Vegetarian Week Giveaway & NCR Challenge

National Vegetarian Week is drawing to a close and I wanted to see it out with a bang.

As well as congratulating the winner of this month's No Croutons Required and announcing the challenge for June, I thought it might be nice to offer you the chance to win a veggie product you may not have tried before, one that is particularly tasty and particularly Scottish.

Vegetarian Haggis.

It is a very versatile ingredient. It is traditionally served with neeps and tatties, but it is equally delicious served in a crepe, in a pasty, in a wrap or shaped into pakora, the options are as endless as your imagination.

If you would like to be entered into my giveaway, then simply leave a comment. This giveaway is open to everyone. If you don't have a blog, then please leave me your name and email address.

And now on to No Croutons Required, the monthly vegetarian soup and salad challenge. This month I would like you to create a vegetarian soup or salad featuring the humble courgette or zucchini as it is sometimes known.

If you have been inspired by National Vegetarian Week and would like to enter a soup or salad, then email me at

* your name
* the name of your blog
* your blog url
* your location
* the name of your dish
* a link to the post featuring your dish
* a photo of your dish

Entries must be in by the end of day on the 20th June 2010. This is also the deadline for entering the giveaway. These are two separate competitions that are running side by side to celebrate the vegetarian diet. The roundup of entries will be announced on the 21st June 2010 along with the winner of the giveaway.

And now we must congratulate Janet over at Taste Space who won this month's challenge with her gorgeously sumptuous Mexican Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing.

Janet receives this sweet little badge to display on her blog. If you would like to win one, then make sure you enter.
