It was another banner year for veganism, marked by legislative victories, ample mainstream media coverage, and, of course, great food. And no where captures plant-based cuisine better than Instagram, where vegans around the world share gorgeous, inspiring photos of food, fashion, and exciting new products. To celebrate this milestone year for all-things vegan, here are the most popular photos of 2015 on VegNews’ Instagram page.
