It’s National Vegetarian Week (21st-27th May) and although I’m not as vegetarian I do adore well prepared vegetarian dishes. Like last year I’m going to be sharing some of my favourite veggie recipes over this week but I’ll also be looking into the health benefits of incorporating more veggie dishes into your diet.

After recently spending some time on Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day website I got reading some of his info-graphics which highlight stats on all sorts of food. One in particular caught my attention as it discussed the health effects of red meat.

Although I’ve always been aware that too much red meat can be unhealthy but I was shocked to read the actual facts of how dangerous it is. As too much red meat causes heart disease, cancer and significantly increases cholesterol, which gives all the more reason to really get stuck into delicious vegetarian meals this week.

So to kick start this year’s National Vegetarian Week I’m featuring a recipe from TV chef Rachel Khoo whose new cooking programme ‘The Little Paris Kitchen’ brings French cooking up to date- I’ve really enjoyed the series and its available to watch on iPlayer for those who want to catch up.

Rachel’s Wild Mushroom Terrine or Terrine Forestière as it’s known in France is a delicious choice and perfect for dinner parties as it can be prepared in advance. What I like most about this veggie terrine is how simple the ingredients are yet it’s a delight to eat. Most definitely a veggie dish which I’d recommend trying, enjoy!
