7 Easy & Delicious Lunch Recipes For Vegetarian Week

Posted · 2nd May 2019

May is a beautiful time of year; spring has well and truly sprung, the weather is looking up and there are bountiful supplies of fruit and veg grown. It seems fitting then, that National Vegetarian Week should fall in May – this year from 13th to the 19th of the month.

As huge lovers of vegetarian and vegan food here at Cauldron, we thought it was only fitting that we provide a list of our top 7 lunch meals that we thought would see you through Vegetarian Week if you were taking the plunge for the first time – or even just need a little inspiration this year! All of the below recipes are either healthily protein packed, quick and easy, or perfect for work – we’ve even picked them specifically based on the day of the week that we think they would be perfect for! Did someone say meal plan?!
