I'm open for anything - soups, casseroles, breads, dishes of any kind! My boyfriend and I are new to veganism, but not new to being poor hah, but I'm kind of at a loss as to what to do with all these dried goods. All of my recipe books involve some sort of meat, and my vegan/vegetarian cookbook calls for a lot of exotic spices and foods I just can't find or can't afford. If anyone can recommend some decent spices to invest in I'd be very very grateful. I have the typical stock of kitchen spices, but it's geared more towards baking than cooking.
