10 Great Vegan Comfort Foods

Sure, half the fun of going vegan is experimenting with exotic new cuisines, but some days you just can't face another miso-basted eggplant or white bean cassoulet. These great vegan comfort foods aren't necessarily healthy, but they're a convenient way to satisfy your snack cravings without falling off the vegan wagon.
1. Fruit

Self-explanatory and delicious.

2. French Fries (or Potato Chips)

A great indulgence at restaurants that aren't quite vegan-friendly.

3. Vegan Brownies

Sure, most of them taste like chocolate sponges, but try this recipe (or its variations) and you will never look back, I promise.

4. Spaghetti with Marinara Sauce

Check the ingredients, but many standard marinara sauces are vegan. Throw in some chopped veggies or soy sausage crumble if you have time.

5. Silk Soy Milk

You can shop around and even make your own soy milk -- actually, I recommend it. However, few soy milks compare to the Silk brand for sheer milky snacking satisfaction. Plain is good, but there are several other options, from mocha to Silknog.

6. So Delicious Purely Decadent Vegan Ice Creams

They don't taste exactly like ice cream, but with indulgent flavors like Chunky Mint Madness and Blueberry Cheesecake, you probably won't mind.

7. Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches

They're a classic for a reason.

8. Oreos

Check the package, but in many locations oreos are now vegan. Dunk them in your soy milk.

9. Imagine Soups

These delicious, organic, ready-to-eat soups come in a range of flavors. My favorite is creamy potato leek.

10. Grilled Portabello Mushrooms

Give the veggie burgers (which don't taste much like burgers anyway) a pass and try grilling a whole portabello mushroom, basted lightly with oil and vinegar. Serve it on a bun, with all your favorite burger fixings.
