Ten years ago this week, the Forks Over Knives documentary film hit big and small screens, inspiring national conversation about the power of a whole-food, plant-based diet to prevent and even reverse common chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes. In the years since, with the help of our own Chef Darshana Thacker and many other talented plant-based chefs, we’ve amassed an archive of hundreds of delicious healthy vegan recipes.

To celebrate our 10-year milestone, we’ve gathered 10 of the most popular recipes from the past decade. A big hat tip to FOK readers who’ve made and shared our recipes over the years. Enjoy one of these tried-and-true favorite dishes today!

The recipe I’ve made the most so far is the TuNo and I talk it up all the time and I get hungry for it every few weeks. I’ve also made 3 of the other ones and I can’t wait to try the brownies and all the rest of the 10 I haven’t made yet. THANKS!

These all look delicious, can’t wait to try the Buffalo Bites! I have made the brownies. . . they were great. I also tried a version of them with white beans, no cocoa powder, and instead of date syrup, used strawberry jam [made with only fruit]. That was also wonderful. I love my “strict” [LOL] FOK eating plan! Don’t feel denied at all!

I enjoy my FOK app, where I know I can easily find WFPB recipes without having to conduct any substitutions or do internet research to conduct them. Love the carrot cake, brownies, omelet and dressing. The other ecipes are still on my list to try

The Celeriac Alfredo recipe was terrible. It was dry and had zero taste. I gave half to my parents for dinner and they didn’t care for it either.

I use the Forks Over Knives recipe app all the time! A couple of my go-to recipes are Sneaky Chickpea Burgers and the Lentil, Chard and Sweet Potato Curry.

These ten recipes are EXCEPTIONAL!

Thank you so much! Your recipes keep us 2 elderly people without the usual illnesses. My husband was unable to avoid stents in his heart despite the major changes but he continues to do well. I beat colon cancer and neither of us has arthritus or any of the other “old age” ailments.

You are, without a doubt, saving lives!!

Kaylyn and Ed…two other ‘elderly’ fans here (77/82) agree with you. Still healthy, active and going strong after ten years eating mostly whole, plant based foods. Barbara and George Parker
