Meat Free Mondays - 7 Recipes for the Week Ahead (16 January 2017)

Happy Monday everyone. I hope your week has started well.

Mine hasn't! I'm totally fed up. I have been mostly bed bound for 11 days now with a damaged knee. I'm really over it now and just want to get back to normal. I'm up and about for a little while each day now, but my knee soon protests if I do too much. You may have noticed my blog has been rather quiet. Sigh!

Anyway enough of all that, it's Monday and that means I have a selection of new and utterly delicious vegetarian recipes to share with you.

It's called Vegan in 15 and is available from Amazon. 

Thanks to everyone who created a recipe for us this week.
