2019 Vegan Spice Guide For Vegan Cooking

2019 Vegan Spice Guide For Vegan Cooking | Herbal Academy | Using this vegan spice guide can add depth and flavor to your vegan meals and open up a whole new world of opportunity to be creative in the kitchen.

Vegan foods can get a bad rap for being bland and tasteless. In the Western world, meat has become a predominant part of every meal. Many people have become so accustomed to the salty, fatty flavor offered by animal protein that they find it difficult to imagine how a person could subsist on a diet of vegetables and legumes alone.

Using a vegan spice guide to add the appropriate spices to a dish can mean the difference between cooking that keeps you coming back for more, and boiled, lifeless veggies in a pot. Not only does it add depth and flavor to vegetables, but using herbs and spices in vegan cooking can also open up a whole new world of opportunity to be creative in the kitchen.

When my partner and I transitioned to a plant-based diet and lifestyle, we stopped eating meat cold-turkey (pun intended). Learning to cook with a variety of herbs and spices from the get-go allowed us to be creative in the kitchen and get to know and understand the types of flavors that went well with the foods we were now eating on a regular basis. We both became familiar with combining spices such as cumin, turmeric, garam masala, ginger, garlic, salt, and pepper, for example, to create a spice blend to cook down with onions to form the base of a curry dish.

Creating A Vegan Spice Guide

One of the first things we did when we went vegan was to prepare a vegan spice guide: a list of the essential spices we would always have in our pantry. We opted for organic spices stored in mason jars for easy cooking. Now, we cannot last long when we run low on cumin, turmeric, or nutritional yeast. Taking the time to develop a vegan spice guide and using it to stock our pantry has been integral to our success in transitioning to plant-based eating and helping us to make some beautiful, healthful meals within the comfort of our home.

It can be overwhelming to know which spices to include in your pantry, especially if you are beginning the journey of home-based vegan cooking. With new vegans in mind, I created this vegan spice guide which will walk you through 8 essential spices which can jazz up any vegan dish.

Turmeric

Turmeric tops the list as one of my favorite herbs in my vegan spice guide. I’ve written a whole post about this beautiful spice. Turmeric is a prominent spice in Indian dishes such as curry and dahl. Turmeric also has many health properties, which make it a must-have in the kitchen. At this point in our vegan journey, we add turmeric to everything. It has a slightly bitter taste; however, it pairs well with other herbs such as ginger, garlic, and cumin.

Cumin

Cumin is one of the most versatile herbs in our pantry, which make it a must-have for my vegan spice guide. Cumin makes a great base for most curries. Use cumin seeds fried on medium with some coconut oil for 30 seconds before adding in diced onion, garlic, and ginger for the beginning of delicious curry. My favorite way to use cumin is in homemade veggie chili. Find how to make your own chili spice blend below.

Chili Spice Blend

[recipe_ingredients]

1 tbsp. ground cumin
1.5 – 2 tbsp. chili powder
½ tbsp. ground coriander
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 pinch smoked paprika
1 tsp salt
Black pepper to taste

[/recipe_ingredients][recipe_directions]

  • Combine herbs together in a bowl and mix well.
  • Store in a labeled, airtight glass jar.

[/recipe_directions]

Add this blend with chopped onions to a large pot until fragrant and then throw in the remainder of the chili ingredients. Another tip to enhance the depth of flavor in chili is to add a tablespoon of dark cocoa powder to the pot of chili along with the chili spice blend featured above.

Mustard Seed

I’ve only recently become accustomed to using mustard seed in my vegan cooking, and now it is a staple in my vegan spice guide. Mustard seed can be toasted using coconut oil similar to cumin seed which lends a deep, earthy flavor to dishes.

My favorite recipe that calls for mustard seed is a take on a traditional ayurvedic dish, kitchari, which you can find here. In this recipe, mustard seeds are toasted along with coriander and cumin seeds until they become fragrant. My favorite part about this recipe is that the mustard seeds dance out of the pot!

Another interesting way to incorporate mustard seeds into your diet is to add them with oil and onion to the bottom of a pot to fry. Then I add in some basmati rice and turmeric, covering the rice with oils from the toasted seeds and onion. After that, I cook the rice as usual. This is a simple way to add some interest, color, and flavor to the rice.

Garlic

Although I prefer to use whole, fresh garlic cloves, it can never hurt to have garlic granules in your pantry for times when you’re in a pinch. Even if you are using garlic cloves, who said you can’t double up? If you’re a garlic lover, you’ll find that this spice becomes a part of your everyday life when you’re cooking plant-based meals.

Recently, my partner cooked a simple, slow-cooked stew in which he incorporated large cloves of fresh garlic and garlic powder. It was delicious! When you are purchasing garlic powder, opt for the granules as opposed to the powder. The powder tends to stick and clump together over time, whereas the granules remain separate.

Smoked Paprika

Before transitioning to a plant-based diet, my only familiarity with paprika was that it was the orange spice sprinkled on top of potato salads or deviled eggs at backyard barbecues. Now, it is a go-to for most recipes. The benefit of paprika is that it lends a smoky flavor to vegan dishes which mimics the savory taste of meat. If it is available where you are, choose smoked paprika over the regular spice.

Garam Masala

Next in the vegan spice guide is the beautiful spice blend, garam masala. While you can make a garam spice blend (ground coriander, cumin, cardamom, cloves, black pepper, cinnamon, and nutmeg),  it can also be easily purchased at your local health food store. Think of this blend as a finisher for curries like chickpea-based chana masala or other Indian dishes that incorporate tomato. Season your curry with garam like you would salt or pepper, just before you serve. Although it is traditionally used as a finishing spice, feel free to add it to mashed chickpea sandwiches with vegan mayo, chopped pickles, and salt and pepper.

Cayenne

Bear with me on this one. Becoming vegan requires a level of openness to trying new foods. While you may be hesitant to venture into the realm of spicy foods, I can assure you that it is worth giving it a shot. Adding just a dash of cayenne to dishes like vegan spaghetti can add a level of brightness your dish might be missing. Build your spice tolerance up over time by adding small increments of the spice into dishes throughout the week. Before long you’ll be putting cayenne on everything.

Salt and Pepper

Although this might seem obvious, salt and pepper are two necessities in the kitchen. Do not be afraid of using a little salt and pepper in your spice blends as they will help to tie all the flavors together. You do not want to go overboard on salt and pepper. However, I have read that seasoning with a little of each of these seasonings at each step of the cooking process can help to meld individual flavors resulting in a more savory and satisfying dish.

Nutritional Yeast

Nutritional yeast, or “nooch,” as it is so fondly referred to in the vegan community, is an indispensable component of any vegan spice guide. Though nutritional yeast is not technically a spice, it has quickly become as familiar to us as ketchup in a 1980’s refrigerator. We keep a jar of nutritional yeast on our kitchen table at all times. We use it as a seasoning as we would apply salt and pepper. Sprinkle it over everything from salad to noodles, pasta, and curry. It adds an “umami” flavor which vegans often miss out on when they stop eating rich foods like cheese. Nutritional yeast also forms the basis of many vegan “cheese” sauces and can be used to make a delicious baked mac and cheese.

Becoming vegan has added excitement to my time spent in the kitchen. Plant-based foods are often critiqued as being boring or flavorless, but I can tell you that if you begin to experiment with some of the spices in this vegan spice guide, you will find that vegan cooking is anything but dull.

How To Stock A Vegan Pantry

How To Stock a Vegan Pantry | Herbal Academy | Are you just beginning a plant-based journey towards a vegan diet? Here's a basic list of foods to help you stock a vegan pantry!

Just over a year ago, after watching a few documentaries, my partner approached me and suggested we embrace a plant-based lifestyle. The more we weighed the health benefits, ethical implications, and environmental impacts of choosing to eat only plants, the more we were convinced that a vegan diet was a sustainable option for us.

The first step in our transition towards eating plant-based foods was to fully stock a vegan pantry as we knew that we could not rely only on pastas, breads, and cereals to gain a full nutrient-rich diet—a mistake many new vegans make.

Plant-Based Home Cooking

Cooking with only plant-based foods is not as difficult as it seems—it simply takes some time to learn new techniques and embrace a new world full of flavors. However, in order to explore new eating habits, it is essential to have ingredients on hand in order to avoid those desperate “there is nothing to eat!” moments. While adjusting takes some time and learning, a plant-based diet becomes more than just a change in what’s on your plate—it becomes a lifestyle.

If you are interested in exploring the vegan life, there are some essentials you will require for your vegan pantry. Once you have these basics, a quick run to the local produce mart will have you ready to cook up a storm. Eating a plant-based diet can be quite cost-effective, especially if you buy in bulk and cook at home. So stock up on those cans of chickpeas and bulk spices!  

Whether you are new to a full-on plant-based lifestyle or you want to slowly integrate more vegan whole foods into your diet, these are the pantry necessities which will go a long way in sustaining your new habit. The following is a list of some of the necessities we always have stocked in our cupboards and while it is not exhaustive, I find these are the items we use most frequently.

Vegan Pantry Basics: From Cans and Dried Goods to Vinegars and Wines

There are few things that beat the feeling of creating a delicious meal from what you have on hand at home. Whether your pantry is fully stocked and you choose to draw on a recipe for inspiration, or you have little available and you concoct something from nothing—the act of creativity involved in cooking is a special process all its own.

When it comes to stocking your pantry, there are many options, however, here we will begin with a list of the canned and other dried goods that we keep on hand in our cupboards.

How To Stock a Vegan Pantry | Herbal Academy | Are you just beginning a plant-based journey towards a vegan diet? Here's a basic list of foods to help you stock a vegan pantry!

Grains

One of the things I have learned as a veggie eater is that to truly create a delicious dish, it is important to construct layered meals. For example, you might choose to create a Buddha bowl with massaged kale and rice as the base followed by some roasted sweet potato and chickpeas topped with hummus! Rice and other grains, such as quinoa, are perfect for these types of meals, which become as commonplace as sandwiches when you’re vegan.

Canned Goods

Since the beginning of our vegan adventure, I do not think a week has gone by where we haven’t had some kind of bean or legume in our pantry or in our bellies. Beans and legumes are the foundation of many a great vegan meal and an essential in any plant-based pantry. Curries, salads, roasted vegetable combinations, hummus and other bean dips, burritos, and falafel all begin with a base of beans of some kind, not to mention that they are an excellent source of protein. Be certain to keep at least a few cans of chickpeas, black beans, cannellini, and kidney beans on hand in your vegan pantry. I have recently been experimenting with canned lentils, which can also be a great addition to the top of a salad. (Note that while we prefer to purchase canned goods for the sheer convenience, you can also buy dried bulk goods such as chickpeas, beans, lentils, and split peas to cook in big batches and freeze for use when needed, saving money in the process!)

Canned tomatoes are another go-to ingredient in our house. They form the basis of an amazing spaghetti sauce with added chickpeas and veggies, or they can be added to a curry to bulk it up and provide some flavor. We tend to keep a variety of diced, pureed, and chopped tomatoes in our vegan pantry. Regardless of what you choose to use them for I would recommend stocking up at the grocery store when they are on sale!

Coconut milk is integral to a plant-based diet, and is a staple in the vegan pantry. When we began our journey, we heavily relied on curries because you can basically put any kind of veggie into the dish with some spices and coconut milk, and you have yourself a well-rounded meal. Now that we are beginning to explore a little more, we have since used coconut milk as an alternative to whipped cream, and I continue to perfect a homemade vegan coconut yogurt. The possibilities are literally endless with this ingredient, and it provides high-fat content for those who are trying to maintain or put on weight. Vegetable broth is also a necessity in the vegan pantry. You may choose to make your own using leftover veggie discards, or purchase it at the supermarket.

Nuts & Seeds

In addition to grains, you’ll want to gather some nuts and seeds to keep in your vegan pantry. I tend to keep sesame, sunflower, flax, and chia seeds available in addition to hemp hearts, while my partner prefers nuts such as almonds, walnuts, and peanuts for snacking. Seeds are particularly yummy on salads while nuts are good on top of vegan yogurt or simply on their own. Flax seed mixed with water can also act as a binding agent, taking the place of eggs in baked goods. Nuts can also be used to make nut milks such as almond and cashew milk.

Oils, Vinegars, And Wines

Up next in the vegan pantry is a variety of oils. Oils form the foundation of many plant-based meals; however, there are those who choose to not use any oil at all. We have not ventured to that point yet so we always have a selection of canola oil (which we don’t use regularly because it is often genetically modified), organic coconut oil, and organic olive oil. We sometimes have sesame oil in the pantry as well when we want that savory nutty flavor to incorporate into a stir-fry. In addition to oils, vinegars are important as they can be used for salad dressings, gravies, and other types of sauces which will amp up the flavor profile of your dishes. You can even make your own herbal vinegars to incorporate not only a splash of zesty vinegar but also the vibrant flavor and benefits of herbs! We tend to carry balsamic vinegar, apple cider vinegar, and red wine vinegar on a regular basis. We do not use vinegar as frequently as the other ingredients mentioned, but they are staples nonetheless. It is also helpful to have a good white or red cooking wine in the refrigerator for sauces as well.

Vegan Pantry Basics: The Spice Drawer

I have a whole section in my kitchen dedicated to herbs and spices. Going to the bulk store, purchasing colorful and flavorful herbs and spices, and putting them in mason jars for storage has become a ritual in our household. Because the key to sustaining an interesting vegan diet is to be creative about the food you prepare, it is important to embrace the spice! Having an arsenal of herbs and spices at the ready will be the difference between cooking interesting meals at home or relying on pre-made meat alternatives, carbohydrates, or ordering take out.

I love to keep fresh herbs in my kitchen garden; however, sometimes recipes call for dried herbs, and as much as I love plants, the dried options tend to be more accessible and long-lasting. Classic herbs such as basil, oregano, rosemary, and thyme are definite must-haves in the pantry. I have come to appreciate the heady, licorice flavor of tarragon as it lends a density to stews and soups. Mint and dill lighten a dish by providing a fresh, summery flavor.

Additionally, now that I have to fine tune my curry making abilities, we always have the ingredients available to concoct a quick spice blend. Cayenne, cumin, cinnamon, ground coriander, garam masala, turmeric, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper form the basis of many a curry. There is something so satisfying about witnessing the colorful powders blend together in a pinch pot. You might want to get started with these 5 herbal spice blends to make and use!

Last, but certainly not least, nutritional yeast (or nooch as we vegans call it) is a mainstay in our spice drawer. A variety of yeast unlike brewer’s yeast, nooch, replicates the ‘umami’ flavor of cheeses and mushrooms. If you think you’re missing that creamy, rich flavor of cheese, nutritional yeast can help with that. There are all kinds of recipes for cheese sauces and seasonings made with nooch. Sometimes I simply sprinkle some on top of my soup or chili for an added cheesy flavor. The savory taste of nooch is hard to describe, but once you try it, I guarantee you won’t go back.

While I was somewhat daunted by a vegan pantry list like this when we first began our journey, it became an enjoyable adventure which I learned to embrace. We took things one at a time and eventually got into the groove of cooking regularly at home and building our pantry with each shopping trip.

Vegan Herb And Veggie Stew

Vegan Herb and Veggie Stew | Herbal Academy | Nothing says warming and comforting like a big bowl of stew! Your family will love this hearty and nutritious Vegan Herb and Veggie Stew!

Because nothing says warming and comforting winter foods quite like a big, hearty bowl of stew. Yes, even vegan herb and veggie stew!

This plant-based soup is nutrient dense and loaded with beans, kale, herbs, and other seasonal winter veggies that will make any belly happy—especially after a long day of trekking around in the snow!

Not only is it delicious, but it provides nourishment in multiple forms. The beans provide a large dose of vegan protein, while the potatoes contain high amounts of potassium and fiber. Fresh parsley is known to have health-supporting and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as being high in iron. And of course, the kale is a nutritional powerhouse, loading the stew with vitamins A, C and K, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium.

However, the star ingredient of this recipe might be the lesser known nutritional yeast. It’s an extremely important staple for vegans and vegetarians to incorporate into their diet as it’s difficult to find other plant-based sources of vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is crucial for optimal brain, bone, and nerve health. Nutritional yeast provides your daily required amount of B12 is just one tablespoon along with trace amounts of protein, zinc, and folate. It gives dishes a nutty, “cheesy” flavor and is a great addition to soups, sauces, pasta dishes, casseroles, or lasagnas as a Parmesan replacement. It gives this particular stew a cheesy, creamy consistency that really amps up the flavor factor.
