Discover a world of healthy vegetarian and vegan food
Here at Suma Wholefoods we have been sourcing and distributing wholefoods since 1977. We have always been a vegetarian company – it’s one of our core values – and we are passionate about food.
Need inspiration in the kitchen? We are proud to feature the recipes of Steve Dent aka “The Circus Gardener”, a self-taught cook and an organic grower of fruit and vegetables. Steve has been creating delicious recipes for Suma since 2014 and as a vegetarian workers’ co-operative we share his values.
Steve’s writing is both educational and inspiring, providing his readers with the confidence to grow their own and to cook from scratch. From his involvement in community garden projects to food waste projects, Steve gently encourages us all to get more connected to the food we eat.
He’s a sharer of ideas and knowledge, empowering us to learn new skills and new ways to think about self-sufficiency, sustainability, community and the impact of our choices on the environment.
Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or taking the first step to reduce your meat consumption, Circus Gardener has a wealth of high quality, nutritious vegetarian recipes for you to try, often using fresh, seasonal and locally produced, organic ingredients.
