Whether you’ve adopted a completely vegan lifestyle or are simply looking to eat a little healthier, when done correctly, a vegan diet is a totally safe way to live and eat more consciously. But especially if you are just starting out, it may seem like going vegan means eliminating all flavor and texture from your meals entirely.
To prove vegan food can be healthy and delicious, we’ve gathered our top vegan recipes that are so good you won’t even miss the meat.
Kashmiri Potato Curry
There are a handful of amazing, traditional Indian dishes that are vegan or can easily be prepared to be, like this potato curry. Replace the yogurt in the curry with coconut milk or another alternative to keep this dish dairy-free.
Avocado Pesto Tartines
The traditional version of this recipe calls for mozzarella cheese, which can be skipped to make these tasty toasts vegan-friendly! These are perfect as part of a larger meal, or can also make for a delicious light lunch.
Most of the ingredients in this dish, like micro greens, blood oranges, and blackberries, are best in the summertime. But if you live in a warm climate, or have access to high quality produce from a local farmer’s market or grocer, this salad is unbeatable.
Herb Tofu-Stuffed Peppers
Many people are afraid to use tofu in cooking (the texture isn’t for everyone), but when prepared correctly, it’s a perfectly delicious alternative to meat and a flavorful addition to these vegan-friendly stuffed peppers.
Cauliflower with Ginger and Cumin
Another traditional Indian dish, this spicy cauliflower is surprisingly filling and holds up to the bold flavors of curry and ginger. The amount of seasoning can be adjusted to fit your desired level of spiciness, too.
