Vegan Comfort Food is the best! In this post, I’m sharing my favorite comfort food recipes for breakfast, lunch & dinner, and dessert!

Vegan Comfort Food Recipes

There are two kinds of people. Those, who eat to get all the nutrients they need for their body to function and those, who eat because it’s awesome and delicious and the best ever. Needless to say, I’m the latter.

I’m all about comfort foods. And I’m sure you’ve noticed this if you’ve been around my blog. So in this post, I’m compiling my favorite comfort food recipes for breakfast, lunch & dinner, and dessert! 

Breakfast

Coconut Curry

Vegan Coconut Curry with Crispy Tofu
Vegan Coconut Curry with crispy tofu – I’m a sucker for curries. Especially when there is broccoli, sweet potato, and tofu involved. There is something about this combination…the sweetness of the coconut milk and sweet potato, the crispiness of the tofu, the broccoli and basmati rice soaking up all the flavors… I just love it.

Spaetzle

Cheesy Spaetzle (Vegan) with chives
Cheesy Spaetzle – a traditional Austrian/German dish! Topped with fried onions and chives. You don’t need eggs for the fluffiest spaetzle!
