Delicious veggie and vegan dishes to add to your weeknight menu.

As the weather gets colder, you'll start craving those warm, hearty meals at dinner time.

However, if you're following a plant-based diet or you're skipping out on meat altogether, here's some delicious recipe inspiration to follow Meat-free Monday.

Vegan pizza

If you're in the mood for Italian, this recipe has a step-by-step guide to making the dough, as well as an aubergine 'bacon' - thin rashers of eggplant with maple and paprika. Delicious.

Vegetarian baked rice enchilada

If kneading dough is too much to think about on a Monday, an super-quick Mexican dish will satify the family and leave you enough time to enjoy some time on the couch, too.

Keralan veggie curry poppadoms, rice and minty yoghurt

Jamie Oliver is the king of the midweek meal - and here he shares his 15-minute Keralan veggie curry with aromatic rice and a zesty mint yoghurt side. You'll be amazed at how simple this dish is to make.

Mega veggie burger

Another one of Jamie's recipes, this burger has tofu as a pattie and a creamy basil dressing that will fill any hungry tummy. Best of all, this dish is low-cal, but doesn't compromise on taste.

Spanish veggie paella 

This one-pot wonder dish uses ingredients that you're bound to have at home in your pantry. Make a pot of paella for a hearty meal and a delicious leftover lunch the next day.
