Must-Have Vegan Kitchen Tools & Essentials!
Vegan cooking differs a little from traditional cooking. There are definitely certain appliances I find that I need or use a lot now, but didn’t before I went vegan. Same goes for tools, pantry items, and other things you might find in the kitchen.
Even before I was vegan, I found it important to reduce waste in the kitchen and use environmentally-friendly kitchen tools. Going vegan only magnified those concerns of mine because if it’s bad for the earth, it’s bad for living creatures, as well. That’s why kitchen items like silicone baking mats are essential in my vegan kitchen.
There are also a bunch of ingredients I have on hand that I never thought twice about before. Nutritional yeast being the main one – I go through SO MUCH nutritional yeast! Finding vegan versions of my favorite pantry staples was also a game changer. I had no idea anchovies was an ingredient in worcestershire sauce, but thankfully I have found a couple brands that are fish-free. Veggie bouillon is another ingredient I use nearly every day.
I compiled a list of all of my must-have vegan kitchen essentials from tools to pantry staples to help any beginner vegans out there with the transition.
