Since the quarantine began, we’ve all been trying our hand at some homemade dishes. We found ourselves stockpiling our cupboards and, instead of eating out, believing we were the next Chef Gordon Ramsay in our homes when we were encouraged to visit the grocery store less regularly.
Unfortunately, this was not the case. Whether I was following a recipe from my favorite vegan cookbook or just winging it in the kitchen, I have to admit that not all of my cuisines were spectacular (or even edible).
Fortunately, during quarantine, I discovered one tool that has assisted me in becoming the mediocre plant-based chef of my dreams: YouTube!
YouTube videos are phenomenal: you can learn anything from how to fix your hair to how to locate the derivative to how to prepare the ideal vegan dinner for free.
