Vegan 21 day Kickstart 
For those of you who like to follow set plans I can highly recommend this 21 day plan.  You are given a weekly menu for the 3 weeks, along with recipes for each mean and even a shopping list. Doesn’t get much easier!

Vegan Mother Hubbard
Recipe index is photo gallery style, many of the recipes are vegan alternatives to more traditional meals so probably a good place to start if you are new to vegetarian/vegan cooking.

Vegan Society
have some lovely recipes and include gluten-free, soya-free, on a budget and baby and toddler recipes.

Hell Yeah It’s Vegan 
I like this site as its easy to navigate and has clear sections for dinner, sides, breakfast etc.  Also some great pics accompanying the recipes

Vegan Yack Attack 
This is nice if you want to get a bit more creative, very step by step instructions and lots of great photos of each step

Some nice recipes here – also some good search options (by allergies, seasonal, holidays etc.) as well as the more usual entree, breakfast etc.
