Recipes for National Vegetarian Week 2017 to get stuck in
The Hairy Bikers said: “As cooks, we’ve always appreciated our veg and they’re a hugely important part of our cooking. And lately, without really thinking about it, we’ve been eating less meat. The more we learn about cooking great food, the more we enjoy making use of all the amazing produce that’s on offer and creating dishes where vegetables, pulses and other plant foods are the stars of the show. That’s why we’re getting stuck into National Vegetarian Week this year… and we think you should too!”
Lynne Elliot, Chief Executive the Vegetarian Society, said: “This year we’re delighted to have The Hairy Bikers on board for National Vegetarian Week! We think the endearing duo are the ideal guys to help us encourage more people to give veggie food a go for the week.”
