Vegan Recipes You Must Try

Written by Eliana Parker

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:
