Nowadays, vegetarians can enjoy food that's as exciting, colourful and full of flavour as the dishes enjoyed by meat-eaters. It wasn't always so! Delia has drawn on some of the best cuisines in the world to bring you a selection of vegetarian recipes that will have you spoilt for choice!
Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best and this is a good example: artichokes dipped into shallot vinaigrette for a real taste of early summer.
This excellent recipe is a treat for vegetarians and meat eaters, and features a totally successful culinary marriage: celery and Stilton, plus a few other ingredients besides.
Made from storecupboard ingredients, this tasty supper dish is ideal when you arrive home from work tired and hungry and need to eat now! Give it a try…
An easy and quick vegetarian tart, this one uses ready-made puff pastry and a wonderful jar of caramelised red onions that should be a staple in your storecupboard.
Low-fat, full of flavour, easy to make and suitable for freezing: there really is every reason to make this superb velvety, almost fat-free soup on a winter's day. It's bound to become a favourite immediately!
What could be easier than this delightful bread, which can also be made as a gluten-free version? Serve it with soup, lunch dishes or on its own, liberally slathered with butter.
Glazing parsnips with mustard and maple syrup gives them a whole new dimension… wonderful with any roast meats or poultry or as a vegetarian dish.
Winter carrots can lack flavour and appeal, but if you add coriander seeds and slightly caramelise them in the oven, they seem to take on a new lease of life.
This lovely caramelised fennel would go brilliantly with any fish, meat or chicken but maybe, due to the inclusion of cider and cider vinegar, particularly well with pork.
Roasting vegetables is a great way of maximising their nutritional benefit as the vitamins don't leach out into the cooking water - and they're full of flavour and texture. This recipe uses all those wonderful root veg in one go.
