Delicious vegan alternatives for popular ingredients
You won't even notice the difference!
The vegan lifestyle and recipes have been gaining traction in recent years, with products like meat alternatives and coconut-based everything soaring up in popularity. While many previously thought that vegan options were limited to chunks of iceberg lettuce, roasted vegetables, or dry rice noodles, restaurants around the world are experimenting with new ways of cooking old dishes without any animal by-products, which can inspire your own cooking.
But despite this boom in vegan delicacies, many who are unfamiliar with vegan cooking find it difficult to get their hands on recipes that don’t include ingredients they can no longer (or are trying not to) eat. And, quite frankly, sometimes you just want to make a batch of cookies without having to search through six websites before you find a recipe that tickles your fancy.
Well, never fear. There are plenty of alternatives for some of the most basic ingredients, which will allow you to make your favorite recipes into vegan dishes that you can be proud of, knowing that you're helping animals, your environment, and your body at the same time.
Whether you're going for an all-out vegan lifestyle or merely trying to include it in your cooking arsenal, there are plenty of unique options out there that can be replaced with vegan alternatives.
