TASTE OF THE RAINBOW: Vegetarian food can be more exciting than you might think, as food from three of our favourite London haunts proves

IF YOU had a great veggie Easter courtesy of The Voice’s inspirational suggestions, then we implore you to get out of your house over the next seven days and join in National Vegetarian Week.

National Vegetarian Week runs from 13 to 19 May and is a great time to celebrate plant-based living.

Graham Drummond, from the Vegetarian Society, said: “This year National Vegetarian Week offers some fun new things for you to try, such as tucking into a veggie full-English breakfast, sharing gelatine-free sweets, doing a dairy-free milk taste-test or choosing the tofu dish from the local Chinese takeaway.

“National Vegetarian Week is your chance to join millions enjoying amazing veggie food. Keep a look out for new recipes, tempting offers, and refreshed restaurant menus across the UK.”

Every day is the perfect time to start improving your diet and if you need a bit of a guiding hand, then this time of the year is perfect. Getting inspiration couldn’t be easier these days. Here are three of The Voice’s favourite spots to pick up an unusual, but tasty bite to eat…

Rainforest Creations

If you choose Engocha’s Ethiopian cuisine, then you’re going to need space. The Voice suggests sharing a five wot plate with a friend if you venture over to this north-west London haunt, and don’t worry about the Injera, they will bring more. Typical of the fare you find from the region, few do vegetarian like Ethiopia.

The Voice recommends: Tikil Gomen (curry potatoes, cabbage, and carrot), Shiro (roasted and ground chickpeas slow cooked in mild spices, garlic, tomato, onion, and olive oil sauce), Ater Kik (splits simmered with turmeric, and ginger) and rice. Contact on 020 7485 3838.
