Give them a try and let me know what you think. Ingredients ½ cup quinoa flakes ½ cup gluten free ...

Vegan, gluten free protein boosted Black Bean Chilli

This vegan chilli is gluten free and packed full of protein! As a family we make an effort to eat vegan two or three days a week but with a very sporty teenager in the house I like to know we’re keeping up with our protein intake too.

Butternut Squash Curry with Cauliflower Rice

This is my go to recipe when I have a Vegan friend coming for ‘kitchen table’ supper. That makes me sound really posh, as if we had supper at a different table to the kitchen table quite often. We don’t. We used to have a separate dining room but, to be honest, it rarely got used to dining and when it did I felt the pressure to put on a four course spread with fancy napkins and all the trimmings ...

Carrot, Coriander and Red Lentil Soup

I love soup and it’s a super filling soup for the coldest of days. Lentils are really healthy and a great source of protein so I often add them to salad, soups and make them into pates. The soup is especially good if you’re not much of a cook or just want something really quick and simple but that tastes delicious too.
