These are the top 10 reader-tested vegan recipes of 2019 from plantpowercouple.com!
As a major fan of food blogs in general, I always loved when a blog would do a year-end review of the top reader-favorite recipes.
So, yesterday, as I excitedly read these posts from some of my favorite bloggers (like this one from It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken), I realized it would be so fun to do this with our own blog.
Hence, T and I dug into the data and put together this list of our top vegan recipes from 2019. They earned their spot based on the number of visits + social shares each post received, highest star ratings, and (the most important of all) heartfelt comments from our kickass readers!
I hope you have as much fun reading this post as we did researching it!
1. Easy Roasted Potatoes
“Delicious!! Will definitely make again!! Thank you for the recipe!!” – Christina
“Turned out delicious! Such an amazing recipe!” – Jessica
2019 taught us many things, but perhaps most importantly, simple recipes are QUEEN. This recipe for easy roasted potatoes exploded on Pinterest this year, which proved I’m not the only one who had a hard time getting my roasted potato game together. We can all thank T for this one!
2. Slow-Cooker Vegan Corned Beef
Perhaps one of my favorite ever reviews from 2019 came from a reader who made our slow-cooker vegan corned beef:
“Okay, so I have made a lot of wheat gluten recipes over the past 14 years and they’ve always been really good but never quite tasted like the dish they were emulating. I think the addition of the regular flour and 1 hour resting time make a big difference. This was incredible!!! It was so delicious, and the non-vegetarians at the table said that they would never be able to tell the difference between this and a traditional Ruben. This recipe is a work of art and definitely being added to my favourites!! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!” – Rosalie
3. Beef-Style Walnut Meat
“GUYS. Three words–walnut taco meat. My life just changed.” – @planet.based on IG
This comment pretty much sums it up: Another thing 2019 taught us is that walnut meat isn’t going out of style anytime soon.
4. T’s Vegan Pot Pie Casserole
It’s really awesome to know I’m not the only one who gets emotional or does a happy little dance when I veganize an old favorite. Comments like these are the best damn part of this job:
“You guys. Dinner tonight actually made me a little emotional. In my pre-vegan days I LOVED Marie Calendar pot pies, like addicted and I’ve not had anything that came close in so many years. Enter @theplantpowercouple this recipe was so easy, and super healthy! The cream soup base is made with lentils! Genius! Teenage Britt is jumping up and down for pot pie and I’m excited to see once again that most everything can be made vegan if you try try try everything on Pinterest.” – @atypical.family on IG
5. Sausage-Style Walnut Meat
“This stuff is mind-blowing. So easy, versatile and delicious. I’ve made it a few times now, and even modified the spice blend once to make it chorizo-style — it turned out great! Walnut meat FTW!” – Jenny
That’s right; another walnut meat recipe. Told you this stuff was here to stay! And thanks to all of your comments, we have about 589 more ideas for variations and ways to use it in 2020. So, get ready world!
6. Life-Changing Chicken(less) Bouillon Powder
There’s a reason this vegan bouillon powder recipe includes the word “life-changing” in the title:
“This stuff is AMAZING! We use it exclusively as our bouillon/broth now. It just seems to up the game in every recipe. I just used it in a cheesy enchilada soup recipe I make (which was already good), but this knocked it out of park! I’m so happy you shared this one and I’m so glad I found it!” – Kelly
7. Seitan Ham with Pineapple Mustard Glaze
Our vegan ham roast is a long-time reader favorite, and we experienced a total fan-girl moment when the awesome food blogger Liv B. shared she was making this ham for Thanksgiving, calling it her “favourite seitan recipe ever”. WHAT?! How cool is that?! 🙂
8. Creamy Vegan Chicken(less) Stew
“Made this tonight for dinner and it was SO freaking good!! My boyfriend was thrilled, it reminded him of the stew his mom made growing up. We were blown away, definitely making it again!!” – Lauren
So many of the comments about this recipe talk about how it reminded them of a stew they loved when they were kids — the ultimate (and my personal favorite) compliment!
9. Vegan Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
“This recipe has become a staple in our newly vegan kitchen. Thank you!” – Ann
I’m obsessed with this recipe and SO excited to hear it’s been helpful to so many of you this year…especially you new vegans. What an honor!
10. Homemade Vegan Burgers
2019 was basically the year plant-based burgers evolved and took over the freakin’ world, and this burger recipe was our homemade take on this meaty burger trend!
“My cooking goal this week was to finally make this burger that @theplantpowercouple created! I once told you your feta was the best invention ever…this burger just might be your best invention ever! So good!! Knocks all other burgers out of the park…even that one which I won’t mention but it’s two words and both start with a “B”. Now I’m thinking about your feta.” – @uprooted_vegan on IG
After reading this comment, are we the only ones who want to put the FETA on the BURGER?
We want to send a GIANT thank you to every single one of you who, over the past year, have read, shared, made, rated, and commented on our recipes. Thank you for trusting us with your precious time in the kitchen and around the table.
You f’ing rock, and we can never thank you enough…but we can start by continuing to provide you with kickass vegan recipes.
