Pause me if you’ve heard this one before. “Oh, you’re vegan? So you like, you love salads, right?" While salads can be delicious, there are also a lot more things to vegan cuisine than salads. After reading these delicious recipes, you may consider why you’re not already eating vegan. Here are the top ten most mouthwatering, gotta-have-it vegan recipes on Pinterest.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Let’s start off on a sweet note. If you ever feel like your sweet tooth is aching for some chocolate, whip up a batch of these cookies. They only take a few minutes to mix and bake. Feel free to swap the coconut oil for dairy free butter, add nuts, or add some cinnamon for an extra kick!

Triple Pumpkin Chili

Fall may be over, but what do we all crave for on these cold, winter days? Warm yourself up with this savory pumpkin chili. It’s one of those recipes that, no matter what kind of a day you had, it makes you feel warm and at home. Triple the pumpkin, triple the servings. You won’t want to stop at one.

Rosemary Fries with Roasted Garlic Dip

Everyone loves fried, right? Do you ever wish you could have fries but really don’t want to go out? Or maybe you aren’t a homebody or introvert. Either way, here is a fry recipe for when that craving comes. These fries taste great ALL THE TIME. Allergic to nuts? Use chickpeas instead of the cashews for the dip. Or maybe you’re a traditionalist and prefer good ol’ ketchup. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s these fries you eat.

Asian Garlic Tofu with Rice

Asian food. One of the most beloved cuisines in the world. Do we know why? Not necessarily, but do we care? No, just pass the garlic tofu, please! This recipe is tasty, simple, fresh, and easy. What’s not to love? It takes seven ingredients and 35 minutes of your day to get this delicious entree on your dinner table.

Garlic and White Wine Pasta with Brussels Sprouts

This recipe is perfect to make for yourself or for a date night. The creamy, garlicky, cheesy flavors make you forget that this dish is vegan. Put a little wine in the sauce and a little more in your glass. You’ll be fine dining tonight.

Easy Homemade Ramen Noodle Soup

Hey college grads, remember making ramen at midnight on those late study nights? Well now you get to make a tasty bowl of one of your best food memories, but maybe at a more reasonable time. This recipe is so simple and quick, it’s almost like making that pack of instant ramen, but it tastes a whole lot better.

Cloud 9 Pancakes

Pancakes are practically a food group all on their own. They make a warming breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Maybe all three on some days. These are some of the fluffiest pancakes known to the vegan universe. If you don’t have vegan egg replacer, you can substitute that with a flax egg, aquafaba, or applesauce. You can also use 1 ⅓ cups of flour if you don’t want to use cornstarch.

Chickpea Vegetable Chowder

Chowder is a classic northeastern dish. It’s a wholesome bowl of simple soup that somehow seems really fancy. This chowder is full of bold, zesty flavors that will make this recipe a staple in your kitchen.

Moroccan Spiced Vegan Shepherd's Pie

We are faced with yet another classic. Shepherd's pie is one of those dishes that is so homey, no matter where you make it. In this recipe, the Irish classic turns Moroccan for a spicy, flavorful twist. This shepherd's pie uses lentils instead of beef but gives you the same amount of protein for a healthy, balanced dinner option.

These are only some of the great vegan recipes you can find on Pinterest. The only problem now is figuring out which one to cook first. Will it be a pillow-y, sweet pancake? A quick, warm bowl of ramen? Or will you make a sweet treat and fulfill that chocolate craving? Whichever you choose, you won’t be disappointed.
