I’ve been on a strict plant based diet for nearly a year now, and though I had an easier time after being a lifelong vegetarian, I’ve still come to rely on a couple of talented bloggers to stock my Evernote account Evernote Food: A Beautiful Way to Keep Track Of Your Favorite Meals, Recipes, and Restaurants [Android] Evernote Food: A Beautiful Way to Keep Track Of Your Favorite Meals, Recipes, and Restaurants [Android] What'd you have for breakfast this morning?

Vegangela

Quick food isn’t complicated, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring either. Angela Thompson has been publishing her healthy creations on Vegangela since 2010, with a view to making healthy meals quick or simple – and often both.

Personal highlights include the lazy Mexican quinoa casserole (stick it in the oven, job done), the sriracha-laced spicy Asian cashew salad and delicious, raw pad Thai none of which are particularly demanding to make. If you’re a fan of Indian food (and how could you not be) then the lentil dal and super-quick take on chana masala never fail to impress.

Oh She Glows

From one Angela to the next, OhSheGlows is the blog of published self-trained chef and food photographer Angela Liddon. She is the author of The Oh She Glows Cookbook. The particularly pleasant knock-on effect of her food photography expertise are the many beautiful images that accompany the recipes, though it also means mine never look quite so good.

This raw chocolate walnut fudge is every bit as good as it sounds and exemplifies the quality of recipes on offer. Angela’s savoury chickpea pancake has become a lunchtime staple in our house while the sun-dried tomato basil pesto used here keeps finding its way into more and more of my cooking.

Post Punk Kitchen

One of the most famous vegan food blogs, Post Punk Kitchen launched straight off the back of what has become one of the most famous vegan cookbooks, The Veganomicon. PPK started as a cooking show, evolved into a blog and picked up quite a community along the way – with food author Isa Chandra Moskowitz at the helm.

Many PPK recipes have become go-to resources for myself, like Isa’s guide to awesome homemade seitan. A delicious vegan take on challah (delicious Jewish bread) and the simplicity of dishes like the scrambled tofu breakfast bahn mi highlight the quality on offer here.

Veggieful

Madison Partland is a young vegan blogger who is taking the affordable eBook approach to food writing, having published three ebooks so far at just under $3 each. She’s also not afraid of putting hundreds of recipes online for all to enjoy, which also involves getting stuck into tough cookies like vegan pizza and eggless baking.

Madison’s vegan brownies could probably end wars (and never seem to last very long) and her vegan cooked breakfast isn’t so much a recipe but a collection of ideas on a plate that leaves you thinking “why didn’t I think of this?” as you finish the last bite.

Vegan Miam

Vegan Miam is a blog that combines delicious vegan food and travel, brought to you by two globetrotters Rika and Doni. Their blog presents a mixture of recipes, restaurant and product reviews. You can even preview their travel schedule to find out where they’ll be traveling to next.

Their delicious Japanese curry can frequently be found bubbling away on my stove — this Tandoori tofu scramble will warm any winter’s morning and the Lap Tao Hoo salad is worth all the effort involved.

    there are many great facebook pages that encourage a vegan lifestyle too, like https://www.facebook.com/antispecs .. probably a whole heap doing recipes too, but I think there is a lot more to veganism than recipes.

    I don't know how I would have made the transition a few years ago if it hadn't been for the PPK, that website is an absolute lifesaver. By lifesaver, I mean vegan-cupcake-craving-enabler.
    And Oh She Glows has been one of my favourite blogs for the past couple of months!

      They're two of the best, though I think I relied on Vegangela a little more for the first few months. I recently missed a chance to see Isa from PPK who was touring these parts (Melbourne, Australia), which was pretty gutting.

      Love the blog URL ;)

    Oh Tim, awesome article. I've often thought about trying veganism from time to time, as an experiment. Out of curiosity, what do you find most challenging about vegan cooking?

    As an aside, there's an awesome vegan restaurant in Liverpool called The Egg which I highly recommend if you end up in these parts. :)

      Hmm... I don't think the challenge is in the cooking, it's actually everything else you eat – snacks, lunch while out and about, quick bites etc. You have to query everything, because a surprising number of foodstuffs contain dairy or egg that you really don't realise till you go looking for it.

      Cooking is easy by comparison – I've got total control over everything, it's all from scratch, and there's nothing in my kitchen I can't eat. I love cooking, but by comparison finding somewhere to eat can tough. Luckily Melbourne is packed with awesome little eateries that cater for every type of diet, mine included :)
