Vegfest came to London on the 20-21 October and it did not disappoint. It’s crazy how busy these things get now that vegan has hit the mainstream. There were so many stalls covering beauty, food, health, clothes, accessories, art work and more. It was a big celebration of veganism and compassion. With many vegan celebs in attendance (Fat Gay Vegan, Earthling Ed, Evanna Lynch, King Cook Daily) I was absolutely ecstatic when I bumped into Tim Shieff, the vegan free runner that’s done recipes with Jamie Oliver, has had huge achievements on Ninja Warrior and has had his bum on the cover of Viva! magazine.

Nothing gets me in the mood for sweet potatoes quite like the start of Autumn. Sweet potatoes are great because they are cheap, easily available, tasty and really good for you. They’re great for your immune system as they contain good amounts of vitamin A, iron and potassium. They’re high in dietary fibre which aids digestion and can help with weight loss. I’ve sourced together some of my favourite recipes which will hopefully inspire you to cook more with sweet potato.
Curries are one of the easiest ways to introduce sweet potatoes into your diet. This one pot curry is nice and simple yet full of flavour. This recipe is totally popular with omnivores as well as vegans – great for impressing friends!
