Vegan Foods

What do vegetarians and vegans eat?

I always laugh at this question, because vegetarians and vegans can eat so much than just lettuce and tofu. This article lists the many foods we can eat.

Of course, this is not a complete list!

Here are some vegetarian and vegan meals:



Vegetarian Chili

Spring rolls

Veggie Sushi



Peanut Butter and Jelly


Vegetable Ravioli

Vegetarian Lasagna

Garlic bread



Indian Food

Also, there are many vegetarian and vegan versions of popular animal-based foods. 

Click here for a list of vegetarian and vegan substitutes for hotdogs, hamburger, sandwich slices, bacon, sausage, beef, chicken, turkey, eggs, milk, cream, butter, cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, yogurt, and ice cream. Some of these foods try to imitate the exact taste of meat and animal foods. Others, like Gardenburgers, do not.

These foods may be more expensive than plain rice and beans, but if you can afford them, they’re great. Each brand tastes different, so if you don’t like one brand, then try another.

There are also many vegetarian and vegan food combinations that are just really unique.

Like, have you ever heard of stuffed pumpkins, tempeh and eggplant pot pie, or mushroom pecan burgers? No, I don’t think you have. There are endless other foods like those three.

Obviously, this list shows that vegetarians and vegans can eat a lot of different foods. So, next time you are asked “what do vegetarians eat?” say “literally almost everything, except for meat!” Or, next time you hear “what do vegans eat?” say “everything, except for meat, milk, and eggs.”
