Eating vegan doesn’t have to be hard. Grocery stores are filled with ingredients that can help you maintain a balanced vegan diet, and our Vegan Pantry List will help fill your cupboards with the right staples.

Since every piece of food we eat has an impact on the environment, eating vegan helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions, animal cruelty, and energy and water consumption. It also helps protect our marine life and rainforests from excessive animal waste and deforestation. Plus, a vegan diet has so many health benefits!

So if you are new to a vegan diet but still want to enjoy more meals than just pasta with marinara every night, this Vegan Pantry List PDF will definitely help you grasp the full spectrum of vegan ingredients. Or if you’ve already been eating more ethically for a while but could use a handy vegan shopping list to remind you what to pick up anytime you dash into the grocery store, our guide is great for that.

Vegan Fettuccine Alfredo

Skeptical of cashews and white beans standing in for classic creamy Alfredo sauce? We were too … until we tried this one. We’re sure you’ll love this fresh take on the classic with broccoli and peas mixed in! 

Buddha Bowl with Green Goddess Dressing

Buddha Bowls are full of color and fresh flavor. With roasted chickpeas and walnuts to add flavorful vegan protein and an avocado-based green goddess dressing to add a creamy, dreamy dimension, this bowl is both satisfying and filling.

Coconut Milk Panna Cotta with Berry Sauce

This luscious, creamy coconut milk panna cotta is lightly sweetened and set with agar-agar in this vegan-friendly dessert. Topped with a simple berry sauce, it’s supple, luxurious, and a great make-ahead dessert. 

Easy-Swaps Vegan Recipes

Every recipe we make has a vegetarian version, so our vast recipe archives have hundreds of delicious meat-free recipes that only need a minor tweak or two to make them completely vegan. Here are three of them.

Marinated Tempeh Tacos with Corn and Peach Salsa

These tacos with fresh corn and peach salsa are some of our faves. They are packed with tons of flavor from a sweet and tangy honey-mustard marinade that can easily be made with agave nectar instead.

Pasta e Fagioli with Vegan Sausage

The combination of textures and flavors in this 35-minute “pasta and bean” soup make it easy to see why this is an Italian classic. Just swap out the Parmesan for a vegan cheese and you’re good to go.

Quinoa Fried Rice with Vegan Sausage

We’ve given takeout fried rice a healthier makeover by using protein-packed quinoa and vegan sausage. Best of all, it doesn’t take a lot of ingredients to create this easy dish, so it’s ready in just 30 minutes!
