Monica is the recipe developer, writer, and photographer for The Hidden Veggies Blog. She created the blog to share her culinary expertise with her readers, offering a wide array of recipes, tips, and tricks. The Hidden Veggies Blog features everyday comfort foods that Monica's family loves, and she has spent years perfecting each recipe to ensure that her readers have success in the kitchen.
Monica has always been passionate about inventing new recipes and getting creative in the kitchen. She has been a vegan since January 1, 2000, and she admits that it was challenging to transition to a vegan diet at first. However, instead of giving up on veganism, Monica learned to create vegan versions of the comfort foods she grew up eating.
Despite the availability of vegan products nowadays, Monica prefers to use her homemade vegan staples such as butter, cheese, ranch dressing, sausage, burgers, and more. Not only do they taste better, but they are also preservative-free, reduce packaging waste, and save her family a considerable amount of money.
