Here's How To Make Your Favorite Recipes Vegan

I'm working on improving the quality (and consistency) of the videos on my YouTube channel, so I've been watching a lot of cooking video for inspiration.

Majority of the videos I come across online aren't vegan, but with a few adjustments, you can make nearly any recipe vegan. 

Here's what you do...

Continue to eat some of your favorite dishes, but switch out ingredients for vegan options that are more compassionate (to animals and the planet) and your body.

In the two examples below, I will show you how you can easily switch out the meat, dairy, etc. to make each recipe vegan.

Instead of honey, use agave nectar or Bee Free Honee.

 

Instead of animal flesh, you can purchase vegan chicken from brands like Beyond Meat and Gardein (frozen section at Target).

If you make this recipe, be sure to add the vegan chicken in as the last step because it's already cooked.

Here are the ingredients we need to switch out to make it vegan....

 

Replace with brands like Field Roast or Daiya 

 

A couple of options to replace it...

1) Purchase coconut bacon from Phoney Baloney

2) Make your own coconut bacon with this recipe 

 

A couple of options to replace it...

1) Buy it in the store- Tofutti is the brand I see most often

2) Make your own -

  • 15 oz can full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt

Put the unopened can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. Open the can and remove the creamy coconut on top (you can use the water for smoothies).

Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl and serve as usual.

 

Replace this with Earth Balance vegan margarine or olive oil.

 

Replace with unsweetened almond, coconut milk, soy or almond milk.
