A traditional Spanish dish, paella is usually cooked with fish or meat but The Cook & Him
have given it a vegan twist, incorporating British pulses and grains. Absolutely packed with veggies, protein and flavour, this recipe is a one-pot wonder.

This recipe for deliciously succulent and juicy vegan bean and beetroot burgers comes from Claire Thomson's The Art of the Larder
, one of our favourite cookbooks. While the recipe originally called for canned black beans Claire recommends using any of our canned red haricot beans, whole fava beans or even carlin peas - and either flaked quinoa or naked barley flakes substitute well for the rolled oats.
