‘Meaty’ Sunday Roast

I love inviting friends over for Sunday lunch so that I can introduce them to vegan foods that they probably haven’t ever tried before!

One of my favourite dishes to prepare is this easy-to-make vegan roast. I made one the other night, and it took me about 15 minutes to prepare before popping it into the oven for an hour and a half.

I’ve been an avid fan since the beginning, but I must admit that I’ve always found the Celebrity Big Brother series to be the most addictive. Who could forget classic TV moments such as Vanessa Feltz’s meltdown or Pete Burn’s arguments with PETA supporter Jodie Marsh over his fur coat that appeared to be made from gorilla skin – and his face when the hideous coat was seized by police?
