Comfort food doesn’t have to be synonymous with unhealthy food or fast food. Best of all, it can be completely vegan and satisfying. Try these vegan comfort food recipes to make you feel good when you’re craving something tasty. (Warning: non-vegans are sure to devour these treats too, so you might want to make more of them!)
- Vegan French Toast
You don’t need eggs to make this one a delicious breakfast option. Use chia seeds instead to create fluffy, protein-packed slices of bread. And, instead of honey and cream as a topping, try almond butter for something sweet and filling. This recipe is so satisfying, you won’t crave anything sweet for the rest of the day. Promise.
- Apple Pie
Crumbly and satisfying, apple pie is right up there on the comfort food list. Get your hands on a vegan pie crust and try this delicious recipe from Martha Stewart. It makes use of a delicious and natural filling, with ingredients such as lemon juice, apples, flour, sugar and cinnamon, so it doesn't have to notch up the calories.
- Baked Avo Fries
Instead of potato fries which can be healthy, you could opt for baking sweet potato wedges at home. But what if you want something a little different for a change? Bring on the avos! Other ingredients you'll need in this recipe include coconut oil, pepper, almond milk and flour. Then, you'll simply slice the avos, dip them in the ingredients and some breadcrumbs to give them a crispy coating, before popping them into the oven.
- Choc Pudding
Sometimes you need to nurture your sweet tooth so this vegan chocolate pudding will hit the spot. Instead of dairy, silken tofu, and coconut milk make this a sinfully good treat. If you want something even creamier, throw in peanut butter and bananas.
