Vegetarian week challenge

It's National Vegetarian Week next week - the annual awareness-raising campaign promoting inspirational vegetarian food and the benefits of a meat-free lifestyle; I'm doing my bit to promote the event, by setting you all a foodie challenge (whether you're veggie already, or not!)

If you're not vegetarian, I'm challenging you to adapt a meat/fish based recipe to make it vegetarian, by swapping the meat/fish for a meat substitute, pulses, dairy products or just leaving it out and adding extra vegetables.

If you're already vegetarian, I'm challenging you to adapt a vegetarian recipe and make it vegan.

If you don't want to join in with these challenges, but you're featuring Vegetarian Week on your blog, or you have a vegetarian/vegan recipe you would like to share, then please link up too.

Edit - Thanks to everyone who linked up!

    Thanks Nikki! No, not too late at all.

  8. Thank you for the challenge and I accept with great hopes, as I had totally botched World Vegetarian Week which ended today. I'm a carnivore turned veggie who fell off the wagon and I've been crawling my way back. I look forward to sharing my recipes of the week.
    I hope this message finds you safe, happy and healthy.

  10. I've been a vegetarian for over 5 years and would like to challenge myself by going vegan for a week (or maybe more!) I love to cook and bake and look forward to learning new recipes :)

  11. Great to celebrate an important week that reminds us just how tasty veggie food can be. I have linked up, better late than never.
