These healthy recipes follow a broader interpretation of the vegan diet.
For those who follow a vegan diet, which means no animal products of any kind including eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, and other
dairy products, we've identified recipes that meet those criteria with each recipe. We've focused on the widest interpretation
of a vegan diet, so some of the recipes we've identified as vegan do include honey.
To begin our vegan recipe journey, we'll start with Potato Roti Curry. This mild, soupy side dish hails from the Caribbean, where it's often made with sweet calabaza squash and served alongside or stuffed into the tortillalike Indian flatbread roti.

Serve these alongside soups or salads. You can bake the breadsticks the night before, cool them to room temperature, and store
them in an airtight container; serve them at room temperature, or reheat them in the microwave the next day.

This recipe was developed for a dad who doesn't like mayonnaise. Instead, it's dressed with a summery vinaigrette that permeates
the potatos with flavor (make sure to add it while they're still hot). Cherry tomatoes, colorful peppers, cool cucumbers and
salty olives add a variety of flavors and textures that sets this potato salad apart.
