Hannah Morris, a third year student at KU, started her vegan journey four years ago in college, after being inspired by an art project about the meat industry.

Prior to being vegan, Hannah followed a vegetarian diet for five years but decided to pursue veganism.

If you are thining of trying it, she has some of her favourite dishes and suggestions to offer.

When she first started her vegan journey Hannah said: “It was quite grim.”

She explained that it was due to the fact that she didn’t know how to cook vegan foods but she soon found things she loved.

Tofu was hard to cook for her to cook at first with its soft and fragile texture, she wasn’t used to it and would often end up with tofu mush.

But now tofu is one of her favourites and she frequently uses it for her dishes.

“Once you know how to season the food well, it all tastes good.” she said.

Hannah loves Veganuary: “It’s quite exciting as everywhere turns into this vegan heaven.”

many restaurants have vegan options and with Wagamama known for its 50% plant-based menu, Hannah said she wants to try their new Veganuary dish the vegan ‘chicken’ kare lomen.

As Veganuary comes to an end and many people go back to eating meat, perhaps some of Hannah’s favourites might inspire you to continue the habit.
