Who We Are

Best of Vegan is a digital culinary publication dedicated to vegan recipes and the plant-based culinary scene. Since January of 2014, our main goal has been to showcase all that vegan food has to offer and show people that you don’t have to sacrifice taste when you adopt a vegan lifestyle.

We love to encourage all of our readers, vegan or not, to try the recipes we feature at home and enjoy finding new ways to cook and prepare food. In addition to recipes, we feature innovative restaurants and their stories all across the globe.
