Welcome to the new Parsley Soup website! Parsley Soup has been around since 2001 when I first went vegan. It’s hard to imagine now, but there were only a handful of vegan recipe sites back then, and only ONE with UK measurements. It wasn’t difficult to find vegan ingredients, but to eat what I wanted (like chocolate cheesecake, peanut butter cookies and sticky toffee pudding!) I needed to create my own recipes. I wanted to make it easier for other people turning vegan, so ‘Parsley Soup’ was born!
In those days, people considered veganism to be an ‘extreme’ lifestyle. I am absolutely delighted that about 20 years later, veganism has exploded into the mainstream! Businesses (big and small) have responded by launching hundreds of new products, making it simpler than ever before to make the change. Whether you are against animal suffering, wanting to improve your health or seeking to reduce your environmental footprint, you have all the information that you need at your fingertips. It was easy to be vegan back in 2001; now it’s a piece of cake.
