VEGAN COOKERY COMPETITION

VIVA! VEGANISTA IS A NEW COMPETITION FOR PEOPLE LIVING IN THE UK WHO ARE INSPIRED BY VEGAN COOKING AND WHO WANT TO BE RECOGNISED FOR THEIR TALENT.

Enter today! Post a photo of your vegan meal on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #VivaVeganista.

Here, you can find out everything you want to know about becoming a Viva! Veganista, see former entries, weekly and monthly winners and discover lots of inspiration to help shape and make vegan meals.

​From food on-the-go, or a three-course dinner party, we want to see the best vegan cooking from 18’s and over. You don’t have to be vegan or vegetarian to enter – all that is needed is for you to make a vegan meal, dish or snack and take either a picture or a film of it before simply posting it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #VivaVeganista.

Central to the success of the entry is a brief explanation of what the dish is and why you made it: perhaps it was a snack to have on the tube on your way in to work; a Sunday lunch for housemates and family; or a bowl of comforting nosh for days when you feel less than perky.

A judging panel will decide on a weekly winner and all will then go into a shortlist for an overall monthly prize – these final 12 winners will then be our finalists with an overall ‘Viva! Veganista’ being named later in 2017.

Please keep a look out for meals and entries and help spread the #VivaVeganista love!

Geo Organics Vegan Mayo

No self-respecting BBQ’d veggie burger should be eaten without a creamy dollop of Geo Organic’s new range of vegan mayonnaises.

Minvita Organic Sprouted GABA Rice

Stuck on salad duty at your next shindig? Toss aside the limp lettuce and dish up a ravishing rice salad with serious superfood credentials. GABA rice, so-called for the amino acid ‘gamma-aminobutyric’ present, is naturally germinated over 24 hours to encourage the production of vitamins, nutrients and amino acids. While the health benefits are mighty, this grain is a champion companion to any well-dressed salad, thanks to its arrestingly aromatic flavour and firm bite. Minvita’s wholegrain GABA rice trio includes Black, Thai Jasmine and Thai Jasmine with Green Tea. £5.99 - 500g. www.minvita.co.uk Get your recipe rice-spiration from www.veganrecipeclub.org.uk

Crane’s Premium Cranberry Cider

Don’t let the party wilt under the hot summer sun - chill out with Crane’s ciderific homage to the humble cranberry. This 4% alcohol cider is brewed purely from crushed cranberries (no apples in site!) but with added juice for a more fruity, healthier glug. All natural, low in calories (99 calories) and sweetened with just 5g of stevia leaf - the result is a lightly sparkling and not too sweet bubbly bevvie. Available in three distinctive flavours: Original Cranberry, Raspberry & Pomegranate and Strawberry & Kiwi.  A mixed case (12 x 275ml) is £24. www.drinkcranes.co.uk

Huglett’s Wood Large Tray

Made from coated tin, measuring 31.5cm (diameter) x 5cm (height). £20.www.vivashop.org.uk

Sweet Virtues Organic Truffles

Combining a rich dark chocolate base (67%) with complementary exotic ingredients from maca powder and coconut nectar to ginseng and baobab; these luxury power balls pack a nutrient-dense punch with a subtle sweetness. Handily wrapped up in a gorgeous reusable box - bring ‘em along to the beach or hand-over (if you can bare it) as a host/hostess gift. Delight in three mood-boosting flavours: Detox, Energise and Balance. A box of 10 (approx 115g) is £13.95. www.sweetvirtues.co.uk

Bali Nutra Coconut Syrup

Sultry days call for cool treats and what better way to soften the scorch than by serving up bowls of vegan ice cream and fruit bathed in Bali Nutra’s Coconut Syrup. Hailed as a healthier alternative to sugar, this ethically-sourced syrup is made from 100 per cent coconut sap so has retained its essential vitamins and minerals. The caramelly taste and thick consistency make it the crowning glory of any dessert - simply drizzle to your heart’s content. Suitable for use in baking too. £10.59 - 250ml. www.balinutra.com
