Roast Root Vegetable Platter [GF DF EF NF VEG V]The perfect side dish for almost everything - especially now the weather is turning cooler! Make a big platter of this, and store the excess in the fridge, this makes a great base for lunch the next day (add to an omelette, throw some fresh salad ingredients through them etc), or add them into a meal the next night - one meal, two nights! I have only put 4 servings up because reality is, that it is up to you how many vegetables you prepare, I am sharing with you how many I chopped up, but it does make a lot!
This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and nut-free; it is also safe for those who follow a vegan diet.Lentil & Blackbean Tacos [GF DF EF NF VEG V]This is a real 'comfort food', and tastes great! I found the original idea in the book "Plant-Based Meal Prep" by Stephanie Tornatore and Adam Bannon; but I have obviously put my own twist on it! It is such a quick and easy dinner, that can literally be made in 20 minutes flat! I made a large portion, to make sure there were left over's for lunch the next day - so this makes enough for 6, you can cut out a tin of lentils if this is too much!

I have literally tried every combination when it comes to fruit and spices, so have some fun with whatever you have on hand in your kitchen! My husband will have these for breakfast, lunch and snacks - I only make them the normal size, but I suspect if you make them in the big muffin trays, they would make an ideal quick and easy breakfast!

It is so good, that I had to share it with you all as a separate recipe!
This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free; it is also safe for those who follow a vegetarian diet, and can be adapted for a vegan diet by leaving out the egg (won't change the flavour) and checking that the mayo is egg-free.Fruit Muffins [GF, DF, VEG]I have no idea how this recipe came about now, it has been one that has been part of my regular baking for the family for years; it is particularly useful if you have stewed fruit that requires using up (or just some old fruit), it will literally taste good no matter what fruit you chose to use! My kids love these muffins, and try to guess what fruit I have used in them!

It is a great go-to source of fibre and good carbohydrates and gets him through a morning of physical work easily! I haven't sat down and cost it out to do a comparison to the shop-bought cereals, but what I do know is that it is a much better option nutrition-wise, and has far less sugar (and I know exactly what is in it)!

They also both make wonderful ice blocks (as approved by our children)! When you can't use oats to thicken smoothies and add that nutritional boost anymore, you have to find something else - and I think we nailed it with these! And the best thing about them - there is NO added sugar, they're 4 ingredients only, and sweetened with natural fruit!
