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.

Baby Broad Bean, Tomato & Fresh Herb Salad with Creamy Dressing

This is a very fresh, simple salad and quite cheap as well as being a good source of protein. Frozen broad beans aren't expensive. Alternatively, try cooked flageolet beans or edamame (fresh green soya beans, pictured).You can buy tinned or dried flageolet beans from good supermarkets, health stores or delis; edamame (fresh green soya beans) are sold frozen in large supermarkets or Oriental grocers.

Cauliflower Cheeze with Sweet Potatoes & Tangy Green Salad

A rather delicious vegan variation on an old favourite! Here, we serve it with sweet potatoes and a watercress and rocket salad - but it would go with other things nicely, depending on your budget and what is in season.

Toad in the Hole with Homemade Sausages

New and improved recipe which has been dished up to TV food critics on ITV's Britain's Best Dish and they loved it! Serve with Rose's gravy or our Red Wine and Porcini Mushroom Gravy. If you haven't time to make the sausages, use ready-made vegan sausies such as Fry's, Linda McCartney, Redwood or Vegetarian Choice - or even good old Sosmix.

Buckwheat Pancakes with Spicy Stuffing

A very nice way to use left-over potatoes. This recipe tastes good with a dollop of soya yoghurt or served with Lentil Dahl and steamed cabbage or spinach. You could even add a few handfuls of cooked chickpeas or cooked whole lentils to the stuffing too.
A non-stick or well-seasoned cast-iron pan is essential to make good pancakes.

Middle-Eastern Bulghur Pudding

Bulghur is cracked wheat. It’s often used in a delicious salad called Tabbouleh, but here it’s given an aromatic, Middle-Eastern sweet twist! It is also nice served with plain dairy-free yoghurt or dairy-free cream, such as Alpro or Oatly..

Middle-Eastern Nutty Millet Pilaf

A fresh, light alternative to traditional risotto. 
This simple tasty dish is a nice way to use millet, a much underrated wholegrain. The peas add a good source of protein and iron. Or try replacing the millet with quinoa: roast it in the same way, reduce the stock to about 400ml and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until it is tender.

Best served with dairy-free yoghurt - for example Alpro, Provamel or Tesco plain vegan yoghurt, available from large supermarkets or health food shops.

Nutty Butty Vegan Coleslaw Sandwich

Made with delicious home-made vegan coleslaw, this is a treat of a sarnie. It requires a bit of grating so if you have a food processor with grating attachments, go for it!
