Celebrate National Vegetarian Week (NVW) by cooking up tantalising tasty recipes this week that are suitable for vegans!
Created by the Vegetarian Society, NVW is the UK’s annual awareness-raising campaign promoting inspirational vegetarian food and the benefits of a meat-free lifestyle.
Celebrated since 1992, it gives kitchen goddesses, schools and organisations the chance to give vegetarianism a go and try out new foods that they may not necessarily have tasted beforehand.
Grab your Aprons and learn how to enjoy a satisfying meal that tickles the taste buds without meat with the help of Ulster Weavers. There are a huge variety of culinary vegetables and fruit to choose from so every dish is unique including cabbage, aubergine, mushroom, cress, turnip, broccoli, courgette, tomato, pepper and more. Experiment with edible plants and seeds galore and get some healthy foods into your diet!
So have fun cooking vegetable dishes this week with some of these exciting recipes to try, and you never know; you might end the week turned vegan.
Risotto Stuffed Ramiro Peppers
This recipe is super easy to make and is simply a slight twist on the old favourite stuffed peppers.
It only takes 10 minutes to prepare and 45 minutes to cook, so have fun flavouring the dish however spicy you want from creamy kale risotto to tangy olive tapenade.
Chickpea and Cashew Korma
This recipe is perfect to adjust to your spice levels, so you can season it how you want and if you really want to liven up the dish why not make the rice spicy too!
It only takes 30 minutes and presents beautifully with all the vibrant colours; great for the whole family.
The sandwich is an all-time traditional meal and nothing can beat a classic sarnie than stuffing it with a combination of delicious fillings to make your mouth water.
Sit in front of your desk computer or at a sit-down lunch and satisfy your appetite with a tomato zing, kidney bean pate, meddi veggie, or grilled halloumi filling.
So have fun cooking up vegetarian storms with Ulster Weavers cute and quirky PVC Aprons.
