Since going vegan over a year ago there have been tons of foods I missed (cheese and chocolate being biggies!). Fortunately, we have this thing called the Internet to help us out! Over the past year I have stumbled onto TONS of vegan recipes, but I have to say, the following five are definitely my all time favorites for comfort food!
Vegan Mac 'n Cheese - The Minimalist Baker really hits the nail on the head with this one. The sauce is even a tiny bit stringy, just like real cheese. When I first stumbled on this recipe I was amazed!
Recommendation: I always add a touch of Onion Powder to mine - it really takes it over the edge. Plus broccoli. YUM!
Vegan Buffalo Wings - For the longest time, every year for my birthday I would request Chicken Wings as my birthday dinner. When I made the decision to go vegetarian 5 years ago (later vegan, a year ago) the one thing I found myself missing the most was chicken wings. Until I found these!
Recommendation: I like to mix BBQ sauce in with the buffalo sauce for a sweet and spicy vegan wing!
Vegan Chik'n Dumplings - A southern staple, chicken and dumplings is one of the ULTIMATE comfort foods. Chicken and Dumplings was always my go-to whenever feeling crummy (even over Chicken Noodle Soup!). I now have a new go-to with this recipe!
Recommendation: Soy Curls make an AWESOME chicken substitute.
Vegan Twix - Chocolate is one of the best pick-me-ups out there, but so many are made with milk or animal by-products. Sure, there's vegan convenience candy bars out there, but nothing tastes better than homemade!
Recommendation: This recipe takes a long time to get the caramel to just the right consistency. Good music on in the background is a must.
Vegan Vanilla Cashew Shake - Last, but certainly not least, on our recipe roundup: Ice cream! Grab some vegan twix (or sweet potato fries) for dipping - this shake is worth it!
Recommendation: Peanut butter, chocolate chips, fresh fruit are all fantastic addons for this shake.
