Vegetarian One Day Course…with Piedmontese Peppers

We have just finished a very successful one day vegetarian cookery course. Here at the Gables, we love vegetarian food and encourage our students, even the determined meat eaters, to think of vegetarian food as an exciting and varied alternative menu. Students on our vegetarian courses are often interested not only in the health benefits of eating less meat but also in providing exciting food for their vegetarian friends, many of whom have been making do with second rate offerings for years!

To try and inspire you to add a little more vegetarian food to your diet, we are going to share with you one of our favourite vegetarian recipes from our book ‘Simply 3-5’ – Piedmontese Peppers. These Northern Italian peppers make a delicious starter or a light supper dish, with crusty bread to mop up the juices. They also happen to be vegan. Enjoy!
