Gorgeous Vegetarian Food & a Tibits Giveaway

I have been a vegetarian for 32 years. My children and my husband are also vegetarian. I am not a confident or accomplished cook and  yet most of the cooking does fall to me.

After many years of eating pretty much the same things week in week out I have decided I want to learn to cook. Simple beautiful tasty vegetarian food is what I am after. How bored we are of quorn and pasta with tomato sauce. Inspiration was needed!

My old and very dear friend and food writer Chris Mosler has just given her food blog a bit of a relaunch and Life is Delicious really is looking better than ever.  Check out her recipe for Sweet Potato and Chestnut Pie with Mushrooms, Stilton and Thyme for a Perfect Vegetarian Christmas

Vegetarian Christmas Pie

This is most definitely what I want for Christmas dinner !

Life is delicious is a vegetarian family life that is filled with tasty recipes with clear instruction and the most tempting photos! They certainly make me want to cook!

Ive also been sent  a lovely recipe book this month from Tibits the London and Switzerland based Vegetarian restaurants. Tibits was voted The Best Vegetarian Restaurant in the prestigious Cook Vegetarian awards in 2014 and has a wonderful reputation.

Their cook book has tantalizing photography and showcases some  simple and achievable recipes that have really made my mouth water!

    I cannot eat Gluten and tend to find dairy a real problem too so cooking without meat as well is very difficult. However, I love vegetable crumble, using gluten free flour and a dairy free ‘butter’ and with home made veg stock (made from various bits of veg left in water in a slow cooker for 2 days).

    My favorite (at the moment anyway) has to be chestnut and goat’s cheese tarts. SO unhealthy, but too gorgeous to not eat. Plus freeze brilliantly.

    Having a vegetarian daughter we’ve gradually added to our meal plans more of a focus on Vegetarian dinners for the whole family. Probably our favourite is a mushroom risotto!

    I love many veggie dishes but after spending lots of time in India around my mother-in-law who is an amazing cook, I would have to say her Makhani Dal served with roti and raita (made with homemade curd, apples, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, boondhi and lemon juice) is the most delicious. It’s simple traditional food but sooo tasty!

  68. November 22, 2014 / 6:44 pm

    My favorite vegetarian meal is wild mushroom lasagna
