It's National Vegetarian Week! Whether you're a committed carnivore, vegetarian, vegan, or something in between, these really quite easy and delicious recipes will not disappoint.

Protein powerhouse veggie burgers

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR PROTEIN, THOUGH? It's a common question for vegetarians and vegans alike (with some quite simple answers, such as this better-than-beef burger). Switch the dairy products in the sauce for vegan ones, if you'd prefer.

Nigerian beans and rice

A filling, tasy, quick dish (that's, again, full of protein). Perfect pre- or post-night out - or, you know, pre- or post-epic workout, or something...

White bean chilli with vegetarian sausages

This is great comfort food - and especially great when you're craving a bit of cruelty-free carnivorousness (use whatever fake meat you like). Its really nutritious too, and easily veganisable.

Huevos rancheros

This is a traditional Mexican breakfast meal - but things this delicious know no mealtime boundaries. It's a flexible dish; you can pitch the spice levels to your tastebuds, choose ingredient quantities according to your preferences, and could even customise for a vegan version.

Butternut squash risotto


If you haven't tried butternut squash risotto, just do. Butternut squash can often be bought at low prices at markets, or a huge pumpkin might be even better value and feed your whole house!

Jamaican fritters


Mmm, fried things. These vegetable fritters are a definite crowd-pleaser (or you might want to eat them all yourself. Also good).

Mushroom and spinach bolognese


This easy and wholesome receipe byJack Monroe costs 38p per portion. You could make a huge batch of it and keep it for when cooking is the last thing on your mind.

Punjabi dal makhani


This lentil dish is so flavoursome and creamy (you could use vegan 'dairy' if you prefer). Bonus: it tastes even better reheated the next day.
