Vegetarian Week Part 3

Here's the final installment of vegetarian week. Once again I'd really encourage you to try some of these recipes. You can find part 1 here and 2 here.

Day 6: Spicy Root Vegetable and Lentil Curry

From just reading the title of this recipe, I wasn't convinced but I have to say it was fantastic. It really is extreme vegetarian comfort food. Absolutely packed with flavour and especially good at this time of year on a cold winter's night. We served it with Indian spiced greens using kale and shredded sprouts. The recipes were taken from GoodFood which you can find here and here. My girlfriend also made some really good gluten free flatbreads using this recipe. To make it gluten free just substitute the flour for gluten free bread flour. They're a lot less greasy than those usually served in Indian restaurants and still taste great.

Day 7: Kale, Olive and Gruyere Tart

The final recipe of the week certainly didn't disappoint. A delicious combination of flavours which worked really well together. We used the Genius gluten free short crust pastry, which I have to say was very good indeed. You can get the full recipe for the tart from the GoodFood site. Not once this week have I missed eating meat, with food this good I don't think even the keenest carnivore would. So give it a try, you might be pleasantly surprised!
