I've been inspired by the week 3 flight to the UK challenge, to share some veggie food from the British Isles with you. So here are recipes 4-6, in no particular order:
UK recipe #4
Ploughman's lunch: a very traditional cold plate of crusty bread, good cheese, pickles and apple. A favourite pub lunch for vegetarians and those steering clear of deep fried fair.
UK recipe #5
Pea and mint soup: a refreshing summer soup, hot or cold. Delicious. Works without addition of any fat too.
UK recipe #6
Apparently from Holland and America:
Coleslaw: best made with sweet white cabbage, this is one of my favourites. A recent article in the Guardian details lots of recipes:
But I prefer this one, with a mediterranean twist, and lemon juice instead of mayonnaise. It makes a very satisfying, healthy and low-cal lunch, with smoked fish or a piece of nice cheese.
