Whether you’re trying to eat less meat, pack your meals with more produce, or go completely meat- and dairy-free, the idea of making vegan meals can be seriously daunting. Without meat, dairy, and other animal products, you’re often left with a plate full of plants — but most home cooks know what a wonderful opportunity that can be.

For new dieters or those who are practicing a flexitarian diet, vegan cuisine often gets a bad rep, as some may believe it’s automatically boring and bland. But the truth is that vegan recipes rely heavily on healthier substitutes and a plethora of fragrant spices to create better-for-you versions of our favorite classics — and unique plant-based meals all their own. We handpicked 70 of our favorite vegan recipes to prove that these dishes can be just as delicious and crowd-pleasing as their non-vegan counterparts. Here, you’ll find a variety of hearty vegan meals made with protein-rich whole grains, beans, and nuts, and packed with fresh and colorful fruits and veggies. With just a little creativity and these vegan recipes as your guide, you can pull together tasty plant-based breakfasts, soups, salads, mains, and entrées (even delicious vegan desserts) in no time. And we’ve got a mix of wholesome, healthy vegan recipes to feel good about, as well as indulgent picks (vegan pizza and ice cream!). Even your meat-loving friends will be impressed — and asking for seconds.
