When we’re catering for guests who may be a little sceptical of a vegan meal we tend to go with dishes that feel familiar and accessible, like a risotto.

Deliciously Ella’s Sweet Potato Noodles with a Creamy Peanut Satay Sauce

These noodles were quite a revelation to me. They’re so much heartier and more filling than courgette noodles, and this satay sauce really brings them to life.
