A Girl Called Jack – Vegan Recipes!

exam180314JackMonroe_large

Today I want to point you towards a blogger and cookbook writer who strangely enough, is not vegan! Jack Monroe came to everyone’s attention when she started her blog about budget family cooking a few years back. Since then she’s become a beacon of hope for anyone who is currently suffering in the terrible political climate in Britain today. She’s well known for feeding herself and her son for just £10 a week when she was waiting for benefits to be paid to her which never seemed to turn up. Unfortunately this is more and more common now and many families are struggling to cope.

On her blog and in her books many of the recipes tend to be vegan because vegetables and rice are much cheaper than a steak! I follow the blog and own the first book and there are a surprising amount of recipes that I can use. Jack has gone a step further now and introduced a vegan section on her website to make it even easier for us vegan fans!

Here are a list of the most exciting vegan and gluten free (or easily adaptable) recipes I’ve found so far:

Carrot and Coriander Falafel

Penne Pappa al Pomodoro

Carrot, Cumin and Kidney Bean Burgers

Roasted Carrot, Chickpea and Garlic Soup

Red Lentil Bolognese

Mushroom Chasseur

For the rest of her vegan recipes have a look here.
