Hopefully you’ve all risen to the wonderful challenge the folks at Meat Free Week have set for us this week and that is…you guessed it, to go meat free!

Today we thought we’d highlight some of our favourite vegetarian recipes we’ve shared on the site over the last few years - which was a tough choice - but here they are in no particular order.

Chestnut, Spinach & Green Pea Soup

For many with European backgrounds, roasted chestnuts are the perfect symbol of winter-time but here at FoodFaith, with National Tree Day coming up this weekend, we thought what a wonderful time to celebrate the delicious and often underrated nut that grows on beautiful trees - the Chestnut. Head over to Chestnuts Australia for more info on chestnuts - growing them, harvesting and of course eating them!

Matzo Balls (Kneidlach)

Matzo Balls (Kneidlach)

This recipe is a mainstay of the Pesach (or Passover) meal on the Jewish Seder. It is one of many courses that those around the Seder table consume on one of the commemorative nights of Pesach. It is always regarded as a challenge to make a light matzo ball! Those who have experienced many Passovers will know that it is wise to stop at one with your soup as they are very filling and there is a lot of food to come.

Turkish Lentil Soup

Chelsea Abraham from Bespoke Catering offers this scrumptious Turkish Lentil Soup, handed down from her grandmother. A vibrant orange from the red lentils, it can have added pizzazz with haloumi and/or fried onion. And, of course, traditional toasted Turkish bread makes it extra delicious! 

Molokhia with chicken

Molokhia with chicken

This delicious dish from FoodFaith gardeners, Samaher Choukchouk and Mona Maarabani, features the star vegetable, molokhia, which is often referred to as Egyptian spinach. It has its roots in Middle Eastern, East African and North African countries and is a perfect hearty dish to start a family meal or can feature on its own on cold winter nights. The vegetable has a certain glutinous texture.

Serbian bean soup (Pasulj)

Serbian bean soup (Pasulj)

Pasulj or Serbian bean soup is a dish common to the Baltic region with several variations.  It often features white, cranberry or pinto beans. It is a hearty winter recipe and is comforting to eat in the cooler months. Pasulj can feature different meats (often smoked) and baked beans can provide a vegetarian option. A perfect recipe for large gatherings! Thanks to Nenad Predic.
