This basic white sauce is incredibly versatile. Use it anyplace you would use a Bechamel in non-vegan cooking, and spice it up in any way you'd like!

Cabbage is cheap, and, as such, we toss a head into our shopping cart a couple of times a month. We often shred it and toss it with vinaigrette, but this braised variety is a welcome break from raw slaws.

Vegan Black Bean-Chipotle Sausage
(no ratings)

The Post Punk Kitchen blog has shared some incredible basic recipes for vegan "sausage." Once you learn the technique, you can, as I have, create any kind of sausage you like. This is a stand-in for chorizo or seasoned taco meat.

This tofu sour cream recipe is quite versatile. Add 2 cloves of minced garlic and cut the lemon juice in half for aioli, a teaspoon of sriracha for a spicy "mayo," or any combination of fresh herbs.

This "pasta" dish is so light and yet rich--you'll never guess the "cream" is made from sunflower seeds. The white beans add buttery flavor and protein. Make this when the garden overflows with tomatoes, basil and zucchini.

Sweet and Spicy Nuts
Very Good 4.4/5

These are addictive. They're sweet, salty, spicy, and crunchy. Cut back on the sriracha/chili flakes to tame these fiery nuts. Use smoked (not hot or sweet) paprika.

I love toasted buckwheat. It has a nutty, slightly sour taste that pairs well with oats, sweet dried fruit, and maple syrup. Add nuts for protein and crunch.
