Vegan diets are becoming increasingly popular and with the #Veganuary revolution, it’s become a lot easier to try this. A lot of restaurants have taken part in this and included a lot more Vegan dishes on their menus. Below is one of our favourite comforting meals, but Vegan. It’s packed full of flavour, veggies and very easy on the bank balance.
