Plant-based meat can help you go vegan | Vegan food and drink

Re your correspondent asking why vegans would eat food that resembles meat (Letters, 21 August), I see no contradiction in vegans fancying a plant-based burger or even “ribs” because many now taste as good as the animal alternative and are just as quick and easy to cook. Also, there’s a massive advantage – you don’t have to ask a fellow human being to kill an animal, which seems a bonus. I’m sure plant-based meat is an easy bridge and pathway to a vegan diet, which certainly would have been welcome when I tried veganism in the 1970s.

The Guardian recently reported on Oxford University research on veganism concluded that it will play a much bigger part in stopping the climate catastrophe than once expected.
