Welcome to the veg files.

As a longtime vegetarian I started this blog as a place to share tips, recipes and general knowhow on maintaining a healthy vegetarian lifestyle. When I first became a vegetarian I was pretty lost and confused about just how to make sure I and my family got the right amount of nutrition, so I hope that this blog will help anyone out there who is feeling the same way. Of course, I hope this blog is useful to the old hands out there too!

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I know I will enjoy writing it.

Bread and butter pudding recipe.

If you find yourself with some leftover, slightly stale bread this is a great recipe for using it up.

a little butter.
2 eggs.
1/2 pint of milk.
2 oz sugar.
Dried fruit, raisins, sultanas, prunes whatever you have in the storecupboard.
Pinch of grated nutmeg.

Remove the crusts from the bread you have and then butter each slice well before cutting them into four triangles. Grease a shallow ovenproof dish and layer up the bread, spreading the dried fruit and a little sugar between each layer. Beat the milk and the eggs together and pour over the bread, leave to stand for thirty minutes. Sprinkle some sugar and nutmeg over the top and then bake in a moderate oven for thirty minutes. The top should be brown and almost caramelised. Serve hot with cream, ice cream or hot custard.
