Why vegan recipes? It's just so much easier to please everyone all the time - the great thing about vegan recipes is that you don't need to be vegan to enjoy them. If they are tasty, delicious and fulfilling enough then everyone can enjoy them no matter who they are, not just the vegetarians and vegans and people with dietary and religious food intolerances.

A chocolate cake just doesn't need all that saturated fat and an egg to make it fluffy, gooey and delicious if you are clever.
