Vegetables in the leading role

Vegetarian food is and will continue to be a trend. And we know how to deal with it in our restaurants. These vegetarian main dishes are real winners that will get us through the winter.

Artichoke | Green salad | Topinamburger | Nuts | Fried egg

This is a classic dish from French cuisine. The artichoke only needs to be cooked briefly, that's all, it's already super tasty. But the topinambur, also called Jerusalem artichoke, is the main character of this dish. Its skin is dried and then fried. This gives the dish a crispy bite. And the egg completes it.

Grilled leeks | Potato mousseline | Crunchy palm cabbage | Chanterelle | Coffee | Porcini mushroom paper

In the winter season leeks are available in abundance. And that's a good thing, because leeks are a delicious vegetable that you can do anything with. Put it on the grill for a subtle flavor. The creamy mashed potatoes consist of half potato and half butter. That always tastes good, of course. The coffee gives this dish a special twist. And the chanterelles make it all that little bit more beautiful and luxurious. Truly a dish with a chic touch.

A fried egg is the perfect finishing touch for this dish
Beet | Risotto | Amsterdam onions | Bimi | Raspberry | Herb Oil

What a feast this is to look at! Let alone to taste. The beautiful colors make this dish pop off your plate. And the diverse flavors make for an exciting whole. For example, the sweet and sour of the Amsterdam onions and the balsamic vinegar together with the fruity of the raspberries, is a great combination.

SUSTAINABLE TREND

Vegetarian food is not only delicious and healthy, but also sustainable. And that, of course, is also important. Afraid you'll miss meat or fish in a dish? No worries. When vegetable-based dishes are prepared properly, you don't even need meat substitutes. Above all, let your creativity run wild in the kitchen. Experiment with color, texture and different ways of preparing vegetables. For example, when you fry celeriac nice and brown in butter, you get a kind of caramel taste: delicious!

Winter is high season for leeks
