Tofu/Bean Burger with Wedges & Salad, Convenience-style

Tofu Burger with Wedges & Salad

Another ready-meal that’s actually very healthy! Dragonfly Beany Burgers have been around for years and make a great standby for those busy evenings. They’re a nice ethical company too. Find them in Holland & Barrett, Ocado and other online stores and other independent high street shops. Click here for details

If you can’t get hold of them or fancy something else, never fear! Linda McCartney Quarter Pounders, Fry’s burgers and Vegetarian choice are some of the best known vegan burgers. Most of the supermarkets also now offer a vegan beanburger… just check the label.

Ready to bake potato wedges are also widely available – either white, eg McCain’s or the healthier sweet potato, eg Aunt Bessie’s Sweet Potato Wedges. There are other brands around, including supermarket own-brands – most of these are vegan, just check the packet ingredients as ever!.

Ready-made vegan coleslaw is available at M&S, Ocado and some health food shops. If you have time, grate a bit of white cabbage, carrot and mix in with thinned down vegan mayo – soya or other unsweetened plant milk works well plus a bit of salt and black pepper. Coleslaw is also good with a bit of chopped mild onion, eg spring or red. Or try our lovely Carrot & Beetroot Slaw

Did you know that Vegan Recipe Club is run by a charity?

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
