Homemade Vegan Pantry Overview

The Homemade Vegan Pantry: The Art of Making Your Own Staples is a guide to creating vegan versions of staple ingredients to stock the fridge and pantry. From dairy and meat substitutes such as vegan yogurt, butter, mayo, bacon, and cheese, to mustards, dressings, pancake mix, crackers, pasta sauces, cookies, and more.

Kitchen crafters know the pleasure of making their own staples and specialty foods. Whether it’s cultured sour cream or a stellar soup stock you’ll find it here. It’s a fresher, healthier approach to eating and living. Now vegans who are sick of buying over-processed, over-packaged products can finally join the homemade revolution.

Studded with full-color photos, The Homemade Vegan Pantry celebrates handcrafted foods that don’t take a ton of time. Miyoko Schinner guides readers through the techniques for making French-style buttercreams, roasted tomatoes, and pasta without special equipment. Her easy methods make “slow food” fast, and full of flavor.
