When I'm feeling a little dangerous, I'll sometimes abandon my carnivorous leanings and opt for some vegan fare. Deviant social behavior, I know. But the good news is I don't feel like a wisp of a person the day after — I feel as satisfied as I would if I hewed to my normal diet chock full of meat-based proteins (thank you, meat-free proteins, non-burger burgers, and dairy-free cookies).

Here are 22 vegan dishes that'll satiate any non-vegan:
