Vegan Makeovers of Your Favorite Comfort Foods
The terms "vegan" and "comfort food" aren't always thought of together, but this collection of vegan comfort food recipes is ready to change all of that. Creamy cashew Alfredo, fluffy biscuits, and hearty shepherd's pie are just a few of the satisfying recipes that are easily made vegan-friendly but still highly comforting.
Traditional Style Vegan Shepherd's Pie
Creamy, hearty, and a little bit cheesy, this shepherd's pie recipe will taste just like you remember.
Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili
All you have to do is dump and stir these ingredients and let the slow cooker do the rest of the work. Four types of beans along with veggies make this chili so flavorful you won't even miss the meat.
"This was excellent. It tastes just like ragù alla Bolognese is supposed to taste," says Buckwheat Queen. "I think the red wine and nutmeg are key."
Vegan Potato Soup
Almond milk and a quick purée with an immersion blender are the secrets to this ultra creamy soup. If you want more texture, scoop out a few pieces of potato and carrot before blending.
Vegan Mac and No Cheese
"The texture is perfect, the flavor is full, and I cannot believe it," says purple-girl. "I have made many faux cheeses, and they have all been palatable or even yummy, but none of them have actually replaced an old favorite like this mac and no cheese did!"
Mini Vegan Pizzas
If freezer pizzas used to be your go-to, these mini pies will satisfy that urge due to their quick preparation. Pile up your favorite toppings before smothering with vegan cheese.
Vegan Potatoes au Gratin
A classic side dish, this casserole is so creamy even non-vegans will be fooled. Layers of potato are mixed with cheesy sauce before being topped with breadcrumbs and baked.
Air Fryer Vegan Buffalo Tofu Bites
The secret to making chewy tofu is freezing and thawing it. This creates ice crystal pockets, making it perfectly spongey for soaking up marinades and sauces, like the buffalo sauce in this recipe.
Vegan Chickpea Noodle Soup
Whether you're under the weather or just wanting to warm up during the winter, this hearty soup will satisfy. Veggies, noodles, and chickpeas combine in a savory broth that can't be beat.
Vegan Black Bean Quesadillas
"This was an excellent vegan lasagna. I've made a couple of different ones and this one is better by far," says 5Tami2.
Vegan Cashew Alfredo Sauce
Cashews are the perfect plant-based ingredient for creamy sauces. When soaked in water, they become extremely soft and break down easily in a blender. Serve this vegan Alfredo sauce tossed with pasta, layered in lasagna, or poured over casseroles.
Vegan Whole Wheat Biscuits
"I made these yesterday without any high hopes but boy was I impressed," says cookinfool. "I even received high praise from my picky eaters."
