Chalet Veggie Mains | Cashew Nut Burgers

Cashew Nut Burgers are great as we get so many different guests requiring special types of food on our all-inclusive French Alps and Peak District walking holidays.

The most common request is for vegetarian, so I am always looking for easy vegetarian recipes.
