Free from week on the bake off always surprises me, they make things that I would never usually attempt or things that really don’t appeal, but when I give them a go they are usually pretty good! This week was no exception, I love making sausage rolls and have tried plenty of different recipes over the years. But a vegan sausage roll didn’t really appeal – if you had told me it was a mushroom, lentil and miso pie I would have thought it sounded delicious. Click here to see how I got on.
