To join force with our vegan customers, we've decided to put together a list of our most popular vegan recipes.
We have everything from smoothies, breakfast ideas, re-imagined classic, soups, stews, dinner, and sweet treat.
As with all of our recipes, they have been tested and tried in house (on many occasions by our team) and will be healthy too.
Chocolate Scrummy Granola

Mix the dry ingredients (except the cacao powder) together in a big bowl and set aside

- Place granola mixture on a lined tray and pat down and bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally
- Take out of the oven and let cool before breaking into large pieces and storing into an airtight container.
Blueberry Pie Smoothie
- Add all the ingredients in a blender and whizz until you have a smooth consistency

3 shallots, chopped
500ml vegetable broth
200ml coconut milk
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional to serve: Pumpkin seeds and coconut milk
- Preheat the oven to gas mark 4. In a large bowl, mix the olive oil to the pumpkin/butternut squash pieces.

Evolution Organics Superfood Salad
150g fresh kale
120g peas, frozen
1 handful of green and black olives
20g sprouts (alfalfa or broccoli)
1 gem lettuce, leaves left whole
20g toasted seeds
½ red onion, thinly sliced
Small handful parsley – chopped
Small handful mint - chopped
3 tablespoons houmous
1 avocado cut into pieces
100g crumbly vegan cheese
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
- Put the quinoa in a small pan. Cover with cold water (plus a bit more) and gently simmer until the water is gone – about 10-15 mins. Spread it on a tray to cool to room temperature.
- In a large bowl, put the kale and add 1-2 tbsp of lemon juice and massage the kale*
- Boil a large pan of water and drop the peas and simmer for about 1-2 mins. Drain and let cool.
- Now for the dressing – place the oil, lemon juice and garlic in a jar and shake vigorously to mix.
- Place all the salad ingredients in a large bowl (quinoa, kale, peas, sprout, lettuce, seeds, red onion, fresh herbs, seeds) and mix.
- Divide into plates and add dollops of houmous, avocado slices and crumbly vegan cheese on top and when you’re ready to serve add the dressing.
*Kale is quite tough and fibrous and can be difficult to chew. By massaging it for as little as 2-3 minutes it becomes more tender, making it easier to chew and digest.
Asian Nutty Slaw
1 large carrots
Handful cashew nuts
Fresh mint, coriander and dill (a large handful in total)
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 red chilli (optional)
To serve: 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 Tbsp Aminos All Purpose Sauce
1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 lime (juice)
3 Tbsp extra virgin oil
- In a large mixing bowl, prep your veggies, slice the cabbage, julienne the carrot and apple (match stick size). Add the juice of 1/2 lime to keep the apples from oxidising.
- Chop the cashew, fresh herbs and chilli (if using). Add to the veggies.
- Make the dressing by mixing all the ingredients.
- To serve, add the dressing and sprinkle with sesame seeds*
*It’s best to use the dressing just before you want to eat the slaw, leaving overnight for example will make the nuts and some of the veggies soggy.
How to use:
- In a fish taco
- Topped with a fried egg and chilli sauce
- In any sandwich
- Super tasty topped with large avocado chunks
- On its own
Vegan Staple - Cashew mylk!
Pinch of Himalayan Salt
- Gently clean the cashews under cold water and cover them with filtered water overnight
- Once they have soaked, drain the water
- Put the nuts in your blender along with 2 cups of water, a pinch of salt and also the dates/vanilla/cinnamon (if using) and blend at high speed for a few minutes (until it looks smooth).
- Put your metal strainer lined with a cheese cloth over a large bowl and pour the mixture in
- Gather the cheese cloth and squeeze and press to extract as much mylk as possible*
- Store the mylk in a sealed bottle in the fridge, it will keep for up to a week.
*Unlike most nut mylk, you do not need to strain cashew mylk but I like to ensure it's smooth.
Creamy 3 ingredients Caramel
125g dried dates, chopped
1 cup of boiling water
1 teaspoon of vanilla paste
What you will need
A food processor*

A container with a tight fitting lid (mason/kilner jar is my pick)
- Put the chopped dates and boiling water in a container with a tight fitting lid, close and let to rest for 30 minutes
- Put the dates and water in a food processor alongside the vanilla
- Whizz until smooth and add more water until it’s at the consistency you want
- Strain the caramel in your sieve.
Serve with pancakes or with sliced apples as a treat. Will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
* A blender is fine too but will take longer and you will need to scrape the sides
