My husband raised a valid point. There are certain things that are always available in my kitchen so that I can start creating whenever I get the bug so I have to decided to create a list. Before you read this list I would like to take a moment to explain a few things. I love the idea of fresh vegetables and taking dried beans and preparing them myself but it is not always practical with my life style. Being a wife, mom, working 50 hours a week and trying to have a life make it much for convenient to keep canned beans and frozen vegetables on hand. Please don’t let that sway you from any of the recipes, they will taste even better with fresher ingredients.
Here’s the list which I will add to as I remember:
vegan butter substitute
Egg Replacers: Ener-g egg replacer, applesauce, chia seeds, flax meal
Himalayan Pink salt
Oils- olive & sunflower
Vinegars: apple cider, white, balsamic, red wine… you can’t go wrong with vinegar
Liquid smoke or smoked paprika
Tamari or soy sauce
Braggs Amino Acids
Miso (I prefer yellow or white)
Tomato Paste (I buy in a tube)
Syrup: maple or coconut
Spices: Cumin, garlic powder, oregano, dried basil,
Fresh Garlic and shallots
Baking soda and powder
Hot Sauce: I like a variety
Vegan Cream Cheese
Vegan sour Cream
Frozen: Peas, spinach, pineapple
Fresh Veggies: Spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, bell peppers, onions (red & yellow)
Beans (canned or dried): Garbanzo, black, pinto, kidney, white
Nuts: a variety
vegan chocolate chips (dark or white)
Very valid, pithy, sucincct, and on point. WD.
What a great list. Simple, readily available ingredients! Perfect!
Thanks! I really need to update it!

Thanks Kelley! I’ve been meaning to get on to update this list, maybe this will motivate me. 🙂
