Yum o'clock!

For those of you who are halfway through Veganuary and are starting to run out of foodie inspiration, we have some good news for you.

Lebanese eatery Comptoir Libanais has launched a selection of tasty vegan specials for the month of January.

Perfect for those hoping to get 2020 off to a healthy start, the dishes are feel-good, healthy and – we have to admit – great value.

The mains are mouthwatering to say the least, and feature all the colours and flavours of the Middle East to spice up your dull and drizzly January.

Our favourite is the slow-cooked vegetable tagine.

The healthy tomato, pepper, onion, aubergine and chickpea stew is served with couscous, quinoa or rice and is a steal at £11.45.

Those with a sweet tooth should most definitely leave room for the vegan orange and almond cake – it's served with a zesty orange and sultana marmalade and is divine!

Middle Eastern food lends itself so well to veganism with many of our dishes being vegan already.
