The following article was written by Keegan Baur.

On National Culinary Day, we should all take a moment to think about delicious foods and how happy they make us. Today is not a day that’s exclusively celebrated by professional chefs and high-class foodies—it’s a day for average people like me and you to celebrate our personal successes in the kitchen. To get in the spirit, here are 10 dishes that I’ve made in my own (very tiny and well-loved) vegan kitchen, following recipes that I’ve found in books and online:

1. Blueberry Super Pancakes

2. Vegan Nuggets

3. Meatball Subs (using Italian “meatballs” from The Everything Vegan Cookbook)

4. Watermelon Mojito Frozen Daiquiris

5. Avocado Pesto Pasta

6. Dairy-Free Mini Quiches With Basic Pie Crust (adapted from The Chicago Diner Cookbook)

7. Eggplant-Potato Moussaka With Pine Nut Cream (from Veganomicon)

8. Tofu ‘Ricotta’ Manicotti (from The Everything Vegan Cookbook)

9. Rustic Potato Pizza With Vegan Pepper-Crusted Cashew Goat Cheese

10 Key Lime ‘Cheesecake’

Now, what’s your favorite dish to make, and where can we find the recipe?

    Thanks for the reply and I apologise for my comments – I did not go to the recipe when I read the word cheese. The next thing to do is to try them. :-))

    Lora Proctor: The internet is your best friend! You can easily find vegan recipes for all kinds of creamy salad dressings, dips, and sauces. Off the top off my head, here is a super easy (and delicious) recipe for vegan ranch dressing: You can find more recipes by searching PETA’s recipe database at this link:

    Paul Harding: I can guarantee you that every item showcased above is vegan. Please note the word “cashew” before “goat cheese” (meaning there is a goat-cheese like substance made with cashews) and the quotes around the word cheesecake. Simply click on these links and you will see that these recipes are completely vegan and contain absolutely no animal products.

  • Lora Proctor says:

    Please send me or email more recipes using “substitute-cream-sour-cream and milk” type of products-dairy free, of course. Iam a vegan who is not good at cooking and I love creamy salad dressings, dips, sauces and soups which are also low calorie. Thanks

    If you are going to head the piece “Home-Cooked Vegan Cuisine” what’s the goat cheese and cheesecake doing there?
