Each recipe features step-by-step instructions to transform simple ingredients into flavorful, health-promoting meals that everyone will enjoy. Best of all, the dishes are 100% vegan and made from whole foods.

For kids or picky eaters, try the Sneaky Greens Chocolate Smoothie that includes a whole serving of spinach; it tastes like a chocolate milkshake and is 100% vegan with no added sugar!

My review of Vegan Delish

This was the first time I’d used any recipe app so I had no idea what to expect, but I find it extremely intuitive.  I could see all the recipes straight away or browse by recipe category.

I wanted to make a selection of recipes on Monday and wasn’t planning on going shopping for any special ingredients.  I was very quickly able to browse through some of the recipes that appealed to me and determine whether or not I had the ingredients to be able to make them.

Most of the recipes on Vegan Delish have very easy to find ingredients which I love as I don’t like buying any ingredients that I wouldn’t normally stock in my kitchen.

I was also able to read the reviews for each recipe to find out what other people though of the recipes which encourages me to make a particular dish if I know someone else also enjoyed it.

I then chose 5 recipes that I wanted to make and added them to my favourites.

When I took my device into the kitchen I was able to follow the instructions very easily.  All the instructions are clear, the recipes are quick and easy and get straight to the point.

I managed to make a day’s worth of meals in one and a half hours which is pretty good going I think.  Of course I had lots of leftovers for the next day so didn’t have to cook at all on Tuesday.  I made the following great recipes:

  • No Cook Apple Oatmeal: This is the nicest overnight oats I’ve tasted.  It had a lovely crunchy yet soft texture and each ingredient really held it’s own yet blended together very easily.  This took a couple of minutes to throw together.

  • 4 Ingredient Hummus: This was so quick and easy and just as nice as the store bought ones that I used to love.  I had this with cucumber, carrot and celery sticks for lunch.

  • BBQ Baked Beans: These were so sweet and lovely with lots of sauce which I love in a baked bean recipe.

  • Ultimate Tofu Burger: I’ve tried and failed to make so many vegan burgers in the past and had all but given up.  That was until I tried this burger.  Not only did it make my house smell gorgeous as it was cooking but it tasted amazing too.  So delicious with the beans for dinner.

Ultimate Tofu Burger

  • Chocolate Banana Bars: These were a lovely healthy treat for dessert.  I made a lot of substitutions as I was just using what I had left in my house but amazingly they still worked really well.  These are probably healthy enough that you could eat them for breakfast.Chocolate Banana Bars

As this is pretty much a whole day of food for me, I decided to submit this to What I ate Wednesday so you can get an idea of the types of foods I normally eat.

I always like to be honest on my blog and share the pros and cons of things that I try, which I intended to do but I honestly couldn’t find anything I didn’t like about this app.  I actually really want one myself for my own Green Thickies recipes as using an app like this is so much quicker and easier than trying to navigate a blog with your phone.  It honestly makes planning meals a joy!

So I’m sure you’ll be pleased to know that I have 3 of these to giveaway free.

To enter to win a free download of this app, please leave a comment on this post telling me how your current diet keeps you healthy or how you intend to change your diet to become healthier in the future.  I will randomly select 3 comments from everyone who leaves a comment on Wednesday 3rd April.  Giveaway is now closed.

  1. I’m working to incorporate a diet with a lot less meat and a lot more fresh produce. I just joined weight watchers, but prior to that I have been drinking smoothies and juicing as well! Thank you for this chance!

  2. My diet keeps me healthy because it is filled completely with WHOLE foods and clean eating — NOTHING processed! :)

  3. I’m trying to eat more fresh produce!

  4. Michele Gouveia Allen says:

    Smoothies with fresh fruits and veggies keep me healthy! Just started making Smoothies & Thickies recently and am loving it! :D

  5. Great minds think alike ;)

  6. i try very hard to eat as much unprocessed foods as possible and stay away from any pre-packaged. however, that is almost impossible, but i always make sure to have my servings of fruits and veggies. a balanced diet i think is the most important part.

  7. This will help keep me on track for health and wellness! I also love the Green Thickies and have turned many friends onto them. I am grateful for finding your blog!

  8. Gemma breen says:

    I am moving towards a vegan diet and hope my choices will not only give me more energy to take care of my five-month-old son, but show him and lead by example so he may grow up nurturing his body with good food. x

  9. I am vegan so I feel pretty healthy with what I eat however I know I need to go back to drinking more smoothies, thickies and fresh juice..

  10. Ashley P says:

    I drink a green smoothie every day, eat whole foods, and stay away from processed foods as much as possible

  11. After Struggling with my health and weight for the past ten plus years, I know that I will succeed on this new journey, thanks to websites like these and support from real people who have experienced the same struggles and have done the work to find solutions. I’m finally ready to take control of my health, to eat raw and eat green for life! Thank you!

  12. I want to get in the habit of drinking fresh juice or green smoothies instead of coffee in the morning.

  13. This is JUST GREAT!!! :) Love the whole idea! Thanks!!

    My current eating style (I try not to use the word DIEt – look at the first three letters *cheeky grin*) helps me to be happier and healthier by providing everything I need from majority fresh plant based foods with VERY minimal processed items… My food is colourful and DELICIOUS! I am 80% raw vegan and the transition for the past 10 years to this has CHANGED my life! I have lost 40kg, have a health and wellness business that teaches other people how to make similar changes and that fulfils may passion and purpose. I am bursting with energy and life!

    I love your site – it is one I frequent regularly for new inspiration!! Although I use a FROOTHIE and not a Vitamix! ;)

    Thanks again!! Your work inspires others and I hope that mine will be as popular one day!

    Peace, love & light

  14. As a carnivore of 40+ years, I’ve decided to put myself and my family on a track to veganism. It’s a slow transition, I admit, but I feel it’s the only way that I/we will be successful at it. Every week, I’m experimenting with and substituting more vegan meals into our rotation. I’m happy to have found your blog to give me further inspiration and motivation. We have also been on the green smoothie train ever since we bought a Vitamix 2 years ago…love it! Thanks!

  15. I eat a pretty healthy diet. But I need to work on eating more raw nuts and fruits for snacks instead of chocolate and potato chips. I LOVE Carrie’s recipes, especially her Roasted Garlic Hummus. I would be thrilled to win her app!

  16. Shandi Naugle says:

    I’d like to start eating more fruits and vegetables:)

  17. My plant based diet keeps me full of energy and happy.

  18. Maggie Boxey says:

    I e been eating a plant based (mostly whole foods) diet for almost 7 months. I’ve hit a plateau with my weight loss & energy & I would love some new healthy recipes to try

  19. I put on a few pounds for winter so I just started a Spring Cleanse naturally through the use of healthy spring foods.

  20. Allyson Reddy says:

    My current vegetarian diet keeps me healthy because it’s not the type of vegetarian diet that simply lacks meat–it’s the type of vegetarian diet that concentrates heavily on delicious plant-based foods like brussel sprouts, carrots, avocado, & tempeh! In the future, I intend to reduce my consumption of dairy, especially cheese.

  21. I hope I’m in time to enter! One thing I do to keep my diet healthy is include a green vegetable with every meal, even my green smoothies for breakfast.

  22. I’m trying to really up my intake of fruits and veggies, particularly lots of greens!

  23. Eating healthy and vegan makes me feel amazing
    Inside and out. My only does it make me feel the
    Best I can be but it makes me feel good about
    The impact on the environment and animals lives.
    I can use as many recipes as I can get to keep me cooking
    In the kitchen and avoiding convenient less healthy options
    Also to keep my fiancée interested in trying new vegan meals!
