Top 5 Vegan Recipes Your Non-Vegan Family and Friends Will Love

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Columbia Chicago chapter.

With the holidays right around the corner, holiday eating can be difficult when with non-vegan family and friends. I find that if I don’t tell someone a dish is vegan, healthy, gluten-free or otherwise, they like the food one hundred times better.

That said, the key to winning at Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year’s Eve and everything in between is comfort food—vegan comfort food made with delicious, fresh ingredients that make it taste exactly like the original. These are 5 of my go-to recipes to bring to family and friend gatherings for the holidays.
