So turkey crown and lamb.... sorted!

    Have a rep!

    I am going for turkey + a veggie option for my DIL and a homemade pud a meringue toffee thing or a banoffee pie. I am stuck for a vegetarian starter to save me having to make 2 . Any ideas - something easy to make which will get me brownie points with the family. I usually make a pan of broth but I can't get it to taste the same when I don't add a big chunk of beef. help please!!

    My MIL is a veggie and she does lovely goats cheese tartlets sometimes, they could be a starter.

    Goat cheese is a real love it or hate it thing though, I'm veggie and HATE it but for some reason it is the current alternative to meat on many menus.

    Gruyere or smoked cheddar and caramelised onion tartlets are a fab idea though with smoe nice salad leaves and baby tomatoes on the side.

    You can make the tarts before hand using shop bought pastry too and just warm through in the oven on the day to save effort.

    i think they do a lot of goats cheese in veggie dishes to try and stop blandness, goats cheese is very strong
    we like quorn best (i am going to go to the start of the thread now and read lol , i didn't realise this was a veggie thread)

    editing,
    no it isn't , i'm not really with it at all today!!

    Some goats cheese is very mild - Ts do a soft goats cheese with a lovely creamy mild flavour - a delicious starter is fresh figs stuffed with this and baked for c. 10 mins, then drizzled with a little honey and balsamic vinegar. You can add chpped thyme or rosemary or chopped roasted walnuts or toasted pine nuts.

    I'm another veggie who hates goats cheese, and it does my head in the number of places that have goats cheese as the veggie option. Just seems very unimaginative to me.

    Although it is one step up from places that advertise fish as the veggie option!
    No longer a friend of Tesco. Farewell DTD.

    i like quorn the best, i don't really like the tesco meat free range at all,
    we also sometimes have cauldron
    i think they tend to make vegetarian food highly flavoured to compensate for no meat
    we prefer quorn to other brands
