Damn good job there! I highly suggest adding this to a nearby shelf if you don't already have it... Miyoko Schinner's The Homemade Vegan Pantry: The Art of Making Your Own Staples

for eggs, unless you just would miss the taste, depends what you use them for. baking is easy to replace with flax eggs or egg substitutes which i haven't really tried. for scrambles, that's easy -

lots of people like chao cheese, but it's got that processed taste in my opinion. miyoko's vegan cheese is great -

miyoko actually has a book with all sorts of stuff you can make yourself, along with cheese -

there's a whole awesome vegan food world out there :)

I originally got this recipe from The Homemade Vegan Pantry Cookbook (which I highly recommend) but it can also be found here (Unribs). A friend of my husband was visiting when I made these and quickly dismissed them but took a few home for his wife to try. He asked for more the next day! For the BBQ sauce, I just used Annie’s Organic BBQ sauce. We did notice that these taste even better the next day.

I'll throw in another vote for Isa her books are great.

She wrote the Veganomicon. with Terry Hope Romero and it's been one of my favorites since I got it in 2008.

Another favorite of mine is The Homemade Vegan Pantry

I got the dough making technique from a book called The Homemade Vegan Pantry by Miyoko Schinner (

If you are interested in some hardcore vegan cooking, I STRONGLY recommend that book. It's worth the $15. I also used it to culture my own cheddar, and sweet Jesus... just... just trust me on this one.

You do need a pizza stone and a pizza peel for this recipe to work.

The pizza on the right used a sauce I improvised with two cans of tomatoes, two tablespoons of tomato paste, 7 cloves of garlic, half a white onion, a few splashes of balsamic vinegar, a tsp of salt, and a tbps of raw sugar. I just put them in a food processor.

I got the pesto on the left from this recipe here:

Toppings included sliced white mushrooms, marinated artichoke, vegan sausage, fresh basil, and Daiya mozzarella (not much, just a sprinkle). The pesto is so rich, it doesn't need the cheese IMO.

The trick is not to let the dough rise until it hits the oven. What you need to do is put a pizza stone in, and let it warm up with the oven at 500F. After an hour, you can transfer the pizza onto the stone with a pizza peel and leave it in the oven for just 10 minutes.

She has fish sauce in here, along with countless other recipes. If you like to cook from scratch, this book is a must.

A date who can cook a vegan meal? You're going to impress the crap out of her! I'm excited. :-)

If you want to really up your vegan cooking game (pro chef level), this book is what you need. Shows you how to make vegan butter, cheeses, meats, etc from scratch. Includes everything from vegan oyster sauce to vegan white chocolate. Total game-changer.

Your post inspired me to put up this awesome five ingredient tofu recipe over on r/veganrecipes. I'm calling it LPT: Life Pro Tofu as it's the best tofu recipe I've ever seen. The recipe comes from Miyoko Schinner's book and combines tofu with flax seed gel. The results are amazing; for me, truly mind-blowing. Thinking back, it's amazing how far I've come with good tools and recipes. Here's hoping you might gain some inspiration!

u/Sixsixsixties · 3 pointsr/vegan

That’s awesome. Glad you have a good solution, sounds like a rad store! Sort of related- If you haven’t ever made your own yogurt, I strongly recommend it, it blows the store bought stuff away. I usually use Westsoy Original soy milk, normally I like unsweetened but the fermentation cultures like the sugar so I get the original. One of these days very soon, I will try the feta recipe from that book...

You may eventually want to check out Miyoko’s “Homemade Vegan Pantry” cookbook. it came out pretty recently and the recipes seem a little updated, not as many in depth recipes on specific types of cheese but the recipes I’ve used out of there have been stellar and I find that I reach for it more often than the Artisan Cheese book. It really depends on what you’re into making. She includes the recipe for her cultured butter and the ice cream recipe is also perfect.

I highly recommend the recipe for unpork from Miyoko Schinner's 'The Homemade Vegan Pantry'

By far the best results I've gotten from any recipe I've tried.

If you can get your hands on a copy of the book, it's by far the best IMO, when it comes to vegan staples.

u/TofuFace · 3 pointsr/cookingforbeginners

The Homemade Vegan Pantry by Miyoko Schinner:

Vegan, not vegetarian, but there are some amazing recipes for really basic staples in there, like condiments, cheese, milk, stocks and broths, meat substitutes, pasta, breads, crackers, and a few simple desserts. There are also some recipes that build on others, like certain soups and stews, or using leftovers and scraps of one recipe to make something new. It's a beautiful book and everything I've made from it so far has been pretty simple and has tasted wonderful. And it's under $15 on Amazon for the hardcover physical version! I highly recommend it!

u/Sharkaddy · 3 pointsr/Futurology

Miyoko wrote a book on how to make your own staples. Cheese and butter are both in there:

Miyoko Schinner's Homemade Vegan Pantry includes recipes for fancy vegan cheese that may be exactly to your liking. My boyfriend has a cashew allergy so I have not tried making them myself, but everything I have tried so far has been great!

u/nixedreamer · 2 pointsr/vegan

I'm a picky eater too and a new vegan. I feel like 90% of my diet is soy at the moment haha. I find that making alternatives of the foods I liked helps a lot. This book has been amazing the past few weeks. I like it because it shows you how to make staples to use in your diet instead of these crazy recipes that are overwhelming. I made the nuggets in the book the other day and they're super nice and I'm making some of my own mozzarella now!

Also train your taste buds and try new things. We are picky normally because of a mental block that causes us to be repulsed by certain foods and it helps to slowly break it down as much as possible. I personally have made a lot of progress with new foods in the last couple of years.

I hope this helps a little :)

u/lo_dolly_lolita · 2 pointsr/veganrecipes

Depending on where you live, your library might have a bunch. You can check them out, try some recipes, and see if it's one you might want to buy.

I like a lot of international and multi-cultural flavors so I like a wide variety of cookbooks including:

Afro Vegan

Vegan Richa's Indian Kitchen

Chloe's Vegan Italian Kitchen

and a general cookbook that helps you make your own dishes using vegan staples:

The Homemade Vegan Pantry

u/fz-independent · 2 pointsr/vegan

Yeah, I'm really quite disheartened. They aren't pretty (I guess just like real ribs) but they are really tasty. They are from Miyoko Schinner's Homemade Vegan Pantry, but if you can't get the cookbook it is pretty much just a complicated seitan recipe. Make seitan, slice it into steak sized pieces and sear them on each side. Bake them like you normally would for seitan covered with watered down BBQ sauce. Cut into rib-sized pieces, sear on each side again, then toss with more BBQ sauce! The cookbook also notes that they get even better if you let them sit in the sauce for a day or two in the fridge, and thats whats happening in the photo.

I should note that this is one of my all time favourite cookbooks and I really recommend it :)

u/benyqpid · 2 pointsr/vegan

You can make it yourself! As well as a lot of her other stuff. Miyoko Schinner is so great.

u/pineapplesoup7 · 2 pointsr/veganrecipes

Thug Kitchen has some great, easy to make recipes that don't require many "exotic" ingredients. I also use The Homemade Vegan Pantry all the time. It's great for stocking your pantry and fridge rather than spending lots of cash on pre-made stuff. Plus, generally healthier. If you like Italian cooking, I enjoy Vedura (not vegan specific but the recipes are all veggie-centric and generally really simple).

u/katiekiller · 2 pointsr/vegan

Check out the lemon curd/bar recipe in The Homemade Vegan Pantry! It's made with a base of cashew cream, which apparently thickens in the same way eggs do into that glossy, thick curd, without the worry of accidentally scrambling them. I wish I could find a blog post of something to link, it's seriously amazing. Minimalist Baker has some good lemon bars, too, that are cool and creamy - a little less true to a traditional lemon bar, but definitely worth an evening to bake!

u/ckeeks · 2 pointsr/ZeroWaste

/u/hedgehiggle recently recommended a book about making vegan staples (tofu, soy milk, cheese etc). Maybe that would be useful?

u/growun · 2 pointsr/ZeroWaste
  1. Basically rice/quinoa/grain with beans & lentils. Sauteed/roasted veggies on that, too. I make my own seitan, too. As far as butter goes - you can make your own! The Vegan Pantry by Miyoko Schinner is honestly priceless. Has so many homemade recipes for butter, sour cream, etc and always tells you what to do with the "waste" (like the pulp after soymilk).

  2. I have three pairs of shoes, some vegan new balance sneakers my work makes me wear, Dr. Martens, and Sanuk sandals. Also, Zappos lets you search for vegan shoes.

  3. I just prefer to make really thick smoothies. If you use a frozen banana and frozen fruit (I literally buy all the fruit... pineapples, peaches, raspberries, etc) and throw 'em together, it's very good.

  4. Don't wear makeup, found this store that has like 30+ vegan lipsticks in tins. She also ships them in just a paper envelope at your request. Also, Pacifica which is found in more stores (Whole Foods, Target) sells lipsticks with 100% recyclable packaging. Seems they also only source boxes, packaging, etc locally so they aren't ordering the tube from overseas or anything.

  5. Dried fruit, roasted chickpeas, homemade "lara" bars (just processed dates, peanuts, and cocoa powder basically).
u/thistangleofthorns · 2 pointsr/vegan

Miyoko has published 2 books with cheese recipes in them. I bought both books and got them signed AND tried many of the cheeses at her book signing party in NYC a couple months ago.

Artisan Vegan Cheese

The Homemade Vegan Pantry

Many/most of the cheese recipes are made from cashews and other nuts, and require some ingredients most of us have never heard of. I went through and found the recipes I want to try (all of them!) and rounded up all the ingredients (amazon for the obscure stuff).

In the cheese book there are 2 different Mozz recipes, one is meant to be for a fresh mozz type cheese (tried this one at the party, was just like the original and so delicious), and the other is more for melting like on pizza.

So far from the pantry book I have made Squeeze Bottle Yellow Mustard (perfect, but strong!) and the Oil Free Eggless Vegan Mayo. 2/2 both are great.

I had to change my plan about trying one of the mozz recipes today; still have some store bought cheezes I'm trying to use up, also have too much other stuff to do.

I made a vegan gift basket for a friend and her boyfriend this last Christmas and it contained:

u/EpilepticDogs · 2 pointsr/vegan

It takes a bit of skill to get a full "sheet" of it, but this is basically the method I also heard. I've made my own soy milk and failed at grabbing the skin (I think I tried to grab it before it was fully formed). Anyway, I think I tried it from The Homemade Vegan Pantry by Miyoko Schinner. Either there or Asian Tofu by Andrea Nguyen.

u/Photomintie · 1 pointr/Vegetarianism

I got this book for my vegan SIL a couple years ago and recently bought it for myself. It's been great for easing me into veganism

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/ZeroWaste

Make your own! It sucks if you can't find zero waste vital wheat gluten, but you can always look at ordering larger quantities online. Also, it's still far less waste than repeatedly buying the pre-made stuff.

u/neuronbillionaire · 1 pointr/veganketo

I am getting the vegan cheese cookbook, I miss cheese too! It's on sale right now for 1.99 on kindle, just bought it. Super excited!!
