Never has ditching the meat been so easy.

Veggies get a bit of a bad rep. The overwhelming dread of one coming around for a meal which results in frantic Googling of how to spell “ratatouille” followed by “ratatouille recipes”. So, in celebration of National Vegetarian Week, we’ve created a mini guide for the most astute of vegetarians to try some dishes they may not have been aware of and give zealous meat eaters a veggie comparison worth considering.

Here’s a reminder that dining out doesn’t have to mean missing out.

From delicious and fresh hummus topped with pomegranates to flat breads and falafel, there’s nothing really more you could wish for.
