Sometimes hitting your 5 a day can be a struggle, but never fear as we've come up with some scrummy dishes loaded with fresh produce and not a single overcooked pea or limp carrot in sight. And they all happen to be vegetarian!
Providing at least 2 of your 5-a-day, even confirmed carnivores will love these veggie midweek marvels.
Tofu katsu curry
This veggie version of the Japanese classic Katsu is bursting with flavour, not to mention 2 of your 5-a-day. Carrots blended into the sauce add sweetness and colour (a great way to sneak a portion of veg past even the fussiest of eaters), while the breaded tofu bites make great finger food for younger kids.
Jewels of the Med cous cous
Halloumi makes a great meat alternative thanks to its dense and filling texture. Carrots, peppers, pomegranate and mint add bags of colour to this halloumi and cous cous dish. Add whatever roasted veg you fancy — chunks of red onion, courgettes, beetroot, sweet potato and broccoli would all work with the salty cheese and juicy pomegranate in this dish.
tex mex hash with smashed avocado
Crunchy cucumber and carrot help to bulk up this tasty noodle dish while also providing 2 of your 5-a-day. Satay is a great sauce to master — it's made up of store cupboard essentials such as soy sauce and peanut butter and adds bags of flavour to even the most simple of noodle or rice dishes.
quorn courgetti Bolognese
Quorn is a fantastic meat alternative to have stashed in the freezer for even the most last-minute of midweek dinners. This Quorn courgetti Bolognese packs 3 of your 5-a-day into the dinnertime classic without compromising on flavour. Add a sprinkle of Cheddar or Grana Padano and you're good to go!
