On My Menu

I often find myself stuck in a rut of preparing the same few meals over and over again, particularly when I’m in a rush or want something quickly. I initially put together this list of possible meals for my own personal use, but I thought that some of you may find it a useful source of inspiration if you’re stuck for new ideas too. They’re all vegan, quite quick to make and use ingredients that you’re likely to already have in your cupboards, so enjoy!
