There were tons of great veggie stories in 2015. Here’s a look at some of the best.

#5 IKEA Launches Vegetarian Meatballs.
The home decor store with an eat-in restaurant had some bad press for the alleged horse meat in its regular meatballs.

#4 Morrissey Gives First In-Person Interview in Decade.
Ten years is a long time. Especially when you haven’t talked vegggie in person. The Smiths former singer came back and gave the world a few lessons on why they should never be hungry enough to eat animal flesh on Larry King Now.

A vegan chef who has prepared meals for almost every celebrity who’s expressed an interested in a plant-based diet offers ideas that are similar to what you’d find in his restaurant and definitely not what you’d find in the standard meat serving establishment that offers the salad plate for the vegetarian offering.

“Restaurants get it wrong all the time by serving fake meat that doesn’t interest meat eaters, or a vegan plate that’s little more than an uninspired pile of vegetables,” Ronnen writes in Crossroads.

Holy Cow: A Modern-Day Dairy Tale is the first novel from the X-Files and Californication actor.
