Below are ideas and tips for converting non-vegan dishes to vegan:
*Cooked beans can be added in place of poultry chunks in soups. *Sliced fake meats can be substituted in equal amounts for meat. *Sliced vegan soy cheese can be exchanged for airy cheese, and soy yogurt and soy cream cheese function the same as their dairy counterparts. *Soy, hemp, almond, or rice milk can be used to replace dairy milk,
Here are some vegan ingredients that you might try to exchange in baking recipes:
*for refined sugar or honey: Succanat (a dry vegan sweetener), turbinado sugar, maple syrup, orange or apple juice concentrate, fruit purées, applesauce
*for eggs: tofu, applesauce, puréed or mashed bananas, Egg Replacer (a dry product made by Ener-G Foods).
*for milk: soy, rice or grain milks, puréed tofu, fruit juices
*for butter or lard: vegan margarine, vegetable oil, fruit purées, applesauce, puréed tofu, nut butters
Let us know if you have questions or need some ideas for dishes to bring. Yay! See you there!
