5 Vegan Meals To Make This Month


By Kate Hoffman

When people hear, “this is vegan!,” they tend to immediately pass on whatever is in front of them. The stereotypes of “no flavor!” and “what is this made of, grass?” are totally outdated and untrue! The internet has been a fabulous tool for vegans to unite and share the animal-free recipes that are near and dear to their hearts.

Check out our list of some of the best around:

If you know anything about vegan cooking, you have probably heard of Angela Liddon, the beautiful creator of Oh She Glows, a vegan food blog that has resulted in multiple best-selling cookbooks. This gorgeous breakfast parfait makes you actually WANT to get out of bed on a cold, dark morning.

After the sugar bomb of Halloween candy we all dutifully consumed, it’s nice to have a lower-sugar treat that combines protein and festive pumpkin-goodness that doesn’t leave you crashing an hour later. Perfect for a post-workout snack!

Roasted Red Pepper Mac & Cheese

For those days when all you want to do is crawl in bed with a giant bowl of pasta and binge watch an entire Netflix series, this mac n “cheese” is the perfect comfort dish that is entirely plant based.

Vegan Eggplant Meatballs

Skinnytaste tends to be my go-to site for lightened-up versions of all my favorite dishes. These “meat” balls are no exception! They will satisfy any meat-lover and pairing them with zoodles (zucchini noodles) increases the nutrition factor.

Creamy Fingerling Potato Salad

There are definitely more options than just salad for vegan side dishes! This delicious recipe is filling and healthy, combining potatoes with a delicious vegan sauce to make anyone relish the dish.
