Whether you are a vegan or vegetarian or are cooking for a vegan or vegetarian person, eventually you are going to need to substitute animal products in your recipes or diet. Here is a list of a few easy substitutions you can do in the kitchen:
The best meat substitute out there is tofu. You can use it in many different ways, because you can crumble it, fry it, bake it, grill it, etc. Tofu will take on many flavors just as almost any meat does; you just have to add the sauce you want. It really works well as a cheese substitute (it is also known as soy cheese) but you can even use it to prepare burgers.
