Transitioning to a plant based diet can be hard. Where do you start? What can you feed your family that they will actually eat (and enjoy)? Over the last year and a half, I have come across many vegan blogs. My favorite blogs are the ones that have recipes that use typical ingredients. If I can’t find the ingredients for a recipe at Target or Sprouts…. I am just not making it. I also prefer blogs that have family friendly recipes. My middle son will eat pretty much anything, but my oldest son is super picky and the 8 year old seems to be following in his footsteps.
My go-to blog for everyday dinners AND the absolute best cakes is ItDoesntTasteLikeChicken.com. She has FABULOUS recipes that use real ingredients. I also highly recommend her cookbook, Fuss Free Vegan (worth it for the cake recipes alone!) My favorite recipes on the blog are Vegan Tofu Taco Crumbles (hello taco Tuesday), Ultimate Chocolate Cake and Baked Tofu Bites. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter to receive a vegan recipe in your inbox weekly.
I recently discovered VeganHuggs.com and it quickly became one of my favorites. The first recipe I tried was Potato Leek Soup. We had it every week for at least a month, it was so delicious and perfect for winter. We also love her One Pot Basil-Tomato and Orzo for a quick weeknight dinner. Perfect for meatless Monday and kid approved!
One of the first blogs I came across when I started my vegan journey in August 2017 was MinimalistBaker.com. The best thing about these recipes is that they are either 10 ingredients or less, 30 minutes or less and/or one bowl! It doesn’t get much better than that! I particularly like the one bowl recipes. My sink always seems full of dishes after dinner. The blog also contains many vegan gluten-free recipes and helpful how-to videos. Be sure to try the Best Damn Vegan Biscuits and the Creamy Vegan Garlic Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes. I also highly recommend their cookbook Everyday Cooking. Tons of amazing recipes, each with a beautiful picture.
