World vegetarian day is just round the corner on October 1st, and we want to celebrate early with these glorious vegetarian recipes. From fiery baked eggs to a delish parsnip and apple cake, give your veggies the lovin’ they deserve with these mouth-watering vegetarian recipes.
Roast miso eggplant
We think that these soft miso eggplants are a cracking veggie alternative to a traditional roast dinner. They are super simple to make, using just a little miso, sea salt flakes and a splash of sake – let your eggplant shine.
These pretty little parcels are oozing with a creamy concoction of spinach, mozzarella and béchamel sauce. This moreish vegetarian snack would be perfect for an Argentinian style feast.
Baked eggs and tomatoes crammed with Middle Eastern spices that really pack a punch. This fabulously simple breakfast would be well worth waking up for any day of the week, and it divine as a quick mid week meal.
Moroccan couscous salad
We think this opulent Moroccan couscous salad makes a nutritious and delicious lunch. It’s made with a dreamy mix of feta, pomegranate, almonds and plenty of herbs – great for a mid-week pick me up!
Mushroom ragu with truffled polenta
This indulgent mushroom ragu will add a touch of splendour to your supper. Easy to prepare, the combination of intense mushrooms and creamy polenta is a meat-free match made in heaven.
Tomato, feta and tapenade focaccia
This homemade focaccia bread is gorgeous with the combination of intense savoury olive tapenade, juicy tomatoes and crumbled feta. Finished off with a scattering of thyme, it’s an irresistible vegetarian snack.
Red lentil dahl
Arun Kapil’s fragrant dahl is made from red lentils, coconut milk and topped off with zingy lime and chilli. It’s a hearty bowl of vegetarian goodness that would make the perfect companion on a cold night.
Homemade falafel pita breads
No vegetarian list would be complete without the trusty falafel! Graves’ recipe is bursting with tasty flavours and textures, and the cabbage adds a very satisfying crunch – a foolproof lunch.
Parsnip and apple cake
Not your typical cake: the parsnip gives a delicious natural sweetness and smooth consistency to the batter. We think this would be an excellent celebratory cake for World Vegetarian Day! Plus it contains fruit and veg, making it part of your five a day – right?
