Something I did some years ago, inspired by a blog - sadly now long gone, was to try a new recipe each week with the idea that by the end of the year I would have a collection of 52 new meals/bakes or flops for me to return to (or avoid!).
Admittedly I did not manage all 52 weeks but by the end of the year, I did have a considerably revamped meal plan of which a number of recipes remain favourites and are still part of the menu.
However, I get bored with cooking - it is something I do so that we can eat, not something I do because I am good at it or actually enjoy doing.
We eat to live rather than live to eat.
Any hoo - I decided I would give this another go. Himself has decided that as a moderate omnivore living with a full time vegetarian (me) that he might as well fully commit to being vegetarian too. This gave me added incentive to look for new recipes and I found THIS .
The 'Ultimate VEGAN Breakfast' - no don't look away and tut tut, vegan food can be surprisingly 'normal' and not at all artsy or complicated. My only concession to the ingredients was to swap out the baked beans (something I just can...not...eat...) for cannelloni beans and added sliced bell pepper and cherry tomatoes. It makes a flavoursome and satisfying meal and seeing that our token raving carnivore (my youngest son) scoffed it in record time then asked for the recipe to be sent to his equally raving carnivore lovely gf, confirms my initial statement - vegan food can be surprisingly 'normal'.
I will store all my new recipes as I go along HERE and if you like what you see, feel free to follow the links and try them for yourself 🥑😊🧅. If you fancy trying a new recipe too - let me know because I will be on the look out for new and tasty meals and baking !
