You can’t have a party without vegan buffalo wings! These Buffalo Seitan ‘Wings’ by Melanie Sorrentino are perfectly spicy and sure to be the star of the show. Cauliflower wings are fun, but these vegan buffalo wings are made from seitan, which gives them a meaty texture. Frying them gives the wings a beautifully crispy skin that you can drench in as much or as little spicy Buffalo sauce as your heart desires.

This recipe for Italian Style Lentils by Kristina Humphreys is simple in prep, yet deep in flavor thanks to the quick prep and long cooking time. The herb-infused lentils are also hearty and full of protein–a satisfying and warm winter meal after an icy day. Along with plenty of sautéed garlic, the lentils absorb flavors from the herbs and spices as they simmer until tender. Italian style lentils are delicious over noodles, rice, or even as a soup served with a side of crusty bread.
5. Spicy Sweetcorn and Onion Fritters
These vegan Spicy Sweetcorn and Onion Fritters by Holly Jade are the perfect lunch! Typically, fritters are a batter deep-fried with bread crumbs, but this recipe gives you all the flavors without the deep-frying! The center of each fritter has an onion ring that is not only delicious, but it also keeps the vegan fritters together while they cook.
