I don’t love New Year’s resolutions, especially those that involve the words “diet,” “detox,” or “cleanse.” But if the start of 2015 has you thinking about incorporating more meatless meals into your repertoire, then so much the better. This is a wonderful time of year to explore a plant-based diet, and see where small changes take you. 

In my experience, it’s easiest and most enjoyable to explore veganism one recipe at a time. Fortunately, there’s a vegan recipe for everyone. Whether you love soups and stews, hearty casseroles, crispy kale salads, or a crunchy platter of seared tempeh, you won’t be disappointed in this round up of hearty -- but healthy -- favorites from The New Veganism.

The enchiladas are calling to me. I love mushrooms, spice and Mexican food.
You should try some of these recipes. They're not only vegan but they're the favorite healthy recipes of top vegan food bloggers. I really want to try #9 :)
