OK, so some time ago we decided to go Vego at Home at home while my vegetarian niece was living with us. Well, she has arrived. No meat has crossed the thresh-hold for a week and a day.
So has it make any difference eating Vego at Home so far? Well, I have noticed that I don’t feel the need for alcohol with my vegetarian meals, though, out of habit I have had a little wine with some meals. I thought it would feel that we were eating lighter, but actually we seem to be substituting starch in the evening meal (potatoes and bread) where before we may not have had any at night. Like these two meals:
This dish was adapted from something on the cover of an Australian Gourmet Traveller magazine.
And this one Emily’s mother emailed to her. Again we varied it by using asparagus instead of the recommended broccoli, because that’s what we had in the fridge.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed both these meals and some others that we’ve had. So Vego at Home thing will continue. Watch this space…
