World Vegetarian Day is upon us. So, let’s trot around the globe and look at delicious meat-free meals from around the world.
Check them out below:
This popular Roman pasta is made with just four ingredients. If you fancy making it at home, simply toast crushed peppercorns in a skillet for a couple of minutes, then cook your pasta in a separate pot with boiling salted water. Add some of that salted water to the skillet of peppercorns, then after a few minutes, transfer the pasta into the skillet. Sprinkle in your desired amount of grated Pecorino Romano, stir it in and allow that to all cook together – and then you’re done!
You can still enjoy sushi, filled with vegetables instead of meat or fish. Futomaki is usually about 6cm in diameter, so it’s quite thick. They’re wrapped in a sheet of roasted and dried seaweed, and still have a classic rice filling. They’re also filled with cucumber, seasoned gourd strips, shiitake mushrooms, carrots, or a range of other vegetables. Make sure you give this Japanese dish a try.
Doubles are a popular street food in Trinidad and Tobago, inspired by a similar Indian dish. They are made with curried chickpeas in between two pieces of baras (fried flatbread), drizzled with the likes of tamarind, pepper sauce and kuchela, and topped with cucumbers. Give this a shot and prepare for a mouth-watering explosion of flavours!
