Spice up your Veganuary with The Batch Lady’s vegan Thai red tofu curry recipe

I’M back with another vegan recipe for Veganuary.

If you are not taking part, you could just be trying to eat less meat and be a little healthier.

Vegan food does not have to be boring, so give this recipe a go and let me know how you get on.

As always, it can be batched and frozen for whenever needed.

The New Year is a good time to start positive habits, such as meal planning.

Every Sunday, look in the freezer and if you have a hectic week ahead, you might opt for batched meals.

On a quieter week, there may be a few nights when you can enjoy cooking.

Get organised.
