Meat Free Week Recipe Round-up

Did you know that this week is Meat Free Week? This national campaign that runs annually aims to raise awareness of how the meat we eat effects our health, the environment and animals. It also helps to raise money for worthwhile charities by challenging you to go meat-free for a week.
 
I am by NO means a vegetarian but I do like to be conscious of the amount of meat our family eats and also buy ethically farmed meat as much as possible.
 
Interested in reading more? Head over to www.meatfreeweek.org.
 
If you are thinking of embarking on the challenge or even just adding some meat-free options to your repertoire I've gathered a few of my recent ones, thrown in a new one and added a couple of sweet treats! Enjoy!

Vegetable Fritters

Ingredients

2 cups grated vegetables (I used pumpkin, capsicum and carrot)
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
Salt & Pepper
60g feta cheese diced
1 egg

 

Method

1. Grate vegetables and squeeze out any excess moisture
2. Whisk together milk and egg
3. Stir flour into vegetables until coated, stir in feta
4. Pour in milk and egg and mix to combine, season with salt and pepper
5. Heat oil in frypan, drop heaped spoonfuls of mixture (equivalent to 3 tbsp) to pan, flatten fritters slightly and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side
6. Transfer to plate lined with paper towel
7. Serve with yoghurt

  2. Wow. This looks delicious! I'm a veggo and wish I'd known it was meat free week, I could've cooked veggo for the whole family!! I love the mint colour on your blog. It's my favourite colour at the moment, and I've been looking for a way to incorporate it into my blog, when I get around to jazzing it up!!

    1. Oh I am addicted to mint, it's definitely 'my' colour!! A little hard sometimes to find complimentary colours for though!
