A plant-based diet can be as simple or as fancy and exotic as you’d like it to be.
Equipment and Appliances
There’s no doubt, kitchen appliances like high-speed blenders, juicers, food processors, stand mixers, and food dehydrators will open more doors for meals, snacks, accompaniments and drinks you can make.
If affordability and kitchen space permits, we recommend getting the appliances and tools that’ll let you prepare your most favorite meals.
But many of these appliances aren’t strictly necessary for enjoying a plant-based diet.
You can accomplish wonders with just the basic tools:
- Decent knives and cutting boards
- Small, medium and large pots and pans
- Pressure or slow cooker
- Small and large bowls
