ve·gan ston·er [vee-guhn stoh-ner] — noun: one who satisfies the munchies with resourceful, creative, instinctive cooking without using animal products.
These recipes are designed to make vegan cooking fun, feasible, quick, and on a dime. Each recipe—for a sauce, a stuffing, or a base—is a potential component in your personal munchie menu. Mix and match with confidence. Substitute ingredients and flavors to personalize dishes for you, for two, or for a party. Explore the depths of your creativity.
There will be moments when you will be in doubt. Trust yourself, dig in with your fingers, and grab what feels right. Pay attention to consistency, texture, smell, and, most importantly, your taste buds. In time you will rely less on exact measurements and more on instinct.
Don’t be afraid to go where no one in your kitchen has gone before. Cook for yourself, and know that the only success in cooking is when you have fun.
