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!
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!
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!
The combination of parsnips, apple and spices is original and truly delectable: an unusual soup that's certain to become a regular in your repertoire.
Low-fat recipes often need quite assertive ingredients in order to give you plenty of taste and flavour: this lovely Japanese-inspired soup is a great example, with shiitake mushrooms adding punch and meaty depth.
Just as the Spanish have tortilla, the Italians enjoy frittata, cooked slowly to keep the eggs moist. Here, Delia has used melting cheese and a mixture of mushrooms for a wonderful vegetarian dish.
For a change to the usual boiled or steamed cauliflower, try Delia's oven-roasted recipe
Roasted pumpkin takes on plenty of toasty flavours - add melting cheese and this soup is truly sensational!
Traditionally we use butter to enrich mashed potatoes, but try this Italian-inspired version using garlicky olive oil. It's brilliant with roasted and grilled meats and fish.
Sharp, jewel-like cranberries combine brilliantly with red cabbage, at Christmas and any other time. Make this to bring vibrant colour and flavour to your Sunday roast!
