Welcome to Brand New Vegan!

plant based veganI’m SO glad you found me!  I’m Chuck and I’m a Plant Based Recipe Blogger!

I create and share wholesome, family-oriented, comfort food recipes that just happen to be made from plants.  I’m a Vegan who follows a Whole Food, Plant Based, No Oi Diet as recommended by doctors such as Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn,  and Dr. Neil Barnard.

I created this website to help you transition to this new way of eating, because as somebody who has ‘been there, done that’ – I know it can be HARD.  But with familiar , comfort food recipes you probably grew up with – I know it can be a whole lot easier.

All of my recipes are free, so please enjoy and share with your friends. 

Like what i do?  Love my recipes?  Want to help?

Help me spread the whole food plant based message by joining my Patreon Club. You’ll have access to all my Patreon content, ad-free recipes, free e-books, and my private Facebook Group.

“I’m from Texas and have been very disappointed with many of the vegan chili’s that I’ve tried. I made this recipe tonight and all I can say is…. This recipe is THE BOMB!!  Nothing else need be said!!!”

“Chuck: My wife and I tried this amazing cheese sauce with some whole wheat rotini tonight. Honestly couldn’t resist it…so mac and cheesy without all the cheesy badness. Thanks for the great recipe!! I have shared it on my blog today!”

“This was AWESOME and the hubby claimed this as his favorite vegan meal with meat subs that we’ve tried since we went vegan 4 weeks ago!!!  We are brand new vegans, and we will be back for more!”

“This Mac and “Cheese” is beyond delicious! There aren’t enough words to describe the fabulous mouthfeel and amazing taste! It’s cheesy and gooey…it’s a perfect replacement for real cheese. So amazingly delicious!”

“These are fantastic – hands down the best oven baked fries ever. I wouldn’t have believed how crispy they could be without oil until I tried them myself. I’ve had these 7 out of the past 9 days, and they just keep getting better every time (seriously, you’ve created a monster…). Loving your site – thank you!”   :D

“Chuck, Your recipes have changed our lives for the better. Thank you for sharing. Your recipes make it easy for me to learn to cook. Honesty, I cannot thank you enough!”

“TRY the brand new vegan cauliflower tacos, amazing, not kidding, they are literally the best taco, I’ve EVER, made!!

Bobby Anderson – Plant Fueled Trucker

“Can I just say again how amazing these are?! I cut up a large head of cauliflower and a large package of mushrooms and seasoned it up. I’ve made 3 meals out of the “meat” in place of ground beef, those three meals have made enough for two suppers and a lunch for two people. So cheap, so delicious, so versatile! Chuck you are an angel sent from heaven to show us veggie nirvana. Anyone who hasn’t tried this yet, you gotta do it! Do it now! Stop reading this comment and start cooking. You won’t be disappointed!

“This was my first attempt at making a vegan recipe. All I can say is AMAZE BALLS! I will definitely be making this recipe again and look forward to making more recipes from this site. Thank you Chuck for making this plunge into being a vegan not only tasty but less overwhelming by giving me many ideas of how to keep myself and my husband fed.”

“I made this today, and won a third place trophy in a neighborhood chili cook off, and there were nine other recipes, only two of them were vegan!  And this is Texas!  Very good!”

“Made this chili last night, served it to my husband and he said – no joke …. “This is the best damn chili“!   I had to laugh and congratulate you on the naming of this recipe !! #nailedit ”

“Chuck, I discovered your green chili sour cream a few months ago… It has seriously changed my life!!!! I now sub silken tofu for the cashews to cut down on the fat. Thanks for this recipe!!!”

“Because your recipes and my Man are somehow cosmically linked. He’s liked every single recipe of yours that I’ve made for him. And he’s started to make them himself…which is his way of giving them 2 thumbs up. (This is from a man that happily ate frozen bbq tyson chicken wings and multiple bags of shredded cheese per week just 8 months ago.) Thank you Chuck!”

” I follow a lot of excellent vegan bloggers. I use recipes from all, but, you, Chuck, are my favorite. I made you ‘Best Damn Vegan Chili Ever’ last week. It is fabulous. And, the chicken and dumplings. Oh, my. I will be trying this next!”

” Everyone loves your recipes because they are normal food that everyone eats everyday. Not a fancy recipe you hope you will like. Just good ole home town cooking. ”
