The Mr of our house recently stated that “we eat too much meat”. I took this a challenge to prepare and eat only vegetarian meals for a whole week (not long really, I know! BUT, I have a house full of meat lovers) and thankfully the very next day, Ross Dobson’s Fired Up Vegetarian arrived in the post for review! I love how serendipitous life can be on occasion.
This is one cracker of a vegetarian cookbook. The recipes really do work as complete meals even for my carnivorous family. The most amazing transformation for us was that it has even inspired the non-cooking Mr of the house to commit to cooking one vego meal each week! The flavours throughout are diverse including Asian, Middle Eastern, European and South American dishes and the book includes useful tips and advice for maximising your barbecue potential.
With Fathers Day coming here in Australia next Sunday, as a gift for Dad the author has kindly provided a recipe for us to share with Whipup readers and the good folks at Murdoch Books have provided us with a copy to giveaway to one lucky reader. Just comment below with your favourite vegetarian meal idea (I love a good recipe tip!).

Thanks to those who shared their recipes with me, Number 2 was chosen by the random number generator. Congratulations Catherine.
