Many people are making the transition into veganism, but for some, it seems like an impossible plant-based hill to climb. Often, the biggest concerns when making the switch to this lifestyle are: “How will I get enough protein?” and “How do I make vegan food taste good?”.
Vegan food doesn’t mean you have to miss out on any of the foods you love! It’s all about creativity and ingenuity. Whether you’re already vegan, thinking about going vegan, newly vegan, or just looking for new delicious recipes, here are some of my favourite delicious vegan recipes that will leave you feeling satisfied:
Vegan Chicken Alfredo

In a large pan, lightly sautee your “chicken” in olive oil over medium heat with salt, rosemary, and pepper to taste. Put aside in a separate bowl. Melt the butter with the olive oil in the pan over medium heat. Add onions and garlic until translucent, then add mushrooms. Once all the vegetables are soft, add the flour to toast it, stirring frequently, until golden. Add the vegetable broth, non-dairy milk, salt, pepper, and rosemary and stir. Bring to a light boil and then add your al-dente pasta of choice. Mix it all together until the pasta is at your perfect consistency Add the “chicken” and lemon juice Garnish with fresh herbs and enjoy!

Preheat your oven to 450º and line your baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine flour, non-dairy milk, garlic powder, salt, pepper and paprika until well mixed. Evenly coat your cauliflower in the mixture and place your cauliflower on the baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, flip, and then bake for another 10 minutes. While your cauliflower is in the oven, take a small bowl and combine buffalo sauce, honey (or agave or maple syrup), and coconut oil and stir until consistent. Brush the buffalo sauce mixture onto the cauliflower and bake for another 20 minutes. Serve cauliflower with vegan ranch on the side. Enjoy!
