Through her quick and easy recipes, Olivia takes the fear out of how time-consuming veganism can be and turns it into something anyone can be a part of.

Best for replicas of non-vegan food: The Edgy Veg

best vegan recipe youtube channels.edgy veg

I LOVE The Edgy Veg. Why? One word. Fondue. Cheesecake. Buffalo Wings (okay, that was four words). All of those foods that as vegans you cannot eat but might want to more than you’d like to admit. At The Edgy Veg, these comfort foods are repurposed into vegan delights that taste just as good (or even better) than the original. The vegan world is forever indebted to you.

Masters’ new book The Perfect Blend, released late December 2016, goes further into her love for blending and gives many recipes for recipes on energy, detox, weight loss, low card and alkaline forming.

Best for authentic Asian: Peaceful Cuisine 

best vegan recipe channels on youtube.peaceful cuisine

Ryoya Takashima creates beautiful videos outlining how to create authentic vegan food. These videos are can truly be categorized as food porn. However, if you are a sufferer or misophonia or are very sound sensitive, beware these are extremely audio heavy videos. As a lover of Asian cuisine, I am a particular fan of this channel. Asain food, while wonderful, is in some cases hard to find vegan. Takashima breaks down how to create classic Asian dishes simply enough that even an unskilled, yet determined, kimchee lover like me can master.

Best for raw vegan: FullyRawKristina

FullyRawKristina takes a raw vegan diet from something that sounds dreadfully intimidating to an enticing opportunity for those vegans who are looking for the next step. Kristina bridges the seemingly large gap between vegan and raw vegan by showing how to make classic vegan dishes in a raw vegan way. Her dishes are so colorful they are instagramable and her Pad Thai makes my mouth water. Just one taste of her cream cheese and you’ll be ready to get rid of your stove.

Mary starts out each of her videos with an inviting quip introducing you to her channel. She invites all her ‘friends and not yet friends’ to experience veganism in a new way. Humor is apparent throughout her videos as she brings you along while making delectable vegan entrees that will look good to even the most carnivorous of your friends. From tofu subs to stuffed crust vegan pizza there is never a dull day in Mary’s Test Kitchen.

Best for vegan soul food: Sweet Potato Soul

vegan recipe youtube channels. sweet potato soul

Being a vegan in the dead of winter is hard. All you want is a creamy soup but creamy usually insinuates dairy. Jenné, of Sweet Potato Soul, creates vibrant vegan soups that can trick even the pickiest of eaters. I am a particular fan of her Sweet Potato Bisque. All of Jenné’s recipes will bring you back to your childhood home no matter where you are or what recipe you are making.

Best for family vegan inspiration: Ellen Fischer

vegan recipe youtube channels. ellen fischer

Not only are we super jealous of where Ellen lives (and her super cute kids), she and her family are all raw vegans which are quite a feat to do by yourself, not to mention as a whole family. Ellen uses her knowledge of being a raw vegan family to demonstrate to others that it isn’t as intimidating as it seems. While many children would scurry away at the sign of anything green her two boys gobble up avocados, spinach and green juices as if they were sweets.
