Episode 2, The Homemade Vegan Pantry by Miyoko Schinner
I’ve had the honor of meeting Miyoko a couple of times. We’ve hung out at various vegfests around the country, and she has graciously donated cheese to events we’ve produced, let me share her recipes and she comes into my kitchen through her INCREDIBLE books. I simply adore and admire her so much! I use this book repeatedly. There are recipes I know by heart now and have made my own. The teaching that happens in this book is easy to follow and delivers delicious results!
Yes, these days folks are super excited about all of the vegan products on mainstream grocery store shelves, singing the praises of convenience and the abundance of options. I think that’s great and I definitely have mass produced pantry staples I buy on the regular. (Looking at you, Vegenaise.) BUT – I also love to be in the kitchen, and I love making as much of our food as I can from scratch. Not only is it often tastier and healthier, but it’s much lighter on the planet (less plastic packaging!) and also lighter on the wallet. Making ketchup is dirt cheap but buying quality ketchup can cost upwards of $5 a bottle. You get the drift! Give episode 2 a watch, subscribe if you want, and tell a friend if that’s your style. The more vegans, the merrier!
