From vegan food destinations to cooking at home and finding eco-conscious stays, there’s lots on offer in this month’s edition of The Vegan View. Now is definitely a great time to be vegan, especially when the press keeps covering it. Lots of bases are covered below, even in the accidently vegan space.
The humble banana split goes vegan as well as fancy
Gourmet Traveller gave the humble banana split a vegan makeover recently. It only takes 10 minutes to prepare and 6 minutes to cook. But the flavours are nicely shaped. Think – coconut cream and coconut sugar, mint leaves, and macadamia nuts. Break this recipe out for your next dinner party or brunch.

Warsaw is a wonderland for vegans and vegetarians
According to the Matador Network, Warsaw is the place to go if you’re vegetarian. And vegans know that when there is an abundance of vegetarian food there will be a plethora of vegan food, too. According to the article, “Happy Cow ranked Warsaw the ninth best vegan city in the world” last year. Pack your bags, vegan Travellers!
Stay warm with Shannon Martinez’s Tubetti
This dish was originally created by the Smith & Daughters founder to alleviate a hangover. I haven’t drunk in years, but I do know a good winter warmer when I see one. Check this recipe out, featuring Tubetti pasta with braised fennel, radicchio, and chickpeas. I’m sure you can swap the pasta out for a gluten-free option.
Speaking of drinking without the drinking…
The vegan non-alcoholic beer Nort has been around for a couple of years now. But I didn’t realise that this independent brewer brews from Newcastle here in Australia and runs on green energy. Other bonuses? The beer is 99% sugar free and it’s the lowest calorie beer in the country (if this is your thing).
Unfortunately, they don’t have a gluten-free version, but I’m holding out! I hope, one day, a brewer will craft a vegan, GF, and non-alcoholic beer for us who no longer drink. Stay tuned, I guess!
Another vegan-friendly ingredient proves it’s the Soult of the Earth
Soult have recently launched their range of crafted salts which are also supporting men’s mental health. There are a range of flavours that can be added to some of your favourite dishes.
One hundred percent of their profits go to mental health foundations including Healthy Heads Trucks and Sheds, Standby Post Suicide Support, Mental Wheels, and The Healthy Minds Club.
Cauliflower is king over at Good Food
If you like your vegan food that crunches, then check out this Korean fried cauliflower recipe. It just happens to be gluten-free, too!
