Paella Verdures

This recipe showcases summer vegetables like courgettes and fresh peas. Sweet pimentón
(ground red pepper) and saffron are essential to any authentic paella.

Rosti with Mushrooms

Meat Free Monday Cookbook

Rösti is a Swiss dish made by forming grated potato into cakes or patties, which are then fried. The outer flakes caramelise delectably during the frying, while the insides remain soft.

Spinach Tart

Meat Free Monday Cookbook

Spinach is good for you, being rich in iron, Vitamin A and antioxidants — but it is also one of the tastiest vegetables around. It goes particularly well with cheese, as in this scrumptious tart.
