Vegan Recipes

Veganism is a lifestyle which eschews the use of animal products as a means of protesting their commodity status. This means that not only are meats off the table, but dairy, honey, eggs, and other foods that come from animals are prohibited from your plate.

As a result many foods, such as many baked goods, can be particularly difficult to create. Veteran vegans know that there are infinitely innovative ways to get around these restrictions in recipes in order to recreate redolent flavors and textures with entirely vegan ingredients.

While many are tried and tested, without a handy list of reliable recipes, you may find yourself performing regular tests of substitutions in different non-vegan recipes. While substituting bananas for eggs works for copious confections, experienced vegan bakers know that this is not a one-size fits all solution.

The major downside to these spur of the moment substitutions is that they often require ample amounts of experimentation to produce a plate that not only acts as an adequate source of all the nutrients the body needs but that also tastes great. There's nothing worse, after all, than laboring over a dish for an hour or more only to discover its paltry palate has rendered it inedible.

Fortunately, we here at Nuts.com are dedicated to creating a repository of recipes that meet any and all of your vegan needs. Browse the directory below for a full list of recipes that meet the restrictions of the vegan diet with potent palates that are patently pleasant (we promise!).
