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. ‘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.

Why this January is the best time to start a plant-based or meat-free diet

We completely understand if Veganuary just isn’t for you, but that doesn’t mean you have to be completely in, or completely out. We also support anyone who wants to reduce their meat and dairy consumption and move towards a plant-based or meat-free diet. As we say, small efforts to change lifestyle become easier and then become habit. And your efforts really can change (or at least contribute hugely) to the state and future of our planet.

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.
