In a plant-based lifestyle, there are quite a few things that I would consider Vegan Essentials. Items you used to be able to just pick up from the store and would always have in your pantry or refrigerator.
Sauces. Dips. Mixes. Things you just wouldn't think about - well, until you miss it.
Vegan Sauces and Condiments
I don't know about you, but one of the hardest parts of going vegan is being able to easily dress a salad or slather sauce on your sandwich. It's not as easy as grabbing a bottle of Ranch dressing or Mayo from the fridge anymore. But it can be with recipes like my Vegan Ranch or Vegan Mayo. Always have a jar of those in the fridge so you won't be caught with a lackluster salad or sammie. My vegan cheese sauce is another vegan essential that can perk up the most boring salads, smother any burrito, or act as the best chip dip you've ever had since going vegan!
Vegan Packaged Goods
It used to be so easy to pick up a container of whipped cream or yogurt. And to top your hot chocolate with big fluffy marshmallows. Again, these are things you often don't think about missing out on, but I've got you covered with my all-time favorite Vegan Marshmallow Recipe to satisfy all your cocoa and s'mores needs. And it's never been easier to make a batch of homemade vegan yogurt with this recipe.
Browse through the list of Vegan Essentials, and you'll see that there's really no need for you to miss out, cause I've got you taken care of!
