Sun’s out, buns out…

The first sign of the sun can only mean one thing – it’s time to get the barbecue out! Nothing says summertime like a smoking grill piled high with delicious food. And being vegan doesn’t mean missing out – on the contrary there’s a giant range of tasty plant-based treats you can sink your teeth into.

Many people like to go for meat alternatives – plant-based sausages, steaks and more – and with the marketplace burgeoning with these products, there are certainly a lot of choices, whether you want to build a giant, juicy burger with slices of dairy-free cheese, or create a succulent hot dog, smothered in sauces and topped with fried onions. Just a few short years ago it would be difficult to pick up different options, but they are becoming increasingly available in health food stores as well as standard supermarkets.

The more adventurous among you may fancy cooking your own seitan – then grilling thin slices on top of hot coals, before wrapping in a floury pitta alongside crisp iceberg lettuce, juicy succulent slices of tomato, paper thin pieces of red onion, and a drizzle of cool, flavourful vegan tzatziki.

Another option is to forego meat alternatives entirely and focus on the rich bounty offered by vegetables. Try cauliflower ‘steaks’ – thick slabs of the vegetable marinated in a juicy, spicy sauce then chargrilled on top of smoking coals. Then there are the classics – corn on the cob, as well as foil-wrapped potatoes (with small slabs of dairy-free butter thrown in for extra flavour).

And then of course you have the sides and drinks…

We particularly like a veggie slaw – use a mandolin slicer to create wafer-thin shavings of raw fruit and veggies including red cabbage, apple and carrot – then mix the lot with vegan mayo, a dash of vinegar and a sprinkle of sugar. Fresh, crunchy and bursting with taste, this side manages to pack a punch and add a party flavour to any of your mains – be they veggies or plant-based meats.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to June’s issue of Vegan Life magazine. I’m really excited about this one – as you’ll have seen, we have a very special cover star this issue. Evanna Lynch is known for her acting (she’s currently treading the boards in London’s West End) and previously played the role of Luna in the Harry Potter franchise. I was lucky enough to meet Evanna herself at Vegan Life Live in January, and it was fantastic to talk to her about some of her upcoming projects as well as her views on veganism. The brilliant profile piece inside was written by another wonderful vegan I have been lucky enough to meet on a number of occasions (and who has been featured herself on these pages in the past), Deni Kirkova. The original images were taken by Toby Shaw – all at Hugletts Wood Farm Animal Sanctuary. It’s finally summer, which means we can take our dining from ‘al desk-o’ (groan) to al fresco. With this in mind, we have put together a recipe-packed feature to help you enjoy your best vegan barbeque season yet. What role does a plant-based diet play in conservation? We all know how much animal agriculture contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, but what other impacts does it have? Katie Chabriere - a trustee for the UK-based charity Neotropical Primate Conservation – talks about her experience of working on conservation as a vegan. Another really inspiring herbivore in this issue is Jo-Anne McArthur. This amazing photographer has documented hundreds of scenes showing the ways we exploit animals. Her work is incredible, and it was a privilege to chat with her about being an artist. And finally – Dixe Wills is probably one of the most interesting writers I have ever spoken to. As author of a number of popular titles including The Z-Z of Great Britain, Places to Hide in England, Scotland and Wales, New World Order, and The Armchair Naturalist, his latest offering Tiny Campsites has recently been published in its third edition. Have a great month.
