05 Nov 5 Easy, Savory Vegan Comfort Food Recipes to Share
Fall is a season of togetherness. And nothing gathers people together quite like a hearty, piping-hot feast. So, we’ve scoured the web to bring you 5 of our favorite easy, savory vegan comfort food recipes to share with those you love:
This rich and hearty one-pot dish is a plant-based feast. The recipe features beefy Portobello Mushrooms, which are high in protein, mood-balancing Vitamin B6, and immune-boosting Zinc. It’s an ideal wintertime meal you can make in a slow-cooker or on the stove. Also great as a pot pie filling – yum!
No winter recipe list is complete without everyone’s favorite comfort food: mac and cheese. Make this naturally dairy-free, nut-free vegan dish gluten-free by substituting rice or chickpea noodles. Onion and garlic powders are the secrets behind the silky smooth cashew or soy milk “cheese” topped with crunchy golden crumbs. A cold-weather delight!
This flavor-packed dish keeps them coming back for more! You can’t go wrong when hearty black beans meet a colorful cornucopia of sweet corn, bright bell pepper, and succulent green onion. The crunchy cornbread crust is just the “icing on the cake” of this protein and iron-rich meal. Top with shredded vegan cheddar or a drizzle of vegan sour cream for extra “oomph.”
You can’t make a wintertime vegan comfort food recipe list without pumpkin. It wouldn’t be right. And this recipe is filled to the brim with autumn’s beloved orange fruit. Add fire-roasted tomatoes and bell peppers, hearty black beans, and a side of crisp tortilla chips for an instant cold-weather favorite.
Kick your winter mac and cheese game up a notch. Black pepper adds heat to this dairy-free dish. Substitute pumpkin seeds for cashews to make this recipe nut-free. Crisped chickpeas, flavorful bell pepper, and plenty of savory herbs tempt even the pickiest of palates. Rich in fiber, protein, and Vitamin C, it’s a surprisingly healthy option built to satisfy!
We can’t finish our list without a nod to international yogi Cara Provenzano’s homemade vegan lasagna. Bring the full flavor of a fan-favorite New York bistro to your wintertime table.
