Baked beans are always something to get excited about. Sweet, saucy beans served on white toast slathered with margarine: so delicious, but hardly the most nutritious start to the day. This Proper Baked Beans recipe by Olivia Andrews has a few veggies snuck in for a slightly healthier version!
2. Smoked Tofu Rice And Barley Risotto
This Smoked Tofu Rice And Barley Risotto recipe by Jenny Marie uses both rice and barley for added texture, and chunky chestnut mushrooms for bite. As per my previous recipes with smoked tofu, it is a must as it takes the place of smoked fish. You also don’t want to crumble it too finely for the same reason.
3. Rhubarb-Marinated Tofu Steaks
