Is it possible to go vegan on Slimming World and save money? The answer to that is yes! We still aren’t fully vegan ourselves. We’re getting there.

Regardless of if you attend a Slimming World group or not, these vegan meals can help you save money and eat better. They can help you food optimize and be part of your healthy extra or free food plan.

It’s a slow process but one that the family are slowly embracing.

How to do vegan on Slimming World

Add in Slimming World and a very limited budget and shopping starts to become a headache. Filling up your weekly meal plan becomes harder as you’re trying to think of vegan meals that are also Slimming World friendly. If this sounds like you then our 71 Slimming World vegan recipes in this post is going to be for you.

We want to take the headache out of trying to think up meal ideas while trying to save money for your family. You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy all these meal ideas either.

By just not buying as much meat or dairy you could not only be saving the planet but also saving money too. Soya or almond milk comes in cartons and is cheap at the budget supermarkets. Shops like Aldi and Lidi are also bringing in their own range of dairy-free and vegan products so don’t think that you have to switch back to a bigger supermarket.

If you’re near the start of your money-saving journey then here are 16 top tips to help your family get used to the idea of saving money while food shopping and how to start your money-saving journey:

1. Set boundaries – let everyone pick a meal to fill up your meal plan. Use our Slimming World vegan list below to help and takes the thinking time out of it.

2. Talk about it – remind everyone in the family why you all need to be saving money. Have a goal like a family holiday or a big day out. Have your progress pinned up on the fridge so that everyone can see your progress. It becomes almost a game on who can save more money during the month.

3. Don’t over talk it – banging on about what the kids can’t have isn’t going to make them want to save money. Remind them what they can have or encourage them to sell something old so they can buy something new.

4. Make a snack station – if your kids thrive on snacks like mine then set out their snacks for the whole day. That way they can pick when they eat them but when they are gone they are gone!

5. Educate the family – it’s mega awkward and will make you cringe but lay your cards on the table with the kids. Even younger ones like ours get that mummy needs to save money so that they can do all the fun things they love doing. We play a board game called Pay Day. It’s a great way to show kids how quickly money can be spent.

6. Start with sweet things – it’s hard but being on a budget means that some of the sweet things have to go. Making them instead can save you money. Can everyone switch to a lower brand or have them less to help the saving top up?

7. Cut everything into shapes – this works wonders for younger kids! Everything goes from fruit to sandwiches.

8. Keep it simple – saving money doesn’t have to be hard. Buy food that you all like but start at the bottom brand wise and make your way up. Nine times out of ten the kids won’t even notice that they aren’t eating branded items.

9. Create your own duct table reusable lunch bags. Great for picnics and weekends out.

10. Be prepared – saving money doesn’t mean extra work. You can make sandwiches the night before and prepare meals in a slow cooker or cut vegetables before you need them. There’s nothing like coming home to a meal ready and waiting for you.

11. Join our FREE saving money help in our Money Saving Mums Facebook group. Our safe community of parents are all in the same boat as you. Becoming debt free isn’t easy but together we can all help each other.

12. Use money managing apps like Snoop to keep your shopping bill under control. Using an app like Snoop* can really help you keep your money in check.

Snoop* can help you build up your savings while showing you exactly where your money is going. You can link all your accounts to it. It’s very transparent! It’s free to use and perfect if you prefer all your knowledge in one place.

14. Go through all your bills and check you’re on the best deal. This should be done at least every 6 months. We all know we should be doing it regularly and it really can save you money.

44. Chickpea curry

61 Budget Vegan Slimming World Recipes for the Whole Family (14)

This is a really easy chickpea curry that is perfect for the whole family. It costs under £1 a head for 4 people and you can use all your cupboard staples with it including tins of chickpeas, tomatoes, and loads of ground spices.

You can cook our chickpea curry here.

Cook time for this simple chickpea curry is about 20 minutes depending on how you like your chickpeas. We like ours really soft so tend to wait until the liquid has reduced quite a lot. If you like your curry spicy then you could add some curry powder or red pepper. To help make this creamy you could add yogurt as well as coconut milk. You could also add a dash of lime juice. If you are using the slow cooker then we would suggest you make the paste as below and then add everything to the slow cooker. Put it on high heat for 6 – 8 hours as the liquid does need to reduce.

For the paste:

2 tbsp oil 5p

100g frozen onion 25p

5g dried chilli 5p

9 garlic cloves 25p

5g ground ginger 5p

5g ground coriander 5p

7g ground cumin 5p

5g garam masala 5p

10g tomato purée 11p

For the curry:

2 x 400g tin chickpeas £1.10

400g tin canned tomatoes 42p

100g tin coconut milk (optional) 18p

100g spinach (optional) 20p

250g rice 40p

Total: £3.21 that’s 80p for 4 people.

Start by making the paste. Add the oil then fry off over medium heat with the onion and chilli flakes until the onion is clear. This is when you want to put the rice on as per the packet instructions. Whizz up the garlic cloves, ginger, coriander, cumin, garam masala, tomato purée, and salt. Once it’s turned into a smooth paste, add it to the pan.

Stirring occasionally will help the paste not stick to the pan or wok. Drain the chickpeas and add them and the chopped tomatoes to the pan. Turn the heat down and simmer for 5 minutes. This will help all the liquid to reduce down. If you like your curry creamy, then add the coconut milk and keep reducing it down for another 5-10 minutes. When the curry is ready, add the spinach.
