The Edgy Veg Chef-Creator, Candice Hutchings, said: "We are honored and humbled to be recognized by the Taste Awards and are so happy that vegan food is becoming more and more mainstream.

"It gives us even more motivation to create tasty new vegan recipes for the world to fall in love with.

"Our goal is to make easy vegan recipes that carnivores, vegetarians, reducetarians and vegans alike can enjoy, and that remind them of the food they grew up loving."
