21 Vegan Recipes That Are Better Than Non-Vegan Recipes ( Seriously You Need To Try These)

Header image: Lauren Caris Cooks

Veganism is one of the biggest trends for 2018. The number of people following a vegan diet is on the rise and it is easy to see why. Many follow this lifestyle for the animals and others purely just to be healthier. Whatever the reason is, I don’t think it matters. I personally follow a plant-based diet. I prefer this term as people immediately start to judge when you say vegan. Not that I care, but I’m sick of hearing ,” But where do you get your protein?” . Anyways, this post isn’t about me or about veganism, but rather about the delicious, nutritious and easy vegan recipes that you just have to try now!

Contrary to popular belief, vegan recipes aren’t bland and just leaves. They are full of fibre, very tasty and satisfying. Let me know if you try any of these recipes.

Breakfast

4- Ingredient Pancakes

Pancakes are a Sunday brunch staple, and the fact that these little babies only contain 4 ingredients is an actual dream! Plus, they’re super tasty too.

Blueberry Oatmeal Waffles

My interest is instantly piqued when a recipe contains blueberries. The pairing of waffles and blueberries is a match made in heaven and has always been my favourite waffle combination.  This recipe is super simple too and I’m sure you’ll be making these often once you have tried them.
