In Season Vegan: November

 

It’s November: fireworks explode across the sky, briefly staving off the creeping darkness. The air turns almost icy, nipping at our fingers and catching our breath. The first of the winter colds set in and my body ramps up the temperature, leaving me shattered.

 

Warming soups and spicy casseroles help keep the cold at bay. Some nights I am hard at work, slaving away at the stockpot cooking enough soup to feed a small army. The rest of the time I cwtch down, under throw or duvet, wishing I had thicker socks. This is November.

Why you should be eating the seasons.

 

When food isn’t in season, it has to be forced in energy guzzling hothouses or shipped in from overseas. This isn’t only bad for our planet: the fruit and veg taste best when they are at their natural peak. It is widely believed that fruit and veg that is in season retains more of its nutritional value as it hasn’t spent weeks being transported across the globe.

 


In short: it tastes better, it’s better for our planet, it’s better for our bodies… and guess what? It’s often better for our wallets too.

The best vegan recipes that are in season in November.

 

These are my top picks this month: a few of them I’ve already tried. The rest are on my list to make this month. Each recipe is warming, comforting and perfect to see you through the Autumn.

 

  • Finally! A vegan version of Cauliflower Cheese I can sink my teeth into! This recipe is very close to the non-vegan one, which is alright by me. Less fuss makes me a happy mum!
  • This Easy Vegan Pumpkin Pie is my idea of heaven! This recipe is simple and delicious, there are no stupidly fancy or expensive ingredients and the pie is not overly sweetened. In short, it ticks all of my boxes. Pumpkin pie is definitely on next week’s meal plan!
  • We’re tentatively trying out vegan roasts and sides ready for Christmas. I’m so glad I came across this swede and carrot mash: would it be Christmas dinner without it?

  • This vegan paneer and butternut squash curry from Captain Bobcat is really making my mouth water. Anyone know where I can find vegan paneer?
  • Halloween might be over but that doesn’t mean these pumpkin spice muffins from This Enchanted Pixie should disappear off the menu.
  • As always, my Vegetable Curry will be on the menu. This month it will most likely feature masses of cauliflower, something I only ever seem to eat at this time of year!
  • This beetroot chutney from Buckets of Tea looks like the perfect seasonal addition to the vegan burger menu.
