One of my friends (RemyTextiles) is a vegetarian and always seems to have really lovely sounding meals. In my ignorance I had always thought that vegetarian meals would be boring and lacking because there was no meat. But the more I thought about it, I realised I wanted to try some recipes and set myself the challenge of being “A Vegetarian For a Week”.
So, today was my first day with no meat and my dinner was actually brilliant! I found the recipe on the BBC website, Good Food. It’s sweet potato and red lentil dahl (which I had never previously tried). It was pretty simple to make which is always great because being a student I can get lazy when it comes to cooking home meals. It was delicious and I will definitely be trying it again. And even though it had no meat, it was still filling!
I also noticed that when I went for my food shop this weekend, that the total was cheaper than it usually is; the only difference being that it was all fresh fruit and veg that I had purchased. So, perhaps including more vegetarian food within my normal diet will actually benefit me in more than just my appetite!
I seriously suggest giving this recipe a go!
