2. Vegan nacho cheese

An ample serving of nutritional yeast and a tablespoon of white miso give this vegan cheese the flavorful kick you won't find in many grocery store vegan cheeses. And of course, if you want something less intense, you can simply use less nutritional yeast. Recipe here.

3. Crispy falafels

Have you heard the good news about pan-fried falafel patties yet? They're crunchy, savory, and can be paired with just about any type of green to make a complete meal. Recipe here.


9. Miso, Spinach, And Mushroom Ramen

Never underestimate the power of mushrooms and a miso slurry to transform a simple vegetable broth into a tasty, lick-your-bowl-clean ramen base. Recipe here.

10. Tempeh Reuben

Vegans know that there are a ton of non-animal source of protein, with tempeh being one of the most flexible ones. Sweeten it up to make orange tempeh, or use liquid smoke to make the spicy, savory variation above. Recipe here.


17. Fried Rice

18. Sloppy Joes

19. Vegan Meatballs

Twirling pasta around a fork and biting into a giant "meatball" has got to be one of the funnest eating experiences, and no vegan should go without it. Recipe here.


22. Vegan Beef Stroganoff

24. Lasagna With Hummus Tofu Ricotta

You could technically buy a vegan ricotta substitute, or you can make this lasagna with vegan tofu-hummus ricotta that is somehow able to perfectly replicate the dairy stuff. Pro tip: Make extra tofu ricotta to snack on later. Recipe here.

26. Potato And Onion Omelette

Thanks to chickpea flour, you can get a hearty serving of protein with every bite. (And have an answer for every time your friends ask you how you're getting your protein 🙃.) Recipe here.
