#Veganuary is back once again, and with the month-long vegan challenge gaining huge popularity year on year, we thought we’d provide some support for anyone deciding to go plantbased this January! From sweet and savoury breakfasts, to hearty lunches and decadent desserts, here are some of the protein-packed recipes you need to try this month… who said vegans only eat lettuce?
Last year Zoats took the fitness world by storm, and it’s now quite normal to grate courgette into bowls of breakfast oats, despite a few funny looks from family members or co-workers. This savoury porridge recipe might sound like we’ve taken the trend a step too far, but it’s a great way to keep your sweet tooth in check and tastes just like a quick, oaty risotto - perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Find the recipe, here.
Vegan Chocolate Pancakes
Sometimes there's nothing better than embracing your inner child and eating chocolate for breakfast. Luckily, this indulgent-tasting vegan pancake recipe will still keep you feeling full all morning, thanks to the slow-releasing oats and generous hit of protein. Find the recipe, here.
Great for a light breakfast or snack, this crunchy, lightly sweet Matcha Granola will have you wanting to bake another batch immediately because you finished it all in one sitting. You’ll need around thirty minutes to make it, and you can replace any of the nuts in the recipe for your favourites (macadamia, cashews, walnuts – your call!).
Want something with a little extra protein? Try adding a couple tbsp’s of our Vegan Vanilla Hemp & Pea Protein. Find the recipe, here.
Lunch & Dinner
These vegan burgers are so easy to make. You don't need any kitchen gadgets like a food processor, you can use a potato masher or your hands to combine all the ingredients.
Play around with ingredients if you wish, adding additional herbs and spices. Add, chilli for a bit of a kick, and if you want your burgers to have a Spanish twist, why not add some smoked paprika? Find the recipe, here.
Hummus and Roast Veg Tarts
Filled with hummus and roasted veggies, these gluten-free, protein-packed tarts are real winners. Pair them with salad or veggies for a comforting plant based dinner or even make mini versions to serve as nutritious canapés at your next dinner party. Find the recipe, here.
Peanut Asian Salad
Everything tastes better with a spoonful of peanut butter right? Although we’re usually throwing it in shakes or spreading it on toast, peanut butter can be a delicious addition to savoury dishes as well. This satay-style Asian salad is a tasty way to get in your greens and will make salads full of soggy lettuce a thing of the past. And the greatest thing about this recipe? If you fancy something a little warmer for dinner, throw it all in a pan and make an epic stir fry instead! Find the recipe, here.
Raw Raspberry and Vanilla Cheesecakes
Healthy living is all about enjoying yourself. You can eat all the kale in the world, but if you’re unhappy, then you might as well be scoffing fries and chocolate bars all day everyday. These vegan vanilla and raspberry protein-packed raw cheesecakes made by The Plantbased Londoner, Megan Hallett, are the ultimate plantbased sweet treat. Find the recipe, here.
Vegan Chocolate Cookies
Although we're advocates for living a healthy lifestyle, we're also all about balance here at Neat, and sometimes a really delicious chocolate chip cookie is exactly what the doctor ordered! This recipe is made using our chocolate vegan protein, is 100% plantbased and can easily be made gluten free; but don't be fooled, they taste just like the real deal! Anyone for (almond) milk and cookies? Find the recipe, here.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Don’t want to wait for those cookies to bake in the oven? We’re big fans of straight-up cookie dough, so we’ve created this indulgent peanut butter, chocolate chip version with a healthy twist. It'll satisfy your sweet tooth whilst fuelling you with a great balance of protein, carbs and healthy fats... dreams really do come true! Find the recipe, here.
