“Looking at the events diary for award-winning social enterprise Veggies – and noting they are catering at Glastonbury, myriad campaign rallies and eco-events – it’s hard to believe they started out with just a camping stove and store-bought packets of vegan burger mix”

So starts “Campaign Catering” the Veggies feature by Kelly Rose Bradford in the March 2015 edion of Vegetarian Living, “the UK’s best-selling, award-winning vegetarian magazine”.

Veggies feature in Vegetarian LivingVeggies DiaryAs well as documenting the 30 year history of Veggies it is great to see a diary listing featuring key events on Veggies’ 2015 Tour:

From the British Juggling Convention at the end of March, through the Belper Goes Green Eco Festival, the Great Yorkshire Vegan Festival and Peace in the Park, continuing with Nottingham Green Festival, and the Northern and West Midlands Vegan Festivals, before ending with December’s Animal Aid Christmas Fair.

On the road…

Buddha Bowl Van

Veggies isn’t the the only campaigning vegan caterer in the magazine. Camden-based, Wholefood Heaven, and their Buddha Bowl – winner of the British Street Food Award and a favourite of Billy Bragg at Glastonbury – are also featured, together with their Massaman Curry recipe.

Meanwhile the The Vegan Society has noted that “all the recipes in @VLmagazine this month are #vegan… we hope that this will be a continuous trend!” This is even more impressive when you note that there are almost 50 recipes, often with everyday ingredients, clear instructions and glorious photography.

‘Beer-battered tofu ‘fish’ and chips with tartare sauce and mushy peas’ looks ideal for our ‘Something Fishy‘ trailer, and ‘roasted red pepper and paprika hummus’ provides an interesting twist on a Veggies Buffet favourite.

Vegetarian Living can be found in “selected Asda, Boots, Budgens/Londis, Eason, M&S, Morrisons, WHSmith, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Waitrose and all good newsagents across the UK”, but we had to cross London before finding a good stack at WHSmith, Waterloo Station .
