I love a bit of easy foraging...in my Dad's back garden! That counts, right?

Busier days call for a quicker dinner and this is one of ours.

Dairy Free Healthy Wellington Squares

This recipe was written by Michelle Hunt of the Peachy Palate, devised for the Happy Pear, a whopping 5 years ago! Doesn't time fly.
