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!
Although moussaka is a Greek classic, Delia has added an Italian element with a ricotta topping for a creamy and lighter touch than the traditional bechamel sauce.
Although leeks are the traditional ingredient in a vichyssoise, the inclusion of lemon grass instead gives the soup a wonderful citrusy oriental flavour that really lends itself to serving chilled.
Low-fat and lovely, this hot-weather soup will become a regular in your repertoire, especially if your garden is overflowing with home-grown produce…
A summer pasta dish if ever there was one, this recipe combines peas and beans with a rich cream sauce. If you've got vegetarians to feed, this is perfect…
Souffled omelettes are a great way of making a plain omelette really special and the addition of Cashel Blue - or, indeed any tangy, blue cheese - will give you a supper dish for one that's out of this world. Serve with a tomato salad.
What could be better than home-made bread, especially when it's crammed with the flavours of cheese, potatoes, fresh sage and caramelised onions. We are confident this will soon become one of your favourites!
This one's a complete doddle and takes no time at all: a new take on this season's asparagus, accompanied by a creamy cheese sauce and freshly poached eggs. Makes you want to become a vegetarian on sight!
Full of autumnal or Christmas flavours, this wonderful soup is a real treat and has plenty of French influence. It uses dried wild mushrooms so no need to go foraging!
Roasting tomatoes results in a soup that's packed with intense flavour, while the addition of basil brings out the very best in this Mediterranean ingredient.
We all know that pulses are a brilliant source of fibre and protein, so if you want to up your intake, this soup is just one way of doing so. The cannellini beans give the soup a creamy texture and the flavour is out of this world!
