Compassionate Cuisine Recipes

Vegan cooking isn’t about restrictions,
it’s about all the things you CAN eat!

One of the wonderful opportunities in vegan cooking is to focus on the delicious flavors and new taste combinations you can make from vegan ingredients and not worry about what you aren’t eating. People generally find that they become more creative when they go meatless and use many new and different foods that they hadn’t considered when cooking or baking with traditional methods.

As you read these recipes, you’ll find a world of delicious food out there. Step out of your comfort zone and into your kitchen; explore, create and have fun! The animals, environment, and your body will thank you!
