This is an absolutely fab recipe, truly another one of my favourites. It is one recipe that could be very useful in this current health crisis caused by coronavirus and used as a healthy alternative to things like canned baked beans, notorious for their both salt and sugar content that can only compromise your immunity further.

It is delicious , one of my clients favourites and allows you to stock up and store ingredients in your pantry and freezer.

It is suitable for vegans and vegetarians alike.

Recipe is also perfectly balanced with optimum amount of plant proteins that one meal should have, great amount of fibre, vitamins, minerals and healthy fats. This is what you need:
