Frittatas

Spring rolls


Colourful Vietnamese prawn spring rolls taste just as good as they look. A mix of spiralized carrot and courgette adds a little crunch to the prawn filling. Pair with our chilli dipping sauce for perfectly portioned up party food.

Sushi


These attractive looking seaweed-wrapped veggies are the ideal vegan canapé. Try beetroot & avocado nori with our punchy dipping sauce and a blob of wasabi or the storecupboard equivalent, a spoonful of horseradish.

Hash


A quick supper of spiralized sweet potato noodles, a squirt of sriracha, dollop of guacamole, topped off with a fried egg, this sweet potato hash can be ready in 30 minutes and makes a great veggie option.
