Vegan Chocolate Cheesecake Bites with Homemade Strawberry Jam

Wed, 19 Aug, 2020 - 00:29

I’ve always had this impression that jam and jelly were incredibly tricky to make. I’ve never properly used pectin, and any discussion of disinfecting and sealing Ball jars provokes anxiety. And yet, I’m well versed at compotes and fruit sauces to top pancakes and French toast in the morning! And they’re not so different. The ease with which every contestant on the Great British Bake Off whips up a jam for their cakes or trifles inspires me, and I’ve wanted...

Recipe: Vegan Tempeh and Cranberry Pot Pie

Thu, 12 Dec, 2019 - 19:25

I split a weekly CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share - a veg box! - with my husband and another friend. I love that it gives us local produce throughout the year, connects us to the landscape and the seasons where we live, and the farmers who provide our food, and is much more environmentally friendly than getting all our fruit & veg from the grocery store. 

In our last November share, we were given a surprise bag of...

Eat Peas! Thinking About the Ethics of Veganism

Fri, 8 Jun, 2018 - 14:16

Here’s some interesting reflections on the ethics of veganism by Dhivan:

“A recent article in the Guardian (that I read via a post about Buddhist Action Month) shares some new research about the environmental effects of meat and dairy farming compared to growing cereals and plants. The results are stark; “even the very lowest impact meat and dairy products still cause much more environmental harm than the least sustainable vegetable and cereal growing”. In short, growing peas has a...

One Thing You Can Do to Help Tackle Climate Change

Mon, 4 Jun, 2018 - 15:32

It’s Buddhist Action Month, and you may well be reflecting on the choices you make and the impact they have on the world around you. It is clear that humanity is facing into an unprecedented situation of human caused global warming, and, without taking adequate and immediate action, runaway climate change is imminent- which would ultimately make most of our planet uninhabitable for humans. So far, so alarming. What is one to do in such a situation?

We especially want to increase the representation of women in...

Whether you’re eating with fellow vegans/veggies or sharing the holiday with meat eaters, why not offer some lovely, kind and inclusive food that everyone can eat? I cook vegan every year for ‘mixed’ friends and family, all of whom love the all vegan dinner, desserts and everything!

VEGAN EXPLORATION AT GAIA HOUSE

VEGAN EXPLORATION AT GAIA HOUSE

Wed, 30 Sep, 2015 - 21:33

On Sunday 28th September 2015, nine people gathered in a small shrine room at Gaia House to share personal stories and find out more about veganism. The participants in the event ranged from self-confessed ‘fundamentalist’ vegan to meat-eater. Drawing on points from Buddhism on a Plate, Samacitta presented veganism as a journey and suggested that we can be at different points on that same journey. After the talking, the group defected to the kitchen where Jane demonstrated cooking scrambled tofu...

Veganuary - recipes, inspiration and more

Mon, 5 Jan, 2015 - 07:34The lovely folk at www.veganuary.com have relaunched last year’s site and it’s even better (and bigger) - and of course, it’s free. Whether you’ve already dipped your toes in the waters of vegan life or want to give it a go, this is a great resource. It may be that you want to try the entire month as a vegan or perhaps try a more gradual approach, eg Vegan Monday (or Tuesday or…) It’s completely flexible.
