The Best Vegan Recipe Blogs Worth Following in 2020

Last updated: February 26, 2021

The vegan diet and vegan lifestyle is a big decision to make, and anyone who has even contemplated the switch will tell you that it's not easy coming across healthy and delicious vegan recipes.

Luckily, there are a few vegan bloggers and food blogs that focus on the vegan diet. Here are our pick of the best vegan recipe blogs we can't get enough of in 2020.

Read on to find some of your new vegan eating and food blogs.

1. Deliciously Ella

Deliciously Ella

Deliciously Ella is a vegan diary of whole food and plant-based recipes. Its original intention was experimentation, trying out new dishes and recipes, and eating a healthy vegan diet to combat a slew of ongoing health complaints.

Not wanting to forgo flavor and only being an amateur cook, it features heavily in simple but popular recipes that anyone can try at home. It has since grown into so much more with cookbooks and even an app.

A recipe that we love is the baked banana and blueberry oatmeal, which is a hearty and warm start to any day.

Deliciously Ella was originally intended to be a personal project, a way to encourage myself to fall in love with plant-based eating and make healthy eating delicious.

A personal favorite recipe is the beans and walnut meatloaf, which is a perfect comfort food and an ideal main course served up with any other veggie that you love.

4. Vegan Richa

I cannot imagine living without the mac and cheese mix recipe, which helps you to create your vegan cheese sauce to sling over pasta for another taste of ideal comfort food.

5. Choose Veg

Choose Veg

Choose Veg is the kind of vegan food blog that you keep coming back to for new ideas. It's less about cooking from scratch and more a pinboard of some of the fantastic things you can create using only plant-based ingredients.

A lot of the recipes feature quick fixes using store-bought ingredients rather than making them for yourself, and it's perfect for the vegan on the go.

Quite honestly, I thought pizza was a right off when going vegan, but the quick veggie pizza recipe on Choose Veg changed my mind. I've served it to family and friends ever since.

6. The Vegan 8

The Vegan 8 is another fantastic vegan food blog specializing in simple recipes using eight ingredients or less.

This blogger likes to focus on recipes that can be effortlessly converted to plant-based without having to miss out on the taste and texture.

It's easy to navigate, and the recipes are delightfully easy to follow. This is the kind of food blog your Nan might have made if your Nan was a passionate vegetarian or vegan.

The recipes primarily comfort food and easy to create alternatives to your old favorites.

The vegan bechamel sauce  has brought so many delicious meals back into my repertoire. It's got a taste and texture that will have even your non-vegan friends asking for the recipe.

She tests her food out on her carnivorous family, so every single meal idea has that particular stamp of approval.

  1. Amazing post as always!! Was looking for some new blogs to follow and I just found your website and I’m hooked, been reading it all day. Didn’t know there’s a lot of blogs like this out there, definitely worth checking out. Love this list a lot. I’m always looking for fellow bloggers that promote the same thing, and I love to cook so these sites are all going to my bookmarks. Keep it up, thanks for sharing this list. Totally love it

  2. Not sure if it’s a coincidence or the universe doing its magic but I’m so glad I found this list! My friend and I had dinner a few weeks ago in this restaurant downtown that served all plant foods. I was hesitant at first but went it anyway and I was pleasantly surprised. The food all looked good (plating was topnotch) and the taste was bomb! The desserts were mouthwatering with the right sweetness that’s not overpowering. That same weekend I went to cook some plant dishes at home and right now I’m on a mission to perfect this!!! Thanks for sharing this list, I already went ahead and looked at some of them and listed down some interesting ones I want to try 🙂 Love love love it

  3. It’s difficult to be a v-e-g-a-n when you don’t know how to cook, or worse, you don’t even know what to cook! Heck, I don’t even know the names of the veggies I’m supposed to eat. I eat them but I don’t know them, lol, mom’s fault I guess! Lol but thanks for this, now I’m inspired to make my own food especially everyone’s on home quarantine. I’ll see what I have in the pantry (my mom’s pantry to be exact) and start playing in the kitchen. Wish me luck!! and thank you for this list, really, it’s extremely helpful

  4. Hey you, thank you for sharing all good things! I’ve been a follower for a while now and your blog is on my calendar, have to be on here at least 3 times a week 🙂 I like your vibe and style, makes me feel good about my lifestyle choices. And thanks for sharing helpful information to the community, you’re definitely one of my go tos when it comes to my fitness and diet. This isn’t really about the post but I guess I’ll just leave it here! Thanks and more power to you and your team!!! Stay awesome always

  5. from where i’m from, there’s not a lot of plant food variety in the groceries so I have to improvise and make use of what we have available, or sometimes I’d order some fresh produce online and have it delivered to my home.

    I’m not at all fond of cooking but when I realized all the health benefits of meal prepping at home, I started trying. So far, so good! I’ve made dishes for me and my family and they love it, they didn’t even know they’re meat-free. I’m now enjoying my time in the kitchen, and would definitely visit these pages you suggested for more ideas.

    Thanks and all the best,

  6. Hi Veganliftz team! I’m a long time follower but this is the first time I’m commenting! I just want to let you know that I love your page, my fiance and I have been following your recommendations and all the information you share are very encouraging to people like us who are just starting with the diet.

    I tried the dish from rainbow nourishments and fiance and I love it! So amazing how creative these things can be! We still have a long way to go but in less than a year of eating pure plants, we already feel a significant difference. Fiance has lost over 30 pounds and is continuously building muscles! So amazing what this diet can do, so thanks being one of our support sites

  7. I’m new to the diet and have been looking for foods that I can prep at home quickly especially for breakfast. My day typically starts at 5am (I travel an hour to work which starts at 7am) so I don’t have much time to prepare my morning meal unless I wake up way way early. I’m looking at some of these things and find that most of them are quite easy and quick to do! I will start making them next week and will let you know how it goes! Surely excited to eat some gourmet level breakfast despite my busy morning sched!

  8. Hello, I’m Thiago and I’m new to this diet. My dietitian advised me to try it because I’ve been suffering from some medical issues in the past 6 months. She mentioned that it may help my digestion and improve my condition. So far, I’ve been meat-free for 2 weeks and though I haven’t noticed any difference yet, I’m decided to give this a try for at least 3 months and see what it does to my body. I have friends who are living their lifestyle and they’re on tip top shape, which is very encouraging. I’ll have another consultation with my doctor by the end of this month and I’m looking forward to seeing my results get better.

  9. Loving this list — i’m always on the search for new recipes to cook at home and this is a great help. I love Healthy Happy Life and my kids love the dishes I cook from there. Very easy, healthy, and oh so delicious. My eldest love bringing it to work and sharing with her colleagues, it was her bday 2 months ago and I cooked some risotto at home and they all love it. And tofu is a household favorite too!

    I’ll definitely look into the other sites and see what they have that I can copy 🙂 Thanks for sharing this list, looks like it’s going to be a busy weekend in the Shannon household

  10. Hi Heather I have a quick question regarding the recipes. I live far from the farmer’s market and getting fresh produce has always been a hassle since I work 12 hours a day. Do you recommend getting them frozen instead? Will they have the same nutritional value, or even taste? I’m new to this and back when I was still eating meat, I would always have them frozen in the fridge and thaw them when it’s cook time. Not sure if the same can be done with veggies? Farmer’s market is several miles away and I only have Sundays off, so it’s a big struggle for me.
