Veg out with Borderfields for Veggie Month…

Vegetarian food can be fun, tasty and very varied, and National Veggie Month this March is the perfect time to give it a try and discover some new –meat-free favourites.

People are drawn to vegetarianism for all sorts of reasons and one of the main drivers is the health benefits associated with a vegetarian diet.

Eating vegetables provides numerous health benefits – people who eat more vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy lifestyle are likely to have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases. At the same time, vegetables provide nutrients vital for the health and maintenance of your body.

Fatty red meats are known for being high in saturated fat which raises LDL (bad) cholesterol and can lead to heart disease. This makes the vegetarian lifestyle a popular choice with those watching their heart.

Another easy win is to start using cold pressed rapeseed oil in place of other cooking oils in the kitchen. Borderfields contains a near perfect balance of omegas 3, 6 and 9, and just 6% saturated fat. This compares to most Olive Oils at 14% and Sunflower Oil at 10%. Additionally, cold pressed rapeseed oil is not chemically processed, contains no additives and is 100% natural with nothing added or taken away – what you see in the bottle comes straight from the seed. This makes it a naturally better choice for all your home cooking.

In celebration of National Veggie Month we’ve teamed up with online food hub, to bring you an inspiring meat-free recipe. Mushrooms are a favourite ingredient in vegetarian recipes because they contain more than twice the amount of protein as other vegetables plus they taste great too! So, if you’re looking to embrace Veggie Month or are just looking for a tasty starter to bring to the table, give this recipe a go.
