Peas don’t forget it’s Vegetarian Day!

Here at Hunters of Helmsley we’re looking forward to World Vegetarian Day, an occasion that takes place each year on the 1st of October. The day was established by the North American Vegetarian Society (the N.A.V.S) in 1977 and has since gone on to be celebrated in schools, restaurants and homes across the globe.

The N.A.V.S state their cause as hoping to ‘promote the joy, compassion and life-enhancing possibilities of vegetarianism’ whilst bringing awareness to the ‘ethical, environmental and humanitarian benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle’.

Hunters love to enjoy vegetarian fare from across the globe and we are proud to stock veggie delicacies to appeal to herbivores and meat-eaters alike!

Starting out with something deliciously hearty during the run up to the winter months, who could resist a cheese and leek puff pastry? Packed full of flavour, these homemade delights are freshly baked in Helmsley and sure to tantalise your taste buds!

Speaking of cheese… why not pick up a fabulous fromage to accompany your tasty vegetarian meal? Some parmesan could add pizzazz to pea risotto, whilst zingy stilton is sure to give your favourite broccoli soup a touch of opulence, and a classic quiche could only be made even more delicious with the addition of a quality cheddar cheese.

Perhaps you’re longing for a warming bowl of soup to savour whilst autumn creeps in? We carry a range of Yorkshire Provender broths, soups and bisques amongst others. A particular favourite here is the pea and spinach with fresh mint, a tasty flavour which is perfect for getting those greens in.

Those seeking something slightly unusual can take a look at Macsween’s Vegetarian Haggis, a real treat come Burns Night, or any other night of the year for that matter! And once you’re full to the brim with savoury sustenance it’s good to know that many chocolates are suitable for vegetarians. We carry a vast range of the sweet stuff including treats from Yorkshire Lauden, Whitakers and Ampleforth Plus.
