World Vegan Month

Wednesday 1st November 2017
What's in store this November?

World Vegan Month

There is no doubt that plant-based eating is on the rise and manufacturers and retailers are making and selling vegan food like never before. Also, with even meat-centric restaurants like Nando's and Toby Carvery now creating a good range of plant-based options, there's never been a better time to be eating vegan.

November is World Vegan Month and with a whole host of events over the next 30 days, whether you're a veteran, or just starting out, there's plenty to get involved in with an entire month of vegan celebrations kicking off today (November 1st) with World Vegan Day, but how will you be celebrating the occasion?

We're delighted to learn of some fantastic World Vegan Day celebrations going on today and here's three of our favourites to start you on the road towards a month of delicious ethical food.


Celebrate World Vegan Day on the 1st November with globally-inspired, natural food-brand BOL Foods.

Their Veg Pot range features four delicious combinations from around the world including Mexican Sweet Potato Chilli,Thai Coconut Curry, Sri Lankan Sambar and Jamaican Jerk Curry.

They are vegan friendly, packed with plant-based proteins, low in salt and sugar and count as two of your five-a-day. RRP at £3, they are available at Tesco, Waitrose and on Ocado and Amazon Fresh.

The menu is split into tiny and small plates designed to be shared, or can be doubled up as large plates for big appetites.

Small plates on the vegan menu include Miso & mango glazed aubergine with peanut crumble, Chickpea salad with rose harissa, parsley & date syrup and Roast sweet potato, soy yoghurt, pomegranate & chilli popcorn.

Flavour Bastard is a story of flavours running away from home, honouring tradition and respecting classical skills but incorporating new ideas. Founded by Vic Singh with Pratap Chahal founder of That Hungry Chef as executive chef, Flavour Bastard is set to become a rebellious addition to Soho's vibrant food scene.
