Falafel Buddha Bowl

4 Quick and Easy Vegetarian Summer Recipes

With warmer weather on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to enjoy simple and speedy dishes bursting with fresh and seasonal flavours and these four vegetarian recipes fit the bill.

Each also includes walnuts – a great choice for veggies due the fact they are the only tree nut to contain a significant amount of the plant-based omega-3, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) (2.7g/ 30g) and a handful* offers 4.4g of protein.

With solutions for every meal and snack occasion, these delicious summer recipes show just how easy it is to incorporate walnuts into vegetarian dishes throughout the day.

So, this summer, give these recipes a go for delicious yet quick and simple vegetarian solutions.
