vegetarian dishes

Okay, let's be honest...the French, a great meat loving nation, don't understand why anyone would want to be vegetarian. But they do recognise that some people don't want to eat meat, for whatever reason, and so increasingly dishes are being adapted to meet their specific requirements.

Gone are the days when if you asked for something vegetarian in a restaurant you either got a salad, or were asked if you ate fish!

Here are a few dishes that will suit vegetarians, or which can be adapted by them to their own taste.


try these...

Asparagus with Hollandaise sauce – enjoy them as a starter, or as part of a main course.
