National Vegetarian Week - Vegetarian Food Bloggers








I thought it would be nice to celebrate some of the best veggie and vegan food bloggers this week. I won't be able to include all of the wonderful veggie and vegan blogs I visit, but I would like to introduce you to a few of my favourites. Today I would like to introduce you to some of the best vegetarian food blogs.

1. Allotment 2 Kitchen



Vegan Chocolate Gingerbread Cake
Shaheen started her blog to highlight the meals she made with vegetables grown in her allotment.

Shaheen has been blogging since January 2009 and I've never known a more committed cook and blogger.

In the last four years Shaheen has blogged the most mouth watering meals on almost a daily basis.

Her food is the type that I want to eat. Hearty, honest food with big flavours that make the most of seasonal vegetables.

Shaheen may have started in her allotment just feeding her family, but now she feeds the lucky inhabitants of Newport, Wales from her cafe - Hunky Dorys.

If you're nearby, be sure to stop in and say hi, then tuck in. As well as vegetarian food, Shaheen now makes an exciting range of vegan food and cakes too.

2. Lisa's Kitchen








Kashmiri Chickpeas with Mushrooms
Lisa has to be one of my best buddies in blogland. We've been friends for years now and our biggest regret is that we live so far apart. I'm in Scotland and Lisa lives in London, Ontario.

Lisa has been writing her blog since 2007 and her speciality is spice. If you are looking for some tasty and authentic vegetarian Indian dishes, then Lisa is the woman to see.

Lisa has over a thousand appetising and healthy recipes to choose from. Mostly savoury dishes, but a also some exceptional sweet treats, so why not pop over there and have a look. You won't be disappointed!

Veggie Pot Pie Soup
Becca is a relatively new blogger, but you wouldn't know it from her blog and her gorgeous food photography. It all looks very professional and she reached that stage so very quickly. It just makes the rest of us, that have built up those skills over many years feel very old and slow, well me anyway!

Becca is in her twenties and lives in Liverpool. I don't know what to say about her food other than I love every single thing this girl blogs! Her food rocks and she seems to be really lovely girl too!

Australia Day Fudge
I was lucky enough to meet Johanna from Green Gourmet Giraffe recently. Cooper and I had a lovely day out in Edinburgh with Johanna and her little girl Sylvia. We had great fun exploring the Natural History Museum of Scotland, then in the evening we met up with Johanna's husband and Chele from The Chocolate.Teapot.

Johanna and her family live in Melbourne, Australia and she has been blogging since 2007.

Johanna blogs her family meals, which are real vegetarian comfort food. The kind that puts a smile on your face and leaves you feeling full and content. Oh and she has mastered many kinds of vegan cheese!

Her posts all include snippets of her day and the little amusing things her toddler does and says. Her posts are as comforting as her food and she is a delightful friend to have.

Vegan Hot Cross Buns
Lisa is the vegetarian mum of two teenage daughters. She used to be the food editor for a major parenting site, but once the girls went to school, she decided she needed a new job with a bit more real life company and channelled her passion for food into her blog.

Lisa has been writing her blog since 2010 and is another vegetarian blogger that cooks very down-to-earth vegetarian family meals that would please even the meatiest of meat eaters. 

Colourful, satisfying food that makes you want to tuck in. Oh to be able to dip a fork into the screen and have a taste.

Kung Pao Spaghetti
I don't know much about Claire form Chez Cayenne. I know she's from Texas and she's married, but that's about it. She really doesn't give much away.

What I do know is I love visiting her blog.

Waffles, burritos, spaghetti, focaccia, wraps, fritters........ Mmmmmm!

Her photos are clear, crisp and exciting! As Val over at More Than Burnt Toast would say, they are very droolworthy!

Quick! Go visit Claire!

Creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing
I only came across The Garden Grazer recently. I can only think I must have found the blog through Tastespotting or on Pinterest because the photos are stunning.

The Garden Grazer is written by Kaitlin. She and her husband are both vegetarian and her "goal is to make vegetarian cooking fun, simple, affordable, approachable, and of course delicious (to please both carnivores and herbivores alike)!" I can state categorically say that she does this 100%.

Kaitlin has only been blogging since early 2012, but her blog is very professional and a treat to visit.

I love reading comments, so thank you for taking the time to leave one. Unfortunately, I'm bombarded with spam, so I've turned on comment moderation. I'll publish your comments as soon as I can and respond to them. Don't panic, they will disappear when you hit publish. Jac x
