Instagram is the driving force behind a whole generation dedicated to taking perfect eyebrow pics, posting the best of what’s on their plate, and glamming up companion animals to be stars of their very own accounts. Amongst all of this photo (and video) sharing, we sussed out the funnest #vegansofig for recipe videos, decadent doughnut creations, stunning raw food, and more. Here are ten that we just can’t stop scrolling through.
For: Recipe seekers
Behind the @: This is the powerhouse company behind the eggless Just Mayo and a new line of vegan baking mixes, creamy dressings, and cookie dough available at nationwide big box retailers such as Target.
What they post: In addition to bright, sometimes messy, photos of food made with their products (think stacked pancakes with syrup dripping every which way), the company posts aerial video recipes—set against a fun tune and enhanced with a few magic editing tricks—that include their cookie dough in milkshakes, their dressings in casseroles, and a vegan remake of Taco Bell’s Crunch Wrap with the help of Just Mayo.
Behind the @: Katie Higgins first hit the vegan scene with her blog Chocolate Covered Katie driven by the combination of her insatiable sweet tooth and desire to incorporate nourishing foods into healthy dessert recipes.
What she posts: On any given week, creations such as three-ingredient fudge, raw cheesecake, and molten chocolate lava cake—with a gooey mashed raspberry center—share the spotlight with cheesy cauliflower crust pizza and creamy red pepper alfredo pasta.
For: Busy bakers
Behind the @: Dana Shultz and husband John founded the wildly popular blog Minimalist Baker in 2012 where recipe developer and author Dana posts plant-based (and increasingly gluten-free) dishes that follow this guideline: they contain 10 ingredients or less, are made in one bowl, and take no more than 30 minutes to prepare.
What they post: Simple seasonal recipes such as one-bowl cakes and eight-ingredient lasagna along with the couple’s vegan finds on trips to worldwide destinations such as Kyoto, Japan.
I’d love you to meet our son, Arlo. ☺️ He entered the world fast and furiously on Wednesday, and we are all smitten with this little guy. He’s the biggest snuggle bug ever, and big sis Adriana is making sure his hat and blankie are on at all times, lol. Thank you all for your well wishes this week! We’re healthy and doing great. ❤️
For: New moms
Behind the @: Angela Liddon is a busy Canadian-based blogger, cookbook author, and mother of toddler Adriana and infant Arlo.
What she posts: Between cute baby pictures and docu-photos of lazy family afternoons, you’ll find a collection of hearty bowls of oatmeal, salads, and grain-based dishes Liddon throws together for lunch to keep her family running.
For: Rawsome renegades
Behind the @: Vancouver blogger Emily von Euw embodies the “rawsome” life with her nutritious raw recipes and attitude toward protecting animals and the environment.
What she posts: Raw cakes dripping in caramel sauce, vegan remakes of classic candy (raw Twix!), and brightly-colored tarts alongside burgers made raw with the help of portobello buns, all accented by high contrast photography and a few snaps of von Euw’s black line tattoos.
For: The musically inclined
Behind the @: When she’s not on the road, Blink-182’s chef and cookbook author Mary Mattern frequents Moby’s Los Angeles restaurant Little Pine and Travis Barker-backed Crossroads.
What she posts: Mattern documents her life on the tour bus, often posting snaps of herself cooking for vegan boss Travis Barker, celebrities she encounters along the way, and all the vegan food she scouts at local eateries between shows.
For: Produce enthusiasts
Behind the @: Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram advocates consuming at least one fully raw meal per day through her various social media channels, which include insightful YouTube videos.
What she posts: A bounty of rainbow-colored fruits and vegetables, yoga poses, and enough variations on zoodle-based dishes to inspire your for weeks.
10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND this #foodpornagraphic BIG MAC from @organixla 😋, which is essentially the type of food I would run miles for just to eat it everday😅😂. Oh yea, and a big YUCK to @mcdonalds for being the douchey-est place on earth 😘 Organix does it better ❤#ALLLOVETHO #Veganismtakingover #getamacdilla #vegan
For: Photography buffs
Behind the @: Krystle Pascual is a photographer who captures the colorful vegan food around her with crisp, mouthwatering photos.
What they post: Whether it’s heaping platters of vegan sushi, the perfect plant-based burger, vibrant green smoothies, or veggie-loaded pizzas, wherever there is gorgeous vegan food, Pascual is there to get the shot.
For: Food truck fans
Behind the @: Eccentric chef Adam Sobel launched award-winning food truck Cinnamon Snail on Valentine’s Day 2010 in New Jersey and has since gained a cult following in the tri-state area and beyond.
What they post: Boxes stuffed full of crème brûlée donuts, specials from the truck’s new brick-and-mortar location at New York-based The Pennsy food court, and wife Joey’s intricate vegan cake creations.
For: Donut fiends
Behind the @: The Los Angeles-based shop will wow you with customizeable doughnuts that can be stuffed with anything from ice cream to chocolate hazelnut spread, then topped with glazes, sprinkles, and chocolate shavings.
What they post: A collection of the store’s over-the-top creations such as the Srirachosin—a traditional cake doughnut stuffed with peanut butter, strawberry jam, coconut bacon, and dotted with spicy Sriracha sauce—served in-store and at events around town.
