We’ve already shared our favourite UK Vegan blogs, and there’s already plenty to offer from these plant-based foodies. But we thought we’d also share our favourite vegan blogs from around the world.
Whether they’re inspiring us to eat more vegetables, try some food substitutes, or completely indulge our sweet tooth, these blogs are amongst our first port of call. Plus, their images are all Pinterest-perfect as well.
Get ready for some total food porn with our favourite vegan blogs from around the world.
The First Mess
Canadian Laura Wright has a heartfelt passion for produce which is echoed through her blog, The First Mess. Brought up on a farm, educated at a cookery school and now working in restaurants, Laura’s enthusiasm for cooking is shown beautifully through her cooking. You must try the mushroom vegan stout pies with sweet potato crust, the ultimate in a healthier stodgy meal.
Filled to the brim with Indian-inspired food, as well as vegan versions of other cuisines, Richa Hingle’s blog Vegan Richa is a must read, especially if you’re looking to impress at a dinner party. We love how she lives her vegan lifestyle: “We choose less cruelty and we do it all without sacrificing taste, habits and pleasure.” This broccoli chickpea stuffed flatbread would be the perfect side to any curry.
Post Punk Kitchen
Post Punk Kitchen is a fun and vibrant blog from Brooklyn-based Isa, find what you’re looking for by searching for particular recipe types or a certain ingredient. There’s a huge selection of dessert recipes for you to work your way through as well, you’ll keep heading back to the Grilled Peaches with Ginger Coconut Caramel during summer though.
Oh She Glows
We’d be quite surprised if you hadn’t heard of Angela Liddon of Oh She Glows already, the Canadian started her blog to help her recover from an eating disorder in 2008. Since then she’s had a bestselling cookbook (Oh She Glows the Cookbook) and bring a whole tonne of recipes that delicious and Instagram-worthy.
The Minimalist Baker
The name says it all on this blog, Dana Shultz is The Minimalist Baker and she creates vegan recipes that use one bowl, contain 10 ingredients or less, and can be prepared within 30 minutes. This is fuss free eating, and it’s exactly what we love. Her Thai Noodle Bowls with almond butter tofu will soon be a go-to recipe.
Mary Mattern became a vegan in her early twenties, and was immediately astonished by how great she felt and how rewarding she found her new vegan lifestyle to be. She soon became a vegan personal chef to the stars, working with people such as Entourage actor Jeremy Piven and touring with pop singer Ellie Goulding. Not only does she have a beautiful site, and drool-worthy Instagram, she now has a cookbook, with familiar recipes such as Beer-Battered Buffalo Cauliflower Wings, American Apple Pie, and Creamy Cashew Alfredo.
Vegan in the Freezer
If meal prep is your thing, Ginny McMeans’ blog Vegan in the Freezer is one you definitely need to know about. The recipes feature healthy and delicious food that you can enjoy now or freeze for future meals. There are a variety of meals and snacks from down home cooking to gourmet fare, we particularly love the spicy lentil tacos.
Plant Powered Kitchen
Dreena Burton has been a vegan for almost 20 years now, and it shows through her extensive knowledge, wide variety of meals and her five cookbooks. Dreena’s recipes are perfect to feed the family, and her latest book, Plant Powered Families, is filled with recipes that are all whole foods (oil-free), and most are gluten-free. As well as the recipes there are tips for picky eaters, school lunches and nutritional FAQs.
Fork and Beans
Cara Reed began her blog Fork and Beans when she was told to cut out certain food groups as they were making her sick, and she was disappointed with the gluten, egg and dairy-free blogs out there. So made her own, and we’re so glad she did. Her belief that allergy-free doesn’t have to be boring, taste bland, or leave you feeling left out, and her smores ice cream sandwiches are just one of the reasons we love her.
The Vegan Chickpea
Not only will you get delicious, gluten-free vegan recipes from Caitlin’s blog The Vegan Chickpea, but she also promotes healthy, vegan living, with her posts concentrating on cruelty free and vegan beauty and fashion. Her tomato galette is definitely worth the effort in making too.
The Simple Veganista
Julie West specialises in clean, nutrient dense recipes on The Simple Veganista, to prove that ‘vegan food is not boring, complicated or expensive’. The vegan lasagne asparagus is the perfect meal to share to impress family and friends, if you can manage to watch it disappear in the blink of an eye anyway.
