Warning- this was written by a very hungover vegan- apologies if it doesn’t make much sense…

I think one of the main misconceptions people have about vegans is that they are all a bunch of boring, party pooping, teetotallers. However, this vegan is not one of them. Going vegan doesn’t mean that you have to give up your social life, if you like to party then party, drink what you want (as long as it’s not harming any animals) and feel absolutely awful the next day. Have a look at this great website that has a list of what alcohol you can drink if you are vegan- pretty much if it’s a spirt you are safe. Here is my ultimate vegan hangover cure… And no, we don’t miss bacon but we do get hangovers.

Ingredients

For the Avo on Toast:

  • ½ an avocado
  • A pinch of salt
  • Dried chili flakes
  • A squeeze of lime juice

For the mushrooms:

  • ½ a box of mushrooms (you can use any but I like chestnut or Portobello)
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • A splash of olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

For the beans:

  • 1 a can of your favourite beans (I like black eyed)
  • ½ a can of chopped tomatoes
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tsp of paprika
  • 1 tsp of dried oregano
  • 1 tsp of sugar
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • A splash of olive oil

For the hash browns:

  • 3 oven bake hash browns.

Most of the time they are cooked in sunflower oil so you are normal okay just check the ingredients list for milk and eggs before you buy them. Alternatively, you can make your own, Deliciously Ella has a great recipe in her book but they are a bit of a faff to make- not the best idea when you are hanging.

Method

  1. While you are cooking, it’s a great idea to rehydrate so, pour yourself a pint of water and a big glass of orange juice to get some vitamins back into you, it will make you feel a lot better…. Trust me on this one!
  2. Heat your oven to 200°C and put your hash browns in to cook.
  3. Chop your six cloves of garlic into small chunks, put one half into a small frying pan and the other in a sauce pan with some olive oil.
  4. Fry the garlic on a low heat until soft.
  5. While the garlic is frying you can chop up your mushrooms and then add them to the frying pan.
  6. Stir them around and let them get coated in the oil, lower the heat and add a little water so they don’t burn.
  7. You can now leave them to simmer for 10-15 minuets (or until they are soft). Make sure you stir them every now and then.
  8. Then add ½ a tin of tomatoes and the can of beans to the small sauce pan
  9. Add the spices and sugar and leave to simmer on a medium heat until the tomato sauce has reduced.
  10. You can now toast the bread. (If you are feeling extra garlicy, peal a raw clove of garlic and rub it on the toast before you add the avocado).
  11. Then, smash the avocado onto the toast with a fork and sprinkle with salt, chili and lime juice.
  12. Once everything is cooked shove it on a plate and munch until you can’t move…
  13. Have a nap.
