Vegetarian Xmas Lunch

Carrot, ginger and coconut soup


Not only did I find that great vegetarian magazine while I was in UK (see my last post here ), but I was also watching my favourite chef, Jamie Oliver, on Channel 4 TV.

I discovered they have a website with all his, and other chef's recipes on line! Go to Channel 4 TV

Jamie was making a chocolate semi-freddo. Find his recipe - here

We have never had much success with making proper ice cream, so this alternative looked great, and also not too hard.

Xmas lunch - Veggie nut roast with a red wine sauce

So our whole Xmas lunch was made up of recipes from either Vegetarian Living, or Channel 4 TV website.
Our menu:
Carrot, ginger and coconut soup
Vegetarian nut roast with a red wine sauce
Roasted vegetables and green peas
Chocolate semi-freddo

The soup recipe was straight from the Vegetarian Living magazine, and is also on our website - Carrot, ginger and coconut soup

This nut roast, from the - Channel 4 - site, was very good, but I personally prefer the nut roast recipe that is also on our site - Vegetarian Nutroast

For the roasted vegetables, we chopped up sweet potato, pumpkin and onion and tossed these with whole cloves of garlic in olive oil and black pepper and then roasted for about an hour, turning occasionally.

Chocolate semi-freddo


The semi freddo recipe came from the Channel 4 website.

I followed this recipe fairly closely, but used stevia instead of caster sugar.

And in the continuous attempt to avoid unhealthy foods, I replaced the crumbled meringues with finely chopped strawberries.

Still not too late to try some of these for your New Year's Day dinner!
