Cook like a VEGETARIAN

This month I’m helping you cook meat-free meals. Vegetarianism is a way of life for many, but it makes sense for all of us to eat less meat – both for the sake of our health and the environment. You may want to start small by committing to a meat-free Monday, but follow my tips and recipes and you’ll find it easier and more enticing to cook the veggie way any day of the week.


EATING A VEGETARIAN DIET is easy these days, with so many products, restaurants, blogs and cookbooks to inspire us. Good news, as Public Health England recently issued the new-look Eatwell Guide and, like its predecessor the Eatwell Plate, it encourages us to make fruit, veg and grains the basis of the majority of our meals. It includes a new and notable encouragement to eat more beans and pulses while reducing our consumption of red and processed meat.


One of the main concerns for would-be veggies is that they’ll miss out on nutrients.

But with a little know-how and meal planning, you can easily meet most of your daily needs from plant-based foods alone(omega-3 fats and vitamin B12 are the exceptions – see far right). For example, the average adult needs 50g protein a day, and you can get a quarter of your daily quota just from the milk in your cuppas and on your cereal! Read more on p40.



Time to heat up the non-stick griddle pan or fire up the barbie… Chargrilling veg such as peppers, courgettes and spring onions caramelises the natural sugars for a richer flavour.

The grill lines it creates look appetising, too.
