5 family dinners that put humble veg in the hero role

Switch things up with week by reversing the usual meat-and-veg routine

It's time to do dinner a little differently: five family favourites turned on their heads, with veg the star of the show – meat the optional extra:

SUNDAY: CRISPY TOFU AND SHIITAKE MUSHROOM PHO

You can also trade the mushrooms for prawns, adding to the broth with the pak choi

MONDAY: ROASTED PUMPKIN, CHICK PEA AND SPINACH CURRY

In the mood for meat? Tegel's Meal Maker Classic Sliced Chicken can answer your call

TUESDAY: KALE AND RADISH TABBOULEH

This salad’s fresh crunch works ever so well with steak. We like tenderloin seared until rare and served thinly sliced on top

WEDNESDAY: MIXED BEAN AND MUSHROOM RAGÙ

Bring spice to the ragù with koftas. Treat just like you would mince

THURSDAY: CAULIFLOWER STEAKS AND PURÉE WITH FETA-PARSLEY DRESSING

Added extra: finely chop turkey bacon rashers, fry until crispy and use the rendered fat to cook the capers. Mix the bacon into the dressing
