Vegan ... avoid dairy and eggs, as well as fur, leather, wool, down, and cosmetics or chemical products tested on animals.
Please give your recipe a title and include full description of how to prepare the dish you have a home recipe for. The cuisines of most nations contain dishes that are suitable for a vegan diet, as are specific traditional ingredients such as tofu, tempeh and the wheat product seitan in Asian diets. Many recipes that traditionally contain animal products can be adapted by substituting vegan ingredients, e.g. nut, grain or soy milk used to replace cow's milk; eggs replaced by substitutes such as products made from starch. Additionally, artificial "meat" products ("analogs" or "mock meats") made from non-animal derived ingredients such as soya or gluten, including imitation sausages, ground beef, burgers, and chicken nuggets are widely available.

I've long since given into the temptation of bacon butties but, thanks to the state of my finances, and given that carrots are a darn sight cheaper than steak, I've started using more and more of the recipes I used during my time as a vegan. The following soup (adapted from Sarah Brown's "Beans, Nuts and Lentils") is as big on taste as it is on cheap nutrition, making it worth a try even if you're preferences run more to the carnivorous than the herbivorous. NB: I usually use tinned beans, but if you prefer to use the dried sort (cheaper, but less convenient) you'll need to soak the beans for a minimum of 10hrs before using. The tinned variety have ...

Melt the chocolate, either in the microwave (30 seconds, stir and repeat until melted, be careful it doesn't burn) or using a bain-marie (plastic or Pyrex dish inside a saucepan of boiling water, be sure no water gets into the chocolate). 2.

Although not a vegan myself, I was introduced to this recipe by a vegan friend of mine and was very impressed with the result.

For this recipe you will need: - swirl shaped pasta - olive oil - Provamel cream - courgette - sweetcorn - tomatoes - aubergine - red onion - yellow/red pepper - broccoli - carrot - mushrooms RECIPE: Cook the pasta in a pan while warming some olive oil in a wok. Wash all the vegetables ... Read the complete review

Vegan Cheesecake This recipe was my version of a mix of various recipe elements that I think work the best. It has come out every time with a beautiful texture and has fooled many non-vegans! It tastes great and is wonderful treat for a celebration or just for an everyday pleasure. There is no cholesterol in this recipe as it uses vegan cheese (available in health food shops/some supermarkets) based on a blend of water and soy/vegetable oils. A healthier way to enjoy a lovely dessert! Have to hand: An 8inch cake tin, preferably with removable base 1 box of soft silken tofu 1 tub of 'scheese'/any vegan cream ... Read the complete review
