Mixed Vegetables a la Grecque
This is my number one vegetarian dish. It makes an excellent lunch served with a brown rice salad with a herb vinaigrette, but mostly I serve it as a starter on crisp lettuce leaves with crusty bread to dip into the juices. You can, of course, vary the vegetables.

This recipe is taken from Delia Smith’s Complete Cookery Course.
Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a heavy-based pan and soften the chopped onion for 5 minutes. Then add the garlic, wine vinegar, tomatoes, oregano, coriander, peppercorns, lemon juice, water and tomato purée mixture and some salt. Bring to the boil and stir in the button onions.
Now cover the pan and simmer for 20 minutes. Then add the cooked and drained kidney beans, the cauliflower and mushrooms, cover the pan again and simmer for a further 20 minutes, stirring the vegetables round once or twice during the cooking time.
After 20 minutes, test the vegetables with a skewer – they should be tender but still firm. Taste and check the seasoning. Pour the contents of the pan into a shallow dish and leave to cool. I think this dish is best left overnight but a few hours will do. To serve, sprinkle the vegetables with the rest of the olive oil, then scatter the chopped parsley and spring onions on top.

A great way to add lots of vegetables and pulses to a buffet spread - and so easy you can make it well in advance.
This famous Provençal vegetable stew is best made in the autumn when the vegetables needed for it are cheap and plentiful. This can be a most attractive dish but not if it ends up mushy. So to avoid this, make sure you don't cut up the vegetables too
With its explosion of colour and flavours, a spicy mix of Caribbean spices, coconut milk, beef and vegetables brings this vivid, tasty dish to life!
