I learned to cook the same way that many other people learn. I learned by helping my mother cook and eventually learning her recipes. The problem was that she isn’t a vegan or vegetarian. This meant that I only learned how to cook using meat and animal products. When I went vegan, I was completely intimidated by cooking vegan foods. I knew how to cook, sure, but how could I cook without the tools I had been taught to use? I really didn’t have any idea how to cook without using dairy or eggs. So, I started experimenting. I hope that this page helps people learn ways to cook vegan meals, no matter how much experience they have in the kitchen.
