We love plant-based meals for Meatless Monday, and we’re trying to incorporate them into the other days of the week, too. Sometimes, its hard to find great recipes, though. There are so many vegetarian resources, but we want the best vegan recipes! So we decided to collect a ridiculous number of them – 65 to be exact – so you’ll have your breakfast, lunch, dinner needs met. I hope that you’re all stocked up on pantry essentials for your plant-based kitchen!
After compiling this list, I can absolutely say these are the best vegan recipes out there – both from our own SkinnyMs archives as well as the popular food blogs Smitten Kitchen, Gimme Some Oven, Chocolate Covered Katie, Minimalist Baker, and Pinch of Yum. These recipes not only cover all meal times (including snacks and desserts), but they span all varieties of cuisine, too. There are classic comfort foods as well as Asian-inspired meals and Mexican favorites. We think there’s really something for everyone in this list of best vegan recipes – including the non-vegan eaters in your life.
