One of the features of this blog is going to be my Recipe Reviews. These are where I review the recipes that I make. It is my hope that my journey to find delicious vegan food to make and enjoy will help other people make this journey for themselves. It seems like most people who review vegan recipes are already huge fans of vegan food and have already gotten used to eating this way. Sometimes it’s nice to hear from people who haven’t already acquired the taste for certain vegan foods…like tempeh or nutritional yeast.
I will be reviewing recipes based on four things: Ease of Finding Ingredients, Cheapness of Ingredients, Ease of Following the Recipe, and the Final Results. Recipes can receive up to five points per category for a total of twenty points.
