Plant-based cookbooks like Thug Kitchen and Food52’s Vegan are flying off of bookstores’ shelves, but when it comes to finding recipes in a pinch, it’s practically impossible to top the ease and convenience of Pinterest. From pasta dishes and sweet potatoes, to desserts and party snacks, the ultimate mood board maker has everything you could ever want in terms of meat- and dairy-free dishes. Here are the 10 vegan recipes Pinterest users are loving the most right now.
1. Cinnamon Apple Chips
Satisfy a sweet tooth (or give the kids a healthful after-school option) with these easy, perfect-for-fall baked apples.
2. Baked Sweet Potato Fries
Prepared simply with just olive oil and seasonings, these nutritious and deliciously sweet spuds will find their way onto dinner plates aplenty in your house.
3. Vegetable Lo Mein
Not only will this homemade version of your favorite take-out dish be lighter on fat and calories than the original, but with all that extra TLC, it’ll taste better, too.
4. Vegan Pancakes
Skipping milk and eggs doesn’t have to mean sacrificing this all-American breakfast. Just swap in nut milk, slather on a pat of dairy-free butter, and let the (naturally vegan) maple syrup flow!

9. Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers
Loaded with superfoods like sweet potato, quinoa, black beans, and flaxseed, these burgers are so sink-your-teeth-in good that even an omnivore couldn’t resist.
