1. Vegan Mac ‘N’ Cheese

Serves 4

Mac ‘n’ cheese is just top tier comfort food, end of. It’s essential for those days where you just crave something warm and hearty to cheer you up (and fill you up!)

Here’s our vegan version of this classic dish — it’s every bit as indulgent-tasting, trust us.

This fakeaway favourite is perfect for an extra special lunch — perfect if you need a little pick-me-up to get you through a Friday of working from home.

Deliciously rich and “meaty” this sub is packed with nearly 30g of protein per serving, making it a super-tasty way to support your training progress.

4. Smoky Chickpea Stew

Delicious meals don’t always have to have fancy ingredients — this smoky chickpea stew is full of flavour and you probably already have the ingredients in your cupboard.

We think it’s absolutely perfect when paired with some thick, crusty bread. Simple, comforting home-cooking done right.
