vegan grocery shopping fridge list vegetables

One of the best things about the vegan diet is how much you get to experiment with different vegetables and fruits. It’s how I’ve come to love unusual veggies like yucca, burdoc, garlic scapes, and ramps. But even I don’t always have the time to figure out how to cook taro or kohlrabi, so I rely on these staples to keep my kitchen well-stocked. The items I buy the most often are in bold.
