Top Vegan Recipes of 2019 from VeganRicha.com , Sticky sesame cauliflower, Tofu Amritsari Masala., chickpea brownies and more.
This year has been an year of ups and downs.
I made a ton of videos, learnt so much, hired people to help with the editing. wrote ea book proposal for an Instant Pot cookbook, Streamlined some of the blog process, but there’s still more there to be done.
This year is also appreciation year for having my sister ‘s family living close by. I dont know how many people would pick up my phone at 3 am in the night and wake up, pick up their sleeping kid and rush because our family member(chewie was at the ER and was most likely not going to make it)
I haven’t really worked on recipes since more than month, thankfully there are many in the backlog. This is another reason for me to delegate writing up posts as well. It’s hard to sound upbeat all the time.
Back to the good stuff. There were many new recipes that resonated a lot with you all, and many that I really loved. And amazingly, there were many recipes that I loved, that ended up in the top recipes! I usually like the more complex flavor or more creative recipes, which don’t always get the interest as much as the popular and easy recipes.
So here are top 19 posts from 2019!
This was a very popular post especially in January when people plan to try a vegan diet (veganuary) or add more plant based meals in the beginning of the year.
