Whoever said the fast food is slow to adopt new trends didn’t know about the vegan fast food revolution! In this post, I’m going to show you how 15 different recipes can spice up your cheat day in an instant. These delicious recipes are inspired by some of my favorite food and nutrition blogs on the internet and they will blow your mind and taste buds. See for yourself…
1. Sticky Sesame Cauliflower Wings
I started drooling the moment I saw the headline. YES PLEASE! Healthy, low carb, and delicious, these sticky sesame cauliflower wings are great for any party or just as a treat. The best part? It takes very little time to make them. Bring it on!
2. Carrot Hot Dogs
Makes sense, same shape, it’s just now a healthy alternative, right? Perfect for any barbeque during the summer, these carrot hot dogs, when properly made, look exactly like a regular hot dog but healthier and more nutritious.
3. Sloppy Joes
I love cheat day. Particularly because I can eat a lot of tasty food without the guilt (ok, maybe a bit). But with these vegan sloppy joes, cheat day just got a whole new meaning. Even meat eaters will begin to question their food choices. Lentils and soy-based meat with tomatoes, onions and spices. What more do you want?
4. Vegan Pepperoni
I just couldn’t resist finding a pizza recipe. I mean c’mon, it’s pizza! Having a slice now and then doesn’t hurt, right? Well imagine a tasty pizza with zucchini instead of pepperoni. Not possible? It is and this recipe proves it. You won’t notice the difference and you’ll have a healthier alternative.
5. In-N-Out Style Burger
The vegan-style In-N-Out Burger. That’s all you need to know. Now go and make one and eat it before someone puts a patent on it and you regret it for the rest of your life.
6. Portobello Philly Cheesesteak
I think I gained 15 pounds just looking at this cheesesteak. I don’t care, summer is still a long way to go and I’m hungry for some delicious Portobello Philly Cheesesteak. It’s funny that this particular recipe is actually very healthy (but if you’re like me, you won’t stop at one).
7. Mac And Cheese
The classic American Mac and Cheese just got a vegan overhaul that’s equally delicious and even healthier. I know a lot of cheese aficionados will talk about this particular recipe, but hey, try it before you hate it, right?
8. Grilled Cheese
I hate food photographers. Seriously, they make me involuntarily buy whatever they’ve photographed. The latest thing? This grilled cheese with basil pesto and arugula salad. As if grilled cheese by itself wasn’t enough, they go and add pesto and salad. Don’t get me wrong, it’s healthy but not in the quantities I eat!
9. Mushroom Melt
I need to stop – I’m getting dizzy from all the pictures and the idea of making every single recipe after writing this post.
