Today is World Vegan Day, an occasion upon which we and our harvest brethren are permitted to frolic aimlessly in meadows and a day on which we celebrate food that isn’t galline, porcine, bovine, ursine or anything else-ine.
To celebrate, we here at Lifeline24 bring you four excellent vegan recipes to satisfy your midriff.
Chickpea Tuna Sandwiches
For the newly converted, it can often be difficult to know what options there are to fill the void left by some of their previous favourite foods. Luckily, more often than not, there are vegan ways to approximate and often improve upon the textures and flavours you’re used to.
In this vegan take on the tuna sandwich, the ‘tuna’ comprises chickpeas, vegan mayo, avocado and chopped celery. The texture of a good tuna sandwich, but with new and interesting flavours.
Sweet Potato and White Bean Chilli
For those with a temperament as fiery as the earth’s molten core, this chilli recipe is a must. You can prepare it in under an hour and it the combination of the sweet potato with cumin, paprika and coriander gives it a beautifully rich flavour.
It’s also a great one for leftovers; freeze and reheat to your heart’s content.
Grape & Rosemary Foccaccia
Here’s one of all you bread heads out there. Only ten minutes to prepare, then stick in the oven and kick back with a (vegan) magazine. The grapes and rosemary give it a unique but lovely flavour, and there’s no kneading required, so your knuckles and palms can take a well-deserved break.
Ultimate Vegan Pizza
When in food-related doubt, always defer to the old green, white and red. With this simple pizza dough recipe, and a breadth of vegan toppings to choose from, you’ll never be anything short of satisfied.
