After Eight Fruity Shake with Fresh Mint

Perk Yourself Up With a Vegan-licious Kiwi, Mint & Apple Juice!

Perfect blended with some ice for a really long, cool drink, this smoothie will refresh you after a long day. Using a juicer is preferable but if you don't have one, try blending - if it's a little too lumpy, just put it through a sieve.

Fast & Funky Noodles

Super-simple Super Noodle Dish Made in Minutes!
This lovely recipe lends itself to lots of variations. If you haven't tried fresh soya beans (edamame), go for it. They're now widely available in large supermarkets as well as health food shops. They are a beautiful green colour and taste delicious as well as being full of protein, fibre, iron - and are also cholesterol-lowering!
For a gluten-free option, use rice noodles or gluten-free spaghetti and use tamari soya sauce, which is wheat/gluten-free

Anti-aging Avocado, Tomato & Coriander Smoothie

This Avocado, Tomato & Coriander Smoothie is Guacamole in a Glass!
Excellent for the skin, avocados are packed with goodness. Good with a dash of tabasco or some black pepper.

Apricot & Cashew Smoothie

Healthy fast food! This makes a lovely quick breakfast or energy boost if you are training.
For a soya-free alternative, use another type of non-dairy milk, eg rice, almond, oat or coconut - all widely available from large supermarkets or health food shops.

Avocado & Smoked Tofu Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette

A great way to use tofu if you aren't too familiar with it. One of our perennial favourites - it always wins converts at our cookery demos! 

It's particularly nice with Taifun smoked tofu - available from good health food shops or large branches of Waitrose.

Baba Ghanoush (Aubergine Dip)

A classic dip of Middle-Eastern and Greek origin that is wonderful with falafels, pitta bread, hummus and salad. For a reduced-fat version, halve the quantities of oil and tahini.

Chinese-style Wraps

Another lunch-time or snack-attack goodie! This recipe offers a choice of seitan, tofu or faux chicken pieces.

Seitan (also known as gluten)is made from the most protein-rich part of wheat. It's a healthy, natural and delicious alternative to meat and has been used in China and elsewhere for centuries. Seitan is available in jars from good health food shops. Tinned gluten can be found in Oriental supermarkets - plain or as mock duck or mock chicken. Redwood Cheatin' Chicken Pieces are found in health food shops. Alternatively, use cubed smoked or plain fried tofu.
