Cook vegan versions of classic British dishes tonight

Indulge in a spot of nostalgia and learn how to cook vegan versions of classic British dishes with the June 2022 issue of Vegan Food & Living magazine.

Fish and chips, lamb hot pot, Cornish pasties, Bakewell tart, spotted dick… there are plenty of iconic dishes that come to mind when you think of classic British cooking.

But all of the traditional versions sadly come with an added helping of cruelty. So we’re turning the classics on their heads in the June issue of Vegan Food & Living, to create cruelty-free versions of all your former favourites.

Aimee Ryan’s breakfast butty that adorns our cover this issue really does have to be tried to be believed. The crispy facon that is possibly the star of the show is actually made from rice wrappers!

Joining this is banana blossom ‘fish’ and chips, Scottish rumbledethump pies, no-chicken and mushroom pie, summer pudding, strawberry trifle and much more.

At the start of June we’re also treated to a bonus four day bank holiday to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. We’re hoping that the weather holds out so we can enjoy a little al fresco dining, so to celebrate we have plant-based kebabs and burgers for the barbecue, super salads, plus we show you how to put together the perfect vegan afternoon tea.

If that’s not enough, we’ve got a gardening special waiting for you. For first-time growers we reveal the top 5 houseplants to get you started.

For those who want to make their gardens more sustainable, we share 9 steps to a greener garden. Plus we explore the concept of rewilding.

This issue you can also win a Georgian Tall Wall Greenhouse, worth £680 from Forest Garden.

You can find all this and much more in the June issue of Vegan Food & Living, on sale now.

P.S. If you buy your magazine from Waitrose this month you can enter an exclusive competition to win over £300 of goodies from Zwilling, including the Zwilling Table Blender, Z-Cut Multi Grater, and Zwilling’s Fresh & Save 7 piece glass vacuum starter set.
