If you’re looking for planet-friendly options to taste test this Visa Wellington Ona Plate, I've got the list for you!With a wide range of plant-based options at this year's festival, and the new vegan filter to easily locate the nourishing goodness, there are many vegan friendly options available this August. So, the question is, which should you taste test first? Here are five delicious dishes you won't want to miss...

1/ Reduce your waste with Seed to skin

Pasta that’s cruelty free, low waste and helps plant trees for future generations? Sign me up! Beach Babylon's dine dish Pumpkin and dairy-free Bongusto mascarpone ravioli has been curated with low carbon emissions and low food waste principles in mind–making it environmentally–and tastefully guilt free.

2/ Prepare for take-off at Mockingbird

I don’t know about you, but when I’m craving a nourishing vegan meal, I don’t automatically think of plane food...however Mockingbird's dine dish ‘Prepare for take-off’ may just change our minds! With a plant-powered plate full of international cuisines it’s hard to resist a taste test of the Plan*t mince samboosas and smoked eggplant dip. 

3/ Taste test The Spanish Vegan Burger at Seize

If, like me, you’re dreaming of a European summer in the Spanish'll want grab a bite of the The Spanish Vegan burger at Seize Wellington. The Vegan chorizo patty comes with tomato, red onion and lime salsa, chipotle mayonnaise and guacamole. Transporting you across the world flavour wise–without having to stand on those dreaded airport queues!

4/ Bite into the Bean There, Done Bap at Whistling Sisters

I’ll be grabbing a ‘booch and a bap this month at Whistling Sisters, with their kidney and black chickpea burger. Served with smoked garlic chutney, pickled onions and coconut yoghurt dressing in a Brezelmania bap. Protein packed, plant based and potentially my favourite burger of the bunch!

5/ Soak in the Plant Power by Bangs

Listen up groovy planty peeps, Burger Liquor Wellington are going plant-powered after being inspiredbythe hippie movement of the 60's. With 'fast & fun' food and cocktails inspired by peace, love and the hemprevolution, it’s fully plant-based event-therfore one not to miss this August!
