About The Classics Veganized:

Incredible classic comfort food recipes for a vegan lifestyle.

Vegan cuisine is exploding in popularity around the world, and now more than ever, people are adopting a plant-based diet or vegan lifestyle. Not only can you thrive eating a healthy plant-based diet, but also you can now enjoy all those familiar comfort food dishes that you have been craving.

In The Classics Veganized, you will find over 120 drool-worthy dishes that reinvent classic comfort foods with a modern spin. Standout vegan dishes that no one would know are meatless!

Start with appetizers, like Crispy Mushroom Calamari, Cheesy Tex-Mex Quesadillas, and Boneless Wings, because really, is there any other way to kick-off a meal?

You will find lots of hearty mains like Hickory Smoked Ribs, Chickpea Pot Pie, Home-Style Meatloaf, White Widow Mac and Cheese, and Shepherd’s Pie.

Round out dishes with sides and salads like Buttermilk Onion Rings, Creamy Caesar Salad, and Twice Baked Vegan Taters.

Weekend brunch is a must with Buttermilk Blueberry Pancakes, Breakfast in Bed Scones, Quiche Lorraine, and Sunny Side Up Vegan Eggs with Yolks.

Easy-to-make vegan desserts put the finishing touch on any meal. Classic desserts like Chocolate Fudge Cake with Buttercream Frosting, Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Pineapple Upside Down Cake are a breeze to throw together with basic ingredients.

The Classics Veganized also includes recipes to make your own vegan pantry staples and condiments from cheeses and butters to dressings and sauces.
