Try this Batch Cooking Recipe in Veganuary to Help you Save Money

Delicious vegan chickpea curry


January is the perfect time to try some veggie evening meal recipes with it being ‘Veganuary’. So we have selected a vegan recipe that is already very popular with the children across the schools we serve…something that everyone can enjoy. 

Add to that, as it’s the month where we are all having to cut-back on spending after an expensive December, a bulk recipe that can be spread over 2 or even 3 weeks might just be the financial help we could all benefit from right now!

Simply freeze what you don’t use up the next week.
