4. Jerk sweet potato & black bean curry
Bring the heat with a helping of this one– it’s extra tasty with a serving of rice and peas. This Caribbean-style curry uses jerk seasoning for an extra flavor boost and plenty of ginger for subtle heat. It’s hard to believe something so rich could be good for you, but trust us, it’s true! The final sprinkling of coriander brings all the flavors together.

The fritters emerge from the frying wonderfully crisp and seasoned. They make a delicious evening supper when stuffed in a warm pita with loads of vegetables, a sprinkle of tahini, and a dash of spicy sauce.

6. Nut Roast
To make a gorgeous veggie centerpiece for Sunday dinner or a special event, combine root vegetables, mushrooms, grains, and fresh herbs. If you’re looking for a substantial main dish to replace a leg of lamb or a roast beef joint, our nut roast is a great choice. Serve a wedge of this vegetarian beauty with crisp roasties, honey-roasted roots, and perhaps a few of puffed-up Yorkies.

7. Vegetarian Chicken-Fried Portobello Mushroom Steaks
Vegetarians, take note! You no longer have to miss out on a traditional blue-plate special. We use the same breading for our mushroom version that then use for our chicken-fried steak (it works wonderfully), and we fry it till brown and crispy. Use a lot of our flavorful vegetable gravy (you can make it ahead and freeze it for up to a month).
