Vegetarian dishes may be different in preparation and ingredients but they don’t have to lack flavour, colour or texture. If you’re considering going vegetarian and need a few reasons to commit, then you’re in the right place.

Well, allow us to dispel that myth and give you more than a few reasons and five great vegetarian recipes
that are quick and easy to prepare and will get you started on your transition into a healthier lifestyle.
