Slow Cooker 5-a-day Veggie Tagine and Fruity Cous Cous #MeatFreeMonday

Get your 5 a day in one hit!


I'm really big on meat free meals lately, I really want to cut down our intake to just one or 2 meat meals a week by the end of the year. I always thought that veggie meals would be boring and, well, samey. How wrong was I! I've probably eaten more delicious food in the last couple of months than I have in my life! If you are new to meat free meals, why not dip your toe in and try meat free Mondays for a few weeks first? This veggie tagine recipe is great for using up the last of your veggies, there is no veg that you couldn't put in here, and the fruity cous cous is just delicious and adds a sweetness that my kiddos couldn't say no to!

BBQ Jackfruit #MeatFreeMonday

So easy the kids can (and did) make it!


This year I really want to try new foods, and get into a habit of buying and using less meat, we are at the end of February and so far we have cut down our meat intake to 4/5 nights out of 7, compared to the beginning of January when it was probably 13 in 14 nights...and even then it would be something super simple and a little bit boring like jacket potato and cheese or cheesy pasta! So every Monday I am going to share a meat free recipe we have tried, as usual with my recipes, I tend to check out 3/4 of the same recipe around the web and come up with something similar that suits our family. This week's BBQ jackfruit recipe was inspired by Today We Cooked on Instagram, after reading a few more recipes online I tweaked it until I got this...and if your a little bit dubious about the whole jackfruit trend...trust me, it really is an amazing alternative for pulled pork!
