Going Vegetarian In A Country Whose Cuisine’s Highlights I

Going vegetarian in a country whose cuisine’s highlights involve a lot of meat based dishes does not have to mean that you are distancing yourself from your culture and heritage. ⠀

This is a vegetarian haggis with tattie scones and poached eggs by ⠀
@bowlfullasoul, my partner this week for my project #acrosskitchenlines where I am cooking 🥘 local food with Chefs and Homecooks all over the 🌏. ⠀
.⠀
People like Nikola, vegan-izing traditional dishes which were originally meat based is more than just tweaking the recipes. ⠀
.⠀
It is this generation’s way of redefining the culture. By replacing meat with plant based alternatives, you can still keep a lot of other main ingredients the same and achieve the texture, appearance and feel of the the original dish. ⠀

From Nikola: “I’m Nicola, born and live in Glasgow, Scotland but an avid traveller. I was a travel agent for 10 years when I was younger and have visited over 40 countries. I’ve also spent a month in the Amazon jungle with an indigenous tribe and 3 months in India studying yoga and been diving with sharks 😁 ⠀
.⠀
My mum and gran taught me how to cook but I’ve been inspired and taught, since then, by people from so many different cultures. Food and learning about new cultures is one of my favourite things about travelling.⠀
.⠀
Im also a social worker and work for an NGO supporting women and girls – card carrying feminist 😁⠀
.⠀
My favourite books are dystopia fiction, 1984 (orwell), brave new world (huxley) and Fahrenheit 451 (bradbury) are amongst my favourites.⠀
.⠀
My favourite food is Asian. I know that is very broad, so is my taste in food 😁”⠀
