Often working around allergens when cooking for larger groups of people, or school lunches; it can be hard to equate various food alternatives to something delicious that doesn’t include the item you are wanting to avoid like traces of egg for example.
There are so many amazing plant-based swaps you can make - even for the fussy eaters if you're trying to keep everyone in the family happy.
