From the 1st – 7th of September, it’s the UK’s, Love Lamb Week! While this week traditionally involves showing appreciation of lamb meat and consuming lamb dishes, we thought there was a better way you could love lambs, by not eating them! That doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the food that other people are eating this week, though.
So, fire up the BBQ, put on an apron and get creative in the kitchen with these 5 tasty recipes.
5 Lamb-Friendly and Vegan ‘Love Lamb Week’ Recipes
Perfect with a healthy side salad and some roast potatoes, or served over a bed of steamed rice, this hearty curry is a wonderful replacement for lamb korma or spicy lamb vindaloo. Whether it is slow-cooked or quickly whipped up, this recipe is versatile and forgiving. Also, leftovers (if you have any) freeze well for re-heatable, lazy day meals. You can find the recipe here.
This easy to follow, instructional video shows you how to make a vegan roast lamb! Served hot or cold, and finished with a sweet drizzle of pomegranate molasses, this dish is unlikely to last long once it’s put on the table. You can find the recipe here.
Doubtful that lamb chops can be veganzied? This recipe shows why should think again. Seitan used in place of lamb gives this dish a remarkably similar taste and texture to the original. The ‘chops’ even get crispy once pan-fried, and the spices and seasonings complete the dish, if you’re willing to try it. You can find the recipe here.
According to the recipe creators, ‘all you need to know is that this burger is meat eater tested and totally approved.’ Enough said? Next time you’re trawling the supermarket for burger buns and fillings, try picking up the ingredients for this bad-ass, plant-based lamb burger too. (and yes, we will take fries with that.) You can find the recipe here.
Instead of using lamb meat, this recipe calls for soy nuggets or TVP chunks that are browned first, to make them chewier and mimic the texture of meat. Just like a lamb stew, this meal is packed with protein, and is also a powerhouse of comforting flavor! You can find the recipe here.
These tasty creations really do celebrate ‘all things good about lamb’. Now you can enjoy Love Lamb Week whilst looking at pictures of these guys. N’aww!
