Top 20 Vegan Food Blogs You Should Follow

Top 20 Vegan Food Blogs You Should Follow

Sometimes it feels like there are more vegan bloggers and vloggers out there than there are stars in the sky, which can leave you totally overwhelmed when it comes to deciding which vegan bloggers is the best match for your food preferences, budget, and personality.

Well, we thought we should try to make things a little easier for you, so we put together this list of amazing vegan food blogs and vlogs.

Now don’t get us wrong — it was extremely difficult to choose our top 20! But we thought that these 20 voices covered a wide array of vegan voices and niches out there. We also chose blogs that met three crucial criteria.

Top Vegan Blog Picks Criteria:

  1. They had to be delicious fool-proof recipes
  2. We eat with our eyes first, so it was important to have stunning photography that has you drooling on your keyboard and makes you want to reach through the screen and grab the fork.
  3. Consistent content is important. There were some awesome food blogs from the past that no longer come out with regular fresh content. We love to see the inspiring new creative dishes coming into our feed from the food bloggers we follow!

Ultimately, you’ll want to search for food blogs that resonate with your cooking style and preferences. For example, we at World of Vegan focus on 100% vegan comfort food recipes that seldom require specialty ingredients. We love featuring veganized versions of classic recipes that are traditionally made with animal products.

If you’re someone who likes experimenting with bold new ingredients, like jackfruit or kombucha, or who has food allergies, you can always find blogs that cater to your needs.

Without further ado, let’s check out our top 20 vegan food blogs!

But if you’re a vegan shopping on a super tight budget, Plant-Based on a Budget is the place to be.

Julie at The Simple Veganista started her blog back in 2012 to show people that’s entirely possible to eat a nutritious vegan diet without all sorts of fancy do-dads or spending an arm and a leg. To borrow her quote: “Eating vegan is not about restrictions, it’s about creating new habits, healthy habits that encompass the world around us making it a better place for all.” The Simple Veganista’s recipes are vegan-friendly and are geared towards American cuisine, although she does post raw recipes from time to time.

From these vegan fish tacos inspired by the fish tacos of Baja California Norte to a pre-Colombian champurrado, Dora’s Table’s recipes offer a gastronomic tour of Mexico for vegans who are looking for traditional Mexican recipes.
