Cannelloni, risotto and lasagne are all wonderful things…but they are NOT a decent alternative to a roast dinner for vegetarians, not to mention vegans! If you want to make a vegan version of this Sunday favourite, you can easily put a bit more effort into making the vegetables the star of the show.
