The Best Plant-Based Recipe Blogs

by | Apr 27, 2019

I love having physical cookbooks in my kitchen, but I’m also grateful to all of the awesome people creating and sharing recipes with us on the internet. Bless all of you, recipe bloggers, for doing something that isn’t my forte or passion – and doing it so much better! Here are some of my favorite primarily plant-based recipe blogs.

Oh She Glows

Angela Liddon has been running this vegan food blog since 2008 and, as you can imagine, she has shared more recipes than I can count. Angela is a mom of two little girls, and has been through eating disorder recovery, which I find very relatable for so many people. She has also authored several cookbooks, which you can find on my recommended cookbooks post here. Her recipes are fresh, nutritious, and flavorful. Most are also free of gluten, soy, and processed foods.

Minimalist Baker

10 ingredients or less, 1 bowl, or 30 minutes or less to prepare. These are all of the types of recipes you’ll find on Dana Shultz’s blog. And thank goodness for that because on many nights, one bowl and whatever ingredients I can scrounge up from the pantry are all I’m starting out with. Dana is the main photographer for her recipes- and if you’re into food photography, she even offers a course on it. She has also authored a great cookbook that I love, which you can check out in this post.

Namely Marly

Marly is all about easy vegan recipes that the whole family can enjoy. The first recipe I tried from her blog is the breakfast casserole, which is a delicious layering of homemade biscuits, tofu scramble, vegan sausages, and vegan cheeze. Um, yes please. Marly has several other resources on her site, like a guide to vegan baking, accidentally vegan ingredients, and a free e-cookbook you can subscribe for.

Dreena Burton

Dreena is a plant-based cook and mom of three, so she understands the need for doable recipes for families. Her blog is packed full of whole-food, minimally processed meals, sides, snacks, and desserts. Dreena is also the author of Plant-Powered Families, one of my favorite cookbooks.

Happy Herbivore

Lindsay created this blog to help people who want to lose weight on a vegan diet. As such, her recipes are plant-based and low fat. She also offers a meal plan service called Meal Mentor.

Plant Based on a Budget

“Healthy food for less” is the theme here, which is super helpful in smashing the myth that plant-based living has to be expensive! Toni Okamoto runs this blog, which also offers plant-based meal plans. You don’t have to shop at specialty stores or cook boring, bland things to live a plant-based lifestyle.

Cookie and Kate

This is a vegetarian recipe blog that uses fresh, healthy, whole foods. Kate shares some pretty amazing plant-based breakfast and dessert ideas that I’ve used numerous times. You can also find entrees, sides, snacks, and seasonal recipes here. She also recently created a guided cooking app which you can find on the Apple Store and Google Play.

Isa is the author of Isa Does It, Veganomicon, Vegan with a Vengeance. She also owns the restaurant Modern Love in NYC. I love this blog because – dang – she is so much more creative than I am! With recipes like glazed tofu “ham”, Brussels sprout fried rice, and latkes, I’m set for all holidays and evenings where I’m feeling lackluster.

Vegan Richa

Richa created this blog to share recipes inspired by her Indian upbringing. Many of them are not only vegan, but also gluten-free, soy-free, and oil-free if you desire. Richa also authored the cookbook Vegan Richa’s Everyday Kitchen.

Hell Yeah It’s Vegan

This one has been around since 2008 and is full of great homemade recipes. Her goal is to make vegan cooking less intimidating for people who want to make the transition. You’ll find a lot of easy, delicious things here like Chocolate Almond Butter, Oatmeal Raisin Balls, Vegan Corn Dogs, and Broccoli Slaw.

Hot For Food

Lauren Toyota runs this vegan food blog and the accompanying YouTube channel, and it’s awesome. I came across her recipes when I was looking for an entree to make for our first vegan Thanksgiving (which by the way, we still make every year and here’s the recipe). This blog is full of everyday recipes, like cream cheese spreads, danishes, crepes, thick and juicy burgers, and meatball subs.
