Vegan Main Courses
Double Vegan Bacon Cheeseburger by the Sweetest Vegan
The Sweetest Vegan is true to her name, offering irresistible vegan desserts and what we call “fast-food redemption” recipes. For those foodies who are on the fence about going vegan and don’t think they can give up their Big Macs and McDonald’s apple pies, think again! The Sweetest Vegan may very well be the chef who brings you over to the plant-based side!
Vegan Pizza by the Avant-Garde Vegan
Oh pizza! It’s one of those foods that stands between ‘I think I should go vegan, but I can’t live without…’ and ‘I have seen the light! I am now 100% vegan!!’ Never fear, Gaz is here. Gaz Oakley, aka the Avant-Garde Vegan, is truly a food artist – almost to the point of total intimidation. His cooking style and vegan creations look so amazing that you sit back in awe as you watch his videos. Then you realize – ‘I gotta have that!’ And you make your shopping list and run to the store.
Vegan Nachos by Hot for Food
How do these two make vegan cooking with your main squeeze look so fun and so easy? Maybe it’s because they’re constantly getting to each other’s hearts through their stomachs… However they do it, these nachos are the real deal!
Vegan Fried Chicken by Preacher Lawson
All we can say about this one is – we want mo’ Preacher Lawson vegan recipe videos! People used to think being vegan meant being deprived. Those of us on the inside (the vegans and the people who eat vegan food :o) know that eating plant-based can be – not only decadent, but hilarious!
Vegan Chocolate Cake by Adilicious
Some people go vegan because they want to lose weight. For those of us who can’t be bothered, there is Adilicous… What happens when you cross a trained pastry chef with some vegan ingredients? You get a very dangerous and delicious cocktail of some uber decadent treats. (Adilicous does provide non-vegan recipes, but we’re sure they’ll be even better when you make them with your vegan substitutes!)
