Welcome to Brand New Vegan!
I’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 Oil 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.

Potato Enchiladas? Really? Being a former New Mexican, I never would have thought of using potatoes for Enchilada Filling, but I was so wrong! With the addition of mushrooms, and a little dab of Tofu Sour Cream on top these potato enchiladas are the BOMB! Oh my...read more
A good sauce can make all the difference in the world to an otherwise boring plate of rice, noodles, or veggies. Of course I make sure all my sauces are made from Vegan ingredients, but I also try to make them as fat-free as I can. Because we all know that: The fat...read more
One of the very first recipes I tried from Dr. McDougall's Quick & Easy Cookbook, so many years ago, was this recipe for Black Bean Sloppy Joes. I always loved sloppy joes when I was a kid growing up. And as a young man you could still find me pushing a can of...read more
Doesn't this Creamy Mushroom Stroganoff bring back memories of a much simpler time? Sitting around the table to mom's weekly Beef Strogonoff? Those creamy noodles, chunky bits of beef, and oh man, that sauce! That sour cream sauce was a meal all by itself! This...read more
