+ This is a really affordable, mid-week vegetarian recipe. It’s perfect for meat-free Monday.
+ It’s slightly spicy – but the spice is dependent on how much taco seasoning you add so add less if you’re sensitive (you can always add more later). If you’re making it for kids, you could wait to add the spice at the end. Or you can swap taco space for a non-spicy spice like Lemon, Garlic, Herb seasoning.
+ This recipe will freeze well. Except, not the salsa. That needs to be made fresh (but only takes 2 mins :)
+ Serve with hot sauce or add hot chilli (pepper) flakes if you like it spicier!
