1st 'pasta' post for meat eaters' favourite veggie meals

WHEN it comes to vegetarian meals, it seems we are a nation of pasta-lovers. According to the Vegetarian Society's findings from a recent survey, the Italian comfort food was the top choice of veggie meal for the 1,500 respondents who answered the question.

The poll was carried out ahead of National Vegetarian Week 2017 that held over 15 May to 21 May 2017, by the market research experts, YouGov, who surveyed meat eaters, pescetarians and vegetarians. Respondents were asked for their favourite vegetarian meal that doesn't include any kind of meat, poultry, fish or seafood.

Pasta was a clear winner gaining 16.3% of the vote, with salad taking second place with 7.3%. Our palates seem to also enjoy spicier flavours, with 6.3% of respondents opting for curry as their favourite, which took 3rd place. 4th and 5th places were very close, with pizza just stretching ahead of mac 'n' cheese with 5.7% and 5.6% of the votes respectively.

Other dishes that just missed out on the top slots included:- egg and chips, beans on toast, omelette, soup, baked potato and risotto.

Jen Elford, Head of Research and Information at the Vegetarian Society, said:- "These top 5 favourite vegetarian meals are foods that are familiar to all of us; which really helps bring home the message that enjoying veggie food is something everyone can do. National Vegetarian Week is the perfect excuse to get stuck in and enjoy more of your favourite veggie dishes."

Of course, as is the case with any survey, not all the answers given were sensible… there were a 'fusilli' ones!

National Vegetarian Week 2017 is taking place from 15 May to 21 May 2017, is proudly supported by TV chefs, the Hairy Bikers. For more information, please visit:- NationalVegetarianWeek.Org.
