Vegetarian White Chili
You guys know that I’m a chili lover. There is absolutely no question about this.
One pot recipes are always a hit: hassle free, easy to make and absolutely delicious when all the flavors combine.
Making a vegan chili is both simpel and exciting. Meat components are often replaced bit a variety of beans and sometimes more vegetables.

The Best Vegan Pot Pie
A comfort food classic, made vegan! Vegan Pot Pie is ready in about an hour, and makes a delicious main dish for any holiday. I suggest making the pie crusts ahead of time, or use store bought vegan pie crusts to make this even easier!

When we first moved to Arizona we experienced our first authentic paella at a Spanish restaurant in Scottsdale and we fell in love! It was hearty, aromatic and full of addictive flavors.
It’s a family-style meal that’s served in a paella pan right on your table. You don’t even need plates, you just dig right in! The ambiance of the restaurant is spot on with its rustic appeal and live Spanish music. We always have a great time when we go.

Vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup
Family, close friends, and Plant & Vine readers are well aware that I am a fan of mushrooms. Like a “make the family dog smell the mushrooms in the fridge so he can be my official mushroom sniffer and improve my meager chances of finding delicious, edible wild species on a mushroom hunt in the urban woods” type of fan. With cool fall evenings and winter quickly approaching, I’m all about the soups. So putting one and one together, here is a delicious vegan cream of mushroom soup rockin’ two different types of mushrooms.

Mushroom Burrito Bowl
I really like Mexican food. Actually, I probably would go as far as saying it’s my favourite cuisine. Fresh, vibrant and fun; it’s how food should be. This mushroom burrito bowl is easy, healthy and full of colour. Now, I’m not going to claim it as authentic Mexican. It’s more a Georgie Eats does Tex-Mex kinda thing. But, no matter the origin, one thing’s for sure: It’s Damn Delicious!

Coconut Curry with Crispy Tofu
I’m a sucker for curries. Especially when there is broccoli, sweet potato, and tofu involved. There is something about this combination…the sweetness of the coconut milk and sweet potato, the crispiness of the tofu, the broccoli and basmati rice soaking up all the flavors… I just love it.
I’ve had a very similar curry almost 10 years ago in Berlin, and whenever I make this curry, this reminds me of the trip. So the curry is comfort food for my belly and for my mind. And I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Vegan Pumpkin Ravioli
The pasta dough can be made in under 5 minutes and only requires 3 ingredients: flour, water and a little bit of olive oil. All you have to do is roll it out thinly, cut out circles, fill the circles with your favorite filling, seal them with a fork and boil them for 3 minutes.

Black Bean Soup
Today I’d like to introduce you to my favorite black bean soup! This affordable and humble soup recipe is anything but boring, especially served with a variety of toppings. The flavor is spot-on delicious, with the addition of lime juice and cumin. It’s not too spicy, so perfect for kids. But if you’re anything like me, you’ll add a good squeeze of sriracha in your bowl.

Bang Bang Cauliflower
Seriously, who knew cauliflower could be such a chameleon. I mean, once it’s prepped and tossed up in the sweet and spicy chilli sauce it’s hard to believe that it’s even cauliflower hidden under there!

This Vegan Eggplant Lasagna has layers of Eggplant “noodles”, a mind-blowing Vegan Ricotta Cheese, and hearty Lentil and Vegetable mixture, to make the dish more filling and provide extra plant-protein. Simply layer everything in a casserole dish and bake it a little in the oven!

Vegan Spring Rolls with Veggies
Most of us eat spring rolls as a starter in restaurants, a few of us will admit buying them as a frozen snack from time to time, but only a few of us have probably made them at home yet. But in fact, it’s easier than you think and gives you plenty of options for fillings, which is why for us, they are a wonderful way to use up leftover veggies.

Vegan Stuffed Shells with Spinach and Cashews
But in fact, the preparation is super easy: first prepare the stuffing, then cook pasta shells, fill and bake them. We decided on the vegan version of a classic spinach and ricotta filling, but used cashews instead of cheese. Instead of a tomato based sauce, we’ll cook a creamy béchamel, because why not! For this recipe, it’s important to drain the spinach (especially if you use frozen spinach) to avoid a watery stuffing. And by the way, if you don’t find any pasta shells, you can also make the recipe with cannelloni instead!

Vegan White Bean Soup
During the cold months, I love to make a variety of bean soups, like my Jamaican Gungo Peas Soup and my Split Peas Soup. They each give their unique flavor using basic ingredients such as onions, garlic, carrots, and potatoes.
I added coconut milk for extra creaminess and a combination of herbs for a unique taste. This soup has gusto and body, which is perfect for cold wintry days.

Our Chickpea salad recipe is a recipe that everyone can enjoy, making it perfect for your next outdoor party and a great addition or swap for your usual potato salad or coleslaw side dishes.

There’s something so amazing about noodles, isn’t there? They’re one of the most beloved foods in the world and are used in so many different cuisines.
While I traditionally enjoy my noodles with an Italian spin, today we’re giving you an Asian-inspired dish that is bursting with flavor, is easy to make and is hands down one of the most delicious recipes on this site!

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably tried several lentil loaf recipes. I’ve been vegan for nearly a decade now, and that’s almost 10 years of testing vegan recipes! I was never crazy about lentil “meatloaf” because I just couldn’t seem to get it right. Too often my loaf was mushy, sometimes even kind of “gummy” tasting. I remember one Thanksgiving making a recipe I was so excited about, and it just wasn’t good at all!
