Spring is finally here, bringing with it the vibrant fresh fruits and veggies we’ve all been missing. With all this variety, it’s the perfect time to try new vegetarian recipes and explore lighter dishes that allow the flavours of all the fresh produce to take center stage. In addition to being incredibly flavourful, eating vegetarian is good for you and the planet, too! For example, did you know that replacing meat with veggies and vegetarian protein, even just a few times a week, can help us reduce carbon and greenhouse emissions? Ready to get started with some of our favourite vegetarian recipes? Here are five our favourites:
Meatballs are a classic crowd pleaser, and this meatless version is no exception. Chickpeas, quinoa, and mushrooms come together to create a meaty texture that’s super satisfying. Our Authentica Siciliana sauce lends its earthy, sweet flavour perfectly balancing this delicious vegetarian recipe.
