Anything you can make, I can make vegan


As we’ve touched on in recent articles, there has never been a more important time to add delicious and satisfying vegan dishes to your offering – and there are countless ways you can do this while keeping to your target profit margin.

Product development of vegan dishes has relied on old favourites like tofu, and while there’s plenty of space for tofu products on the market, there are innovative ingredients which can help you make vegan versions of your favourites or create something unique.


Seitan – A vegan’s best kept secret, this versatile meat substitute is made using hydrated wheat gluten and can develop a range of flavours and textures depending on how it is prepared.

Tofu – A true classic of vegan food, tofu is made from soy milk curds which are pressed into solid blocks of varying softness.

Tempeh – A staple of traditional Indonesian cuisine, tempeh is a fermented soy product which is as delicious as it is versatile.

Beans and pulses – Packed with protein and fibre, these are great additions to savoury dishes.

Pinhead oats – Oats with a fantastic texture which are more nutritious than rolled oats.

Ashwagandha powder – A key player in traditional Indian medicine which is known to increase energy levels and help in stress management and is a great addition to your vegan product recipes.
