It’s not rocket science – it’s surprisingly simple
National Vegetarian Week 20 - 26 May 2013
Wondering how you would cope without all your usual meaty products – simply substitute. Choosing veggie and eating veggie food has never been easier, in fact it’s surprisingly simple.
• Bolognese - instead of mincemeat simply use tinned aduki beans or lentils and get the spaghetti boiling.
• Curry - wondering what to put in your fave curry? Why not try quorn pieces or a tin of chickpeas. Add a red pepper and spinach - just don’t forget the mango chutney.
• Chilli - desperate for that fiery kick, use veggie mince. You can get it dried, chilled or frozen. Wraps, burritos and tacos watch out.
• Chips and - would you believe it you can get fish-free fingers, steaks and cakes. Plus, as a bonus, the ocean keeps its fish. Pass the vinegar.
• Burgers - get your buns and fry those onions ready-made veggie burgers abound
• Cocktails - feeling a little nostalgic for the 70s - you can indulge in fish-free king prawns, ideal for cocktails or paella.
• Mash - well you’ll need sausages (they’re a shape rather than an actual animal), you can get them flavoured with rosemary, leek and onion or perhaps you’d prefer the Lincolnshire or Cumberland variety.
Our world is complicated enough and one surprisingly simple change will benefit your health, the environment and animals. Going vegetarian isn’t rocket science, it’s just delicious.
