Gahh can you believe it’s here?! The end of 2018! Looming at our doorsteps!
How was your holiday time with friends / family / etc.? Mine was quick, filling, fun, and full of relaxation.
Pretty much all that you could possibly ask of a holiday break if you ask me.
2019 will be here before we know it (whatwhatwhat), so I figured it was time to feature your absolute fave vegan recipes from this year!
Something I relearned about you guys this year is that you’re all about the savory – two out of my top 20 recipes from the year were desserts. The rest were meals / snacks / apps.
I don’t know how that’s possible because I spend more time with a cookie in-hand than not, but I sorta get it. That means more easy vegan dinners are comin’ atcha in the new year!
So today we’re diving deep and checking out:

I love getting cooking inspo from these types of posts, so I hope these recipes will continue keeping you full and nourished in the new year!
So so so simple – it really is the ultimate weeknight dinner! Super gingery, garlicky, and full of tasty broccoli.
“I LOVE ginger garlic noodles… it’s a staple in my house. Such a delicious flavor combination!! :)”
STILL one of the recipes on the blog that I’m most proud of. Fried rice without the rice. And without cauliflower! Can you even take the intrigue?
“Genius recipe. We added a generous amount of shredded cabbage to the veggies, and a good tablespoon of chopped fresh ginger with the garlic. Also: less sweetening, and a bit of sesame oil and rice vinegar. Thank you so much.”
More plant-based protein ftw! This taco “meat” is perfectly spiced and made with tofu and quinoa for a fabulous taco experience. Try it in these tacos – gah so good.
“This was my first time cooking tofu and this is absolutely delicious! I was skeptical since my first experience with tofu was in a salad an I didn’t like it. But will definitely make this again….yummy!”
Dethroned as #1 this year, but it’s still #1 in my heart <3 You guys consistently go crazy over this recipe, and I’m right there beside you holding the foam finger that looks like a head of broccoli.
“Awesome recipe! I think it could be addictive! It can stand alone or add more whole veggies. I paired it with spicy roasted sweet potatoes. When I make it again, I’m going to use more broccoli. The honey mustard dressing is sooooooo good!
A SOUP. A soup is your number one dinner of 2018!!! Surprised?! Same. But also not at all. Because it’s just a delicious excuse to eat peanut butter for dinner.
“I pinned this soup because it seemed good for a night I didn’t want to do a bunch of cooking. I have to admit that since it’s pretty straightforward my expectations weren’t super high. But this has to be one of the best soups I’ve ever tasted!! Absolutely delicious. Everyone loved it and it will definitely become a weekly staple!”
OBV. Like, obv. It’s so stupidly good, you guys. If you’re a fan of spice, and you’re in the mood for a warm and cozy dip on some salty tortilla chips, you know what to do.
“I love this recipe and I think its a great alternative to Buff Chick dip, and is awesome for football Sundays.”
You guys sure are fans of green tea! This latte is foamy, slightly sweet, nice and vanilla-y, and perfectly cozy for even the coldest of winter days.
“I’ve had a Starbucks French Press in my cupboard for a long time. I was delighted to put it to good use making this delicious tea. I used only 1/2 T agave that seemed sweet enough to me. Thanks for the recipe!”
Do you hear that? Pretty sure it’s the “Hallelujah” Chorus. Because these cookies are heavenly.
“I’ve already made these twice in one week. I have tried at least a handful of gluten free vegan cookies and these are the best! Lives up to the title for sure! Thank you for sharing”
YEP. Another drink in the top 5. Can you believe it? It’s so simple and endlessly customizable. You’ll love these flavors!
“I tried this iced tea tonight but used my Instant Pot with 2 quarts water, 12 decaffeinated Lipton tea bags, 1/4 cup granulated Stevia plus 1 tablespoon cinnamon and 1/2 tablespoon turmeric in a twisty-tied coffee filter. Cooked for 4 minutes on high pressure then did a natural release. Filled a one gallon pitcher with 2 quarts ice then poured hot tea over ice. DELICIOUS!”
Ding-ding-ding! We have a winner, and so many of you guys think so too! These are so easy to make, naturally gluten free, and refined sugar-free! Three cheers for vegan cookie dough!
“I just made these, they are delish! Thanks for the recipe. I followed everything as written and i love the taste and texture so much! Definitely making these again and again.”
Tis the season for appetizers, dips, and spreads! Love football food so much.
An ooooold post (from 2015!), but it’s still a popular one! Believe it or not, I still buy all of this stuff from TJs, so you know it’s a solid list!
We all need those filling, healthy, veggie-filled eats during the summer, and this list has some great ideas for ya.
Watermelons are usually a PIA to cut…not anymore. I literally refuse to cut a watermelon (or any other round fruit for that matter!) any other way.
I’m always updating this post to add more and more lunch ideas for you! If you’re constantly on-the-go and searching for nourishing lunch options, bookmark this post pronto.
These are in no particular order, but they were all published on the blog this year!
My birthday cake, my friends’ birthday cakes, an “any day” cake…it’s the perfect cake. Guaranteed.
A quick, tasty, healthy lunch or dinner that’s perfect for packing in all the veggies.
Mama Mia do I love this pasta! It takes literally no time at all, and it is so fabulous and satisfying.
YESSS. The best homemade vegan cream cheese frosting made from whole foods like cashews, apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice.
…and to go along with the cream cheese frosting: Vegan Pumpkin Roll! The best pumpkin roll ever (and possibly the #1 tested recipe on the blog).
A staple in Pittsburgh…made vegan. So freaking thrilled with this recipe.
A vegan burger with chips, guac, and chipotle crema on top. Oh yeah.
SO creamy, topped with fried sage sprinkles, and literally ready in 15 minutes. My kind of meal.
And that, my friend, is that! Thank you for yet another wonderful year. Love love love you, and wishing you all the happiest of new years!
