You won’t find a lot of paleo recipes on I Heart Vegetables since vegetarian food often revolves around beans and grains. But it just so happens that there are a few times when plant-based meals and paleo meals overlap. As someone who is always looking for ways to encourage people to eat more vegetables, I thought it might be helpful to put together some ideas for recipes that are both paleo and vegan. Whether you’re strictly paleo, you’re cooking for someone with different dietary preferences, or you’re just looking for some new recipe inspiration, I hope you’ll try some of these paleo vegan recipes!
