Saag aloo recipe for vegans

I recently told you about a new vegan cooking guide called RootyFuel.

Available as a 7-day e-book or a 31-day fully supported collection of videos and recipes, RootyFuel is designed to help you get to grips with down to Earth vegan cuisine.

It has been designed to help vegan and vegan-curious cooks learn what works best for them in their own kitchens.

To celebrate the end of a competition I was running for RootyFuel (winner announced soon), I am thrilled to be sharing their recipe for vegan saag aloo.

Be sure to follow RootyFuel on Instagram and head to their website to see if their curses are right for you or a friend.
