Vegetarian Week Guest Post: Tony from Technology

In November 2013 I decided to eat a more varied selection of vegetarian food. I’m not vegetarian, but for now I only cook vegetarian at home.

If you’re like a lot of people you might think I’d be eating cauliflower cheese every day. You couldn’t be more wrong.

I came up with a routine – every weekend I pick up one of my many cookbooks (I think I have 300) and find 10-15 dishes I want to make the following week. That’s one way to stop your cookery books gathering dust!

I’ve also found a wealth of great recipes online. One particularly tasty dish from Ocado’s Recipe section (filter by Dietary: vegetarian) is Couscous, Sweet Potato and Edamame Salad with Citrus Basil Vinaigrette.

Not to be trifled with

Tuning into tonight’s Great British Bake Off? This week they’ll be whipping up their ‘signature trifle’ – and if yours is more Rachel Green than Mary Berry (hello Friends fans!) you might want to check out my recipe suggestions.


The trifle is essentially just layers of yumminess, so how hard can it be? These three look easy (and tasty) enough, so I say reclaim this retro pud and make trifle your signature dish.

Sherry Trifle

One for traditionalists, this makes a great centrepiece at the end of a meal, and you can swap in whatever berries are in season.

Baileys Trifle

Talk about decadent! With mascarpone and booze, this is a little more grown up than your average trifle.

Strawberry and Brownie Trifles

A fun and very easy treat, and great to make with kids.
