Healthy Vegan Aldi Recipes that are easy to prepare, frugal, and family friendly. These plant based Aldi dinner recipes are perfect for anybody on a budget, searching for healthy recipes, or on a weight loss journey.
Do you enjoy healthy recipes on a budget?
I always shop at Aldi, which saves a lot of money on groceries. The recipes below are adjustable to your budget and taste. Pick the vegetables that are on sale, in season, or that you enjoy. I add lentils or beans to almost every dinner for protein, fiber, and other important minerals.
You don’t have to call yourself a ‘vegan’ to try these Vegan Aldi Recipes and enjoy the health benefits of a plant based diet. Most of my recipes average between $1.40 and $1.70 per plate which is very affordable.
Most of the vegan Aldi recipes below (especially #3 and #6) are freezable. You can cook larger portions and use meal prep containers to store the food in the freezer. Place the containers in the fridge the night before use. I also like to cook larger portions to have lunch for the next day.
