A meat-free lifestyle – easy and quick meat-free recipes
If anyone had told me years ago, that I’d eventually be living without eating meat of fish, I’m pretty sure that I wouldn’t have believed them. But times change and over the years, I decided that really, meat isn’t part of living my own personal good life.
I know a lot of people who have cut down on the meat they eat and I think that the ‘Meatless Monday‘ movement, popularized by the McCartney family, had a lot to do with that. There are so many great vegetarian recipe books today and gradually, we are becoming a little less ‘weird’ in the eye of the general public.
Over the years, I’ve developed many meat-free recipes. I couldn’t possibly follow a vegan diet – I can’t imagine cooking without dairy, especially cheese. I have a collection of my vegetarian recipes online. They are all quick to make (they have to be with my crazy lifestyle) and illustrated throughout with photographs.
Despite not having a huge amount of time, I do like to entertain and cook for friends and some of my favorites include:
Mushroom Wellington – very tasty portobello mushrooms with wine in delicate flaky pastry
Gourmet pizza – a healthy version with blue cheese and pear
Mushrooms in vodka – actually an extremely light vodka batter
