Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of any product created by or obtained from any living creature.
Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, and an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals. A follower of the diet or the philosophy is known as a vegan. Distinctions may be made between several categories of veganism. Dietary vegans refrain from consuming animal products, not only meat but also eggs, dairy products and other animal-derived substances. The term ethical vegan is often applied to those who not only follow a vegan diet but extend the philosophy into other areas of their lives, and oppose the use of animals for any purpose. Another term is environmental veganism, which refers to the avoidance of animal products on the premise that the industrial farming of animals is environmentally damaging and unsustainable. Interest in veganism increased in the 2010s, especially in the latter half. More vegan stores opened and vegan options became increasingly available in supermarkets and restaurants in many countries.

    Keema is an Indian curry traditionally made with minced meat (often mutton or goat). This vegan version uses soya granules in place of meat. Sometimes peas are added and indeed you could add some frozen peas to this recipe if you like. Add them a few minutes before the end of cooking. The whole...

    Recipe Banana Peel pulled pork

    I know what you're thinking. She's totally lost it, completely, utterly bonkers... You know I hate waste. I use as much of a vegetable or fruit as possible, but banana peel along with coffee grinds constitute at least ⅓ of my composting and hubby hates cutting up his banana peel. So I was...

    Recipe Vegan pulled pork

    Jackfruit makes a surprisingly good vegan alternative to pulled pork. I've made it once before in a bbq style, but I used this recipe for a tex-mex lunch party. It's based on a recipe from Feasting at Home. When making pulled jackfruit, the trick is to make sure the jackfruit is as dry as...

    Recipe Lemon or Lime Jelly

    I first made this a few months ago but found the taste not quite to my liking, my lemons are sweet and frankly diluting the juice by the volume suggested in the original recipe (Lemon jelly, classic and strong version! Vegan and gluten free!) left the lemon taste quite vague, so I thought I'd...

    Recipe Zesty Lime & Pistachio Tarts

    So, yeah, first off they are slightly green naturally if you use limes. You could use lemons, but mine are quite sweet, so I went with limes but there's also no reason you couldn't use a small orange instead and go for slightly orange coloured and flavoured ones. Really the flavoring is up to...

    Recipe Curried Thai aubergine

    Thai aubergines (eggplants) are rather different from the purple skinned, spongy fleshed type. They are smaller than ping pong balls and either green or white with a crisp flesh. They can be eaten raw or added to stir fries, retaining their crisp texture. Here I cooked them until tender which...

    How long will canned coconut milk keep after being opened?

    So about 2 weeks ago I opened up a can of coconut milk but didn't use the whole can. I poured the remainder of the coconut milk in a glass jar, sealed it tightly and put it in my refrigerator. Online sources state it will last about 7-10 days, but I am hoping it lasts longer. It still looks...

    Recipe Pizza Flavoured Kale Crisps

    So I thought it time to change the flavour if the usual kale crisps I make from our Sweet White Miso Kale Crisps to pizza flavoured.... If you don't have a dehydrator, some ovens go low enough as do some airfryers. Line a baking tray with ovenproof greaseproof/baking paper. So, the kale...

    Recipe Colcannon

    I love the simplicity of this recipe. Quantities really do not need to be exact and if you want to use dairy milk and dairy butter, it really won't affect it. The original recipe says to peel the potatoes, but I can tell you now that that is not necessary at all. The greens can be pretty much...

    I've adapted a recipe from one of my cookbooks. It was a freebie cookbook from a hotel in Blackpool (Lancashire, UK). We found it on the bookshelf in the "common room" and started to copy some of the recipes down. It got to the point where I had copied so many that the hotel owner came over... A...

    Recipe Parsnip & Turnip Stew

    This is a simple recipe, but it yields something that’s very complex in character. Parsnips have a quality that’s like carrots infused with nutmeg. Turnips have a cabbage-like taste, but they cook like a potato, making it more hearty and warming than cabbage. This recipe challenge made me really...

    Kumara (sweet tatter) and pumpkin balls.

    I've had these before but cant think where from? Has anyone had these ? My wife had them deep fried, she said cashews were in them. They were served with peanut sauce but I have my own recipe for that, so just the balls would help please. What would bind the mix? Russ
