What is a 'typical' vegan meal?
There is no 'typical' vegan so this is a difficult question to answer! Vegans eat the same types of food as the rest of the population. Some eat packaged or fast food; others eat raw foods; some prefer traditional 'British' home-cooked meals; while some may live on more 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 required, 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 and Mediterranean vegetarian dishes. Other dishes can be made vegan simply by making a few minor alterations such as replacing butter with vegetable oil or vegan margarine, or cows' milk with soya or oat milk.
