This recipe is adapted from a recipe published by the Vegetarian Society for their theme of ‘Share’ for this year’s National Vegetarian Week. It was pretty simple to cook, filling and very tasty – perfect for sharing, in fact.
And to celebrate the week, DON’T FORGET to make a comment on the site to be in with a chance of winning a copy of Early Vegetarian Recipes!
