10 most loved vegetarian and vegan recipes of 2013

At the beginning of 2013, I started The Cooking Project. The goal was to learn my way around the kitchen by recreating many of the recipes by Kelly Rossiter found on TreeHugger as well as expanding to new recipes that you, dear readers, would love. All said, I think the project has found success in that I've learned a lot -- from combining spices to finding seasonal ingredients to improving vegan baking skills -- and you have explored the recipes alongside me. In fact, some recipes have been really well received. These are the 10 most popular recipes from The Cooking Project this year, and I have to say, you all sure love your avocados!
