The ‘Tuna’ Mayo Sandwich

by Anda Mtshemla

By the time I can sit down to enjoy lunch, it’s usually too close to dinner to whip up anything fancy, but it’s too early for dinner but I’m too hungry to wait. This easy mock tuna mix is great for that in-between meals time (or anytime) and will keep you satiated until your next meal.

PREP TIME: 10mins  COOK TIME: 0mins MAKES: 3-4

You will need:

2 slices of bread

4 tablespoons vegan mayo 

1 can chickpeas

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

1 stalk of celery, chopped

1 tomato, diced

kelp/nori (optional)

Method:

Pop the bread into the toaster and mash your chickpeas while it toasts

Once your chickpeas are mashed (it doesn’t have to be perfect, a few whole chickpeas will give the mix some texture), add your mayo, kelp, salt, pepper and celery

Spread the mix onto a slice of the toasted bread and sprinkle the diced tomatoes over top

Crack on a bit of salt and pepper if desired

The 3-Ingredient Vegan McFlurry

by Anda Mtshemla

Believe it or not, “Milk’s Favourite Cookie” contains no milk. Or eggs. Or butter. Or any animal products at all, in fact, making them vegan-friendly. Many people’s favourite Oreo recipe, McDonald’s innovative take on famed “cookies ‘n cream” ice cream, is not vegan. But we can fix that.

PREP TIME: Overnight  COOK TIME: 5mins  MAKES: 2 servings

You will need:

4 frozen bananas

1 tsp vanilla essence

6 Oreos, crushed

Method:

Place frozen bananas in blender and blend until smooth and creamy

Add vanilla essence and blend until combined

Add crushed Oreos and pulse until combined

Transfer to mug or bowl and serve

Yup. Just bananas.

NOTE: Keep in mind that this recipe should be enjoyed immediately as the “ice cream” will lose its creamy texture as the bananas thaw
