Vegetarian menu: green with envy


Meat-eaters may well become vegetarians on sight when they see this gorgeous menu for 8: crisp crudités with three divine dips, a salad that combines the Mediterranean flavours of aubergines, tomatoes and feta cheese, and a dessert that will bring sighs of delight from all who eat it.




Summer Crudités with Three Dips

This is a real celebration of summer – young, fresh salads and crisp vegetables served with three well-flavoured dips.  

Main course



 Char-grilled Aubergine and Roasted Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

I am indebted to Chris Payne, who very generously gave me this splendid recipe. If you don't possess a ridged grill pan, you could grill the aubergine slices till nicely browned and tender. Either way, this is a truly delicious combination of textures and flavours.




Pistachio Ice Cream

This is so many people's favourite ice cream – pale green and fragrant, with lovely bits of frozen pistachio to bite into and lovely on its own or served with Pistachio Wafers.  

Pistachio Wafers 

These pretty little triangular wafers are perfect with Pistachio Ice Cream.
