4. Cut the FRY'S Polony slices into 3 triangular segments and slice olives

Karin Ridgers gave up her well paid career to promote vegan living full time. A scary move that has meant she has worked flat out with ups and downs running her own business for 9 years.
Karin is the founder of VeggieVision TV – the internet TV station that addresses the fact that in the UK there are no veggie friendly TV programmes!
A great way to make vegetables tasty and more appealing for the whole family!

Sweet Potato Fries
Spicy, so leave the cayenne pepper out if you prefer
Quinoa & halloumi burgers with corn salsa
I like to use red quinoa to make these substantial burgers for its colour and nutty texture, but any variety will do.
