20 Delicious Veganuary Recipes

Thinking of giving Veganuary a try? It’s a great chance to try eating delicious vegan food for a month and here are some of our very favourite Veganuary recipes. With ideas for breakfast, main meal, snacks and desserts we’ve got you covered!

There are almost as many reasons to be vegan as there are actual vegans.  Almost 😉  For me animal welfare was the catalyst.  I could no longer claim I loved animals yet eat them.  I wouldn’t eat Meg or Nooch after all – even if they wouldn’t be stringy as heck!!  But with so many people becoming increasingly aware of how consuming meat and dairy is impacting our environment and health as well, more and more are turning to a plant based way of eating.  Trying Veganuary recipes for a month is a good way to introduce yourself to just how easy and delicious vegan food can be!

And while the best thing about Veganuary is you can do it any time of the year, lots combine it with their ‘New Year’s Resolutions’ and see trying vegan as the healthiest way to start to their year.

Whenever you decide to give it a go (that’s why you’re here right?) you can sign up to receive all manner of expert support, advice, tips, news and offers.

I thought I’d go the food route and show you just how exciting and damn delicious vegan food really is.


We’ve got sweet, savoury, quick and leisurely for the most important (and our personal favourite!) meal of the day.

Congratulations if you made it this far down the list!  A lot of people (myself included) thought there would be so much you’d have to give up, even coming from a vegetarian diet.  How can you bake without eggs and butter?  What about cheese?  And tofu – well that’s just blergh!
