Vegan Chilli
Print Recipe
This Vegan Chilli Con Carne is made using The Meatless Farm Co's mince, which looks exactly like regular mince in its packet and is available in Sainsbury's. You could use dehydrated soya mince instead, or opt for the various types of "meatless mince" that you can get in many of the bigger supermarkets. This is a fairly simple recipe with a twist; it's got chocolate in it! A secret ingredient that's not so secret anymore. Make this recipe in around 15 minutes!

Servings: sandwiches
Instructions
Vegan Meatballs
  1. Add the soy protein to a bowl and pour over the stock. Allow to soak in for about 5 minutes. Add the tomato puree, soy sauce, breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic powder and herbs and mix well by hand. Form into balls.
  2. Fry in a little olive oil for 10 minutes until browned and crispy.
Marinara
  1. Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, onion, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, oregano and red chilli flake into a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
The Sandwich
  1. Slice a sub roll in half and lay down 2 slices of vegan cheese (like they do in Subway!). The cheese acts as a shield preventing the bread going soggy! Add the meatballs and a tablespoon of marinara per ball. Bake for 5-10 minutes until the bread starts to go crispy. Sprinkle over nutritional yeast and fresh parsley.

Vegan Salami

Vegan Salami
Print Recipe
This vegan salami is made out of seitan, and is perfect for sandwiches or pizza! Similar to the pepperoni recipe, but this has a few different spices, is less dense and is cooked for less time to keep its juiciness. Don't buy the expensive pre-packaged seitan—just make your own for a fraction of the price! This recipe uses tapioca starch to mimic the fatty bits slightly, although it's more of a jelly that aids in holding it together. Use 180ml water instead of 140ml if you choose not to use the tapioca (it's just as good without it).

Instructions
Tapioca
  1. Add the tapioca starch into a bowl and pour in the boiling water. Mix well with a spoon until it becomes a gooey paste. Set aside while you prepare the rest.
The Rest
  1. Add all the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix together with a fork. Add the wet ingredients including the tapioca, and half of the water. Mix well with your hands and slowly add the rest of the water. If it becomes too sticky, add some more vital wheat gluten. Knead for 2-3 minutes and roll out into a thick sausage shape.
  2. Wrap tightly in foil.
  3. Bake for 1 hour in a pre-heated oven at 220°C. Let it cool completely before taking it out of the foil to keep the moisture in (~2-3 hours).
  4. Slice up and enjoy!

Vegan Pepperoni
Print Recipe
This vegan pepperoni is made out of seitan, and is so easy and cheap to make. It's dense, spicy and very tasty! Great on pizza (of course!), in a sandwich or just on its own as a snack! I also have a Vegan Salami recipe which is slightly less dense and juicier, ideal for sandwiches.
