How to make vegan junk food according to Youtubers 'hot for food'

“Going vegan is abundant, fun, tasty, and satisfying. And I will prove it to you,” says cook Lauren Toyota, who with her partner John Diemer is on a mission to obliterate any excuses people might have for not leading plant-based lifestyles.

On their Youtube channel 'hot for food', which has over 200,000 subscribers, the couple have rustled up vegan versions of comfort foods from batter-coated cauliflower chicken wings with a spicy sauce, bacon using liquid smoke and the cassava plant, and peanut butter cups made from dark chocolate.

OK, those recipes might not sounds particularly appetising to a devout omnivore, but the YouTube comments below their videos speak for themselves.

“I'm not even vegan but I love your channel ,” wrote one user under the cauliflower wings recipe.“I made these for my family and they were shocked that I had actually cooked something that was so good, they praised me for it all night,” wrote another.

Toyota admits that when she first went vegan in 2010 she did crave meat and dairy, but after a while that feeling subsided.

“I honestly don’t crave non-vegan foods. I often crave vegan versions of those foods. I crave vegan chicken, vegan cookies, vegan ice cream, vegan jerky. I don’t want to eat the versions with dairy, eggs, or meat at all.

So, what’s the secret to making vegan food not only delicious, but better than the “normal” version?

“Sauce and or fat,” Lauren Toyota tells The Independent. “Fat doesn’t mean only oil either. It could be avocado, tahini or nut butter or nuts and seeds. It’s a must. Fat is flavour and I'm so bored of the fat-free movement. Fat is not the enemy.

“And sauce up your food. I love making sauces. They’re the easiest thing to make at home from ingredients in your pantry and you can store them for the week to put on everything.”

I like the Vegan Zombie channel. They literally make everything you can think of, except for maybe vegan roladen (I could honestly only find something resembling the real roladen my mom makes on a German-speaking channel) ...but yeah just about everything else. The baked shells and cheese they did are so good an omni acquaintance of mine couldn't tell the difference.

Be careful on vegan YouTube though there are some
damn crazy people there. Jeff Nelson tried to sue a bunch of people for criticizing him. I was one of them, just for making comments, and his lawyers had to drop the case. I don't know if Google, YouTube or a judge told Jeff how absurd his actions were, but ye gods.
