    What do vegans and vegetarians think about cultured meat?

    Currently, several studies investigate people's perceptions of cultivated meat in various countries. However, there are no studies yet that emphasize the opinions of vegans and vegetarians, a group that is genuinely seeking protein alternatives beyond meat for their daily meals. In this...

    Recipe Creamy Black Garlic Sauce

    This is a simple non-dairy sauce of my own devising to maximise the flavour of black garlic. So what is black garlic? Black garlic is aged garlic. It changes over time to a sweet velvety texture that is spreadable. It loses the pungent fresh garlic taste and smell and instead takes on a...

    Vegan Nutella

    I was interested to read that dairy free version of Nutella is soon to be launched in Europe. It is one of the things I've missed not being able to eat dairy. Fererro Roche are another! Vegan Nutella spread is launching in Europe this year - here's what we know so far

    Recipe Broccoli and Tahini Soup

    You need to use a tahini that you like with this soup. There's no point in using a bitter tahini you dislike because the tahini is prominent in taste. Also this soup is great for using broccoli stems up. Just peel them if they are thick and tough. The blender will deal with most of the stem...

    Recipe Sweet Chestnut & Spinach Cannelloni

    So the cream cheese challenge. A bit of a problem when you're both dieting and watching your fat intake, particularly saturated fats. I used my Vitamix Blender for this, but if you're not dairy free, or don't have a suitable blender you could use so bought cream cheese. I had previously...

    How do you make cream cheese (including vegan)?

    [Mod.Edit: This and following few posts have moved here to form a new thread (MG)] Very much hoping to bog off some jobs and get to making that cream cheese today! Does anyone know (SatNavSaysStraightOn) what vegan milks make good cream cheese? They need to be nut free due to allergies.

    Recipe Vegan banh mi sandwich

    I really love this recipe for vegan banh mi. It does take a bit of prep time, but once everything is ready, it comes together quickly. I like to make the pickled veggies and marinate the tofu on the weekend, and then during the week I pull out a couple slabs of tofu at a time and pan-fry them...

    Aldi Vegan Range

    For all the UK based vegetarians and vegans out there, I continue to impressed by the Aldi "Plant Menu" range. We're yet to try something that's less than OK, with most being really tasty. I can definitely recommend the Crispy Battered No Beef Strips and Battered No Chicken Balls plus the...

    Recipe Tofu baked in Peanut Butter, Yoghurt and Chilli Sauce

    I've been on the hunt for a peanut butter based sauce for tofu that didn't use soy sauce/tamari/coconut aminos which all contain high levels of sodium which I need to avoid at the moment. I came across one sauce that didn't have the above but the crispy coating for the tofu had it in it...

    Recipe Sweet Chilli Tofu with Basmati Rice

    My preference is to use previously frozen extra firm tofu, that's been defrosted and well drained. I find that the structure of tofu changes after freezing and you can get a lot more liquid out of the tofu. I also find it easier to throw the cubed tofu into my airfryer to crisp up. If you don't...

    Recipe Lazy vegan stovetop mac and “cheese”

    This recipe is almost embarrassingly easy - it’s hardly even a real recipe, but it’s become one of my go-to for a quick, simple, vegan lunch that uses ingredients I almost always have on hand. Ingredients: 1 cup dry pasta (I usually use fusilli or whatever I’ve got on hand) 2 tbsp nutritional...

    Recipe Vegan Spam Musubi

    Apparently, so I'm informed, this is a great snack for when you're craving something savoury without the mystery meat content of SPAM. Honestly, I've no idea if it is or not, I've never had spam or anything even vaguely similar. The tofu was salty, the rice was slightly sweet and i think my...

    Recipe Vanilla & Strawberry Mayonnaise Fairy/Cup Cakes

    You must have guessed it was coming? Yeah, I know. I need more practice. The batter was a tad to thick by about 25-50ml of soy milk. But the sponge is deliciously light and fluffy. So.... this makes 12 (ish) I used the bung it all in the food processor approach.... the mayonnaise was the...

    Recipe Egg-free Mayonnaise

    So after my hubby came home with smoky vegan mayo instead of vegan mayonnaise, I was left needing to improvise and find up ways of using the stuff he bought. So first steps first. An egg-free mayonnaise. This has actually meant I've needed to get out my immersion blender. It also meant I've...
