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

Every good cook needs a solid roasted potato recipe in their arsenal, and this is ours! It's made with only six simple ingredients and comes out perfectly crispy + flavorful every. single. time. #vegan #potatoes #veganrecipes #glutenfree #plantbased // plantpowercouple.com

“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

Vegan Corned Beef that is as meaty and flavorful as any non-vegan version we've ever had but made from seitan in the slow-cooker! The gorgeous color comes from beet puree, a much healthier alternative that still kicks ass. #vegan #seitan #plantbased #crockpot // plantpowercouple.com

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

This spicy beef-style walnut meat is our go-to recipe for Taco Tuesday and beyond! It's easy to make, with only 9 ingredients and 5 minutes of active time, and the flavor is totally addictive. #vegan #walnuts #vegetarian #veganrecipes // plantpowercouple.com

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

This vegan pot pie casserole is a quick, easy, and delicisously vegan version of the chicken pie I fell in love with in London back in the 90s. Made with tremendously simple and easily found ingredients, the hardest part of this dish is waiting for it to be done cooking! #vegan #vegetarian #vegandinner #potpie #soycurls #veganrecipes // plantpowercouple.com

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 vegan sausage-style walnut meat is a great option for topping pizzas, pasta, and even breakfast tacos! We love how easy it is to make. #vegan #walnuts #recipe #plantbased //plantpowercouple.com

“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

This easy, 7-ingredient homemade vegan bouillon powder will totally level-up your cooking game! It's gluten-free and can be used to make a chicken(less) broth that is just as flavorful as the one we all grew up loving! // plantpowercouple.com

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

Make this vegan seitan ham when you really want to impress! It's full of smoky-sweet flavor and glazed with a pineapple mustard sauce that blow your mind. Beet puree is added for extra color and WOW factor. #seitan #vegan #vegetarian // plantpowercouple.com

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

This vegan chicken(less) stew is the PERFECT winter comfort food! It's warm and soul-healing but also FULL of surprise veggies and flavor. It's also freezer-friendly and has a gluten-free option. #vegan #stew #veganrecipes #cauliflower #comfortfood // plantpowercouple.com

“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

Get ready to veganize alllll the cozy casseroles of your childhood with this remarkably simple recipe for vegan condensed cream of chicken soup! It's just 5 ingredients, takes 20 minutes, and the taste will blow your mind. #vegan #soup #veganrecipes #dairyfree #vegetarian #plantbased // plantpowercouple.com

“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

The BEST homemade vegan burgers! A perfect blend of TVP and seitan make an irresistibly meaty texture with beets for a nice but light pink color and seasoned to perfection. They're also freezer-friendly, easy to make, and so satisfying! #vegan #TVP #burger #plantbased #vegetarian // plantpowercouple.com

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?
