We know it sounds like a paradox, but these recipes are so good, non-vegans everywhere will be left exclaiming ‘I can’t believe it’s vegan!’

The Burger

Let’s start with burgers. Everybody loves a good burger, and vegans are no exception. The key to good vegan food is just making a good vegan food, not trying to make it into something else. This isn’t a ‘vegan hamburger’, it’s just a burger that happens to be vegan. It isn’t trying to be anything it isn’t, it’s just trying to be delicious, (and succeeding!). Try it yourself!

The Pie

Dessert. We’ve all been there, you’re one vegan friend is coming, and your gluten-free friend as well. What the heck do you do for dessert? It’s easy to fall back on a fruit-salad, but there’s so much more you can do. Blissful Basil’s Mini Key Lime Pie’s will leave everybody smiling, and only contain 6 ingredients – perfect.

The Comfort-Food

Believe it or not, the comfort-food element of a stew is in the flavor, not the meat. This particular recipe is also a one-pot-wonder so we’re twice as inclined to do. Not a bad plan for a lazy weeknight dinner!

The Mexican

Mexican food. Flavorful, filling, fun, family-friendly. Can it get better? Yes, yes it can. Here’s how: Add slices of avocado, hummus, meaty (but still meat-free) portobello mushrooms, and fresh arugula. Oh and did we mention they only take 20 minutes to make?

The Breakfast

Why wouldn’t you have crepes for breakfast? Slow breakfasts are the ultimate luxury. And when your breakfast crepe recipe as healthy as this is, it makes perfect sense. What else would you be eating?

The Pasta

You thought sweet potato fries were incredible? Sweet potato pasta is better. Add a creamy cashew sauce, and some greens and you’ve got a full-blown meal.

The Poke

Have you heard of poke yet? It’s a hawaiian raw fish salad, usually served as an appetiser. Poke bares a lot of resemblance to Asian cuisines and tends to contain sesame oil, green onions, chili and soy sauce, amongst other things. This version swaps out fish for tofu. And I know what I said earlier about vegan foods trying to be other foods, this recipe is not tofu trying to be fish, it’s just poke without the fish – which is equally delicious. All I’m saying is, try it, you won’t regret it!
