Happy Friday, food fans! Every Friday, we post the most appetizing and the most aesthetically pleasing vegan meals found on Instagram as part of our #InstaInspo series. This week, we’ve discovered falafel bowls, tuna melts, and dumplings. We’ve also included some similar recipes from our Food Monster App that you can make at home!

1. Loaded Nachos

Loaded Vegan Nachos

@bewellwithemily posted these delicious-looking nachos from @nativefoodscafe, and we’re getting hungry just looking at them! Make your own for dinner with these Loaded BBQ Jackfruit and Potato Cheese Nachos by Mark Reinfeld.

2. PB & J with Grilled Plantains

PB & J with Grilled Plantains

@alessandrataryn grabbed an ideal lunch with this grilled plantain peanut butter and jelly sandwich by @realfooddaily. You can have all these incredible flavors just one bite away with Haley Gallerani‘s Peanut Butter, Jam, and Banana French Toast Sandwich!

3. Tuna Melt

Tuna Melt

@veganinhi brought us this beautiful picture of an amazing looking Tu-NOT Melt from @vegan_hills. You’d be amazed at how great a vegan tuna melt can be – don’t believe us? Try Marly McMillen Beelman‘s Chickpea Tuna Melt and find out.

4. Pitaya and Ginger Smoothie and Banana Bread

@ninibee_ had the most beautiful and colorful breakfast at @passioncafe with a pitaya ginger smoothie, turkish delight latte, banana bread and chocolate pancakes! To help out with the most important meal of the day (and to get a picture almost as pretty as this), try our Dragonfruit Pink Lady Smoothie by Diana Johnson  and One Bowl Almond Butter Banana Bread byCara Carin!

5. Pho


@notjustveg grabbed an Instagram-worthy dinner at @phorestaurant! We’re definitely craving this now, so we’ll just have to whip up Sofia Von Porat‘s Vietnamese Pho With Mushrooms and Tofu at home!

6. Strawberry Rhubarb Doughnut

Strawberry Rhubarb Donut

@elspeth3 must have had a sweet afternoon with this lovely doughnut from @21oakmanchester! Now that your sweet tooth is paying attention, you’re definitely going to want to make Holly Jade‘s Strawberry Marble Doughnuts!

7. Falafel Salad

Falafel Salad

@quitesimplyemma is making us dream of lunch with this tasty picture of her falafel salad from @taimfalafel, so if you’re in the same boat, we can recommend this Baked Falafel Salad and Two Creamy Dressings by Julie West!

8. Cannoli


Wow, vegan cannoli sounds like everything we need for dessert right now. How pretty is this one from @thevegitaliano? If you can’t get cannoli out of your head now, whip some up with Nele Liivlaid’s recipe for Sweet Ricotta Cheese with Raw Buckwheat, a cannoli filling you can put on everything!

9. Shumai, Wontons and Dumplings

Shumai, Wontons and Dumplings

@rhianarhirhi‘s shumai, wontons and dumplings from @ichizakitchen looks as amazing as we bet it tastes! How about Gin Butters‘s Veggie Wontons With Sweet and Sour Sauce or Fried or Steamed Veggie Dumplings by Robin Burns for dinner?

10. Ice Cream Sundae

@ciaraslevinart‘s dessert from @eatstreetbelfast has us dreaming of ice cream sundaes. Luckily, there’s this recipe for Strawberry Banana Ice Cream Sundae With Raspberry Mint Sauce by Julie Van den Kerchove to help out!
