Make a Foodie Approved Hearty Vegetarian Dinner



Potato Cake made with AMT Pan

Comfort food should be warm, filling and hearty, but there’s no rule that it must include meat!
There are many reasons to eat less meat. For starters, it’s better for your health and the environment. Plant based meals tend to require less resources to farm and ship. Generally, there’s also less fat and calories in meatless meals. If you’re a bit intimidated by the thought of giving up your carnivorous habits, remember that there’s no need to commit to full out vegetarianism. You can dip your toe in the pool by trying out a couple meat-free meals a week to start off.

For starters, this foodie-approved meal is veggie packed and perfect to kick off your meatless journey. The rich flavours in this potato cakes and cabbage vegetarian recipe will please even the most committed of meat lovers.

Use a quality frying pan for efficient cooking and easy cleanup, like a pan from the award-winning AMT cookware line. AMT products have phenomenal nonstick qualities and a 25-year warranty. An extra sharp knife will make even quicker work of cooking. The F.Dick Red Spirit Santoku knife fits the bill perfectly for a high performance blade that stays sharp.
