Food: Eleven Ace Meat-Free Recipes
Yesterday a really rad book arrived in the mail. It’s called Whole Larder Love (read the blog of the same name here) and it’s a robust, beautiful cookbook which focuses on eating seasonally, heartily, ethically and extremely deliciously. Ace. It got me itching to get into the kitchen and bang some pots and pans together. It made me want to head straight to the nearest Farmer’s Market this weekend and grab some kale or baby leeks or pumpkin. Yum.
I think it’s great to eat what’s in season. And I think we would all do well to take a leaf out of the Whole Larder Love book, and try to adapt the Hunt, Grow, Gather lifestyle (although perhaps I might forgo the shooting my dinner bit!) You can see Rohan’s book here.
It’s not meat free, but it’s all about eating ethically and well. It’s about making the best kind of delicious choices each day.
Now, while you are waiting for Whole Larder Love to land on your doorstep, you can look at this recipe collection I have compiled for you. I thought we’d go meat free altogether and stick to the delicious comfort of vegetable only meals. These meals are rustic and generous and full of flavour, perfect for this weekend, or any time, really. Click through and see. (The recipe links are under each image, FYI.)
How about you? Do you go meat free? Or do you work hard to eat ethically? Or do you just love food? What are your thoughts on conscious eating, guys?
