Indian Snacky Lunch
Most Indian vegetarian snacks - vegetable samosas, onion bhajis and pakoras - are vegan. They make a delicious lunch, eaten cold on the go or warmed through and served with vegan yoghurt, salad and the like. They are widely available too, with most supermarkets selling mixed packs or individual items. Just read the labels, as ever. Just avoid those with dairy yoghurt dips!
If you're interested in the nutrition side of things, both gram flour (the bhajis) and wheat flour are both good sources of protein, iron and such. On the down side, they are fried...!
1 serving of Indian snacks, depending on how hungry you are!
Vegan yoghurt (Sojade, natural is sugar-free) , chutney and salad to serve.
1. If eating warm, heat the oven to 180oC/350oF/Gas Mark 4. Place the snacks on a tray and bake for 10-12 minutes or until piping hot.
2. They can be microwaved for a minute or two also but won't be quite so good.
3. Serve with mango chutney, plain vegan yoghurt and a big green salad.
