The new vegan condiments are great for vegetarians, but they’re not always vegan-friendly.
That’s because they contain animal ingredients and can contain potentially harmful chemicals that have to be avoided, and some can be harmful if eaten in large amounts.
So, to get the best bang for your buck, here’s how to get vegan condiment recipes that are vegan-safe, and vegan-rich.
Vegetarian and Vegan Condiment Recipes You’ll Need Ingredients 1 can (1 cup) coconut milk 1 teaspoon sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 tablespoon vegan shortening 1 tablespoon vinegar 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (1 1/2 cups) Vegetable condiments 1/3 cup coconut milk, plus more for garnish 2 cups cooked spinach, plus extra for garnishes 1/8 cup organic black olives, plus 2 tablespoons for garnishment Directions Place the coconut milk in a saucepan and heat over medium heat until it is simmering.
Add the sugar and salt and cook, stirring constantly, for a minute or so, until the sugar dissolves.
Add in the vegetable oil, vegan shortener, and vinegar and stir until combined.
Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium-low, stirring frequently.
Reduce heat to low and cook for 2 minutes, stirring every few minutes.
Add more vegetable oil and vegan shorteners, if necessary.
Simmer until the condiments have absorbed the liquid, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Garnish with vegan shortings and olive oil.
Recipe Notes Use a blender to make vegan shortbread crumbs, if you don’t have one.
I’ve found that homemade vegan shortcakes with a nice soft crumb coat are good.
To make vegan margarine, combine the margarine with 2 tablespoons of the vegan shorting.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
