Finding a healthy meal that everyone will enjoy can be a bit of a challenge. So why not try something vegan?
Before you leap to conclusions, vegan food isn't all carrot sticks and lettuce leaves. In fact, we're rustled up five vegan dinner recipes that will not only leave you feeling full, but are also delicious and nutritious.
It's currently 'Veganuary', so if you're in need of inspiration or simply someone who wants to try something new, take a look at these dishes that the whole family will love.
