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!
