Vegab Pumpkin, Ginger and Apple Soup

There’s more to pumpkins than Halloween, or if you are sick looking at pumpkins, try this with butternut squash.  The ginger and cardamom give this an exotic twist, and some much needed taste to the boring old pumpkin.

Vegan Sweet Potato & Sweetcorn Chowder

Sweet potatoes are a healthy alternative to the traditional potato and also gives this soup some depth, colour and a delicious taste.   I’m a big fan of sweetcorn so in it went as well. This is a good base soup for something more substantial. Add meat, seafood or tofu for a main course

Vegan Glamorgan Sausages

This recipe uses vegan cheddar and vegan parmesan for a dairy-free alternative.  These made a filling lunch but would also make a good starter.    The shell of the leek acts as a sausage skin holding in the cheesy filling.  Click here for the recipe for leek, kale and sweet potato
