On Mother’s Day, we celebrate that amazing woman who taught us countless lessons throughout childhood. So many of these lessons can revolve around food. Maybe your mom taught you how to properly chop raw veggies, bake the perfect loaf of bread, plant your own herb garden, or simple kitchen tasks like how to correctly boil water so it doesn’t overflow at the top. Maybe she doesn’t cook at all, but sure knows the best dinner take-out deal in town, along with dozens and dozens of bits of non-cooking-related wisdom. Whatever your mother has taught you, take the time to thank her with a beautiful meal that not only tastes divine, but contains zero animal ingredients. Here are 10 gorgeous vegan dishes to impress your mom this Mother’s Day:
1. Super Healthy Vegan Berry Fruit Tarts with Chia Seeds
This start is spectacular, and mom will think so too when you surprise her with it for breakfast. The crust is nut-free and made from only dried dates, raisins, and figs.
2. Raspberry Vanilla Cupcakes with Coconut Cream Frosting
Blend raspberries and coconut milk to get a lovely pink-colored frosting perfect for topping cupcakes. Channel your inner Cake Boss and add some edible pearls or another decorative touch on top for pizzazz.
3. Chickpea Butternut Tagine
This feel-good food is a perfect dinner dish for mom complete with hearty, filling ingredients like butternut squash, chickpeas, and couscous.
4. Mini Quinoa-Chickpea Cakes
These cakes are packed with nutrients from the veggies, and protein from the quinoa and chickpeas. Serve this as a mid-afternoon energy-boost for mom.
5. Kale and Golden Beet Salad
Show mom a colorful plate with this trifecta salad of green, orange, and yellow with kale, carrots, and beets. It’s simple to make and tasty with the suggested garlic-ginger dressing.
