The Edgy Veg

My Top 10 Most Viral Vegan Recipes

After a decade of building recipes on Edgy Veg, I wanted to share with you my Top 10 most popular recipes that went viral on the internet. I believe that these recipes went viral because of their creative execution and high-quality taste. Vegan recipes are the future of food and I am so excited to be revolutionalizing the way we eat.

I have compiled the list based on the blogs with the highest website traffic and 5-star reviews rated by our blog readers. Over the years, vegan cooking has introduced so many possibilities of recreating many classic meat recipes into vegan versions. These recipes are great for new vegans who are looking into making simple and tasty vegan dishes or want to impress their vegan guests!

My Top 10 Most Popular Vegan Recipes

These recipes are a great segway to introducing ingredients that are commonly used around the world.

Expanding your knowledge and interest in vegan recipes can teach you various types of cooking methods that you can transfer into creating even more recipes. The beauty of vegan cooking is that you can always integrate recipes you already know and love by substituting recipes that are vegan-friendly.

Some of the Vegan recipes on this list are also gluten-free and nut-free in case you’re appealing to a diet that requires it.

Vegan Buffalo Wings (1 hour 35 mins)

This is the most perfect replica to Buffalo Wings – using Seitan Chicken! It took me nearly 2 years to perfect the moist and perfectly spiced vegan wings. I promise you they will taste JUST like the meat version. You can create these imitation “bones” using sugar cane or popsicle sticks, or turn these into  “boneless” chicken nuggets! While cauliflower wings are irreplaceable chicken alternatives in the vegan community, these seitan wings are a tough recipe to compete with.  Get the recipe here!

Chick-Fil-A Chicken Sandwich (1.5 hours)

What if we can live in a world where there were more vegan options at fast-food restaurants than meat options? Let’s start with Chick-Fil-A! Unfortunately, Chick-Fil-A doesn’t offer vegan options and they do not support the LGBTQ+ community as there have been numerous sources indicating CFA’s donation to support anti-LGBTQ organizations. As a result of this profanity, I wanted to help both my vegan and the LGBTQ+ community by re-creating the Chick-Fil-A recipe, so you don’t have to support companies like this anymore. Let’s reintroduce the hype of “Chik-Fil-A” by making it vegan and LGBTQ+ friendly! Get the recipe here!
