19 brilliant vegan recipes – from orange poppy seed cake to ‘smoked salmon’


Orange poppy seed cake

This cake has passed the vigorous “visiting non-vegan children” test with flying colours. Preheat the oven to 180C. In a bowl, stir together 375g (1½ cups) plain flour, 190g (¾ cup) sugar, 2 tsp baking powder, ¼ tsp salt, 1½ tbsp poppy seeds and 125g (½ cup) almond meal (or finely chopped almonds). Add 190g soy milk, 2 tsp orange extract, the zest of 1 orange, 60g (¼ cup) olive oil and egg substitute equal to 1 egg, then stir together gently until just mixed. Pour into a lightly oiled 20cm (8in) cake pan and bake for 25-30 min, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Make an orange icing using icing sugar and some of the orange’s juice, then spread over the cooled cake. Simon Perry, cyber-sales trainer, New South Wales, Australia

Chocolate overnight oats with blueberries

This recipe is convenient, as you can make it the night before and your breakfast is ready and waiting in the morning. Mix equal parts oats and dairy-free milk (I use oat milk) with 1 tbsp cocoa powder, some chopped walnuts, 2 tsp date syrup (you can make this by soaking dates in hot water and then blending) and frozen blueberries, then refrigerate overnight. You can also make a delicious chocolate orange version by using orange juice in place of some or all of the milk. Jodie, chef and lampshade maker, Brighton
