Vegetarian Inspiration for Flexitarians
Have you heard of this new Flexitarian phenomena? More and more of us are reducing the amount of meat we eat. But more often that not just removing the meat from a meat-centric dish isn’t very satisfying. So, here are our 10 favourite vegetarian recipes and little hacks for people who want to reduce the amount of meat they eat, for whatever reason but aren’t sure how to cook vegetarian food well.
Here are our best hacks to make your vegetarian food extra tasty and nutritious.
Mushrooms are a great substitute if you are craving meat, because the stock and juices are slightly more meaty than other vegetables.
How about some charring to give your peppers that delicious barbecue taste?
Swap your standard vegetable for a different variety – instead of potatoes, get some purple ones.
Asian spices and herbs add a hell of a punch of flavour.
Roasted root vegetables and nuts are a great way of adding depth of flavour.
For soft, melt in your mouth aubergines – cook them on a high heat in oil, followed by a low heat in a ragu for an hour or two.
The world of cheeses is your oyster. Goat’s cheese, halloumi and feta are a great start to add a twist.
Add flavour with pickled vegetables, sun dried tomatoes or chilli.
Another cheese which is a must try for vegetarians is paneer. Indian cheese – great in a curry.
