Veganuary is a relatively new concept that was introduced in a 2014 campaign by a non-profit UK-based charity of the same name. The campaign encouraged the adoption of a vegan diet for the month of January. However, Veganism itself has a much longer history. Let’s have a look!
Green Calendar – January
Welcome to another year! We at the Green Office hope you had a great holiday and are refreshed and reinvigorated for period 3. And what better way is there to start a new period (especially when the year is new as well) than marking dates on a blank calendar?
So, grab your green calendar, and let us begin!
Vegan Holiday Feast: a 5-Course Meal
Imagine the following: you’re sitting down for dinner with your family and friends when you suddenly realize, that the only thing you can eat is the fruit bowl and dry potatoes. That can ruin anyone’s holiday mood. If this is a familiar feeling, you’re in the right place. I’ve gathered some amazing vegan dishes for a full 5-course feast to help you enjoy the holidays to the fullest.
Brussels Sprout Soup with Tofu Topping
This soup is perfect when you want a light dish in the evening. It’s also quite easy to make, doesn’t need many ingredients and still tastes great. The tofu topping is meant to imitate ham cubes, rounding up the dish perfectly.
Vegan Andijvie Stamppot
Stamppots are a bit part of dutch cuisine and this time we revisited the traditional ‘andijvie stamppot’ and vegetarianized/veganized it.
Pumpkin & Onion Tart
This vegan recipe is perfect for social gatherings and meal prepping in autumn and winter. Pumpkin harvest is in autumn, starting in September and ending in November. If you’re lucky, you can find them until March when they were stored properly.
