It’s Monday and this week I have decided to relaunch my neglected Meat Free Monday blog spot because I miss it!  If you are new here I am a veggie wife to a veggie man and mum to four vegetarian children. I decided to run this meat free slot after requests from followers here and on Twitter and as a showcase for some of my veggie and vegan recipes. It seemed to make sense to run it on a Monday as part of the Meat Free Monday campaign and I aim to post recipes which are easy and family friendly. For more vegetarian food ideas please visit my ‘other place’ Life Is Delicious!

This week a winter warmer, hearty and substantial, good old comfort food.
