The rise and rise of veganism in the last few years has been difficult to miss; in fact, the number of vegans in the UK had skyrocketed by over 350% from 2006 to 2016 .
Whether the motivation is down to environmental reasons, a love of animals, a lactose intolerance or preferring to eat plant foods, everyone has their own reasons for eating a plant based diet. However, if you want to sample a vegan diet without completely giving up meat, eggs and dairy, there are a few dishes you can make to try it out – and you can even get your family and friends on board.
You could begin by making one vegan dish a week, or by following initiatives such as Veganuary and committing for a month. Either way, we’ve rounded up a selection of warming, fragrant, hearty vegan meals to try this winter; perfect for a comforting dinner when eating solo or when cooking for family and friends.
