Make Better Plant-Based Meals with All-Star Vegan Ingredients

This must-have guide is indispensable for anyone who’s new to plant-based cooking. There’s no need to rely on sad pasta dishes or boring salads to stick to your diet—Wait, That’s Vegan?! author Lisa Dawn Angerame guides you through 26 of the most important ingredients in vegan cooking so you can reach your full potential in the kitchen. You’ll start with aquafaba, beets and coconut milk and make your way to XO sauce, yogurt and zucchini with these simple yet flavorful recipes.

With this book, there’s no need to feel intimidated, as Lisa devotes each chapter to a different vegan staple, giving you the chance to familiarize yourself with each one. Never again puzzle over the difference between flaxseed and aquafaba as egg substitutes or between portobello and jackfruit as meat substitutes, because this book has you covered. Plus, once you know the basics behind these vegan ingredients, the sky’s the limit. Do you crave savory, indulgent favorites, but aren’t sure how to make them vegan? Dive into cooking with nutritional yeast as you make a melt-in-your-mouth Classic Crusty Mac and Cheese, or get familiar with aquafaba and whip up some Not Your Grandma’s Gnocchi. More of a dessert fan? Try a flaxseed-rich Banana-Caramel Upside-Down Cake, drizzled with a Sweet Buttery Miso Caramel sauce.

Whether you’re new to vegan cooking or looking to deepen your understanding of plant-based ingredients, this book is an invaluable guide for anyone who wants to make amazing and nutritious vegan meals.
