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!

Recipe: Warming Vegan Cottage Pie

Many of us have grown up with a menu heavily influenced by animal produce. Now there is such a variety of meat substitutes we are able to eat the same meals either as a vegetarian or a vegan. This Cottage Pie is a great example of a meal where the flavours are still strong, warming and comforting, without eating any animal produce. We make efforts to change the way we think about food, both where it comes from and how it’s produced. If you can still feel like you’re eating what you want to, or what you’re used to, its much easier to enjoy a diet with reduced animal produce.
