Ah January… The great celebration and indulgence of Christmas is over, and it is time for us to look to the new year with a healthy eye. Veganuary first came to fruition in 2013, after a conversation between husband and wife Matthew Glover and Jane Land. Since then, a casual thought between two people wondering how they could encourage people to eat less meat has turned into a whole wellness trend, with over half a million people pledging themselves to the movement in 2019.
The Butler’s Pantry Vegan options
Here at The Butler’s Pantry, we want to help you Feed Your Resolution, and we have a delightful range of Vegan treats and meals to help you start 2020 as you mean to go on. From our own kitchen, we are delighted that our creamy and warming Mushroom Stroganoff is free from dairy; it is made with coconut milk and oyster mushrooms, to give you a hearty and filling dish that you may not have known was vegan.
Similarly, we have two delicious and different curry dishes, which dairy and animal product free. Our Thai Vegetable Curry is packed with delicious veggies like mangetout, mixed peppers and cauliflower, all in a Thai coconut sauce for warmth and flavour.
If tomato based curries are more your thing, our Potato, Lentil and Butternut Squash Curry is packed with flavour, and is perfect to fill you up on a cold January day. We also have a scrumptious Falafel Wrap with Mango Chutney for lunch, and the most fantastic, moist and delectable Chocolate and Coconut Vegan cake is sure to satisfy all your chocolatey cravings. As well as all of these delicious treats, many of our soups and salads are dairy free and full of goodness.
Elsewhere, we have some wonderful vegan products from our lovely Irish suppliers, such as Chocolatey Clare chocolate bars, which are dairy free, made by hand in Kimmage, and come in a range of delightful flavours from Salted Peanut to Mint Crème. Also, White Mausu’s range of savoury sauces – Black Bean Rayu and Cashew Crunch – are made in Ireland but have a distinctly Asian flavour, and are perfect for adding to delicious veggie dishes that need a little more vegan oomph!
As if all of this was not enough, we are delighted to stock Rude Health alternative milks, to make your delicious caffeine kick from Silverskin a vegan treat, Nobo chocolate and dairy free ice-cream, Sarah’s Raw Bites, which are packed with raw and vegan ingredients, and a whole host of sauces, condiments and seasonings to make your journey through Veganuary – or a vegan lifestyle – a delicious one. Pop into your local The Butler’s Pantry to find out more.
May your January be full of flavour!
