Author: Nicole Axworthy + Lisa Pitman · Subject: Cookbooks


DIY Vegan: More Than 100 Easy Recipes to Create an Awesome Plant-Based Pantry shows readers how easy it is to make their own vegan pantry staples at home.

Using easy-to-find, whole food ingredients that amp up flavors and nutrition, they’ve created over one hundred recipes that will stock pantry shelves, refrigerators and freezers: vegan milks, ice creams and butters made from a variety of nuts and seeds, home-ground flours, yummy sauces and spreads, snack foods (including a recipe for incredibly delicious vegan Pop Tarts) and an array of artisanal make-them-yourself cheeses.

There’s even a recipe for that beloved orange cheese sauce that coats everyone’s favorite boxed mac and cheese! All of the recipes are vegan and have gluten-free options and some are from their list of raw food favorites.

Whether you are vegan, vegetarian or someone just wanting to kick the packaged-food habit, DIY Vegan will show you how to create an awesome, more compassionate kitchen powered by a pantry filled with healthy, homemade, plant-based staples.
