  • Tofu & Mushroom Vegan Kebabs

  • These veggie and tofu kebabs are super flavourful lunch that work well with a simple side salad, or a rice dish if you’re hungry. If you soak the tofu and marinade the vegetables and tofu in advance, all you need to do is grill the skewers and make the sauce. The soy, ginger and garlic marinade combined with the peanut butter sauce is enough to leave you licking your lips.

  • Mexican Bean & Sweet Potato Nachos

  • This quick Tex-Mex vegan recipe is so much more than a snack, it’s a great quick lunch made with Mexican bean, sweet potato goodness and salsa to spice up your lunchtime. With a generous spoon of guac, sour cream, and vegan cheese – we recommend Violife – lodged between your nachos, it’s a winner!
