What better way to bring in the new year, than to have the Top 10 Vegan Recipes of 2014 from It Doesn't Taste Like Chicken, right at your finger tips! Ahh. Much Better.
You voted. By cooking, commenting, visiting, pinning, facebooking, twittering, instagraming, or however else you share, these recipes were chosen by you! We interrupt this broadcast for a moment of appreciation from me. THANK YOU!!!!! It's because of all of your support that I get to share my favourite recipes with you and help spread the yummy vegan word. Now on to the deliciousness!
In 10th place came these Salted Caramel Maple Nut Clusters. Requiring only 5 ingredients, and 10 minutes to make, it's one of my favourite quick treats.
Delicious as a spread on crackers, raw veggies, or can be baked into a Kale & Cashew Ricotta Pasta Bake. Hello yummy comfort food!
I love me some salad, but what do I love even more than salad? A Thai inspired salad with so many scrumptious layers of veggies, grilled tofu, and all topped off with a Thai peanut butter dressing
This is still my ultimate favourite guilt-free salad dressing. It's so creamy and caesar-y you would never know that it was vegan and healthy!
6. Carrot Fries
One of my favourite ways to take an otherwise kinda boring veggie (no offense carrot!) and turn in into a star of the dish. Some people didn't like how they are a little bit charred, so if that's you, just keep an eye on them when they are cooking. I, on the other hand, am that person who loves all the little burnt bits. It tastes like burning.... Omnomnom.
Not just one recipe but a collection of recipes. Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Quick Onion Gravy... drool. This is your cheat sheet of veganizing the classics!
Nope, you don't have to feature a dead bird on the table. This recipe works great for a formal event like Thanksgiving or Christmas. It's super pretty weaved with puff pastry, and inside is a hearty, flavourful lentil loaf. Pour on some Quick Onion Gravy, or your favourite BBQ sauce, and you are in delicious, hearty, heaven.
I guess these really are the best! Woot! I know they are my favourite basic cupcake. I have served these bad boys to vegans and omni alike, and I will tell you a secret: if you don't tell anyone they are vegan, no one will have any idea! Muhahaha. Classics are great, but if you are looking to kick it up a notch, try my Vegan Gingerbread Cupcakes.
Another collection of recipes. (I am seeing a trend here). A delicious sandwich recipe for every day of the week. My go to is the Chickpea Salad Sandwich recipe, but that T.L.T. is staring me in the face right now!
The most popular recipe of the year are my Cucumber Avocado Rolls! This recipe has been pinned over 103 THOUSAND times and counting! The funny thing is that this recipe was a result of a mistake. I made the avocado filling with other intentions, which I can't even remember now, but that recipe failed. I found a cucumber in my fridge and made these little dudes. The lesson learned? Mistakes are awesome! They turned out to be such a cute little unexpected app. that are little mouth explosions with every bite.
