I’ve gathered my 10 favorite vegan burrito recipes to share with you today. From breakfast burritos to burritos loaded with spicy seitan, you’ll find plenty of inspiration here.

Read on for all the details on building the ultimate vegan burrito!

1. Ultimate Vegan Burrito

To make the ultimate vegan burrito, start by roasting some bell peppers and onions. This adds a delicious depth of flavor.

Next, cook up a pot of Mexican rice and season some black beans. Feel free to use leftover rice to make these burritos even quicker.

Sprinkle the rice and beans with taco seasoning or cumin, chili powder and garlic powder. Sauté some mushrooms, onions and peppers if you want more veggies.

From there, load up your tortilla with the ingredients and top with guacamole, salsa and hot sauce. The fresh components like lettuce, tomatoes and cilantro add a nice crunch too. It’s the perfect meatless meal!

2. Vegan Mushroom Burritos

Mushrooms make a fantastic meat substitute in vegan burritos. Their hearty, meaty texture soaks up all the taco flavors.

For an easy weeknight dinner, sauté some mushrooms and onions in olive oil and taco seasoning. Make sure to cook them until they’re nicely browned.

Meanwhile, warm up some leftover rice you have on hand and heat some refried beans.

Throw everything together in a tortilla along with some shredded vegan cheese, salsa, guacamole – whatever your heart desires! The mushrooms add plenty of flavor on their own.

I love these mushroom burritos because they come together so quickly. Keeping pre-cooked rice in the fridge helps cut down on time too.

3. Easy Refried Bean Burrito

When time is short, an easy vegan burrito filled with refried beans really hits the spot. If you want to make your own refried beans, cook up some pinto beans with onion, garlic and spices. Then mash them and cook to thicken.

Canned refried beans work great too – just look for vegan varieties without lard. Sauté some onions and peppers if you want extra flavor.

Stuff your tortilla with the beans, Mexican rice, and toppings like vegan cheese, lettuce, tomato and guacamole. I love Daiya’s dairy-free shredded cheese because it melts beautifully.

Pan fry the burrito in some oil to get it hot and crispy. Enjoy this fast and tasty meal any night of the week. The convenience of canned refried beans makes this burrito super simple.

4. Vegan Cheesy Potato Burritos

For an ultra-comforting vegan burrito, you can’t go wrong with potatoes and melty vegan cheese. Russet or red potatoes work well here since they hold their shape when cooked.

Start by chopping some potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Toss them with olive oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder and salt. Roast at 400°F until crispy and browned.

Meanwhile, prepare a pot of cilantro lime rice to complement the spicy potatoes.

Assemble your burritos by layering the tortillas with rice, roasted potatoes, shredded vegan cheese and other toppings.

These cheesy potato burritos deliver total taco flavor without any meat. It’s budget-friendly too, thanks to inexpensive potatoes and rice.

5. Best Vegan Breakfast Burritos

Wake up to a satisfying vegan breakfast burrito loaded with all your favorite components. The star of this burrito is the tofu scramble seasoned with nutritional yeast and spices.

In the same skillet, sauté some diced onions, peppers, corn and potatoes until softened. Season with plenty of taco spices.

Add black beans, cooked rice and diced tomatoes to the veggie mixture. Let it all heat through until piping hot.

Pile the bean and veggie filling into the crisp tortilla shell. Top with guacamole, vegan cheese shreds, salsa and anything else you love!

7. Southwest Tofu Burritos

Marinated and seasoned tofu makes a fantastic filling for these Southwest-inspired burritos. Firm or extra-firm tofu works best, as it holds up well when cooked.

Start by pressing the tofu to remove excess moisture. Then cube it and toss with chili powder, cumin, paprika and garlic. The spices infuse the tofu with lots of flavor.

While your rice is cooking, sauté the tofu in oil until lightly browned. Warm up some beans or veggies too.

Stuff your tortillas with the seasoned tofu, beans, rice, peppers, corn, etc. Finish it off with creamy guacamole, salsa and dairy-free cheese. The tofu and beans provide a double dose of plant-based protein.

Fans of Chipotle’s veggie burritos will love this homemade version, complete with flavorful cilantro lime rice.

Cook the rice in vegetable broth and stir in chopped cilantro and lime juice. This bright, fresh rice complements the heartier burrito fillings.

Sauté some bell peppers and onions for extra flavor. Heat your beans and assemble all the components in a tortilla.

Of course, it’s not a Chipotle-style burrito without the creamy, spicy sauce. Combine vegan mayo with sour cream, lime juice and your favorite hot sauce.

Pile on the toppings like guacamole, lettuce, and pico de gallo too. The fresh flavors in this burrito are incredible.

9. Sheet Pan Vegan Chick’n Burritos

These sheet pan burritos feature spicy vegan “chick’n” along with colorful veggies. The chick’n is made from pressed and seasoned tofu.

Start by draining and pressing the tofu to remove moisture. Then cube it and toss with spices like garlic powder, paprika, chili powder and cumin.

Spread the tofu on a sheet pan and add sliced bell peppers and onions. Roast everything at 400°F until lightly charred.

When you’re ready to assemble the burritos, stir together the tofu chick’n and veggies with beans, guacamole, rice—anything you want!

Everything cooks together easily on one sheet pan, keeping dinner simple. These protein-packed burritos will satisfy any craving.

10. “Beefy” Vegan Burritos

For a heartier vegan burrito, try using seitan that mimics the taste and texture of ground beef. Seitan is made from wheat and packed with protein.

Sauté the seitan in a skillet with onions, garlic, chili powder and spices until browned. Season it generously for serious taco flavor.

In your tortilla, layer the seitan with refried beans, Mexican rice, sautéed bell peppers and melted vegan cheese.

Garnish your burrito with all the fixings like lettuce, pico de gallo, guacamole and vegan sour cream. The “beefy” seitan elevates this burrito to the next level.

In this roundup, I’ll be sharing 34 of my favorite easy vegan Indian recipes, from crispy pakoras to creamy curries, fluffy breads, and sweet treats. These dishes capture the diverse flavors of India, while honoring timeless culinary traditions.

So let’s dive in and explore the wonderful world of vegan Indian cooking!

1. Coconut Ladoo

Let’s start with a classic Indian sweet – coconut ladoo. These melt-in-your-mouth morsels are made from just a few simple ingredients – coconut milk, shredded coconut, raw sugar, and cardamom. The combination creates a mildly spicy, perfectly sweetened coconut flavor.

Coconut ladoo is a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth without overindulging. The naturally sweet coconut provides just the right amount of sugar. I like to enjoy one or two after a meal.

2. Vegan Palak Paneer with Tofu

Palak paneer is a popular Indian dish of creamy spinach combined with paneer cheese. My vegan version uses extra-firm tofu in place of the paneer. Marinated and roasted, the tofu provides a rich, nutty flavor that pairs beautifully with the spiced spinach puree.

This recipe comes together quickly but packs delicious complexity. The spinach is first cooked down with onions, garlic, and ginger. Then it’s spiced with cumin, coriander, and garam masala.

Roasting the tofu gives it a lightly crispy texture on the outside while keeping the inside soft and creamy. Served over basmati rice, it’s flavorful and fulfilling.

3. Turmeric Lemon Rice

For a simple, nutritious side dish, try this turmeric lemon rice. It combines the earthy aroma of turmeric with bright citrus and fluffy basmati rice. The turmeric adds a lovely golden color while providing anti-inflammatory benefits.

I love serving this rice alongside rich curries or dals. The tart lemon cuts through the heaviness and helps cleanse the palate. Garnish with toasted nuts or fresh herbs to dress it up. It also makes an easy packed lunch on its own.

This dish proves you don’t need a complicated recipe to create something delicious and nourishing.

4. Vegan Chickpea Curry Stew

When I want a hearty plant-based meal, this easy chickpea curry stew really satisfies. It’s packed with protein from the chickpeas and iron from the spinach. Diced tomatoes provide a fresh flavor contrast to the creamy coconut milk.

This is a simple one-pot dish that comes together in 30 minutes but tastes like it simmered for hours. For extra heat, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes.

I recommend serving it over brown rice or quinoa to complete the meal. The possibilities for customization here are endless, so have fun with it!

5. Quick Masala Dosa

Let’s move on to a savory crepe known as a dosa. Traditional dosa recipes require time to ferment the batter. But my quick masala dosa eliminates that step by using rice and chickpea flour.

The result is a lightly crispy crepe with a delicious sourdough tang. For the filling, I use a flavorful potato curry spiced with mustard seeds, chiles, and fresh curry leaves. It strikes a perfect balance of spicy, savory and subtly sweet.

Dosa makes a satisfying breakfast, lunch, or dinner when served with fresh chutney.

6. Vegetable and Chickpea Coconut Curry

Coconut curries are an easy way to infuse dishes with rich, exotic flavor. This recipe combines a creamy coconut broth with chopped vegetables, chickpeas, and warming spices like coriander, cumin, and turmeric.

In less than an hour, you can have a fragrant, hearty plant-based meal on the table. Potatoes provide starchy substance while spinach adds a pop of color and nutrition.

To enhance the flavors, I recommend squeezing fresh lime juice over the curry before serving. A pinch of red pepper flakes also brings a nice heat. This is comfort food at its best!

7. Tempeh Stir-Fry in a Ginger Coconut Sauce

When time is short, this simple tempeh stir-fry comes together in a flash. Diced tempeh provides a meaty texture that pairs nicely with crisp-tender vegetables. The quick ginger coconut sauce can be made with pantry staples.

A sprinkle of red pepper flakes adds a touch of heat while amino acids offer an umami flavor boost. Served over rice or noodles, it’s a fast and easy weeknight meal.

Like with many stir-fries, feel free to improvise with whatever vegetables are on hand for a customized dish.

8. Vegan Red Lentil Curry

Red lentils make a wonderful base for vegan curries since they break down into a creamy texture as they cook. This easy red lentil curry simmers the legumes in a lightly spiced tomato sauce. Garlic, ginger, cumin and coriander add layers of flavor.

For some freshness, I love topping this curry with cilantro. Serve it alongside basmati rice or warm naan bread. The red lentils provide fiber and protein for a nutritious, plant-based meal that comes together quickly.

Spice it up with some added heat if you like!

9. Vegan Kheer

Let’s take a break from savory recipes to try this comforting vegan kheer. Kheer is a classic Indian rice pudding, typically made with cow’s or coconut milk. My dairy-free version uses nutty oat milk and a touch of saffron for richness.

The oats and oat milk create a naturally sweetened creamy base, with cardamom providing a subtle, exotic spice. It’s perfect for dessert or even breakfast. For added texture, top with toasted nuts or coconut flakes.

I hope this recipe brings a taste of India straight to your kitchen in the easiest way possible.

10. Almond Flour Badam Katli

Badam katli is a beloved Indian sweet made from flour, sugar, cardamom and nuts. It has a melt-in-your-mouth texture similar to a shortbread cookie. My version uses almond flour for a naturally nutty flavor and sweetness.

A pinch of saffron provides an exotic aroma and golden color. Feel free to customize this recipe with your choice of nut butter, alternative flours or spices like cinnamon or rose water.

However you make it, badam katli is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. Enjoy it with an afternoon tea or as a dessert.

11. Chana Masala

No roundup of Indian recipes is complete without chana masala. Chickpeas smothered in an incredible onion-tomato sauce, this dish is bursting with incredible flavors. Garlic, ginger, and aromatics like bay leaf infuse the sauce with layers of flavor.

However you enjoy it, chana masala is the ultimate crowd-pleaser. The aroma alone will have your mouth watering!

12. Tofu Makhani

Get your spice fix with this satisfying tofu makhani. The star ingredient is the rich, creamy tomato-cashew sauce. Garam masala, cumin, and smoked paprika add depth and just a touch of heat.

Silky tofu provides substance while soaking up all the flavors of the sauce. I love serving this with freshly baked naan to mop up every last drop.

Garnish with cilantro for color and freshness. This sauce also pairs well with steamed vegetables or rice if you want to change it up.

13. Jackfruit Curry

For a meatless dish with texture, try this jackfruit curry. Young, unripe jackfruit has a stringy consistency similar to pulled meat. When cooked in a flavorful coconut milk-based gravy, it absorbs the spices and seasons beautifully.

Along with jackfruit, this curry contains potatoes for heartiness and tomato for a touch of tanginess. Seasoned with garlic, ginger, cumin and coriander, the flavors come together in perfect balance.

I recommend serving it alongside basmati rice or warm naan bread for soaking up the scrumptious sauce.

14. Vegan Saag Paneer

Saag paneer is another Indian restaurant classic made vegan and easy. Just like my palak paneer recipe, this one uses marinated tofu to recreate the texture of paneer cheese. Chopped spinach provides the “saag” component.

Garlic, ginger, and spices infuse the dish with aromatic flavor. For extra creaminess, I sometimes add a spoonful of cashew cream.

There are so many ways to customize this recipe based on your tastes and what you have on hand. However you make it, saag paneer is the ultimate comfort food.

15. Tawa Burgers

Let’s switch things up with a vegan twist on Indian burgers! Tawa burgers get their name from the cast iron griddle (tawa) used to cook them. The patties are made of potatoes and chickpeas seasoned with classic Indian spices.

I love serving them on buns with chopped onion, sliced tomatoes, and tart schezwan chutney. For added crunch, top with crispy fried capsicum.

Unlike beef hamburgers, these burgers are full of fiber, plant-based protein, and nutrients. They make for a satisfying yet lighter meal than their meaty counterparts.

16. Easy 3-Ingredient Vegan Roti

Freshly baked Indian flatbreads like roti or naan are the perfect accompaniment to flavorful curries and dals. My simplified 3-ingredient roti requires no yeast or long rise time. It’s made with just flour, garlic paste, and sea salt.

The soft dough comes together quickly then gets rolled and cooked on a hot skillet. I love stuffing it with spicy potato mixtures for a meal on the go.

Drizzle with melted vegan butter or coconut oil for extra richness. This naan also pairs nicely with soups, salads, or simply enjoyed by itself.

17. Vegan Bombay Potatoes

For a delicious vegan side dish, try these flavor-packed bombay potatoes.

Cubed potatoes are tossed in aromatic spices like cumin, coriander, turmeric, and chili powder, cooking until perfectly tender. Mustard seeds and curry leaves provide nutty, earthy notes.

A squeeze of lemon gives the dish some zing. This combination of sweet and savory flavors is hard to resist.

I like to enjoy bombay potatoes as the ideal complement to rich curries. The possibilities for mixing up the spices are endless depending on your tastes.

18. Vegan Chickpea Curry

When time is of the essence, this quick vegan chickpea curry can be ready in under 30 minutes. The base contains onion, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, and basic curry spices like cumin, coriander, turmeric, and garam masala. From there, just add any vegetables you have on hand!

Hardy veggies like cauliflower, carrots, and potatoes work well, as do canned chickpeas or lentils.

Finish with a dash of lime juice and cilantro for acidity and freshness. Serve over rice or with warm naan bread for an easy, budget-friendly curry.

19. Vegan Butter Chicken

Butter chicken is a creamy, tangy, slightly spicy curry dish that packs some serious flavor.

A touch of coconut milk lends sweetness to balance the spices. Spoon this satisfying curry over basmati rice for the ultimate comfort meal.

20. Vegan Bombay Carrot Salad

Carrots are the surprise star ingredient in this vibrant vegan salad. Shredded raw carrots get massaged with lemon, olive oil, cumin, and other flavorful spices. Raisins add pops of sweetness while pistachios provide crunch.

The dressing soaks into the carrots, infusing them with bright, bold flavors. Topped with crunchy roasted chickpeas and vegan yogurt, this salad makes a light yet totally satisfying lunch or side dish.

Play around with the spices to make this recipe your own.

21. Vegan Dal Makhani

With its rich, complex flavors, dal makhani is one of my favorite Indian dishes to make vegan. Traditionally a labor of love, this version simplifies the preparation by using canned beans.

Kidney beans and black lentils simmer together in a lightly spiced tomato and cashew cream sauce.

Onion, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, turmeric, black pepper, and chili powder build deep, warming flavors.

Allowing the dal to cook low and slow is key to letting the spices permeate the beans. Served over basmati rice with fresh naan, it’s pure comfort.

22. Tandoori Tofu Tikka Masala

Get your protein on with this satisfying tandoori tofu tikka masala. Tandoori tikka describes a dish where protein chunks are marinated in yogurt and Indian spices then grilled. For my vegan version, extra-firm tofu stands in for meat.

The marinated tofu gets a quick pan fry to char the edges. Then it simmers in an incredible creamy tomato curry sauce known as makhani.

Basmati rice makes the perfect base to soak up every last drop. Garnish with cilantro for added color and freshness in every bite.

23. Easy Vegan Naan Bread

Vindaloo is a spicy curry dish that originates from the southwestern coast of India. This vegan version packs all the signature flavors – a tangy tomato base with potatoes, warm spices like cumin and coriander, and a good hit of chili peppers.

I use a combination of cayenne and smoked paprika to provide layered heat. Crisp vegetables like cauliflower and green beans balance the soft potatoes. The flavors really bloom after simmering for 30 minutes or longer.

For toning down the spice, stir in some coconut milk. This dish truly brings the heat!

25. Vegan Indian Biryani

Biryani is a one-pot rice dish loaded with fragrant spices and vegetables. What I love about vegan biryani is how customizable it is. You can add any combination of vegetables, beans, nuts or meat substitutes.
