Recipes


VegInspired was developed to share our plant-based, vegan recipes to help and inspire others to adopt a lifestyle where they would “eat more plants.”  We try to appeal to both the quick, weeknight cook, and the creative chefs out there.  We are not just a place for vegans.  We want to inspire all visitors to our site to “eat more plants.”  We take the time to create recipes that take omnivore’s taste buds into consideration.

All of our recipes are our own versions of tried and true VegInspired recipes created in the VegInspired Kitchen.  Please tag us or link back to this page if you choose to share our recipes! Thanks and Stay VegInspired!
