It’s Friday once more. We celebrate the culmination of a week’s work and the last weekday before a restful weekend. Thought about making something tasty for your Friday dinner? Want to feel inspired to make some delicious vegan dishes? Today is #FoodFriday and we’re excited to show you our top vegan pics of the week!

After delving into Instagram for the tastiest vegan images, we’ve found our top picks fit for dedicated foodies such as yourself. Some of these images are even accompanied by easy-to-learn recipe guides, meaning you can recreate them at home.

Feeling hungry? Let’s dig in.


Who says you can’t have dessert first? With @bowlmarketcph’s lovely bowl of berries, nuts, peanut butter, and apple slices, we’d certainly want to go straight for the sweets. A genius combination of nutty creaminess and fruity tang, this dessert makes a vacay to Denmark seem like such a good idea.
