Nine simple meat-free recipes for the Nine Days

If you're looking for inspiration for fish and veggie-led lunches and suppers — read on


Every one of these dishes is perfect to feed your family and friends over the Nine Days and beyond:

  1. Claudia Roden's fruit and vegetable-packed olive, pomegranate and walnut salad (above) tastes even better than it looks and is fully of juicy crunchy texture. Ideal with griddled haloumi or grilled fish.

  2. Denise Phillips's simple butter bean hummus with crispy fried tofu squares served on a cumin-coated flatbread makes a lovely lunch or part of a tasty meat-free, mezze spread.

  3. Make the most of seasonal new potatoes with this hearty salad from Nicola Graimes who partners them with radishes, watercress and salty feta cheese. Turn it into dinner with some grilled fish on the side.

  4. A summery soba noodle salad from Alexander Gershberg is packed with a rainbow of different ingredients. Serve the salad toppings on a big platter and let everyone choose their own.

  5. This spin on shawarma using salmon — from Fabienne Viner-Luzzato — is as flavourful as it is colourful. Assemble your own filled pitas at the table.

  6. If you're feeding a crowd, my crumb-topped salmon fillet with rainbow veggies will fit the bill.

  7. Shiri Kraus's spiral vegetable tart is packed with healthy veggies and is far easier to prepare than it looks.

  8. My harissa tuna with pomegranate and cucumber salsa ticks all the boxes - spicy, sweet and summery — and it's super easy and quick to prepare.

  9. Sarah Mann-Yeager's zesty cod tray baked with olives and potatoes is not only delicious but also baked in one tin - meaning less washing up.
