Vegan Recipes to Impress a Carnivore

A few months ago, I embarked on a reader’s challenge focusing on various dietary lifestyles

As a food/health/everything blogger, I love feedback and I love sharing recipes YOU would enjoy. As part of my challenge, I went vegan for a month (including an extra week after slipping up here). To be completely honest, I was not looking forward to going vegan purely because I felt like I couldn’t go a day without some form of animal protein. 

How was going vegan? Challenging

It wasn’t challenging in the sense that I found the recipes difficult to follow or the final products poor tasting- Far from it! I just didn’t realise how difficult it would be to navigate around a mainstream supermarket here in Australia. 

Prior to the challenge, I asked on Facebook for some delicious, vegan recipe recommendations and was inundated with some of the most delicious sounding (and looking!) recipes.

Coming from a pretty evident carnivore, I hope you’ll enjoy this three part series on Vegan recipes to impress a carnivore. 

Trust me. I had five of my mates over for dinner and they were more than impressed.

  1. I absolutely don’t doubt that vegan meals can taste awesome – I mean what’s wrong with veggies, legumes, creamy avocado dressings… but to be honest, I wouldn’t go vegan for more than a day because it just doesn’t provide enough protein for me! It’s a highly debated topic but in order to keep my muscle, I need the protein and lots of it. That’s my opinion and nobody is going to convert me 😉 I should incorporate more veggie/vegan days though at least for environmental reasons 😉

    1. Check out plant built, vegan gym girls and just google vegan bodybuilding. Ridiculous to use muscle and protein as an excuse.

  2. I see one of Mike’s beauties hiding in there…I’m pretty sure I could just live in the fridge at Mike’s place and eat all of his leftovers. Of course, he’d probably not leave me any leftovers…he’s rude like that. But seriously, these look delicious! I’m not opposed to eating a vegan diet, but it’s also not tops on my priority list. Kudos to you for taking on the challenge! Is Vegemite vegan? 😉

  3. I would only go vegan if my doctor made me. I love eggs and seafood too much! and Greek yogurt, too! I could give up cheese and meat, though. That curried eggplant looks mouthwatering.

  4. As you know, I am a massive meat lover and could never go full vegan – I do however eat and enjoy a lot of meals that end up being veggie or vegan without intention! There are a few here I will be checking out for sure!

  5. Wow, all of these look super delicious! 🙂 Must try soon! The Cinnamon sugar tots look yummy. I love Amanda’s recipes. Of course these all look super good.

  6. While my eating habits are definitely more T-Rex, it is nice to sometimes go without any animal products…certainly nicer on the ol’ grocery bill. Thanks for the links – there’s quite a few that I can’t wait to try out. Those sweet potato burgers?! Drool.

  7. YUM thank you for the recipes! Most people find it funny that the majority of the foods they enjoy are mostly vegan: pb&j, oatmeal, pasta, potatoes, fries etc. I hope you enjoyed the month!

  8. I absolutely LOVE the concept of this post!! There are so many delicious vegan recipes out there that people just have to give a try! Thanks for sharing this! 🙂

  9. I like your posts., and some of these recipes I have got to try.
    I can’t do soy, legumes, mushrooms, or cauliflower, but some of your recipes are keepers for sure..
