Meat Free Mondays - 7 Recipes for the Week Ahead (17 April 2017)

Happy Easter my friends. I hope you had a fun and chocolate filled Easter Sunday.

I'm sorry to say my Sunday was spent indoors. I've been suffering from a chest infection this week and because I have asthma, I've been rather poorly, although I haven't given up and gone to bed. 

I've actually spent a lot of time cooking this week and today I made a big pot of chilli (Cooper's favourite) and a trifle. Did I tell you that Hartley's glitter jelly is veggie? It's really good and makes a firm jelly.

Cooper was at his grandparent;s house this weekend, where no doubt he was spoiled rotten and Graham has been a star, helping me with some housework, shopping and walking the dogs.

Now Monday is here, Cooper is back at school, I'm at work and lucky Graham is off today and hopefully doing some more housework for me, but as it's Monday I have another seven sensational veggie dishes for you to try (and a few bonus recipes) in honour of Meat Free Monday.

  1. Hi Jacqueline! Sorry to hear you've been poorly, hope you are feeling better. Thank you so much for featuring my casserole! I haven't got anything to add yet as I've been busy posting light desserty Easter type stuff, so I'll be back later on this week once I've got a new recipe on the blog.

    1. I'm still struggling a bit but thanks. I'll look forward to seeing what you come up with. Have a good week!

  2. Happy easter jac - lovely recipes as usual - I want to make them all! And we have got a veggie glitter jelly here but it is not quite as firm as I had hoped but it might just be my inexperience making jelly - the second batch was better and that was as much jelly as I could muster interest in - too much else that I love to play with! But I did wonder how it would be with trifle - hope you might be sharing yours!

    1. I was actually surprised it come out so firm. I wasn't up for creating anything fancy as exhausted as I am. It was just Madeira cake, topped with slices of peach, then I poured over the glitter jelly Let it set, next custard, then whipped cream and finished with chocolate sprinkles. For Graham I made little individual dessert. The jelly and fruit topped with dairy free yoghurt and sprinkles. He enjoyed it too.

  3. Happy Easter and hope you feel better soon! Thank you so much for including my soup in this lovely roundup of recipes (look at these pizzas, they look fabulous!) :) Have a great week!

    1. Thanks Jo and thanks for joining in. Yes the pizza looks great.

  4. I'm sorry you're not feeling well Jac. I hope it gets under control quickly.
    Thanks for featuring my one pot pasta! All the recipes look delicious and that carrot pizza is so cool!
