5 Vegan-Friendly Recipes On Mother’s Day

18 March 2022

Mother’s Day is a fantastic opportunity to cook your beloved mum a special meal. But what if she’s vegan? In the past, that word could strike fear in the heart of most meat-eaters. Luckily nowadays, we’re all more vegan savvy so it’s much easier to find vegan-friendly recipes and ingredients fit for a wonderful celebration like Mother’s Day. 

Vegan Mother’s Day Gifts

It can be a tricky business purchasing foodie gifts for a vegan mum. First off, you’ve got to navigate your way through the labeling to determine if a product’s vegan or not. Even then, it’s not always clear. And you don’t want to make a mistake either and give her something that turns out not to be vegan.

Slightly Different Foods relieves the pressure because you can rest assured that our products are vegan and Low FODMAP too, meaning they’re packed full of healthy ingredients. Not to mention that they’re perfect for anyone suffering from IBS or digestive issues too.

Free of all 14 allergens, including gluten and dairy, these condiments and sauces are 100% natural, nutritious, and unbelievably delicious. If your mum’s a passionate cook, our Around the World Pack of 10 Sauces will be right up her street. 

If you want something more personal, however, why not select your own sauces? If you like the sound of that, make her a vegan Mother’s Day hamper by choosing the Six Pack Pick ‘N’ Mix, and don’t forget to tell us your choices at the checkout.

Going to be in the hot seat on Mother’s Day? Feel confident in taking on the chef’s cap by using our diverse range of vegan products and make sure you read on for some mouth-watering vegan recipes.

Our Top 5 Vegan Mother’s Day Recipes

If you’re feeling a bit phased about the prospect of a vegan guest coming for dinner, you can stop right now. Slightly Different Foods is on hand, ready to get you set up for a vegan Mother’s Day. In fact, your biggest decision is which delicious recipe you’ll be eating for your vegan Mother’s Day meal.

An Italian Affair

Who doesn’t love a hot, bubbling lasagne? Make this classic Italian dish with either Slightly Different Tomato and Basil Sauce or Slightly Different Bolognese Sauce. Yep, we really did just say a Bolognese sauce in a vegan recipe! But you don’t have to worry because this is vegan approved and there’s no mince in this sauce, instead, it derives its rich flavour from a clever combination of tomato, vegetables, herbs, and spices. Best served with a leafy Italian salad and our low FODMAP garlic bread recipe.   

A Great Curry

If you’re planning an evening get-together, there’s nothing like a good old curry. And this one doesn’t disappoint. We love the Fakeaway Takeaway Vegan Tikka Masala with golden garlic bread triangles and cooling Cucumber Mint Salad. 

Don’t forget if you want super tasty tofu, prep it the night before with a few tablespoonfuls of Slightly Different Tikka Masala Sauce, cover, and leave in the fridge until you’re ready to get cooking. This is feel-good food at its best and it pairs famously with our Sag Aloo and Raita recipes too.

The Mexican Option

If you’re in the mood for a warming chilli, this is the recipe for you! A staple of the vegan diet, our chili uses wholesome black beans as well carrots, potatoes, onions, and corn. Serve with tacos, spoon in a big dob of your chili filling, then top with grated vegan cheese and sour cream. If you want to go next level, serve this alongside our recipe for Guacamole and Tortilla Chips.

The Perfect Pasta

If time is of the essence, you can’t beat a hearty bowl of pasta to impress your guest. It’s tasty, filling, super quick, and easy to knock up. All you need for this spectacular 5-ingredient recipe is pasta, garlic-infused oil, chopped basil leaves, vegan cheese, and a jar of Slightly Different Tomato and Basil Sauce.

The Ultimate Mother’s Day Dessert

Every celebration needs to be rounded off with an amazing dessert and we’ve got just the thing! Our scrumptious pudding will be remembered long after it’s been devoured. Combining decadent chocolate, coconut, and strawberries, this is a must-have for your Mother’s Day meal, whether you’re vegan or not. And it almost looks too good to eat. Almost.

Have an amazing Mother’s Day!
