I have been a vegetarian since 1973 so and have worked in vegetarian restaurants. I might become vegan except for 2 reasons - taste and cost. Vegan ice cream is usually pretty good but I find the cost is expensive. Vegan cheese is usually bad tasting with the major exception of Miyoko's cheese. That was just as good as cow cheese. The "cheese" made with nutritional yeast is laughable and not a cheese taste at all. The cheeses made with nuts are not bad tasting but they taste like a sauce or dip and not at all like a cheese. I go to local vegan potlucks because they are very nice people and often have the same values. However, most of the food is not very good. The local vegans are against using any kind of oil in cooking or baking. In cooking you can omit is usually without bad effects but making pastries without oil usually makes things semi edible. I do not want to complain but want to know if people have good recipes for making dairy substitutes that are tasty and as cheap as dairy? Thanks.
