Vegan recipes often use more spice than conventional recipes, since spices are plant-based and a great way to add flavor to a non-meat dish. It can be tricky to cook a full range of recipes under strict limitations, but with a little creativity vegan food can be as delicious and satisfying as any other diet. Note: Some of these recipes call for sugar. While sugar is a plant product, it is often processed with bone char which makes it not vegan. Make sure you use beet sugar or evaporated cane juice for vegan cooking.
