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.

I think I've tried Sushi (or a California Roll) once in my life - and I honestly didn't care for it that much. I think it was the seaweed. Never had much experience with seaweed growing up in Indiana. But after reading about an experience with a fellow WFPB reader...read more
I knew from the minute I first tried Soy Curls that this recipe was coming. They are just PERFECT for an good old fashioned Texas Style BBQ Sandwich. The look, the feel, the texture, everything about them screams "pulled pork sandwich". And with the addition of just...read more
I got to tell you, these Vegan Italian Sausages I made last week are really amazing. You can add them to just about any dish - like this quick and easy Italian Sausage with Peppers and Tomatoes. Something about spicy Italian Sausage mixed with fresh garlic, roasted...read more
Busy day at work? No time to cook? Tempted to just order out? Then consider this quick and easy Ginger Veggie Stir Fry that you can whip up in minutes! Start with some chewy Rice Noodles Add in some healthy Stir Fry Veggies Stir in this warm and comforting Ginger...read more
I have been wanting to make some homemade Seitan for quite some time now. I like it's chewy texture in my stews and chili. In fact, the texture is so similar I sometimes completely forget I'm not eating meat. Yes, I've tried Tempeh, and I've tried Soy Curls, but for...read more
Ready for the Ultimate Pizza Sauce? Come on, who doesn't love pizza? And just because we're vegans now doesn't mean we have to give it up - we just have to tweak it a bit. A whole wheat crust, a few more veggies, this ultimate pizza sauce, and maybe even a little of...read more
This Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas dish has been a long time coming. It was easily one of my family's favorite dishes back in New Mexico - especially this time of year when the first batch of Hatch Green Chiles would appear in the stores. But since becoming Vegan, it...read more
I love stews. They're so thick and filling, and I make sure mine are chock full of good healthy starches and veggies. Like this recipe for my Hearty Vegetable Stew. I normally make a big pot of Chili to take for my work lunches, but yesterday I pulled this one out of...read more

Sometimes you just need something quick and easy. Like this Chinese Noodle Soup - right out of the McDougall Quick and Easy Cookbook. I had just finished my work week and had woken up from my nap, and found the wife and daughter both starving. My wife was suggesting...read more
Having a family member with Crohn's Disease can be a huge challenge if you're the cook of the house. Trust me, I know. When my daughter mentioned the health benefits of Sweet Potatoes, I knew instantly I was going to find her a soup she could eat. A healthy soup full...read more
Never in a million years would I believe that this traditional midwestern 'meat n potato' guy would enjoy a bowl of Savory Miso Soup. Nope - never. In fact before tonight, I have never had it. Kimchi either. But thanks to my Sushi loving daughter - who happened to...read more
Having lived in both Indiana and Texas, going to a fish fry was a common thing. And it just wasn't a fish fry unless you had a side of these crunchy little cornbread balls we called Hushpuppies. Remember Long John Silvers or Arthur Treachers? Mmm, that was some...read more
