Going to try a week of being vegan and thought it might be nice to share plans, if anyone else has one!

Have gone for:

Tofu and vege satay with noodles
Butternut squash, cauli and chickpea curry (going to use a sauce from Fresh India but with vegan cream) with rice
Roasted carrot and lentil salad with vegan feta
Spiced sweetcorn chowder with coconut milk
And an easy one - bought vegan pasties, with baked sweet potatoes and mango salsa

Hoummus, pitta and carrot/celery sticks for lunches for me, and beans on toast for dp! Weetabix with almond milk for dp for breakfast; vegan coconut yoghurt with oats and blueberries for me, or toast and jam.

I'm really excited about trying some new things!

Come join us on the vegan board for lots of recipes. Also vegan food uk and bosh on Facebook are brilliant for ideas.

Am not on Facebook. I didn't know there was a vegan board - will find it! Thanks.

There's also a Veganuary 2018 thread, where a few people are trying new vegan things. smile

Laura - Do you have a recipe for the biryani, please?

Yes, it's the Forks Over Knives one which is replicated here alternativetriathlete.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/one-vegan-meal-week-vegetable-biryani.html

I found it slightly bland to be honest but you can up the spices (or not if children are eating it too) but the pineapple chutney was fantastic: dice an onion, saute it in 1tbsp water (or oil if you use it) until soft, add 2 jalapeño peppers diced and 1 tbsp cumin seeds and cook for 4 minutes, then add half a medium pineapple, diced, take it off the heat and let it sit for a few minutes before stirring in a good handful of chopped coriander. It really pepped up the biryani.

Thanks. The chutney sounds lovely - have done similar with mango before, but like the idea of pineapple as a change.
