A vegan is someone who does not eat or use animal products such as meat, dairy, eggs, honey, etc. Many vegan diets are rich in vegetables, grains, legumes, and nuts. But you definitely don't have to be vegan to appreciate these flavor-packed vegan recipes.

  1. Veggie Lasagna

    We used a quick and easy cashew butter to give this layered lasagna a creamy filling. To top with vegan cheese, look for the Daiya Dairy-Free Mozzarella Shreds in the HealthMarket department.

  2. Tropical Avocado Salad

    You know it's good when all it needs is a squeeze of fresh lime as dressing.

  5. Teriyaki Tofu

    Don't be afraid of tofu. Just think of it as a neutral-tasting protein that soaks up whatever flavor you put on it. So if you like teriyaki, you'll love this recipe.
