Easy vegetarian recipes

Prepared with fresh beetroot and cucumbers and cooked with minimal loss of nutrients, these vegetarian recipes make truly delicious summer dishes.

Both recipes are included in my vegetarian recipes section, but they are quite enjoyable an addition to any kind of menu. I do urge you to try both dishes.
