Tuesday Treats – The National Vegetarian Week Edition

Tuesday Treats is a weekly round up of blog gems chosen by Ruth at DorkyMum, Becky at Baby Budgeting  Liz at Me and My Shadow and me! This week it’s my turn and, as it is National Vegetarian Week this week, I want to share some of the foodie posts I’ve been drooling over!

First up is Utterly Scrummy Food for Families who is having a go at cooking veggie for a whole week and is hoping that her family will let her do it more often. Her meal plan is carefully thought out and put together and well worth a look if you’re thinking of giving it a go.

Tinned Tomatoes shares her recipe for Cajun Spiced Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burger, I’m always on the hunt for the perfect veggie burger so I’ll definitely be having a go at this one! (When I popped there to add that link to this post I noticed that Jacqueline has just written a lovely post listing some of her favourite veggie food bloggers some of which are new to me so I’ll be back there when I’ve finished this to check them out!)

Helen at The Crazy Kitchen had me salivating with her recipe for Rhubarb Ripple Ice Cream with Spiced Lemon Cookies, especially as I don’t need an ice cream maker to make it!

Regular readers know how fond I am of a bit of foraging so Belleau Kitchen’s recipe for Foragers Quiche was bound to catch me eye! I’d have to change cheeses as Lincolnshire Poacher isn’t suitable for vegetarians but that’s not too hard!

Lisa at We Don’t Eat Anything With A Face has the best name in the veggie blogger world – says it like it is! It was her recipe for Paneer Tikka which caught my interest this time as I’m forever being asked ‘What do you cook for the veggie BBQ?’  I love paneer and have recently been making my own so this one is definitely on the ‘to do’ list.

With UK asparagus season now in its brief full swing we’re chomping on it almost everyday, this recipe for Asparagus Pesto Lasagna from Food and Spice rings the changes nicely!

I do like a pie and Sweet Potato, Spinach and Onion makes for a very family friendly pie from The Vegetarian Experience!

Most of Mediocre Mum’s slow cooker recipes are very meaty indeed but there are also some fabulous veggie ideas over there. With six of us all appearing at various times throughout the evening for food my slow cooker is vital and I’m always on the hunt for something new to have a go at. I really like the idea of Slow Cooker butternut Squash, Sage and Parmesan Gnocchi (I’d use the veggie version, obviously) and it’s one on my list for autumn!

My eldest is a big fan of stuffed peppers and I’m Counting UFOs cheerful red lovelies look lip smackingly good!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my trawl through veggie recipes and that you’ll be tempted to have a go at at least one of them for National Vegetarian Week! You’ll find more recipes on here in my ‘Cooking’ Section and over on my food blog ‘Life is Delicious’ if you fancy a look!

  4. Thanks very much for the mention :-)Hope you have a great veggie week!

    • Thanks Lisa, you too! xxx

  5. These look scrummy, I need a bit of inspiration as my kids are being utter fusspots at the moment and I feel like I am cooking more meals than I should do (and that no-one eats them). At which point I question bringing them up veggie, I know I am right, but arghhh! Must get them cooking…I blogged some veggie kebabs though (they didn’t eat them!)

    • Would they be less fussy if they weren’t veggie? I doubt it! Get the chefs’ hats out over half term and get them cooking! ;-)

  6. gosh how did I not know it’s National Veggie week???
    some lovely pointers in some lovely directions. thank you x

    • My pleasure! I hope to see you tomorrow at VegFest if my children let me out to play!
