Cashews – They give recipes a creamy, milky texture. sauce and cheese recipes. We blend these into our homemade pesto and use handfuls in our vegan mac and cheese (recipes to come soon…).
Garbanzo Beans (or chickpeas) – We get these for our homemade hummus and mix them with Quinoa to give our dishes some bulk. They have a wonderful chestnut flavor. We usually have a few cans of these around, but you can also get them in bulk food section.
What are some of your whole food staples?
yay for vegan eating!!!! My staple is avocado – in everything, by itself, in smoothies.. etc. Can't get enough!
