I haven’t created enough vegetarian recipes on the blog as of yet, so I thought it was about time, especially as I get requests quite often. Some people think vegetarian food is boring and not exciting, however I’m not one of those people! I think it’s to do with being brought up, meat was always the centre-piece and to many, without it something was missing.
This recipe makes for a perfect lunchtime snack and can be enjoyed hot or cold. The salsa is completely fresh and can be stored for a few more days after cooking (just keep it in an air-tight container). I’m sure this recipe and many up-and-coming meatless dishes will make you think very differently about vegetarian food! Enjoy x
