Veganize It!: Easy DIY Recipes for a Plant-Based Kitchen Overview

Veganize It! is the ultimate DIY pantry book, doing double duty with recipes for vegan staples, plus ideas on how to use them as building blocks in both new and classic recipes.

Many cooks prefer to make their own basics rather than buy expensive store versions, which are often loaded with additives and preservatives. These easy recipes make it easy to stock a home pantry.

Enjoy milk, cheeses, bacon, burgers, sausages, butter, and vegan Worcestershire sauce in your favorite dishes, and then try delicious recipes using the staples.

Sample recipes like:

  • Bahn Mi
  • Sausage Biscuits
  • Meaty-Cheesy Pizza
  • Milk Shakes
  • Jambalaya–even Jerky
  • Lemon Meringue Pie

This will become an indispensable cookbook for vegans and everyone else who enjoys animal-free food.

Editorial Reviews

“…[Robertson] offers easy-to-make, inexpensive vegan alternatives that remain true to the original tastes and textures. Dishes such as bacon-topped ‘mac un-cheese,’ fish-free tacos, and cheesy steak-out sandwiches are appetizing options that readers will relish. Staple recipes go beyond dairy products to include meats, charcuterie, seafood, condiments and sauces, and desserts. This appealing collection provides vegan cooks with the tools they need to create homemade ingredients and enjoy the flavors of classic dishes while still following a plant-based diet.” – Publishers Weekly
