Top 5: Vegetarian Blogs

My Darling Lemon Thyme, Cookie + Kate, Love & Lemons, Naturally Ella, Sprouted Kitchen

You'll be cooking like the pros (we're talking Yotam Ottolenghi kind of pros) with these awesome veggie-forward blogs.   1. My Darling Lemon Thyme Emma Galloway, a Kiwi living in Australia, started her blog in 2010. It's since become beloved by vegetarians and omnivores alike, all wanting to recreate the colourful, family-friendly gluten free recipes. With equal measures of sweet and savoury, plus help with the essentials, such as a deliciously simple recipe for harissa paste and even a gluten-free pastry, Emma's blog will inspire you to whip up your own tasty recipes.

    3. Love & Lemons Jeanine and Jack love lemons. And each other. So Jeanine cooks, and Jack taste tests, and sometimes even writes a post himself. It's the perfect setup, and so is everything else about this blog, which has the most beautifully styled, and deliciously composed dishes... You'll never want to look at a piece of meat again (jk... sort of.) IMG_0014-cropped2

Try this: Fig & ricotta flatbread pizza

  4. Naturally Ella Live Naturally, Be Healthy, Eat Delicious - that's Erin's food philosophy. It's the sort of casual happiness that permeate's her jam-packed site, which features recipes that are widely appealing, such as the Romesco and Hummus Grilled Cheese or the Groovy Bagel Melt. IMG_8207

Try this:  Roasted Butternut Squash, Quinoa, and Jalapeño Chimichurri Tacos

    5. Sprouted Kitchen Winner in the category for 'best original recipes' in Saveur's 2013 Best Food Blog Awards, Sprouted Kitchen has long been a favourite in the foodie world. The droolworthy photographs capture the cooking process, and well as the picture-perfect end product – usually imaginative combinations of spice, colour and nourishment. Founders Sarah Forte (who creates the recipes, makes the dishes and writes the words) and husband Hugh (who takes the photos and eats the food) will be releasing their second book this April. chili_tofu_with_pom03
