Hello Meaty Vegan Nachos! Perhaps one of the best skills to develop as a new vegan is the skill of veganizing old favorites. Since becoming vegan in 2011 that has been one of my favorite things to do in the kitchen. If you’ve ever heard me talk about my first year as a vegan, you’ve probably heard my story about how disappointed I was that I could no longer eat my Nana’s cooking when I went home for the holidays. I was devastated. So I set out to veganize all of the soul food classics I had loved so much growing up, and my cookbook was born.
You really can veganize anything. I’ve made vegan brisket using seitan for a Hanukkah party, vegan fried chicken using cauliflower, and I’ve even seen vegan sushi made with tomato to replicate raw fish!
