First up are Cauldron Foods who make my favourite veggie sausages (and Saturday mornings would not be the same without hot sausage sarnies in thickly-sliced, fresh crusty white bread with mustard and tomato sauce…) Ok, ok, moving on, they now produce a rather tasty vegetable roast. It’s a combination of chickpeas and sweet potato and is less than 5% fat, which should meet the approval of our resident nutritionist Jill Pitt.
On opening it looked just like an uncooked haggis which is a little unappealing for us veggies, but it despite this unpromising start; it was very tasty, kept its shape and sliced up well. You can freeze it and there’s enough for about four people.
Great for non-cooks, people not used to cooking for vegetarians/vegans who need a Sunday lunch option or for those in hurry!
