What people don’t know is that it’s really easy to make and it can save you money making it at home. Plus, you get to choose your own flavour combinations each time you make it! This takes a little while to cook but it is really easy to prep and is a great one to make with the family. Continue reading Recipe: DIY Vegan Granola

Vegan: Easy Chilli sin Carne

Chilli con Carne is a widely loved dish. ‘Con’ meaning ‘with’ we have changed it to Chilli ‘sin’ Carne which means ‘without’. You can have it with rice, in pitta and on top of a jacket potato.
