I started VegHotPot in 2011 as a way to document the recipes I was creating after turning vegetarian. My passion for cooking teamed with my need to be on a tight budget meant I produced simple, whole food based meals that didn't cost the earth. I hope my recipes inspire people to cook from scratch, include more vegetables in their diet and most importantly to try something new.
