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.

1. Couscous, Sweet Potato and Edamame Salad with Citrus Basil Vinaigrette

This tasty colourful salad makes a delicious summer supper. Cooked frozen soya beans work just as well as fresh.

Fancy a satisfyingly juicy, filling alternative to beef burgers? Chunky portabella mushrooms are full of flavour and meaty enough to take a good grilling.

Everybody loves spag Bol and this Quorn creation is a delicious take on a family classic – and meat free too.

Image4. Mixed Mushroom and Basil Calzone

It’s just another Mushroom Monday! These individual calzones are filled with mushrooms and creamy mozzarella.

Full of cardamom, cloves, coriander, and cumin seeds this vegetable curry will add bags of flavor to any Monday evening. Good with lots of freshly boiled basmati rice, or naan bread.
