Vegetarian comfort food recipes

For when you need something a little more indulgent but still want to keep it meat-free, browse through our collection of vegetarian comfort food recipes for all sorts of decadent (and cheesy!) delights.

Whether you’ve been a vegetarian for years or you’re looking to explore the world of plant-based recipes, these dinners are fine examples of the feel-good meals that can be made with vegetables, legumes, and grains. Vegetarian comfort food doesn’t need to mean you miss out on the classics either. From a buttery shepherd’s pie, to mushroom curry, cannelloni to lasagne, these dinners will leave you feeling well looked after.

We have creamy pasta bakes, double carb delights like a potato risotto, cheesy casseroles and hearty stews. If it’s brunch you seek, you’ll find sweet treats like a double chocolate pancake stack or a simple shaksuhka.

Whether it’s a rainy day or you’re seeking a cosy evening in front of the tele, these vegetarian delights are filling and guaranteed to bring you happiness on a winter’s day. So go on, have a scroll through. With all this veggie comfort food on offer, we think you’ll agree that a meal doesn’t need to be full of meat to satisfy.
