Internet Vegan Recipe Finds

Since I eat (mostly) plant-based, it is key for me to make hearty, flavorful meals that leave me satisfied. In that regard, I am a ‘foodie’ (<—dreaded word) as ever. With cutting out entire food groups, it becomes a creative challenge to come up with new recipes. Here are some vegan internet recipes that inspire me to try something new. They seem to be promising in the flavor, texture and satisfaction department.
