One of the best bits about the weather changing and winter coming is the re-appearance of stuffing. We can't get enough of it.
And is there anything more delicious than wild mushrooms? They are the perfect way to jazz up your Christmas meal & give a rich, savoury flavour that even your most carnivorous of friends will be coming back for more!
This is a great side to your vegan Sunday roast or Christmas feast. Delicious pieces of sourdough and crunchy hazelnuts bring texture to this tasty festive vegan dish.
