National Vegetarian Week

Here at Team Baker Street we decided to challenge ourselves and take part in National Vegetarian Week and do the Vegetarian Society’s Veggie 123 challenge. For some of us this was a real challenge, but we all had a lot of fun taking part and even discovered a few new recipes!

Here’s how we got on…

National Vegetarian Week: Team Creations

Danielle from our Marketing team was busy throughout National Vegetarian Week trying out lots of new recipes using our Baker Street products! This is what she created:
  • Avocado egg-in-a-hole: smashed avocado and caramelised onion chutney on Baker Street Seeded Rye Bread with a fried egg baked in the top!
  • Meatless Farm Burger: a Meatless Farm Burger, sliced tomato and cheese on a Baker Street Mega Floured Bap with sweet potato fries and salad.
  • Cream cheese bagel: cream cheese, sundried tomato paste and roasted Mediterranean veg on a toasted Baker Street Soft Bagel.
  • Welsh Rarebit: Welsh rarebit on Baker Street Sliced White Bread.
  • Pizza Rolls: tomato, mozzarella and pesto pizza on a Baker Street Classic Hot Dog Rolls
Homemade Pizza 'Meatballs''No duck' pancakesPesto Pasta
These delicious looking dinners were made by Lauren from our Marketing team. For the spaghetti ‘meatballs’ and ‘no duck’ pancakes, Lauren used Linda McCartney products. The pizza and pesto pasta were both homemade with lots of veggies.

This was Mu, from our technical team’s favourite lunch from the week! A slice of Baker Street Rye Bread topped with goat’s cheese, avocado, piccolo tomatoes (in season and so sweet!) and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar – yum!

Rebecca, who is also part of our marketing team, had some really tasty meals during National Vegetarian Week. This is what she had…

  • Pesto Eggs: fried eggs in pesto topped with mushrooms, onions and tomatoes all on top of a couple of slices of Baker Street Seeded Rye Bread.
  • Curried Falafel: fried vegetables and falafel in some curry spices served with mango couscous and a buttery slice of Baker Street Rye & Wheat Bread.
  • Aubergine & Feta Burger: a veggie burger topped with cheese and salad inside a Baker Street Burger Bun. Served up with onions rings, chips and wedges.

Paul, who is one of our founders here at Baker Street, had a veggie burger night with his family using our Baker Street Mega Baps and Baker Street Hot Dog Rolls. With grilled corn on the cob, humous and lots of salad this is definitely our kind of burger night!

Jen from our Marketing team decided to double up the carbs for one of her lunches and put her veggie risotto on a Baker Street Mega Bap. She also had a very nice Mac n Cheese served with cherry tomatoes, yum!

National Vegetarian Week at Baker Street HQ

As well as going vegetarian for the week, at Baker Street HQ we sampled different vegetarian options throughout National Vegetarian Week. For a lot of us this was the first time we had tried the vegetarian option of certain foods. Check out how we got on…

We had samples to try of three different types of veggie burgers – Linda McCartney Vegetarian Pulled Pork Burgers, spicy bean burgers and ‘chicken’ burgers. We then had bang bang cauliflower hot dogs and halloumi, avocado and humous burgers.


We all really enjoyed taking part in National Vegetarian Week here at Baker Street HQ, and we definitely discovered a few new recipes we would try again!
