Veggie Recipe Roundup – Week One

It’s day one, week one, of giving up meat.  Last night Nick cooked me one of my all time favorite Persian meals, khoresht-e-bademjan which is slow simmered chunks of beef and eggplant in a sour tomato stew.  It’s amazing, and it was a nice comforting way to say goodbye to meat for a while.

Steph’s Veggie Moussaka

Oh my dears, if you haven’t had moussaka in your life before, what the hell is wrong with you??

Meatless Day 5 – Steph’s Vegetarian Squash Chilli

I don’t know about where you are, but it’s pretty grey and drizzly here.  Nothing warms me up more than a good and hearty chilli and this one is a favourite of N’s, despite the lack of meat.  We actually have this one on a regular basis because it’s easy, super tasty and very versatile.… Continue reading Meatless Day 5 – Steph’s Vegetarian Squash Chilli
