Are You A Vegetarian, Vegan Or Just Eating Meat Free Now & Again?

Welcome to everyday vegetarian recipes. I hope I can inspire you!

Whether you are a vegetarian, vegan, an advocate of Meatfree Monday or you are just looking for a few alternative ideas for dinner, you should find something here.

Cooking can be a joy. But when life keeps getting busier and busier, sometimes food becomes all about getting a meal on the table every evening. Does that sound familiar?

But hey, that's doesn't have to be a bad thing. I think everyday meals are the ones that matter most so the emphasis on this website is on simple, everyday food.

The Everyday Vegetarian

Right now my cooking involves a budget, not enough time, fussy eating, predictable anxiety about trying to balance the kids' diet and two small girls who are usually more interested in stealing crackers from the cupboard at my feet while I optimistically bake tofu, steam quinoa or simmer lentil soup. It's hard to get the balance right isn't it?

The Goal

Well that's to put home cooked, healthy vegetarian food that tastes good on the table every day without losing my sanity. It's not always easy but I think I manage it most days - the food bit anyway. The sanity bit? Well, I'll let you be the judge of that...

The Recipes

All of these dishes were either created by me, by friends or adapted from favourite books gathered over the years. I hope you enjoy them. And if you would like to submit a recipe that would help the rest of us overcome another mealtime(!), that would be great too. My only caveat is that I do only accept vegetarian recipes.

I know many of you are not vegetarians but just want to cut down on meat. That's cool. I hope these recipes help. There's a mix of dishes here. I've tried to include lots of quick stuff. Some are a little more time-consuming but can usually be prepared in advance or frozen.
