Eating Vegan: Top Ten Kitchen Staples

Sauteed Veggies with Tahini and Sriracha Drizzle

4. Nutritional Yeast

Really, I can’t say enough good things about nutritional yeast. It adds a mild, cheesy flavor to anything, and I use it almost daily. A couple of tablespoons transform steamed veggies or sauteed greens into a delicious treat.

5. Tahini

Tahini is critical in making hummus, but it’s good for so much more than that! You can use it to make sauces creamier or drizzle it on top of beans or veggies to add a protein boost.

6. Sriracha Sauce

No pantry is complete without a good hot sauce, and Sriracha is my fave. I put it on everything savory. Seriously, everything.

7. Garlic

On top of its health benefits, garlic is a key cooking staple. Whether you’re cooking greens, beans, soups, or a veggie roast, a couple of cloves of garlic add a depth of flavor that really takes things to the next level.

    Great post! I just happen to have all of these in my kitchen — with the exception of sriracha (I have a thing for chipotle hot sauces instead). My additionto your list: tempeh. Now that I've learned to steam or boil it a little first, it's versatility and ease of use has made it a great addition to my larder.
