The Top 100 VegNews Recipes of All Time: From Mac and Cheese to Juicy Veggie Burgers

While the vegan-friendly restaurant scene is consistently growing (nearly 50 percent of eateries in the US now offer vegan options), sometimes, nothing beats a home-cooked meal.

Research suggests most Americans regularly cook at home. In fact, last year, a report from the National Frozen and Refrigerated Foods Association noted that more than 80 percent of consumers cook more than half of their meals at home. So it makes sense that many of us are constantly scouring the internet for new and delicious-sounding recipe ideas. It’s a lot of time that, to be honest, would be better spent eating.
