Veganism and Ideas to Make its taste Authentic.
What is Veganism?
Veganism is a lifestyle that excludes all animal products and attempts to limit the exploitation of animals as much as possible. People often confuse being a Vegan to the Vegetarian way of eating. Those who chose to be Vegans avoid meat, poultry and seafood, just like vegetarians, but they take this a step ahead by also refraining from consuming dairy products like milk, cream and eggs; honey or any product/by-product derived from animal/animal skin. While most vegetarians would enjoy dishes made using paneer and cream, vegans will depend on other sources of protein which will be non-animal based. Pea Paneer is answer to their restrictive meal planning and a keen attention towards wholesome nutrition which makes a vegan lifestyle possible.
The Secrets to Making Peas Paneer Taste Authentic.
- Enjoy it either pan fried in a salad, grated onto a pizza or cooked into your favourite curry.
Miso Paste, can be helpful in bringing a more authentic flavor to vegan cheese
Dijon Mustard, smooth Dijon mustard is preferable to the whole grain variety. Dijon mustard’s sharp flavor can be especially useful when making vegan cheese.
Lemon Juice, A squeeze of lemon juice brings that slightly sour flavor that you get from dairy-based cheeses.
Garlic and Onion, sautée about a quarter of a minced onion and a few minced garlic cloves and adding it to the ingredients.
Red Bell Pepper, blending red bell pepper into vegan cheeses and cheese sauces enhances flavor. Roast it beforehand to further deepen the flavor!
