Salads & Side Dishes

Vegan side dishes like French fries and mashed potatoes are traditionally cooked in oil and doused in butter. Here we offer dairy-free and oil-free vegan side dishes that can be enjoyed guilt-free. We've combined vegan salads with side dishes in this category, but that doesn’t mean that our salads aren't meal-worthy on their own. Most contain beans and/or whole grains to make them very hearty. If you’re making your salad ahead for lunch the next day, just be sure to pack your dressing on the side.
