Go meat-free this week with seven healthy recipes you’ll love

Go meat-free this week with seven healthy recipes you’ll love

Nothing bland to see here. Vegetarian food isn’t all salad and mushroom burgers, join us in going meat-free this week with these tasty, protein-rich, vegetarian dinners you’ll end up cooking weekly.

MONDAY

Quiche isn’t often considered healthy, it’s that buttery, crispy pastry we use that is our undoing. With this delicious wholemeal quiche with wilted kale and tomatoes you won’t miss that puff pastry at all, well not too much anyway. Stray from tradition and bake this one in a rectangular tin as seen above, just to be a little fancier. Plus it’s so much easier to cut it, if you plan on sharing that is.

TUESDAY

It’s almost soup weather and as a crockpot lover I for one could not be happier. Ribollita is a hearty Tuscan soup that is going to both warm you up and fill you up. This ribollita with roman beans goes best with a generous grating of cheese and some crunchy ciabatta. If you’re a meal-prepper it’s also a great idea to make extra. Freeze it and you can have a warm, flavoursome bowl any night of the week.

WEDNESDAY

This crispy tofu stir-fry with charred sugar snaps, is super easy and delicious. A Jamie Oliver special, this meal will have you feeling full, refreshed and not missing meat at all. Crispy, crunchy and full of flavour, this is the dish you serve up to your vego and non-vego friends to keep them all happy. And if you’re not a fan of tofu, well, lucky it looks like pork belly.

THURSDAY

Sweet potato is the food on EVERYONE’s lips right now, literally. Whether it’s sweet potato toast, sweet potato muffins or the newest, most Instagrammable way: loaded potato. Vegetarian loaded sweet potato essentially just uses the humble vegetable as vessel to hold your favourite collection of flavours. This one is Mediterranean-inspired and is way better than a salad.

FRIDAY

5

Well, there’ll be no fish this Friday, so why not try this Indian spiced zucchini, peas and beans in tomato sauce instead? This spicy dish is know as Torai Masala and goes great with brown rice, lentils, or as is. Turn up the heat as you like it, and feel free to throw in whatever veggies you have lying around. You know the ones, right at the back of your veggie crisper that you pretend not to see. Yeah those.

SATURDAY

6

Get your fix of Indian food without filling your curry with meat or cream. This healthy tandoori cauliflower recipe is so fresh and flavoursome you won’t miss that take away version one bit. And because this isn’t a rich saucy meal it is just as delicious cold the next day for work. The spicy, fragrant aroma will be enough to ensure the entire office is tandoori orange with envy.

SUNDAY

7

What do you think when I say the words vegetarian roast? I got you, didn’t I? Well, if you are a fan of Sunday roasts, we aren’t about to leave you high and dry because it’s vego week. This lentil nut roast with sugo, which I have dubbed the vegetarian meatloaf, is exactly what you want to be pulling out of the oven come Sunday evening. It tastes just as good as roast lamb and takes a quarter of the time to cook. Serve with roasted vegetables and you’re onto a winner.
