Meat Free Meals

20170117_17131399Don’t get me wrong, I love a Steak but you don’t have to be a vegetarian or vegan to enjoy a plant based meal, if anything these dishes tend to be more imaginative and bursting with flavour, not to mention healthy and nutritious.

The recipe below is so versatile, enjoy as part of a hearty supper served with mash, caramelised onions and gravy, for breakfast served with beans and grilled tomatoes or for lunch as part of a salad. The great thing about this recipe is that it can be made in batches and frozen.

– 1 Large onion, sliced and diced.
