Vegetarianism is on the rise, whether for health, religious or compassion reasons, so more and more diners are looking for vegetarian option on your menu. But do you cater well enough to this growing market? Despite many chefs specialising in meat-centric dishes, changing eating habits require chefs to widen their skill sets to remain successful. Other than specifically vegetarian restaurants, most menu’s offer scant and often unappealing vegetarian options.
That’s where ‘creative vegetarianism’ comes in. Rather than just the garden salad or plain pasta with sauce and cheese, more chefs are coming up with ways to really hero vegetarian items in very interesting and delicious ways. Countrywide Distributors stock items that lend incredibly to the creation of wonderful and appealing vegetarian dishes. Here are a few of our suggestions:
- Chargrilled vegetables with minted pea arancini balls and pearl cous cous, dressed with a sauce or dressing of your choice.
- Vegetarian burgers with Milk Buns, carrot and lentil patties, hommus and pickled and fresh veggie slaw – add sauce and cheese of your choice.
- Loaded veg salad of brown rice &/or quinoa, greens, corn, cherry tomato, crumbed eggplant slices, asparagus, olives, croutons and pomegranate seeds – add dressing of choice and feta/goats cheese/haloumi.
