I want to try to do Veganuary again in the new year. I tried a couple of years ago and only managed 12 days so I really want to challenge myself to complete the whole month this time. When I tried it before I hadn’t long been trying to be gluten and dairy free and I found it really hard to cut out meat and fish too. Over the last two years I have tried a lot more vegan recipes and therefore have more of a variety of foods I know I can eat and will like.
But why go vegan? Whether you have a compassion for animals, concerns about the environment or are looking to improve your health, there are many reasons why people choose a plant-based diet. You can read more on the Vegan Society’s website here.
In this post I have compiled a list of recipes that I have tried before and enjoyed, and some that I would like to try. I have split them into sections of Dinners, Breakfasts, Lunch ideas and snacks. I hope this post will be a resource for others and if you have come here for ideas, I hope it helps.
Gnocchi with pesto or other sauce
Pasta & homemade pesto
Lasagne – this one from Nora Cooks looks amazing
Chickpea tikka masala (I use the sauce from this recipe and add two tins of chickpeas and some spinach)
