Meat, Eggs And Dairy Substitutes For Recipes

Meat, Eggs And Dairy Substitutes For Recipes

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:

Meat
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.

“I can’t become a vegetarian because I don’t have the time to work up complicated vegetarian meals.”

That is a common misconception about what it means to life the lifestyle of a vegetarian. Oh yes, it is possible to become a fanatic about exotic vegetarian meals or to become so extreme about limiting not only meat but anything but vegetables from your diet that meal planning and preparation has to become the only other thing in your life other than work, school or taking care of your family. But as is true in any area of life, there are the extremes and the fanatics and then there is how the rest of us live.
