It’s the end of November and it’s starting to feel very wintery. Christmas is just around the corner, but before we go there we thought we would have one last autumnal hurrah. So we’ve had a dig through our ever-increasing list of products licensed to carry the Vegetarian Society Approved trademarks to come up with five vegetarian and vegan food must-haves.
BOL’s Sweet Potato & Cauliflower Immune Boosting Super Soup
Sweet potatoes and cauliflowers are in season right about now. This turmeric-infused hearty soup features a mix of beluga lentils, sweet potato, chunky cauliflower and coconut milk. We recommend serving it with some warm crusty bread!
Dell Ugo’s Fresh Pumpkin Gnocchi
Pumpkin gnocchi is a great way to use up leftover pumpkins, but chances are your Halloween pumpkin has had it by now. Fear not, you can go and get yourself a bag of this. Instead of making a sauce, try dressing the gnocchi in a simple garlic sage butter.
Aldi’s Spiced Cauliflower Lattice
Aldi have introduced lots of new meat-free products recently and this is their latest offering – you’ll find them in the freezer section in packs of two. Once baked, the warm gently spiced cauliflower filling perfectly complements the outer crisp and flaky pastry. These are great as a snack or as part of a veggie Sunday roast.
Driver’s 1906 Pickled Onions
As we move into December, cheese board sets seem to re-appear from the back of cupboards. Nothing beats sitting by the fire and having a nibble on your very own meat-free Smörgåsbord. Pickled onions make a great accompaniment to your potential platter.
Beloved’s Pumpkin & Sunflower Seed Date Cereal Bars
OK now for something sweet… This cereal bar makes a perfect on-the-go snack, packed full of dates and seeds, essential fuel for jumping around in big piles of fallen leaves.
