Top 5 Vegan Recipes of 2013




I took a look-see at my blog stats to determine what were the most visited vegan recipes in 2013. Some of the top 5 recipes were posted before 2013, but they continued to remain popular over the past year. All of them are simple, healthy and delicious. Okay, chocolate dipped peanut butter balls aren't that healthy, but they beat store-bought treats!

Here, starting with the most popular recipe, are my Top 5 Vegan Recipes of 2013:






This is one of the first recipes I ever posted on Woman in Real Life and it continues to be the most popular. And for good reason! It is an incredible recipe - it requires very few ingredients, it is suitable for most diets and it feeds a crowd. It earns compliments every time I bring it to a party - even from kids and skeptics! This is a can't miss recipe.




2. Strawberry Muffins

I adore muffins. They are probably my favourite baked good. And I adore strawberries. They are probably my favourite fruit. So why not combine the two favourites in one tasty little package?




3. Chickpea Quinoa Soup

I also call this recipe "Spring Fever Soup" because my husband made it for me in springtime when I was sick. This is a whole, healthy meal in one dish - with quinoa and chickpeas for fibre and protein and veggies for vitamins. Forget the chicken soup - this is the soup to cure what ails you!




4. No Bake Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Balls

I made these tasty treats prior to Christmas this year. I put them in the freezer for safe-keeping...and then promptly ate them straight from the freezer. I made them again to have for dessert on Christmas Day. I would eat them all year round as a protein-packed (and extremely delicious) treat!




5. Vegetable Soup With Lentils

This soup is another meal in a bowl. Add some crusty bread on the side and dinner is served! It's packed with healthy vegetables and lentils. It's easy to make. And it's delicious to boot!


What was your favourite vegetarian meal to prepare in 2013?

    1. I guess that depends on your dietary requirements. I like a balance for myself and my family when it comes to food. We get lots of dietary fibre from other sources, so I don't think white rice once in awhile will hurt. Plus, it is paired with healthy lentils. :)
