The Ultimate Pre-match Brunch

strong roots vegan brunch

On the weekends I pride myself on cooking up a proper brunch, but like most people I still want it to be done fast with minimal clean up! I collaborated with STRONG ROOTS on the ultimate pre-match brunch using their new Cauliflower Hash Browns- Yes you heard it right, cauli hash browns they are so tasty with an unbelievable crispy coating. I teamed the hash browns with a 2 minute homemade baked beans, an even faster tofu scramble and of course some avocado for good measure. I hope you guys love these simple recipes and when you’re recreating the recipe don’t forget to tag us @strongrootsirl

Recommendation; These hash browns also go really well used as a base for smashed avocado or simply with a drizzle of sriracha sauce !

STRONG ROOTS range is available in all major retailers; SuperValu, Tesco, Dunnes Stores and all good independents.
