This is a sponsored post and I have been compensated. However, all opinions are 100% mine. Have you heard of a dirty vegan? I hadn’t either, but just the name makes me giggle! It is “vegan junk food”, which is healthy vegan food that doesn’t skimp on taste. Dirty Vegan is a celebration of all the amazing tastes and dishes available to those on vegan diets. I have made a few vegan recipes on the blog. One of my favorites are Vegan Carrot Cake Cupcakes.
But cooking like a dirty vegan is exactly what I have been needing in my life! Maybe you would like to cook like one too? Well, you’re in luck. The Dirty Vegan is an all-new cookbook from Catherine Gill. The Dirty Vegan has over 100 vegan recipes in that are styled as “vegan junk food.”
They’re full of flavor while still being good for you. You can find recipes like “Steak” Tips and Sweet Potatoes, Cheddar Bread Ring, S’mores Pancake, Vegan Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Blossoms and Vegan Ravioli Dippers. Yum! You can order The Dirty Vegan on Amazon, Target and Barnes and Noble. The Dirty Vegan isn’t just for vegans! It’s for anyone who wants delicious dishes with minimal equipment or processing.
It was lovingly created by blogger and holistic vegan chef Catherine Gill. She’s been running her popular blog, The Dirty Vegan since 2010. It focuses on comfort food style vegan food that are fun and healthy. She also ran Dirty Vegan Foods, a vegan bakery that specialized in vegan versions of classic desserts. Oh how I would have loved to visit her bakery!
One of my favorite things to eat in the world is soup. If you check out my Pinterest feed, you will see lots of recipes for soups, stews and chills! When I saw a recipe for Loaded Vegan Black Bean Soup recipe in The Dirty Vegan, I had to make it! Not only is it the perfect weather for soup, but it is super easy to make!
Other than the vegan sour cream and cheese, I had all the other ingredients in my pantry and fridge. Just be sure to look at your black beans because some have an animal protein stock, and that is totally against all things vegan! I love to make an easy soup recipe I can simmer and forget about.
This is a recipe you can make on a stove top or in the crock pot. I put this recipe on low in the crock pot for 2 hours and it was perfect! As I mentioned above, The Dirty Vegan is all about flavor and boy do you get that with this recipe! This soup is pretty filling, so you can serve it on it’s own and your tummy will be quite happy.
If you are starving, rustle up a green salad or some crusty bread and you are good to go. One thing is for certain….you will be making this Loaded Vegan Black Bean Soup recipe All.The,Time!
