We've all stared down a sad, empty fridge at too-late-for-a-supermarket-run-o'clock on a weeknight, willing some higher power to magically replenish the shelves while our eyes are closed.

Veganised recipes can feel like a cop-out; this one works because it's anything but. Like traditional ragú, you spend a lot of time sweating vegetables and browning the base to build flavour; unlike traditional ragú, this one gets its body from several kilos of minced mushrooms and roasted eggplant.
Dogs are omnivores, like humans are, so they can technically survive on a vegan or vegetarian diet, and some even need to in order to address health issues. But transitioning to a meat-free diet isn't right for every dog, so you should consider the following factors before switching your dog to a meat-free diet.
Do you ever have those moments when you just need a warm chocolate chip cookie, but don't feel like making several dozen? I know I do, which is why I am happy to have found this 2-minute cookie recipe from Epicurious.
Switching to a plant-based diet won't mean you're automatically super healthy. You can eat non-dairy ice cream and frozen veggie pizza every day, but that doesn't mean you're any healthier. There are plenty of plant-based junk foods out there, so if you want to reap the benefits of a plant-based diet, you need to commit to focusing your diet on healthy foods.
If you eat a plant-based diet, you don't get an automatic get-out-of-heart-disease-free card. (There's definitely such a thing as vegan junk food.) But a new study that supposedly confirms some plant-based diets are better than others... actually wasn't comparing plant-based diets to each other at all.
The drinking vegan must live a life of constant vigilance. Though beer and wine themselves rarely contain any animal products or byproducts, they're often filtered using isinglass (fish bladders) to remove yeast and other solids. Fortunately, Guinness is moving away from this practice, and vegans can now enjoy a pint of the stout in the comfort of their favourite pub.
"Vegan cheese" is a polarising concept but, if you can view it as a savoury spread rather than "cheese," there are some really tasty non-dairy options out there, including this cashew-based number from Epicurious.
