The Lazy Vegan’s Store Cupboard
Unfortunately I can’t cook like Vegan Dad This is for a number of reasons –
1- My kitchen is so small, it should be in Lilliput (land where Gulliver’s Travels is set)
2- Anything I cook from scratch is either inedible, burnt or both.
Here are the things I could not do without –
1. Soya Mince. Extremely versatile, it can be used in a multitude of ways. My personal favourite is Shepherd’s Pie.
I love grated carrot and onion on mine, but there are fillings to suit everyone. Also great for children. Don’t forget the smiley face with the salad.
3. Pasta (check it contains no eggs, because if it does it might not be vegetarian never mind vegan as battery hen eggs may have been used). Like soya mince, you can add anything to the pasta that you fancy. How about boiled potatoes and freshly chopped tomatoes with a sprig of parsley?
4. Soya Protein Chunks or Textured Soya Protein (TVP). Great in stews (it’s about the only thing I don’t burn, not for the want of trying though), lasagne or, how about having a curry?
