Many cuisines across the world have developed without an abundance of meat and feature vegetables loud and proud in their favourite dishes. Some also have religious or other cultural reasons for avoiding meat. These different approaches to food provide ample inspiration for nutritious vegetarian and vegan recipes that don’t stint on flavour. In the next few food posts we will feature dishes that are known and loved by Green Southwellers for you to try!
The first in this mini-series is a recipe from BBC Food and is recommended by GS stalwart, Helen.
If you’re looking for locally sourced seasonal veg for your curry, we have previously mentioned The Milkshed at the Real Milk Company in Halam, the veg truck nearby and Maxies Farm shop. There is also a stall at the Southwell market square on Thursdays and also Hills Farm shop at Edingley (Friday – Sunday) all of which provide great seasonal veg without supermarket food miles.
Finally, if you’re looking for a great veggie curry locally without all the effort of cooking, the Mughal Rasoi and Khyber Pass both have some great options. The Mughal Rasoi has a vegetable thali, which is a full meal comprised of various veggie curries whilst the Khyber Pass has a filter on their website that enables you to choose from their vegetarian recipes without effort. A selection of their vegetable side dishes is my go-to, but whatever you choose, make sure you try the brinjal bhaji!
