I've just started experimenting with seitan (after finding it at Whole Foods) and it's amazing - the texture is just like meat and there's so much you can do with it. I'm about to share a recipe for pulled "pork" burgers! Cooking

I've recently started eating more vegan food, and there are sooooo many amazing things. The best thing I can recommend is to try different brands and see what works for you. If you haven't tried nutritional yeast, I would recommend using that!

I've posted a few recipes, and hope to make more soon.

This cheesecake is easy and outstanding! You can do just a plain vanilla version if you don't have the matcha: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/matcha-cheesecake/versions/1

Here is a simple 'cheese' sauce: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/vegan-mac-and-cheese

And this is the best vegan mac and cheese recipe. Seriously it's healthy and amazing: https://uk.pinterest.com/pin/434667801516665728/

I'd second Markee R. on the recommendation for nutritional yeast flakes! I use them to make my own 'cheese' and onion crisps (1/2 tsp nutritional yeast and 1/2 tsp dried onion granules shaken into a bag of ready salted crisps!) Happy

I love the new vegan quorn burgers and moo free chocolate, especially the 'bunnycomb' bar and violife vegan cheese.

Violife is amazing! Have you tried the Vego chocolate bars? Those are so good as well.

I don't actually like Vego bars, I know pretty much everyone else does though!

@pineconeprincess hopefully you can get them over there (I just noticed you are based in the States). I'm from California originally, but live in Scotland now. I actually find a lot online these days though, so you might be okay regardless.

There's Daiya cheese and tofutti cream cheese, if you don't feel like making those things. They're just OK. The nutritional yeast is a good suggestion. Peanut sauces are good on spaghetti squash or spiralized vegetables. Tempeh is yummy. You can be lazy and just throw bbq sauce on that and it's good. You can do other stuff with it, too. Put it in Arizona Skillet (google it) for extra protein. You can make cashew parmesan "cheese". Happy Eating! Cooking
