Broader the Beans – Spring Vegetarian Kitchen

Vegetarian or not, Vegetarian Kitchen is a modern explosion of flavours and food combinations. This course will show you how to lay the foundations for modern vegetarian food. This is a truly inspirational take on cooking and eating without meat and fish.

Lesley has always been passionate about vegetarian dishes and has developed and written a number of vegetarian recipe books. Many of these gutsy and rustic recipes will be featured in Broader than Beans. Not so long ago everyday main meals would always include meat. Vegetables were very much second class citizens. How things have changed! The modern way of eating is combing good fresh ingredients – and often the majority of these are vegetables – to create masses of flavour and a healthier diet. Vegetable dishes have at long last taken a much deserved leading role. Lesley’s homely yet modern style is sure to inspire you to try some delicious and wonderful flavour combinations.
