1 pack Gosh! Sweetcorn and Quinoa Bites
1 pack Gosh! Beetroot Falafel

For the cranberry beans:

1 tin of haricot beans
1 tablespoon tomato purée
100g pasata
1/4 teaspoon mixed spice (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon veg stock
3 tablespoons cranberry sauce
Salt to taste

For the bacon aubergine:

1 aubergine
4 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
2-3 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke

For the tofu scramble:

1 block of firm tofu

Garlic powder
Salt
Plant milk

Method:

  1. To make the cranberry beans, in a pan mix together all ingredients apart from the haricot beans to make the sauce, then add the drained beans and heat gently stirring regularly
  2. To make the bacon aubergine, mix everything together to form the marinade
  3. Cut the aubergine into strips and place on kitchen towel, cover with salt and leave for 10 minutes (this draws out the moisture) then press with some kitchen roll after 10 minutes to remove more moisture

1 butternut squash, cut in half & seeds removed
½ a leek, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, crushed or minced
Salt & pepper
Vegetable stock cube or balsamic vinegar for roasting
