Substitute for Cheese – Soft cheese can be flavored in a number of ways. Instead of cheese we can use raw cashews. These cashews can be pureed and seasoned with water.

Substitute of Egg– Tofu is a great substitute for cream cheese. Hope you liked my homemade vegan cream cheese. This is one method. The other method is that we can crumble sauteed tofu with turmeric. This adds color to it. Yuba a.k.a tofu skin, when wrapped around vegetables such as potatoes etc. taste similar to that of an omelette. My friend had tried this in his last summer grill party.

Substitute for Meat – Mushrooms and porcini make great broths and vegetable stocks. These when coated with smoked paprika and other chili delight, make us forget our affair with the meat. Needless to say they are great replacement for all kinds of meat. Moreover I just love mushroom grills.
