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.

Quick vegan: 5 Minute Fresh Pesto

This recipe is perfect for any occasion and is so versatile. It can be added to salads, pizzas, sandwiches, pastas, burgers, tarts… pretty much anything! We prefer making our own pesto for two reasons. A lot of fresh pestos we have found come in plastic tubs, use an old glass jar to store this in your fridge for up to two weeks. Traditional pesto is made with Parmesan which is made with Rennit, a set of enzymes produced in the stomachs of mammals, usually cows. So, we prefer to reduce our plastic usage and lessen the demand for products with rennit. This recipe does both and is delicious! Continue reading Quick vegan: 5 Minute Fresh Pesto

Recipe: DIY Vegan Granola

This vegan recipe is a crowd pleaser. Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day, so make it exciting! Granola goes perfectly with dairy-free yoghurt and a whole load of fruit dumped on top. But granola can become expensive, especially when exciting flavours are introduced. What people don’t know is that it’s really easy to make and it can save you money making it at home. Plus, you get to choose your own flavour combinations each time you make it! This takes a little while to cook but it is really easy to prep and is a great one to make with the family. Continue reading Recipe: DIY Vegan Granola

Vegan: Easy Chilli sin Carne

Chilli con Carne is a widely loved dish. ‘Con’ meaning ‘with’ we have changed it to Chilli ‘sin’ Carne which means ‘without’. You can have it with rice, in pitta and on top of a jacket potato. You can swap out just a few ingredients and you will have bolognese for your spaghetti. 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! You can find any chilli con carne recipe and swap out the meat for vegan mince which you can find in almost all supermarkets nowadays. But this one is tried and tested by us and is a firm favourite at BBQs at Grace’s house. Continue reading Vegan: Easy Chilli sin Carne
