Veganuary, where the curious are persuaded to try out a meat and dairy-free lifestyle for a month is now drawing to a close. With lifestyle diets – paleo, vegan, gluten-free, and wheat-free – continuing to grow at a considerable rate in 2018, caterers should be looking to create enticing flavourful, nutritious, meat-free food all year round.

Bring tasty meat-free cuisine to your menus all year round!

Spicy, smoky flavours are integral to great winter vegan cuisine. Just a drop of Prep Premium oil can make all the difference to your dishes, giving the necessary depth of flavour to healthy options on the menu and making low-fat meals satisfying. Our FlavourHouse range adds real zing, bringing spicy, sweet and savoury tastes from around the globe to menus.

Pan Asian food is known for its diet-friendly credentials, with many dishes based on rice, noodles and lean protein. Prepare a tasty stir-fry by marinating tofu in Prep Premium Oriental Flame, and quickly flash fry with spring onions, lemongrass, Thai basil, red chilli and mint. Serve on a bed of vermicelli rice noodles and beansprouts for a main dish that’s full of punchy flavours and packed with nutrition. Step up the protein content even further by sprinkling with cashew nuts toasted in spicy chilli oil.  See our recipe here (replacing chicken with tofu). 

Salads are not just for the summer months, and loaded with good fats and proteins, can help ward off winter ailments as well as give a healthy eating plan a boost. Serve quinoa superfood salad, a mixture of quinoa, spelt, beans, nuts and pumpkin seeds. It’s lean, rich in protein, vitamins and fibre, and makes a tasty side dish or a satisfying main meal topped with some tofu brushed with chilli-flavoured toasted sesame oil and grilled until golden.

For another vegan option that ticks all the boxes in terms of health and taste, fry mediterranean vegetables, such as courgette and mushrooms, in Prep Premium Smokehouse and combine with tomato puree and arborio rice. Stuff into halved, de-seeded red peppers and bake with a vegan mozzarella-style cheese topping.
