Vegan Recipes which will Wow – For vegans, being in love with an omnivore is like being in love with someone from another country. Hopefully the following recipes will surprise and delight your omnivore SO.
Some Tasty Vegan Recipes
“I could never be vegan!” It’s something that virtually every vegan has heard over the years. And, no matter how much we love our food, it can be hard to turn a blind eye to the ethical and environmental atrocities created in the name of industrialised farming. While things may not be quite as bad in the UK as across the pond, many are choosing an all (or mostly) plant-based diet for ethical and health reasons.
For vegans, being in love with an omnivore is like being in love with someone from another country. No matter how much you may adore them, you may always feel that there’s one thing that separates you. Cooking two separate dinners can be awkward, as can keeping ingredients separate in the fridge and freezer. And the prospect of an all-vegan Christmas without turkey might be a tricky pitch to your meat and dairy loving Significant Other.
But just as you can hire specialist ias immigration solicitors to help an immigrant loved one get UK citizenship, so too can even the most devout carnivore be lured towards a diet with more plants and less animal products. If you’re a vegan in love with someone who vows they could never give up meat and airy, here are some vegan recipes which will surprise and delight your omnivore SO.
Hummus and grilled vegetable pizza
Think you can’t have pizza without the cheese? Think again! While there are lots of great vegan cheese substitutes on the market (most of which are coconut oil based), they never quite taste or behave quite like the real thing. So many, especially those who would rather eschew processed foods, instead opt for a homemade pizza base topped with hummus to moisten the base and succulent grilled veggies like peppers, aubergine, courgette, sun dried tomatoes or olives.
Southern fired oyster mushrooms
If your loved one craves KFC but you’d rather not have to clean their plate of greasy chicken bones, there are lots of substitutes that can still provide the same satisfying crunch, without meat our dairy. Cauliflower is a good one. But for our money, oyster mushrooms provide a satisfyingly stringy and juicy texture that complements the crunchy, spicy coating.
Cauliflower mac and “cheese”
Mac and cheese is a go-to comfort food for many. But if you’ve sworn off dairy, your SO could be forgiven that it’s forever off the menu. However, blended cauliflower combined with nutritional yeast can make for a convincing and satisfying substitute that’s also high in protein and vitamin B12.
Peanut butter “cheesecake”
Hope you’ve saved room for pudding. Any long-time vegan veteran will tell you that you really don’t need milk to enjoy a satisfying and indulgent dessert. This vegan peanut butter cheesecake recipe has just 9 ingredients and provides a heavenly combination of tastes and textures. A combination of ground biscuits (Oreos are a popular vegan choice), soaked cashew nuts, peanut butter, maple syrup, non-dairy milk, coconut oil and lemon juice is all you need.
Utterly non-udderly delicious!
