During the month of March, we’ll be posting a vegetarian recipe each week for you to try at home. If you eat a balanced diet, then a meal without meat once or twice a week won’t have a negative impact on your health and it’s a great opportunity to introduce the kids to vegetarian dishes and get them eating more vegetables.
Our first vegetarian recipe is Spanish omelette – a great Mediterranean dish that the whole family is sure to enjoy. Although the traditional Spanish omelette (or Tortilla to give it the correct name) is made using only potatoes, adding some other vegetables will brighten it up and add extra flavours.
Slide the omelette onto a large board and cut into wedges.
Serve with a salad of mixed leaves with the dressing of your choice.
Salads are a healthy choice any time of the year and there are so many varieties available in the big supermarkets nowadays. A ready washed salad is always handy, but why not try spicing things up by adding a little extra to your salad? A great addition to a lettuce based salad is thinly sliced red cabbage – it brightens up the salad, adds some extra texture and brings some much needed vitamins and minerals during the winter months. Grate in a carrot for extra colour and crunch.
