The colder weather and shorter days of fall and winter can bring on the comfort food cravings. Cuddling up with a good book and a giant plate of macaroni and cheese while the snow falls gently outside your window…sounds good to us.
But while rich, decadent foods in moderation can be a treat, you probably don’t want to indulge in them on the daily. That’s where these recipes come in. We’ve rounded up 7 of our favourite vegan versions of comfort food classics, one for each day of the week.
