Thinking of going vegan, and looking for some inspiration?

Winter Pilau (c) David Loftus

Here are our Director Lara’s top tips for making the transition:

  1. Start with dishes you know and love
  2. Find a community – meet some vegans (come to JVS, join the Jewish Vegans page on Facebook / meetups)
  3. Try new ingredients
  4. Do some nutritional research, I would recommend the Vegan Society and Veganuary’s websites. Look in to B12, There are a lot of myths around protein – look up how much you actually need – protein calculators online
  5. Have fun and experiment!
  6. Invest in a good Vegan cookbook – anything by Bosh! or Isa Chandra Moskowitz

Entertaining a vegan?

  1. Make a vegan meal so that everyone can enjoy the same food, that way there is need to make another meal
  2. Gravitate towards naturally vegan dishes – curries, Middle Eastern food
  3. Why not ask your vegan guest for suggestions or to help?
