Best Vegan Recipes of 2019 (1)

It's that time of year again. Where we wrap things up and take a look back at what recipes were most popular on A Virtual Vegan in 2019.

I’ve made it a bit of a tradition and if you want to, you can look back at the top 10 vegan recipes for2016and2017 and 2018 too.

That time between Christmas and new year is always a funny one. What day is it? I don't even know. Eating appetizers and drinks instead of a proper dinner, staying up late watching Christmas TV (top highlight the Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special. I might live in Canada now, but nothing can beat British TV!)

... The days kind of all run in together.

It's been a year of ups and downs for me. Personally it's been a very tough one. It's the year I said goodbye to my dear Dad :O(

But along with the lows there have been highs. Like becoming a best selling author. Did you check out my book Vegan Comfort Cooking yet?

Sit back, grab a warm drink, maybe a snack (I'm still all about the Vegan Gingerbread Cake), and cozy up with the recipes that were loved the most in 2019, in case you missed them the first time around!

Count down with me in reverse order to see which recipe claimed the Best Vegan Recipe of 2019 Number 1 spot!
