Your breakfast bowl is sorted, your lunch bowl is set, and now all you need are some healthier dinner bowl recipe inspirations.
Whether you’re in the throes of Veganuary for the first time, a seasoned veteran, or just love tucking into yummy veggie-forward bowls, we’ve got you covered.
What are veggie bowls?
There’s no official rule for veggie bowls, but generally, they’re based on the macrobiotic way of eating, combining seasonal vegetables, minimally processed plant-based proteins, and whole grains. But within that framework, there’s no end to the possibilities.
Whip up these healthy veggie bowls as the recipe intends or take inspiration and create your own. Happy eating!
1. The Big Vegan Bowl
If you don’t want to make your hummus from scratch, we recommend the olive oil one from Marks & Spencer Food shops. It’s addictively delicious!

2. Sweet Potato Chickpea Buddha Bowl
We are huge fans of The Minimalist Baker. All her recipes are, as her name promises, minimal. This stunning buddha bowl is a breeze: the whole thing is a 30 minute affair!

3. The Mother Of All Veggie Bowls
Vegetarian husband & wife duo David and Luise, and their Green Kitchen Stories blog, have become world famous thanks to their outstanding and easy-to-follow plant-based recipes. This one is another winner.

5. Roasted Veggie Tahini Quinoa Bowl
How colorful is this bowl? You can just feel the vitamins jumping off the page! We also really enjoyed the presentation: instead of piling veggies and toppings on top of a quinoa base, Cookies To Kale advocates a line by line approach.

6. Roasted Veggie Quinoa Bowl
Whilst this veggie bowl is a more involved affair, it’s so worth it. From the Garlic Roasted Broccoli to the Roasted Sriracha & Soy Sauce Chickpeas to the Chili-Lime Kale, every part of this is an explosion of flavour in your mouth.

7. Korean Barbecue Tofu Bowls With Stir Fried Veggies And Quinoa
We are cukoo for Korean food so this was a no-brainer addition and we especially liked the clever addition of roasted pineapple. The Korean BBQ sauce recipe from scratch is a keeper, too.

8. Deconstructed Vegetable Sushi Bowl Miso Tahini Dressing
For those naysayers who think Japanese cuisine can’t be vegan friendly, try this plant take on a sushi bowl with nori, miso and shitake mushrooms.

9. Nourish Bowl
Less of a strict recipe and more of a helpful guide, the Nourish Bowl How To shows you how to achieve the perfect macro balance in your veggie bowl.
