Forget Atkins, and celebrate National Vegetarian Week with flavoursome food that doesn’t need to be a fad. A balanced vegetarian diet, rich in fresh fruit, vegetables and energy-giving carbohydrates works for life. Choose life and enjoy a feast of flavour with these gorgeous recipes, especially created by The Vegetarian Society to get National Vegetarian Week off to a delicious start.

Jewel Green Rocket Soup with Parmesana Potato Polenta
A stunning - but simple - soup served with the tastiest ‘dunkers’. Guaranteed to impress dinner guests, it’s also a perfect solo indulgence for lunch.

Smoked Garlic & Artichoke Risotto with Roasted Butternut Squash & Lemon Asparagus in a Balsamic Dressing
Substantial, delicious and unbelievably low in fat, this risotto stands alone as a tasty family tea, but scrubs up well for company when served on a roasted squash with a side dish of lemon asparagus in balsamic dressing.

XXX-presso Chocolate Cheesecake
A serious chocolate and espresso hit. Strictly for adults only, and incredibly it’s dairy-free!

Gingery Fig & Rhubarb Filo Flowers with Passion Fruit and Berries
An elegant, low fat dessert for those with a passion for style and content!
