Linda McCartney Foods searching for UK’s tastiest meat-free dish

The purveyors of frozen vegetarian and vegan friendly favorites such as spicy bean and sausage casserole, vegemince and toad in the hole—had to look that one up—are looking for the UK’s tastiest meat-free dish.

Linda McCartney Foods is currently conducting an online contest to locate the best flesh-free creation with the eventual winner taking home a Baumatic cooker, a kitchen table crafted by Titchmarsh & Goodwin valued at £4,000 and the opportunity to have their dish added to the company’s lineup of products.

Pretty good deal eh? But alas if you are not in the UK you are not eligible for the contest. The proof was in the details:

“This Competition is open to residents of the UK, Republic of Ireland, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.”

For more information or if you happen to reside in the Isle of Man and have a fantastic meat-free shepherd’s pie recipe click here.

  1. I'm looking for more recipes to post for "Meatless Mondays"...
    after having made it my New Year's Resolution to adopt the trend, some of us are posting creative and yummy recipes to keep it interesting, satisfying, and non-frustrating for people who are endeavoring to do the same.
    (...If Mondays go well, then Tuesday through Sunday have a chance to follow suit.)

    With that in mind, I'd love to hear about the submissions people contribute! ...I'm sure there are some experienced Vegetarians and Vegans out there with some excellent and family-friendly recipe ideas out there. Not everyone will win the prize... I'm across the pond, and thus ineligible. But there's still an audience for those ideas...and it would help what I think is a noble cause. =-)

    Best of luck with the contest!!! I'll be telling friends about it.
    Check Facebook.com for the 'Meatless Monday' page if you'd like to lend support... or find inspiration for your winning idea!

    It would be a sincere pleasure to honor Linda McCartney as well.

    Good Luck!
