Vegan Calling started as a number of scribbled down notes, recipe cards and our adaptations of favourite meals! We originally wanted to create a place for all these recipes to go so we originally thought of a cookbook. However, an online database allows us to not only avoid various stains and spills, we’re also now able to share our recipes with the rest of the web. Non-Vegan friends that come around for meals are always surprised at how delicious our various starters, main meals, desserts and everything in between taste so good! They’re always asking how we make them so wonderful without using animal products – this site lets them and everyone else know how we do it!
