Meat Free Mondays - 7 Recipes for the Week Ahead (4 January 2016)


Meat Free Mondays is back after a Christmas and New Year break. We had such a wonderful Christmas. Cooper's grandparents flew over from Cyprus, it was so lovely to see them.We also spent time with my parents, cousins and friends. So many presents, lots of Lego building and Monopoly playing and so much food and drink all round. 

The photo above is my starter on Boxing Day at a local Italian Restaurant. We ate out on Christmas Day and Boxing Day this year. Something we've never done before.

It's time to get back to normal and we start here with a new selection of veggie and vegan recipes for you to try this week.
