5 easy vegan recipes to try during lockdown – including dinners, snacks and dessert!

1. Toad in the Hole

Tasty vegan sausages surrounded in a golden crisp-on-the-outside, fluffy-on-the-inside Yorkshire pudding style batter.

Prep time is minimal – whisk up a basic batter whilst your sausages cook for a few mins in the oven, add the batter and let it do it’s thing.

Serve it with lashings of gravy (the only way!) and a side of rough mash and peas.

2. Swiss Mac N Cheese With a Crispy Bacon Topping

Macaroni and bite-size potatoes in a creamy, cheesy sauce. It’s topped with crispy fried ‘bacon’ and onions, and traditionally served with a side of homemade apple sauce.

Inspired by a trip to Geneva, this dish takes just 30 minutes from start to finish.
