But many vegetarians and vegans admit that this is a myth – after giving up meat and fish, they discover new products that make the home menu much richer and healthier. The variety of vegan recipes can be a pleasant surprise: not only something simple and familiar but also complex delights are prepared from plant ingredients. To make sure of this, we suggest checking out ten YouTube blogs, in which there are video instructions for vegan dishes, up to pompous New Year’s treats, and more.
