Vegetarian Guests…?

Are you having a vegetarian or vegan Christmas dinner or just one guest over and need some ideas? Try one of these…

Tanzanian Banana and Yam Stew for a change on the traditional or Pilaf Stuffed Onions for a great looking and tasting vegan centrepiece. For those new to vegan cooking, please be careful if buying stock as not all vegetable stock is vegan friendly try Marigold Bouillon, who have a delicious stock especially for vegans.

The Moroccan Bake is great made using Quorn fillets, halloumi cheese or with extra vegetables and chick peas for an aromatic and tasty dinner that you can serve along with your other Christmas dinner vegetables. So aromatic in fact that the vegetarians at the table might need to guard their meal carefully and fend off all others wanting to try some so make sure you make enough!
