The festive season just gone may not have been normal (as in we weren’t eating and drinking out to excess) but if you do want to rein it in a bit or you just want to switch up your delivery game, January is the perfect time to try cutting down on meat and dairy. Luckily going vegan, whether it’s just for the month or for the whole year, doesn’t have to mean eating leaves thanks to these Veganuary specials.
Crosstown x Max La Manna Bread Pudding
Crosstown has teamed up with zero waste chef and author Max La Manna to create this bread pudding, made from leftover vegan sourdough doughnuts. The leftover doughnuts have been reworked into a pud, with the additions of forced rhubarb, almond crumble and oat milk custard, and it’s part-baked so you just need to finish it off in the oven at home. Not only is it vegan and zero waste, 15% of the sales of each pudding are being donated to The Felix Project, so it’s doing good too.
Available at Crosstown
