National Vegetarian Week May 14, 2017 07:00

National Vegetarian Week is here and there’s no better time to get mouth-watering recipe inspiration from chefs, bloggers and fellow vegetarian foodies.

Growth in meat-free dining has been huge. While the number of committed vegetarians has stayed relatively stable in the UK, many non-vegetarians are reporting they are reducing their meat consumption and yet more say they would like to in future.

There are so many reasons to think about becoming vegetarian – the treatment of animals, environmental concerns, a healthier diet. But this can feel like an overwhelming task, especially for those who haven’t had much previous experience making vegetarian meals.

This week is all about trying things out – new products, dishes, recipe twists – to discover lots of tasty and exciting ways to enjoy veggie eating. And it certainly doesn’t have to be difficult with so many tasty options.

For example, have you ever tried our Hot & Sour Vegetarian Duck Broth? Using our innovative Vegetarian Shredded Hoisin Duck, it’s delicious served with noodles and is super quick and easy to make! 

So whether you’re wondering if you really could go veggie or just want to try something new – Linda McCartney’s has got you covered!

L for Linda by Mary McCartney April 29, 2016 10:21

This week, Mary McCartney has written a moving newsletter for her recipe website P for Peckish. Have a read for yourself below as she fondly remembers the importance her mother placed on food at the heart of family life, be sure to check out her recipes too!

“L for Linda, my mother, the woman who was the key to igniting my love for vegetarian cooking. Growing up she made sure that the kitchen was the go to room in our home, most days I would be drawn in by the aroma of what she was cooking. She made it look easy and enjoyable, the results were always mouth wateringly delightful.

This month I posted some of my favourites from her cookbook On Tour, a gorgeous Asparagus and Lemon Risotto - as asparagus are back in season! The Sicilian Bean and Potato Salad is something I love to make for lunch, so satisfying and a great source of protein.”
