Here are some of our favorite plant-based meals. The basic ingredients are accessible,  quick to put together and very satisfying. Many recipes have the same ingredients that are just prepared and seasoned differently!


These are filling, flavorful, nutritious and easy to make plant-based meals that are examples for you to get started with building your favorite go-to plant recipes. Use these ideas and adjust the listed ingredients to your taste. For specific recipes with exact measurements use one of the links of our favorite professional chefs listed above, or google the recipe with ‘plant-based’  or  ‘vegan’ to find detailed instructions.

The secret to the deliciousness of plant-based cooking is in the prep and flavoring. Fresh ingredients are so clean and flavorful, but frozen and jarred with no extra preservatives also work well.  Explore the flavors you love the most, grab your spices and chef’s knife and get ready to inspire your taste buds!
