Make simple swaps to the meals you already know how to prepare. Of course, when you first go vegan, it’s a good idea to discover some mouthwatering vegan recipes, and get acquainted with the produce department in new ways. However, there are times when you’re in no mood to pull out a cookbook. On those nights, I recommend thinking about the meals you already know how to make. With a few simple swaps, often your day-to-day recipes can easily be made vegan. Replace dairy cheese with avocado or nut-based cheese. Replace meat with beans, tofu, or seitan. Then keep the same seasonings and spices. It’s not hard to turn beef tacos into bean tacos or pepperoni pizza into one with peppers, onions, and mushrooms.
