National Vegetarian Week

 

Look who’s supporting this year’s National Vegetarian Week: Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley, Ella Mills and many more… enjoy veggie food this National Vegetarian Week.

 

New ingredients

New and exciting veggie food products are launched regularly, but it’s not possible or affordable to try them all.

But one ingredient that I’m definitely going to try is jackfruit.

You will see it on supermarket shelves and also in restaurants. It comes in cans, has a savoury flavour and the texture of pulled pork.

I am reducing the amount of meat that we eat as a family, so it’s definitely going to be on my shopping list soon. If we like jackfruit it may be in future Dairy Diary recipes!

Tamarind paste is another ingredient that is new to me. It’s made from the fruit of the tamarind tree and has a sweet/sour taste. Although unfamiliar in the UK, it is a key ingredient in Worcestershire sauce, which has been around for almost 200 years!

Tamarind paste is used in this Nasi Goreng recipe, from the Quick After-Work Cookbook, and is stir-fried with garlic, ginger and chilli just before the rice is added.

This mouthwatering vegetarian recipe takes just 15 minutes to make and is an excellent weekday meal when you’re short of time.

Please share with us any new ingredients that you have used recently – who knows, they could appear in the next Dairy Diary!
