When you’re in a hurry you can still eat well, as these fast and furiously tasty recipes prove

Quicker-than-takeout chow mein

This chow mein can be thrown together and on the table quicker than the delivery guy can get to your house. This recipe uses molasses to replicate the colour and sweetness of restaurant chow mein without the need to buy any specialty sauces. Be sure to have all your veggies chopped before firing up the pan, as the stir-frying only takes a few minutes.

About Vegan Food & Living Magazine

The rise in street food in the UK has been a revelation for us all, exposing us to new flavours and dishes from around the globe and thankfully there are some incredible vegan options. In the September issue of Vegan Food & Living we help you to cook up some of the best, including Gaz Oakley's 15-minute nasi goreng, which will quickly become a go-to favourite! Also this issue, we experiment with dishes from Italy and the Caribbean, whip up a selection of dishes that are ready in 30 minutes and cheaper than a takeaway, and sneak our favourite vegetables into some tasty bakes. We have part 1 of a new series starting in this issue too, called Women on the front-line of animal advocacy. This month we meet 3 inspirational characters who founded animal sanctuaries. If that's not enough, we reveal all about cruelty-free beauty, find the best eco-cities to live in around the world and find out why you need fibre in your diet and how to get enough of it.
