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!
The crunch of the walnuts and the tang of the blue cheese combine to make this a really wonderful vegetarian pasta dish that's made in minutes.
As Delia says, this salad is a good one for winter when the summer saladings are but a distant memory. Apples, cider and Camembert are just brilliant together, and this can be served on its own for lunch or as an accompaniment.
Particularly good with pork, due to the affinity between that meat and apples, this lovely rosti recipe is one that you will make again and again. The apples also add extra flavour.
Light and fresh with zingy citrus and herbs: what more could you want from a veggie pasta dish when you're hungry but don't have much time to cook?
Unlike the classic gazpacho, this version includes the lovely aniseed flavours of fennel for a really Mediterranean touch. We know you'll love it and, if the weather is less than summery, it can also be served warm.
A vinaigrette with a difference that will pep up any summery fish or chicken you might be cooking.
Redolent of Greece, Turkey and the Middle East where stuffed vegetables are de rigueur, this lovely vegetarian recipe is a flavourful way to eat cabbage in the winter months.
On their own, lentils can be a bit bland, but with this spiced lentil cakes Delia has added plenty of flavour with tomato, herbs and spices. A brilliant vegetarian recipe that's cheap and easy to make, but also extremely nutritious and filling.
You can now buy vine leaves in supermarkets, so this easy vegetarian recipe just got even easier! It will take you to the Greek islands in seconds, filled as it is with all those flavours of the eastern Mediterranean.
Based on the Mediterranean salad, fattoush, this may sound unusual but go on, give it a try! We are confident you'll fall for its gutsy, robust flavours and textures. Great with barbecue food, or summery chicken and meat.
