How to Use Liquid Aminos

If you’ve ever seen a bright yellow bottle with two happy looking old people on it, you’ve probably wondered exactly what are Bragg’s Liquid Aminos. Basically, it’s an unfermented, soy sauce-like product made completely form soy beans and water (meaning it’s wheat free) and it is delicious.Read more… Continue Reading at http://lifehacker.com

Make This Vegan, One-Ingredient Caramel Sauce In Your Instant Pot

Transforming a can of sweetened condensed milk into a rich caramel dip using either your slow cooker or pressure cooker has long been a favorite trick of mine. There’s no mixing or measuring, but there is (obviously) a lot of dairy. This may seem to leave our vegan and lactose-intolerant friends in the caramel-less…Read more… […]

Meatless Thanksgiving Mains You’ll Want to Eat

Thanksgiving is all about bringing people together, but for vegetarians and vegans, holiday meals can be meat-centric to the point of alienation. Nobody—not even your worst cousin—should have to poke at leftover crudités, cranberry sauce, and maybe some stuffing while everyone else gets to eat whatever they want.Read more… Continue Reading at http://lifehacker.com

How to Make Vegans Feel Welcome at Your Omnivore Thanksgiving

As a carnivore whose foodie philosophy is “make things as delicious as possible, whatever it takes,” I used to see vegan dinner guests as something I had to workaround, and for that, I apologize. Vegan foodies can go on about how delicious soy bacon is, but as a cook who eats meat, I tended to […]

You Won’t Miss the Meat in This Rich, Oven-Roasted Vegan Ragú

Hearty ragú is classic cold-weather fare, and it’s usually the first thing I make when the temperature finally drops below 50ºF overnight. I eat meat, but I haven’t made traditional, meat-heavy ragú bolognese for years. Believe it or not, vegan eggplant and mushroom ragú has completely ruined me for traditional,…Read more… Continue Reading at http://lifehacker.com

How to Get Started on a Plant-Based Diet

That Study About Unhealthy “Plant-Based Diets” Didn’t Actually Compare Plant-Based Diets

If you eat a plant-based diet, you don’t get an automatic get-out-of-heart-disease-free card. (There’s definitely such a thing as vegan junk food.) But a new study that supposedly confirms some plant-based diets are better than others…actually wasn’t comparing plant-based diets to each other at all.Read more… Continue Reading at http://lifehacker.com
