‘animal sub-stances and stumbling blocks’ 
on page 19
what is a ‘typical’ veganmeal?
There is no ‘typical’ vegan so this is a difficult questionto answer! Vegans eat the same types of food as therest of the population. Some eat prepacked or fastfood; others eat raw foods; some prefer traditional‘British’ home-cooked meals; while some might live onmore exotic spicy foods or love gourmet food.Vegan versions of all these types of food can be made,so providing you know what type of catering is re-quired, vegan meals can quite easily be prepared.
in with the old ...
A large number of dishes are already vegan, for example many Chinese, African, Asian, Indian andMediterranean vegetarian dishes. Other dishes can bemade vegan simply by making a few minor alterationssuch as replacing butter with vegetable oil or veganmargarine; or cow’s milk with soya or oat milk.

… and embracing the new
There are an increasing number of alternatives toanimal products that make it easy to whip up a veganstorm.The following ingredients are often used in theproduction of vegan foods and are available from thecatering suppliers listed at the back.
useful ingredients
soya, rice and oat milk
These are used as an alternative to cow’s milk byvegans and people with a cow’s milk allergy or intolerance. They have become increasingly popular and can be found in supermarkets and even corner shops.The various brands of non-dairy milk are quite differentin taste so it is worth experimenting. Unsweetenedsoya or oat milk can be used in savoury cooking.Sweetened soya or oat milk is nice in hot drinks and incustard and other sweet dishes. Rice milk tastes goodon its own or on cereal, but the slightly thin consistencyof rice milk means it is not recommended for hot drinks.
other alternatives to dairy
As well as the non-dairy milks above, there are dairy-free replacements for cheese, yoghurt, cream, custardand ice cream.
why vegan?
The three mainreasons for beingvegan are concern for animals, people andthe environment. Other people adopt a vegandiet to help improvetheir health.
