“Meatballs” And Sauce – Meatless Mondays

So if you follow my Instagram you will have seen I have been posting meals with Quorn products like these meatballs.

I just prefer eating vegetarian foods and because I still have some mild very mild intolerances to dairy I often eat vegan unless it is cheese, cheese has never done me any harm so I won’t give it up!
