If you’re an avid baker or chef, chances are you’ve come across recipes calling for buttermilk. Since you’re coincidentally vegan (or cooking for someone who is), this may stump you. It seems like you’re destined to never try the recipe. After all, vegan buttermilk sounds like the ultimate oxymoron.
But believe it or not, it’s one of the easiest things to veganise!
Vegan buttermilk: all the fun of buttermilk with none of the guilt!
- 1 cup non-dairy milk
- 1 tbsp vinegar
In a medium-large bowl, whisk milk and vinegar.
Allow to sit for 5--10 minutes before use.
That’s it! What’s easier than one-step preparation?
How does it work?
The vinegar curdles the milk ever-so-slightly, thickening it. By mixing together, even the flavour is can’t-believe-it’s-not-buttermilk!
Now, go make some easy vegan pancakes, biscuits, or whatever you’ve been avoiding because it calls for buttermilk. You’ve finally found a way to veganise your favourite buttermilk recipe! The world is your (vegan) oyster!
