The Festive Vegan & Plant Powered Show is coming up at the end of the month (save the date for the 28 November) and one of their key sponsors Knorr has shared this delicious plant powered recipe for Tomato, Basil and Celery Popsicles to give us some inspiration.

Knorr spokesperson Chrislynn Ramdeo explains: “We need to change the plate of our nation because as Winston Churchill once said: healthy citizens are the greatest asset a country can have. Knorr is encouraging South Africans to choose to eat better by championing dietary diversity and more plant- based meals. Knorr wants to make healthy eating more accessible for all.”
