Vegetarian Cooking Fun - Some Simple Ideas

Monday, 18 June 2012

We all know that vegetarian cooking is healthy but can something that is good for us also be fun? I want to show you that heatlhy vegetarian cooking can be fun to do and fun to eat.

When we are cooking for children it can be important to be able to make food fun. Even if we want to prepare a meal for ourselves or friends it can add lot to meal if we can make it fun.

Perhaps the most obvious way to make a vegetarian meal fun is to barbecue. A cook out will always be fun, even when it rains. But can vegetarian food be barbecued? The answer to that is yes.

Many vegetables can be grilled on the barbecue. Fresh corn cobs barbecue well, as do peppers. These can be laid directly on the bars of the grill. Tomatoes should be pierced with a sharp knife first to prevent them exploding. Vegetables such as potatoes can be wrapped in aluminum foil and cooked more slowly at the edge of the grill. The same technique can be adopted with many other root vegetables.

Baked carrots, parsnips and sweet potatoes are all delicious done in this way. You can coat them in oil first, add some thyme and garlic cloves and wrap them up in foil parcel. You may like to add some balsamic vinegar to get a really rich taste. Younger palates may prefer a honey glaze.

Instead of burgers and other meat products you can make burgers out of cooked beans. Simply mash a selection of different coloured beans such as cannellini beans and kidney beans and form them into patties. A little egg may be used to help them hold their shape. They can be seasoned with salt and pepper, fresh herbs, chopped onion, garlic and chilli.

Cook them briefly on either side until they are brown and serve them on a bun with tomato relish and pickles. You may use a bought burger bun, but it also possible to make bread over a barbecue. simply wrap some bread dough around a stick and place it over the grill. It will rise and cook into a sort of curly bread stick. Children love doing this.

Even if the weather is too bad to cook out of doors making bread must rate as one of the most fun ways to cook vegetarian food. An afternoon spent in the kitchen with the smells of new baked bread counts as one of life's great experiences.

Add a simple vegetarian salad or a soup and you have a complete meal. Add a bottle of wine and you have a supper for friends.

What about desert? Always remember that chocolate is a vegetarian food. A fondue of cheese sauce and a selection of fruits, cakes and biscuits to dip into it will make the perfect end to a vegetarian meal.
