Do you ever get stuck for ideas when you only have a fridge full of odd veggies? Especially when you need to serve it to your kids too? Do you find yourself cooking the same-old because you can’t be bothered searching for something new? When we get stuck, there’s no better inspiration than the community of One Handed Cooks on our Facebook page.

Earlier we asked, “I have a fridge full of leftover veggies that need to be used. What’s your favourite vegetarian family or kid friendly meal?”

    I was looking over your vegetarian recipes and I noticed on several of them the links don’t work. Meaning you can’t click on them to get the recipes. Can you tell me why? And how can I find the recipes where the links aren’t working so I can check them out? Thank you!
