Savory Vegan Recipes
Easy Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers! With Avocado from Healthy Happy Life
Kathy loves this recipe because it’s been a favorite personal recipe of her’s (years before she started blogging). It’s a perfect comfort food crowd pleaser!
Twisted Mushroom Reuben Sandwich from My Goodness Kitchen
Whenever Amanda is feeling a little nostalgic for the time before she went vegan, she’ll make this meaty, meatless sandwich. It makes her feel like she’s sitting in a New York deli!
One-Pot Vegan Mac & Cheese from Strength and Sunshine
Rebecca loves this recipe because it’s GF, vegan, and allergy-free (no nuts!)… Plus, mac and cheese is the ultimate in comfort food!
Although, I’m partially convinced she loves this recipe solely to freak everyone out with her obsession with ketchup + mac ‘n’ cheese… But that’s just my opinion! 😉
Easy Vegetable and Dumpling Soup from Vegan Sandra
Sandra absolutely loves this easy vegetable and dumpling soup. It’s like chicken soup (but better!) and you don’t need any store-bought vegetable broth! Woot woot!
Vegan Carrot Hot Dogs from Where You Get Your Protein
Marlena loves these carrot hot dogs! They are a healthy twist on an unhealthy classic. Her topping must-haves are: mustard, ketchup, diced onion and avocado!
BBQ Vegan Ribs With Sticky Tamarind BBQ Sauce from Sunnyside Hanne
Johanne remembers the go-to celebration meal at her house: ribs, sweet potatoes and sweet corn. Birthdays, Homecomings, that’s what was on the table! According to Johanne, it was the most American meal her Danish mom could think of… Sweet food memories!
Roasted Tomato Chickpea Soup from V Nutrition
One of Mary’s favorite vegan recipes is this Roasted Tomato and Chickpea Soup. She always has the ingredients on hand, so even if she’s feeling too tired to do much cooking, she can still make this and still get a healthy meal on the table!
All-American Hot Dogs, Three Ways from The Nut-Free Vegan
Steven always loved hot dogs before going vegan, and luckily some of the recent creations from faux-meat brands—especially Field Roast—make it easy for him to incorporate humane versions back into his diet!
Vegan Sushi from Beautiful Ingredient
What Kari always loved about sushi is all here – the beauty, the bite, the flavor – with a nutrient-packed grain alternative. Seafood is not missed!
Cheap and Easy Vegan Breakfast Burrito Bowl from Serving Realness
Is it my turn!? Oh jeeze, I don’t think I can accurately summarize how much I love this recipe! Breakfast burritos have been a favorite of mine since the beginning of time. I mean, who can resist all those healthy, filling ingredients!?
Even better is a breakfast burrito in a bowl! Pile it high, my friends, you deserve to start your day with a healthy dose of fiesta.

Anjali loves being able to re-create healthier versions of Thai favorites at home!

Kelly used to love caesar salad dressing, but stopped eating it for many reasons. That’s why she loves her veganized version of it!
Sweet Vegan Recipes
Vegan Banana Ginger Double Chocolate Pancakes from Sipping on Soy
Aaliyah is obsessed with both pancakes and chocolate, so this is the perfect combination! Something about these pancakes is so so so comforting. They are just SO. FREAKING. YUMMY. And healthy to boot!
Aunt Betty’s Vegan Apple Pie from Fried Dandelions
Sarah read my mind with this recipe (and heart-warming story)!
She was taught by her Aunt Betty how to make Apple Pie one summer, and still has the recipe written in her 12-year-old handwriting! Her Aunt was a fabulous home chef and she passed her love of cooking on to Sarah. Her pie is the ultimate comfort food, and Sarah thinks of her Aunt every time she makes it!
Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Truffle Cake from Rhian’s Recipes
Rhian loves this cake because it’s always popular with vegans and non-vegans alike. Plus, she thinks it’s fun to ask people to guess what the frosting is made with! Any guesses?
Vegan Crepe Recipe from Naomi Djese
Naomi absolutely loves crepes and is so glad she can still have them now! She made it for her non-vegan family members and they loved it.
Loved Up Raw Chocolate Cake from My Goodness Kitchen
This recipe is a love letter to Amanda’s family for Valentine’s Day. Nut-free, Dairy-free, Gluten-free and vegan. What else could a vegan chocolate-lover ask for!?
Vegan New York Cheesecake from A Virtual Vegan
Cheesecake was Melanie’s favorite dessert ever before going vegan, and whilst all of the raw cheesecakes around are lovely, nothing can beat a proper baked cheesecake! So she created this and now makes it all the time, switching it up with different toppings!
PB&J Pie With Chocolate Crust from Two City Vegans
PB and Js are Casey’s favorite food, and this pie makes it into a sinfully delicious treat! He could eat peanut butter in every meal if he wanted, but when in a dessert, it is even more comforting and tasty.
I agree, PB&J for the win!
Outrageously Easy Chocolate Pudding from The Lazy Vegan Baker
When Jenny needs something ultra rich and comforting without much effort, this is what she whips up! This is a favorite of kids and adults.. who can say no to chocolate pudding?! She loves making it for parties. It’s fun to dress up with fruit and cream, very versatile!
