Quick vegan: Harissa squash hummus

We are turning the flavour up with our butternut squash and harissa hummus. This is healthy, spicy and perfect for picnics, pre-dinner snacks and parties. Put it in wraps, burgers or just have with piping hot pitta.

Quick vegan: The best guacamole

It is hard to not be in the mood for guac and tortilla chips. Guacamole is often sold in plastic tubs which cannot be recycled in some areas, or are not washed after use and contaminate a whole recycling batch. Forget the plastic and make your own guacamole at home. It can be made in less than 10 minutes (and eaten in five!) so is great for making as soon as your guests arrive or just before you press 'play' at a movie night.

Vegan: Easy Chilli sin Carne

Chilli con Carne is a widely loved dish. It's a great dish to have up your sleeve and is a really simple one pot dish. It is even better when its vegan, which our recipe is! This one is tried and tested by us and is a firm favourite at BBQs at Grace's house.

How to make Tofu tasty

Tofu has taken the vegan scene by storm. It is everywhere. In BBQ, Indian, Chinese cuisines just to name a few. It is fried, boiled, baked and crumbled. But it is also very scary to try to cook at home. Many of you may have tried and failed miserably, including myself. BUT, we have a guide to ensure this never happens again.
