I’ve identified Three Kinds of Vegans to help people who are transitioning or maintaining a vegan diet to better understand the types of foods and recipes they’re into. This post provides recipes and resources for the Fearless Vegan.
A Fearless Vegan is into healthy foods, but is also willing to compromise in the name of taste. That may mean having organic quinoa flour pizza crust, but they’re more than willing to have processed vegan sausage and vegan mozzarella cheese dripping on the plate.
Here are some fun characters that represent the Fearless Vegan type.
Celebrity Profile: Ellen
Cartoon Character: Bugs Bunny. He’s clearly vegan, but still one cool dude.
Celebrity Vegan Chef: Simon Rimmer
The Fearless Vegan craves healthy food, but also likes a variety of vegan, gourmet dishes. Fearless Vegans care about their health, the environment and the welfare of animals, but they also like the curb appeal of veganism. In some ways, they like standing out from the crowd and being a Fearless Vegan helps them do that.
The Fearless Vegan doesn’t mind searching for the right ingredients. Black quinoa? Check! Hemp seeds? Got it! Cashew Milk? Bring it on. The new Ben & Jerry’s vegan ice cream will definitely be on their to do list for the weekend.
Whether you’re new to a vegan diet, been around awhile, or just coming and going as you please, it’s good to have a variety of recipes to try. Here are some recipes from Namely Marly that will get the Fearless Vegan jonesing.

Baked Naan (goes great with that Coconut Curry above)
