My First Post!


My name is Vicky, and I'm a veggie living in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

I went veggie when I was 11-ish (exact age is lost in the mists of time!) and, as the only veggie member of my family, I had to learn to cook for myself pretty quickly. I'm no culinary genius and there have definitely been some mistakes, but I've loved learning more about food and am keen to share my own recipes as well as those I've tried from elsewhere.

 I think vegetarian food has moved on so far from the old 90's options of nut loaf (hence my blog title!) or vegetarian lasagne, and yet people still often ask me what vegetarians eat. As tempting as it is to give a sarcastic answer (erm, think of all the things that aren't meat.... and you've answered your own question) it's probably better to answer that by showing you.

 I hope that you'll try the recipes and ideas that I post, I'll do my best to make them cheap, easy, delicious and sometimes even healthy.

Enjoy, and if you do try something don't forget to tell me what you think!

  1. It's funny that people always ask what we eat! My flatmate Hannah is a lifelong veggie and so am I, and at the moment we keep trying to think of what meat-eaters eat! (Steak? Beef stew? Chicken fajitas??) I actually find it quite difficult to think of any meals involving meat...

    Glad to see you've got the blog up and running, anyway! I've followed and liked! :)

  2. Yeah, and half the time the people asking what we eat are the ones who've been eating the exact same fish-fingers-chips-beans dinner every day of their lives. Sigh.

    Thanks for the support! :)
