|Introduction||Hortamatic exists because Vegomatic was taken.
But there are other reasons. I’ve spent quite a lot of time in the kitchen, experimenting with making traditional recipes I liked vegan, sometimes using cookbooks like Vegan Lunchbox or Veganomicon. Other times I made simple substitutions.
I’ve made cakes, pot roast, cookies, omelets, tamales, pies, scrambles, pancakes, and a whole host of foods that have made my pants feel smaller and my mouth say, “Maybe they shrunk in the dryer?”
Beyond pants, the results have been largely successful, and the typical response has been: “Oh, you don’t need [insert animal product here]!”
On my last tour, it occurred to me that becoming vegan was not a subtraction, but an addition problem. Since the transition to veganism, I cannot count how many new and interesting food combinations I have enjoyed (1,254).
My hope is to bring you the true freedom that is vegan cooking. Send me your conversion request, however crazy it may seem, and I just might post the results. I can be reached at hortamatic AT gmail DOT com.
