli, squash, zucchini, mushrooms, rice, and of course – cubed tofu 🙂 All coated in a sauce made with peanut butter, soy sauce, and peanut sauce. My dad (the man who took us to La Hacienda’s for Father’s Day lunch -_-) said he loved it! Is there something I can do to get credit for it?
