20 Delicious Veganuary Recipes

Thinking of giving Veganuary a try? It’s a great way to try eating delicious vegan food for a month!  Here are some of my very favourite vegan recipes. With ideas for breakfast, main meal, snacks and desserts I’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 my dogs after all.  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.  Oh and so much easier than you might imagine.


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

Split Yellow Pea Breakfast Fritters – these Breakfast Fritters are a terrific way to pack in extra veggies (particularly ones you might not normally have for breakfast!)  Serve with a couple of grilled field mushrooms and fresh tomatoes and you have a breakfast full of fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals.

Quinoa Porridge with Autumn Fruit Jam – Start your morning off in the best possible way with this rich and creamy quinoa porridge topped with autumn fruit jam. Full of flavour and energy boosting ingredients makes it a great alternative to oats!

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 isn’t it?!
