Vegan Groups


By: Samantha

The vegan community is one that you either love or hate whether you are vegan or not, as vegans have a bad rep of being overly-judgemental and lacking compassion for fellow humans. Militant veganism turns so many people away from veganism and makes others uncomfortable publicly identifying as ‘vegan.’ It’s sad.

This impression of vegans is one I know to be true. However, it’s not true for every vegan and I have come to realise that by not just seeing that I am not a disrespectful, judgemental, hateful and inconsiderate vegan, but a loving one and one willing to hold a peaceful discussion or debate instead of yelling or preaching someone down just like many other vegans out there.

Kiwi Jam


It is true that here at LickYourPlates, we can make almost any fruit into a sugar-free jam.

Recently, we had a lot of kiwis which would have otherwise have gone off if they weren’t all used up or cooked quickly so, we took it upon ourselves to develop a recipe using them and that’s how this recipe was formed.

This furry fruit is a great source of folate (vitamin B-9) vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, copper, fibre, manganese, potassium. It also contains calcium, iron, and omega-3 from the chia seeds making it, not just a delicious jam to have on toast or desserts, but a very healthy one too.

Without further ado, here’s our delicious green kiwi jam recipe!

Bon Appétit!

Pizza Bianco


Vegans have been known for ordering or making pizza without cheese. How about pizza without tomato sauce? No, we are not suggesting you eat just dry pizza bread with vegetables. We are suggesting you go white with your pizza sauce.

Pizza Bianco is made using a white sauce in place of tomato sauce. Usually, this sauce tends to be soft, melted Italian cheeses, but of course, vegans can’t eat that. So, we have developed a white sauce for you so you don’t have to be deprived of a pizza bianco which is very delicious and relaxing to indulge in.

The pizza is topped with fresh, homemade seitan sausage slices, potatoes, rosemary, mushrooms, and onions. It’s pretty much, brunch on a pizza base!

We invite you to try out our latest pizza recipe.

Bon Appétit!

Unboxed Vegan


Are you vegan, do you follow a predominantly vegan diet, are you curious about veganism or do you just want to try something new?

Going vegan can be a bit of a pain. We can say that. It makes shopping longer as ingredients need to be read over and over again and more often than most of us choose to admit, we accidentally pick up something non-vegan.

What if we told you that the transition to veganism and maintenance of a vegan lifestyle could be made easier? Continue reading “Unboxed Vegan”

Marinated Mushrooms


This dish is, in fact, that which is featured on our homepage. It was a big hit amongst friends and family when we initially experimented with the recipe.

This marinated mushroom dish has a special ingredient which most might not have thought of. The flavours together are perfectly balanced and the result is a side which can go along with any dish, on its own as a light lunch or as a part of a sandwich.

We have looked forward to sharing this dish with you.

Bon Appétit!

Vegan Banana Bread


Banana bread is one of the most delicious breads we have tasted. It is moist, it is delicious, it has a higher nutritional content than the conventional bread, contains over 50g of protein (per loaf) and it does not require a topping such as butter or jam.

This bread works well for breakfast, as a snack and as a dessert. It can be frozen for later consumption and it keeps in the fridge for about a week (although it might harden a little when lower than room temperature).

Our banana bread recipe is perfect for any day and anytime so, without further ado, here’s our recipe.

Bon Appétit!

Upside Down Orange Cake (+ Marmalade Recipe)

The texture of this cake is rather different from that of a regular cake. It is moist with a smooth, soft texture that blends in with the texture of apples baked in a batter. The flavours are all balanced perfectly. This cake is just wonderful!

So, without further ado, here is the recipe!

Bon Appétit!

Nigerian Fried Rice


I am not saying this out of bias, but Nigerians make one of the best fried rice dishes in the world!

Nigerian fried rice is so easy to make, yet it tastes so good. It is easily adaptable for a vegan. However, unlike quite a number of foods, you do not lose the flavour by making the recipe vegan! Isn’t that just wonderful!

I am going to take you down to my West African roots with this vegan version of the wonderful, the beautiful, Nigerian fried rice.

Bon Appétit!
