To help support and celebrate Veganuary, Chef Martin has given us his top 5 vegan recipes that he feels belong on everyone’s menus this month – take a look below!

1. Vegan hoisin duck buns

Up first, the vegan Hoisin duck buns! A delicious twist on an Asian favourite, these soft, fluffy, steamed buns are filled with succulent vegan mock duck, which has been marinated in a flavourful hoisin sauce, pickled carrots, toasted sesame seeds and crushed peanuts. Simple, easy and a delicious light-bite or street-food menu option!

2. Mushroom and blue cheese arancini

Second, a mushroom and blue cheese Arancini! A delectable dish that combines crispy, golden-fried risotto balls with a flavourful filling of earthy mushrooms and a creamy blue cheese! To elevate the dish further, we placed the Arancini on top of a rich tomato sauce, then finish with a truffle oil mayonnaise and a crispy vegan bacon snap!

Sprinkle with freshly chopped chives and this makes for the perfect meat free starter option

3. Vegan feta salad

Something a little lighter, a Greek style vegan feta salad. Sounds simple enough but this is a prepared buckwheat salad, with broccoli rice, broad beans and fine garden peas, it is delicious and saves ample of time in the kitchen! Drizzle with a sweet mustard sauce and finish with a Greek style vegan feta!

Perfect as a small side, light lunch or why not add a protein alternative option and allow your customer to level up!
