It’s cool to be kind AND it is also actually more cost-effective to eat a plant-based diet, not to mention better for the environment.
Try swapping at least one meat-based meal over to a vegan-friendly dish and weigh it up for yourself.
Here are our favourite vegan cheap eats…
Of course, you can go for a good old tin of beans (we don’t judge here, they are delicious) BUT this recipe is smokey, a little bit more special and high in protein.
It may seem like a lot of ingredients to start with but most, if not all of them are store cupboard staples. Tofu is full of protein and contains all 8 essential amino acids.
A vegan twist on the Mexican classic tortilla soup. Sweet and spicy and SO MANY different topping options.
Lentils are super cheap, easy to cook, really versatile and I think personally totally underrated. If you love a good curry but aren’t quite on board with lentils yet then give this recipe a go.
You can’t beat a comforting bowl of spag bol now, can you?
Make this fresh recipe with either vegan Quorn mince (usual Quorn mince isn’t vegan), lentils or even diced mushrooms.
Everybody favours a different nacho topping, don’t they?
Whether it’s chili con carne, cheese, beans or salsa this nacho recipe with an aubergine queso has it all.
Substitute the egg for vegan-friendly mayo in this recipe and you’ve got a next level avocado on toast.
This lasagne recipe uses minimal ingredients to make it super simple. Feel free to loads it with different types of veggies too. Courgette and peppers work really well in lasagne.
Vegan Sandwich Fillings
I think one of the hardest things about eating more plants based foods is finding a good sarnie filling. Most store-bought sandwiches and wraps whether you are vegan or not are overpriced and bland, so make yours at home…
– Sliced tomatoes, sundried tomato paste, salt, pepper and fresh leaves.
– Vegan ‘bacon’, tomato, lettuce and vegan mayo.
– Hummus, sliced avocado, and cucumber.
– Falafel, chilli sauce (or sweet chilli sauce) lettuce and spring onion.
– Chocolate spread, nut butter and banana.
– Scrambled tofu, mayo, sweetcorn and cress.
– Smashed chickpeas mixed with mayo and red onion.

I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
