Seven Super Nutritious Vegan Dishes

In my last post, I addressed the most common deficiencies that vegans & vegetarians experience. There I listed the best foods for a well-rounded vegan diet, but here I've gone a step further, crunched some numbers and found seven recipes that should be kept up every vegan or vegetarian sleeve.

Important note about non-dairy milks: fortified non-dairy milks vary greatly in their nutrient content; pay close attention to the Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D content -- the more, the better, of course! While you're there, take a look at the ingredients list as well, and try to choose the milk with the least ingredients. After hours of calculating recipes, these are the most densely nutritious I found—so you can see why it's often recommended that vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike take a vitamin D and/or B12 supplement.

***my note on DV (daily value): these percentages are calculated for the average person. Depending on the makeup of the biologically complex miracle that is you, you may need more or less of a given nutrient.***
