Vegetarian Fast Food for Easy Weekends

I love preparing big spreads and glorious feasts for friends and family but sometimes, especially during the long lazy weekends of summer, vegetarian fast food is a very appealing option. Sunny days and warm evenings call for quick and easy, tasty and nutritious food which doesn't require much time at a hot stove. Inspired by the cultures of the world which do this so well, I turn to tapas and mezze, to salads, frittata and stir fry - anything which can be on the table in about half an hour!


Cooking dishes using the best seasonal ingredients sourced locally, foraged from field or hedgerow or grown in your own garden, quickly cooked and slowly eaten is one of life's simplest pleasures - each of these recipes makes the most of summer's abundance.
