Olive and Sun-dried Tomato Sausages

The veggie sausage - proof that you don't need to eat "lightly" to eat healthfully! If you're like me, in winter you just want to curl up with a good book and a hot plate of veggie bangers and mash. Our Olive and Sun-dried Tomato Sausages or Glamorgan Sausages are also wonderful as part of a hearty vegetarian Full English!

If you're interested in other ways to eat heartily and healthfully this year, please do consider joining our Cooking for Optimal Health course in January, or any of our courses in 2015.
