Quick, easy and on a budget – find vegan recipes that aim to make your life easier in the May issue of Vegan Food & Living

As much as we love to cook, and spending an hour carefully preparing dinner after work is quite therapeutic for us, we all have evenings when we need to whip something up in a hurry, or we want something simple that doesn’t require too much effort.

Plus with the cost of living increasing at the moment, we’re all a little more conscious of cooking on a budget too.

So in the May issue of Vegan Food & Living, you’ll find recipes that can be whipped up in just 30 minutes, make great use of storecupboard staples, or are just a little simpler to prepare and let the oven do the hard work for you.

Try everything from the jackfruit burrito bowl cover star to one pot rainbow pasta, turmeric-spiced chickpea naan, and Greek beans with ‘feta’ and olives.

Also this issue, we get a masterclass in cooking curries from around the world by Atul Kochhar, reveal how to eat more plants to improve your gut health, and share comforting recipes that come in at under 500 calories.

This month we also celebrate the winners of our inaugural Vegan Food & Living Supermarket Awards. We spend a lot of time showcasing the developments of big brands and sometimes forget just how much work the supermarkets are doing in bringing us amazing own-brand products. So we asked you to choose your favourites, and now we reveal the winners.

If that’s not enough, we also look at the life of a honey bee, reveal how you can do more to help animals without spending a penny, and question if you know the carbon footprint of your food choices.

If you’re in the mood to revamp your home a little, we also check out the next-gen materials that are being developed to help make our homes more sustainable. Lampshades made from oranges, anyone?

Find all this and much more in the May issue of Vegan Food & Living, on sale now.
