Meet the new kids on the veggie plot
Our 8 year old has asked about being a vegetarian a few times over the past few months (and beyond) and she’s decided she would like to try being a veggie. Hubby and I have been toying with the idea of introducing a ‘cleaner’ diet into our house too so it’s the perfect opportunity to embrace it.
But what constitutes veggie food these days? And what do we do with it? I asked some bloggers to point me in the right direction:
Chantele from Two Hearts One Roof has a little treasure trove of ideas and inspiration. I love the sound of the lasagna with the layered veg and it got my mouth watering!
Eva from Captain Bobcat suggests a yummy sounding pudding. Mmmm I love avodaco and chocolate’s always a winner!
Here’s a recipe that we’ll be trying out from Sophie at Life as Mrs D ~ peanut sauce. Perfect with pasta! Yum 🙂
I love the look of this feta and spinach puff pastry dish from Gee Gardner.
Ben at Wood Create thinks pizza is a great idea: We decided to go vegan 6 months ago and the kids have really taken to it. We love to make home made pizza with vegan cheese and veg. (Sweet corn, spinach, chopped tomato, red pepper and mushroom) we sometimes even add a little vegan pesto. It’s quick and easy and the kids can help out putting their own topping on! Just 15 minutes prep and 7 minutes in the oven. Tasty meal in under 1/2 hour.
Sounds good to me!
I’ll report back soon and let you know how we’re doing! Until then, tell me about your veggie journey. I’d love to know! Comment below or tweet me @AllSortsHere .
