Vegan ACT's 30 Day Go Vegan Challenge

Hi <<First Name>>! 

WELCOME TO DAY SEVEN!

WOW! Nearly finished your first week being vegan!


 

Kym's advice for day seven:
 
Weddings. Always a wonderful occasion with friends celebrating life and love! But don't starve, be prepared. Even if those getting married know that you are vegan, they have million-and-one things to think about to get ready for the big event, so don't expect them to think of the small issue of having vegan options. The best approach is to contact the venue directly a few days in advance and let them know that you will need a vegan meal. That way you don't have to add any more stress to the bride and groom-to-be or chase anything up. Its also a good idea to bring a couple of snacks - some fruit and nuts for example - just in case there is shortage of options there, but with a bit of luck the fancy venue will bring you a delicious and amazing vegan creation that will impress the rest of your table and give you a chance to start up an interesting conversation about the benefits of going vegan - and with all the nutrients and carbs you'll be carving it up on the dance floor and partying into the wee hours. 


TODAYS ASSIGNMENT:

Cassie's recipe idea for day seven:

Broad Bean, Mint and Lime Dip
Makes 2 cups
Ingredients
500g bag frozen broad beans
2 tbsp coconut cream
1 clove garlic
¼ cup mint leaves
¼ cup olive oil
2 tsp flaked salt
Juice 1 lime
1 tbsp cold water (if it needs it)
10 second crack of black pepper (weird I know)
  1. Place the broad beans into a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water for 4 minutes. Drain and cover with cold water. Drain again and peel off the tough outer skin.
  2. Using a food processor, place the broad beans, coconut cream, garlic, mint, olive oil, salt, lime juice and black pepper into the processing bowl and pulse or blend until it forms a smooth and consistent paste, approximately 60 seconds.
  3. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and sour dough chips or carrot sticks.
