HEALTHY VEGAN RECIPES THAT NON-VEGANS WILL LOVE
I originally wrote this post in 2017 and it has been updated with more current healthy vegan recipes that I feel belong on this list!
I receive a lot of messages by far, one of the most popular requests I receive is this, "Give me your best healthy vegan recipe to wow some non-vegan guests!" I hear it all the time. People have family members, friends or guests that they want to wow and prove how delicious vegan food truly is and that's it's not some weird alien food, haha! OR, they want something they can fix that nobody will KNOW it's vegan, hahaha. You guys are sneaky. Well, that inspired me to compile a list so that instead of answering that question with multiple links each time, this is a go-to list for healthy vegan recipes that will impress meat eaters!
Each of these recipes I share today are ones that have repeatedly gotten rave reviews from readers saying..."nobody could believe this was vegan!"
HOW TO GO VEGAN?
Easy, start with this list of healthy vegan recipes and see just how easy it really is and it is not in any way a diet of deprivation or loss of flavor! These recipes will prove that!
These healthy vegan dinners will impress the meat eaters in your life. They are comforting, filling, satisfying and full of flavor!
#1 No surprise. VEGAN GARLIC ALFREDO. Most people have tried this so far that have visited my blog, it's the most made recipe every single week and the highest rated recipe. It is one of my oldest recipes and sadly, one of the most copied. However, the original comes from my blog. I originally posted it in 2013. It was the one featured in the movie Eating You Alive that I cook and after seeing that movie, it got a high praise from actress Mayim Malik.
CHEESY MEXICAN TORTILLA BAKE....only posted 2 months ago and is already had an enormous amount of remakes and stellar reviews. It's sooo cheesy, hearty and comforting. Meat-eaters, hubbies, kids, teenagers are all loving it. Also, super fast to make.
This recipe is from Oh She Glows cookbook and I'm sharing it here in this roundup because it's so loved by you readers! It is the most pinned recipe on my entire blog, too, haha!
I have been told dozens of times by readers that these are the best meal you've had since going plant-based! It is one of the most loved recipes on my site. Check out the reviews for yourself!

I'm pretty darn good at creating soups, I love eating them, so I love creating amazing healthy vegan soup recipes! These are total comfort food and not bland whatsoever.
VEGAN LAZY DAY TOMATO BISQUE...when readers and dairy-eaters are all telling me it's the best tomato bisque they've ever had and way better than La Madeleine's signature soup, then I know that they feel the same way I did the day I created it. It seriously is the creamiest most delicious tomato soup. It feels guilty, yet it's so good for you.
HEARTY VEGGIE POTATO STEW....rated by many readers as the best stew they've ever had! Promise you won't miss the meat on this one.
This isn't as known as some of my other recipes, but it is one of MY favorite recipes. It is one of the most delicious recipes I've ever created and it is FULL of flavor. Many reviews from readers who have made it and say it is reminiscent of a bean & bacon type of soup.
"My parents who are meat eaters couldn't stop eating it."
"That was the best soup I have ever ever made. Ever. My husband just caught me licking the ladle while I was doing the dishes!"
I make this every single year for the holidays and it is a tradition in my family. None of my relatives are vegan and yet everybody absolutely loves it. It's super easy and fast to make and is full of flavor. All rave reviews from readers as well.
Many readers have told me this is their favorite soup and they love it more than the traditional chicken noodle soup. It has so much flavor and sure makes you feel good.
