Quick and Easy Lentil Bolognese

While I was away on my travels Martin was left to fend for himself and when I got back I was presented with some fabulous photos of the meals he had made, including this delicious looking lentil bolognese.

So thankfully I’ve got some recipes to give you whilst I get back into my kitchen and start creating again!

I’m trying to get my sister to part with her full recipe for stuffed vine leaves that she made for me while I was visiting, they were sensational and her mother in-law made me a vegetable stuffed flat bread that was just heaven, so I felt quite spoiled on my holidays that they had taken the time to make vegan food for me. Best of all, all their ingredients were from their veggie gardens and they make their own flour too! I was suitably impressed!
