Vegan recipe tips for 2020

For anyone trying Veganuary this year, or just working out how to cook vegan more often, here are my tips of some handy recipes!

  • Chilli sin carne

  • African peanut stew

  • Tofu scramble - really surprising how nice this is. It's a replacement for scrambled egg - of course you can tell the difference, it's totally different - but you might like it as much as I do. Warm a little bit of oil in a pan. Add a pack of tofu (drained) and use your spatula to break it up into rough pieces. Add a splash of oat milk, and a generous teaspoon per person of turmeric, and continue to stir it around and break it up until it's in scrambled-egg-sized pieces. Near the end of cooking, add a sprinkle of nutritional yeast ("yeast flakes"). Serve on bread/toast just like you would scrambled eggs.

  • Fake fish and chips - easy and popular

  • Two easy mushroom tarts

  • Pad thai - watch the video!

  • Sticky shiitake mushrooms (quick)

  • Beetroot wellington - a bit more involved, for a Sunday lunch.

...and for more convenience: Vivera's meat-like things are great (shawarma), and Taifun's tofu is great (the black forest flavoured one is quite sausagey, the garlic one is nice, and the basil one is good for italian)
