Apple cider vinegar is a wonderful addition to cooking vegan. We’ve put together a list of apple cider vinegar vegan recipes for you to try! They’re easy, delicious, and full of nutrition! But best of all, they’re vegan.

What Is Apple Cider Vinegar?

Apple cider vinegar is basically fermented apple juice. It starts as apple juice and yeast, but according to WebMD, the yeast turns the sugars into alcohol – resulting in the vinegary, fermented beverage known as ACV.

AVC can be consumed plain, like a shot of fermented vinegar. Or it can be added to food to enhance it.

Vegans often use apple cider vinegar in vegan recipes as a substitute for buttermilk. But it can also be used to add acidity and flavor to vegan dishes.

Vegan Buttermilk With Apple Cider Vinegar

To make vegan buttermilk with apple cider vinegar, simply add 1 tablespoon of ACV to 1 cup of non-dairy milk (I prefer soy). Allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes until it thickens. The ACV will begin to curdle the non-dairy milk, creating a vegan buttermilk.

You can use this vegan buttermilk in any recipe that calls for regular buttermilk, or in any recipe where you want a richer, creamier liquid!

Use ACV In Place Of Lemon Juice

You can also use Apple Cider Vinger in recipes that call for lemon juice. If you don’t have lemon juice on hand, you can sub it for some ACV! It’ll add that acid that’s needed from lemon juice, whether that’s for a dressing, soup, sauce, marinade, or anything else.
