50 Guy-Friendly Plant-Based Recipes


One of the most common questions I get on plant-based eating is how to convince men that they can forfeit meat in lieu of eating more plant-centric meals. And my response is always: Make plant dishes taste and look delicious! Plants provide so much flavor, color, texture, and aroma to any meal. In honor of all of the fabulous men out there, I put together this amazing collection of guy-friendly plant-based recipes from some of my favorite bloggers, sure to capture the attention of all the men in your lives. Bon appetit!
