A brilliant vegan/veggie staple- easy to make, economical and open to lots of creative variations! They can be as spicy or mellow as you like. You can also add more fresh veg – eg chopped peppers, celery. So raid the fridge and get experimenting! They can be fried or oven-baked too.
For a quick lunch/supper, make them the day before and chill for 30 minutes + before cooking. Then gently fry and add all the fixings (as our US friends say!)
Optional extras / notes
