This post is for all of you, who either have been vegan for only a short amount of time, aren’t vegan at all but interested in vegan cooking, or just people looking to change things up in the kitchen. I’ve included my favorite secret ingredients that I use in the kitchen to make food taste awesome: Kala Namak, Liquid Smoke and Nutritional Yeast.
The hardest part, when I went vegan about 4 years ago, was probably getting a knowledge about which ingredients were safe to use (so many hidden un-vegan ingredients in products you wouldn’t expect them!) and which ingredients I could swap for vegan ones, but after weeks, months and years of acquainting oneself with vegan cooking you’ll get a feeling about which key ingredients you can use to make food taste like you remember it.

Do you know and use all of these key ingredients? Can you think of any other important ingredients that shouldn’t be missed in a vegan kitchen? Let me know in the comments!
