Spanish Recipes – Vegetarian

This group of easy Spanish recipes is perfect for the growing number of vegetarians and vegans in Spain, or who love Spanish flavours but without the meat or fish.
A huge number of Spanish dishes make use of fresh vegetables and a variety of pulses and beans – not to mention the amazing cheeses!.
This group of recipes enables you to enjoy the hearty goodness of these. They can all be enjoyed as side dishes but are in their own section because they can also be enjoyed as standalone dishes.
