Best vegan recipes for a reluctant wannabe mostly-vegan?

highlyunlikely | Jul 2, 202104:29 AM     36

I am hoping to expand my vegan repertoire this summer, mainly for health reasons and because it's better for the environment....but I am not at all excited by the majority of vegan cookbooks/recipes I've perused.

I have no trouble finding vegetarian recipes I love, but they usually contain cheese, eggs and/or butter (eg. Ottolenghi's black pepper tofu - the butter is what knocks it out of the park).

I have no intention of becoming totally vegan but I would like to have 5-10 amazing vegan mains that I can add to the rotation, plus a few appetizers and/or desserts. What are your favourites?

ETA: I do have a few vegetarian curries / stir-fries up my sleeves and would be grateful for recommendations for more, but am hoping to branch out and am looking for summery recipes. Thanks!
