A new vegan takeaway is opening its doors in Ashton-On-Ribble.Advertisement
Little Vegan is the new cuisine selling delicious food based on the vegan way of life, a diet that refrains from consuming animal products, such as meat, eggs, dairy products and other animal-derived substances.
Carley Louise Stewart, a childminder, decided to set up the new takeaway from her home on Waterloo Road, providing Preston with a new delicious takeaway option with numerous health benefits – something which is unique to the city.
She plans on moving to a shop premises in the future, but currently, to make an order all you need to do is drop Carley a message on her Facebook Page.

Owner, Carley Louise Stewart, said: “Since becoming a vegan I’ve always found difficulty finding a good takeaway.
“And you always get the same old questions like ‘Well what do you eat?!’ ‘Where do you get your protein from?!’ ‘Oh you can’t have that’.
“So putting two and two together I decided to cook and share with people what vegans really eat!
“I’d post my meals daily and people were in shock at how good plant based food can actually be, and the benefits on your health, the environment and obviously the animals – It’s a ‘win win’ situation.
“So I’d share my food with friends and family, some of whom are also vegan, and they’d say ‘Why can’t there be a takeaway that does food like this?’
“Light bulb moment – due to my current job role I have my food hygiene and a five star grade from environmental health, so I could sell these meals.
“So whilst working around my current job and my kids; I’ve been cooking away and the interest and response I’ve received has been incredible.
“Vegans, veggies, People just wanting a delicious, guilt free, healthy option.”
