Keralan veggie curry

Meat Free Week


Meat Free Week is a global campaign to get you thinking about how much meat you eat, and the impact eating too much has on your health, animals and the environment. We're not just talking about red meat (beef, lamb and pork), but all meat, including poultry, processed meat (like ham, bacon, salami and packaged sandwich meats), fish and seafood.

So this weeks recipe is one to help anyone who is wanting inspiration for recipes whilst they are on their meat free campaign, or just for anyone who fancies giving something different a go (also obviously for those of you who are vegetarians already).
