Since transitioning to a mostly whole food, plant-based diet in 2016, Josh and I have been trying all kinds of new plant-based recipes. Some of them have been better than others, so today I want to share with you a list of our top favorites.
It took a while for me to find resources and websites that have the kind of recipes that fit our tastes, but I finally stumbled upon The Garden Grazer. You’ll see several of her recipes on this list! You’ll also find one of my own recipes, as well as others I’ve found searching through Pinterest.
15 Plant-based Recipes You Need to Try
Here are fifteen of our all-time favorite plant-based recipes. Enjoy!
One of my ultimate favorites! It was also a big hit with my family at Thanksgiving. You can find Arborio rice at just about any grocery store, including Walmart.
Josh likes a hearty breakfast every now and then, so this recipe is one of his favorites.
I loved these tacos!! I’ll take meatless tacos any day of the week.
This is a relatively new recipe for us. I wish I had found it sooner because it’s just that good!
I made my minestrone soup with asparagus instead of green beans (since that was what I had in the fridge at the time) and it was phenomenal! Definitely one of my favorites.
Josh and I were both hooked the first time I made this tangy salad! I actually ate about a fourth of it while I finished cooking the rest of our meal. Oops!
This is an excellent travel-friendly food. We pack it in a cooler with some chips and pickles and voila! Easy picnic food.
This is my own recipe. It’s a blend of two recipes I found from The Garden Grazer and Hallelujah Diet using our favorite spices.
We both enjoy this recipe, but Josh especially loves it! He loves just about any Asian food.
Josh LOVES that aioli!! And it’s so easy to make!
This is the first recipe I ever made from The Garden Grazer. I think Josh asked me to include it in our meal plan at least twice a week for a month or two after we discovered it!
This is a party favorite. The sauce is so tasty, but it does take a little bit of time to prepare. I only make half the recipe and freeze it in smaller quantities so I can thaw however much I need.
If you’re looking for a tasty combination of superfoods, this is it!
I actually made this soup with cooked brown rice instead of orzo (since I ran out of orzo), and it was perfect!
Scroll down the page since the Sweet Annie Kale Salad recipe is number 4 on the list.
This is one of the first plant-based recipes I ever tried. I learned it when I took Hallelujah Diet’s Free 60 Days to Reclaim Your Health video series. It’s a favorite around here!
