Just bought one and am sceptical as to how fabulous they are- looking online and found recipes for veg lasagne, porridge and even mashed potatoes. We like curry and chilli but would also love your other best vegetarian recipes. Also do you sauté onions etc and how do you stop things being really wet and sloppy?! Thanks all!

Hey Tolly,
We're not exactly veggies, but have you tried quorn recipies? I think you can take any regular curry, swap the meat for a quorn alternative, and it tastes sort of similar. As for stopping things getting wet and sloppy, if it really bothers you, remove exess water or oil, but often this adds to the flavour so keep it in if possible. Hope this helps!
