The Edgy Veg Recipe Round Up

Lately I have been hooked on The Edgy Veg channel on YouTube where Candice Hutchings veganizes childhood cravings and nostalgic comfort foods. Candice, a fellow Torontonian, is someone who has been a huge inspiration to me within the local vegan community.

The Edgy Veg copycat veganized recipes include menu items from Starbucks, Taco Bell and McDonalds. You will also find healthy dishes and recipes for holiday favourites, as well as natural beauty hacks too.

This month The Edgy Veg is hosting a 30 Day Vegan Challenge, which is a fun, easy and collaborative way to get started with the vegan lifestyle. I love this idea as an introduction to veganism. This is an excellent way to learn about your health, how to reduce your carbon footprint and find more compassion for other living beings. To get you started on the challenge Candice has provided resources for delicious meat-free, dairy-free and egg-free meals, so you will not be left wondering what to eat. You can learn more about the challenge here

I super am excited to be bringing you a round up of my 5 favourite recipes from The Edgy Veg library of online recipes and food hacks. You can check out Candice's drool-worthy recipe page here.

1. Jackfruit Carnitas Pulled Pork Tacos

Doesn't the sight of these Jackfruit Carnitas "Pulled Pork" Tacos make you want to put on some fiesta music and cook up this amazing meat-free feast? The texture of Jackfruit is the perfect plant-based swap for pulled pork and young jackfruit, much like tofu, has no taste so it will absorb the flavour of the marinade. Photo credit: Kyla Zanardi.

2. Vegan Kale Caesar

My favourite salad, hands down has always been Caesar Salad. The Edgy Veg version of this classic comfort food is complete with a creamy dairy-free dressing, coconut bacon, vegan parmesan and kale, of course!

3. Vegan Tuna Salad Sandwich

When given the choice of sandwich fillings when I was growing up, tuna salad was always one of my top choices. The Edgy Veg veganized version has no shortage of flavours, and you can make this recipe 2 ways!

4. Chocolate Covered Turtles 

How adorable are these vegan Chocolate Covered Turtles? I love this classic combination of roasted pecans, topped with salted caramel and coasted in a delicious decadent shell of chocolate.
