Vegan Firehouse Chili

I love this recipe because it’s easy, healthy and completely meatless. It's perfect for a winter weeknight meal when you’re craving something nourishing and high in protein.

These vegan cornbread muffins are great alongside chili or soup or for breakfast, brunch or a snack.

Vegan Taco Mac and Cheese

This recipe is hearty with a capital H! It’s kind of like a cross between tacos and mac and cheese — make it for your hungriest friends and family members and dare them to say vegan food isn’t filling! The first time my roommate and I made this, afterward, we were so full that we said we would never eat again. Obviously, the next night, we craved it and made it again!

Vegan Ramen Bowl

Who doesn’t love slurping up a big bowl of ramen noodle soup that warms your body and soul? Many ramen recipes contain pork or eggs, but this recipe is completely vegan so you can go for seconds and thirds and feel light and energized after eating!
