This creation was a result of my participation in the Meat-Free Monday initiative. As much as I enjoy vegetarian food, my husband is a self-confessed carnivore, so to keep him happy it is necessary for me to come up with interesting and tasty meat-free meals on Mondays. I love the idea of a savoury Tarte Tatin, and this was put together based on what I had in the fridge. It’s lovely served with a simple rocket and parmesan salad, and it also makes a gorgeous lunch dish.
I’ve recently joined the Meat Free Monday initiative, a campaign which encourages people to go without meat for one day a week to improve their health and the health of the planet. As I’ve dragged my carnivore husband into this Monday ritual, it’s important that whatever I cook is tasty and satisfying. This dish ticks all the boxes, with the added bonus that you’ll have it on the table in 15 minutes. Be warned, it is not only satisfying, but very rich and a little goes a long way! Serve with a simple green salad to refresh the palate.
Meat Free Monday is an international not-for-profit campaign which encourages people to go without meat for one day a week to improve their health and the health of the planet. It’s a simple way you can reduce your ecological footprint and reconnect with food that is nutritious and good for you.

To partially prepare this dish in advance, omit the salt at step 2, cover and refrigerate and add the salt just prior to cooking. Continue Reading →
Mushrooms are a great meat substitute, and as I’m still on my detox (no meat allowed) this dish really satisfies. You can use any cheese – cheddar, Parmesan, feta, Swiss and goat’s cheese work really well. My preference is goat’s cheese (and it conforms with my detox eating plan). The chilli in the dressing gives it a nice bite, although you could leave it out if you’re not a fan. Continue Reading →
A dinner party dilemma that presents itself from time to time is when a guest you invite advises that they are vegetarian. Should you plan a meat-free meal and deprive your carnivorous guests? Or do you cook two separate meals and try to please everyone? Continue Reading →
