I have another simple Riley riddle for the community here; good luck to you all!

Stab at the infix, it’s hidden quite well; fall into aheap, but remove the shell.

Test the prefix for taste, a simple vegan meal; just don’t forget, the end you must peel.

Eat at the suffix, but wash your hands first; it’s time for dinner, go quench your thirst.

All together you’ll find, a word hard to rhyme; you’ll find it don’t worry, all in due time.

Maybe you’re hungry, would you like to join? A dinner for two, on the flip of a coin.

Explain the acrostic.

It could be:

VEGETABLE

Stab at the infix, it’s hidden quite well; fall into aheap, but remove the shell.

If you remove the thick two-letter shell of the word "aheap", you get the letter E

Test the prefix for taste, a simple vegan meal; just don’t forget, the end you must peel.

the prefix of vegan is VEG, also if you "peel" the last two letters, that's what you get.

Eat at the suffix, but wash your hands first; it’s time for dinner, go quench your thirst.

eat at the TABLE

All together you’ll find, a word hard to rhyme; you’ll find it don’t worry, all in due time.

I can't think of a rhyme for vegetable... maybe festival?

Maybe you’re hungry, would you like to join? A dinner for two, on the flip of a coin.

I bet there exists a coin that has a vegetable on one side. And yes, I would like to join!

Explain the acrostic.

You can steam vegetables. And then eat them. Because they are steamed vegetables. Yummy!

Is it

a banana bar? I hope so, now I'm hungry. And banana is hard to rhyme with (Fie Fie fofana).

Prefix

banana - a simple vegan meal. and remember to peel the right end!

Infix

you can find "nab" in the bananabar if you remove the space and shell

Suffix

you can eat at a bar and quench your thirst.

Acrostic

Steam. Well, you can steam plantains, which are bananas. I think you can also make banana bars using steam, but I'm not a cook.

I'm a first timer, so not real sure I'm doing any of this site justice:

I'm guessing based on keywords:

STEAM, hidden, remove the shell, vegan meal, & peel. -- Hard Boiled Eggs
