Easy Recipes for One

We have included this Easy Recipes for One section because we understand the difficulties in catering for just one vegetarian or vegan. A few of these recipes are repeated, with larger ingredient quantities, in other sections. Equally, a number of the recipes in other sections can be adapted for one. Another way to tackle the 'catering for one' problem is to freeze extra portions. Alternatively, of course, caterers can offer a vegetarian option to everyone: many meat eaters love to sample healthy and nutritious veggie food from time to time.
