Never heard of Healthy Vegan Fridays before? It’s an amazing weekly linkup for bloggers to share their delicious and healthy vegan food. This linkup is not restricted to recipes though – feel free to share your posts on exercise & fitness, plant-based health & wellness,  and/or vegan travel, restaurant and cookbook reviews.

Don’t have a blog? Don’t worry! You can come and see what others have shared and find some tasty food to try!

Let’s check out some of our favs from last week.

Black Rainbow Chard Chili Beans from Allotment 2 Kitchen:

Ok, whenever I make chili, it just looks like a bland, boring dish. I mean, it tastes amazing, so who cares? But I love how Shaheen found a way to pretty it up with some beautiful in season rainbow chard. Tasty AND pretty. Double win.

Cauliflower Lentil Loaf from Green Gourmet Giraffe:

Another dish that isn’t normally pretty, made gorgeous by colourful accompaniments and beautiful food props. Love it. I think this sounds like a great make ahead meal and leaves enough for leftovers – my kind of cooking. Now I just need a helper to help me with my food styling…

Vegan Curry Shepherd’s Pie from Fueled by Carrots:

What a fun twist on a traditional favourite? I enjoy shepherd’s pie and think it’s great to layer in some flavours, textures and spices. This could be a fun Easter dinner for this upcoming weekend.

Flourless Coconut Protein Muffins from And A Dash of Cinnamon:

5 ingredients? Made in 20 minutes? You’ve got my interest. I’m all over the quick, easy, yet still nutritious foods these days. I’m thinking they would be great to make on a Sunday and pack for snacks during the work week. As an added bonus, you can check out beautiful pictures of Belize!

This week, Mary Ellen is sharing her Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting:

How adorable are these??? The combination of carrot and cream cheese is so delicious. And the cute little chocolate bunnies are just an awesome bonus (adding chocolate to anything gets points in my books). Perfect Easter dessert, or anytime this spring.

I’m sharing my Shepherd’s Pie:

Bursting with flavour and loaded with veggies, this makes a wonderful meal to impress guests this coming holiday. Or any old time 😉

We’d love it if you link up and bring some friends to the party! We’ll be pinning and sharing your tasty treats on social media!

    1. Ah… sadly we didn’t make it out to the doggie easter egg hunt. But I hope to share a cute pic of Sunny enjoying an easter treat anyway 😉
      Thanks Julie, I hope you are having a great Easter weekend!

  1. Thank you so much for your kind words and featuring my recipe. I am loving the vegan Shepherds Pie recipes, the weather has got nippy and it is indeed comfort food.

    Have a good Easter, I am looking forward to just enjoying a long long weekend, and glad no work to got to.

    1. Your loaf sounds SO GOOD! I haven’t made a loaf in ages, I definitely need to try it out. I can’t believe we don’t get Friday off here. In Canada most people get Friday and Monday off. I was very sad not to have a long weekend :(
      I hope you are enjoying yours at least =)
