I am serving Simon Hopkinson's lamb with garlic and anchovies, baked ratatouille, mashed potatoes and green beans.
My go-to dish veggie dish is a piece of fish, usually bream or sea bass, spread with tapenade and quickly roasted, and it would go perfectly with the meal tonight.
But I would like to do an actual vegetarian dish instead of just fish. Any suggestions that would pair nicely with the other sides? I am thinking a warm cannellini bean salad but it just doesn't seem very substantial. I don't want her (the veggie) to feel her meal has been an afterthought.,
I am terrible with veggie food and need to think of a "centrepiece" dish rather than a couple of extra sides, I started cooking in the eighties and am not very patient with meals that involve lots of little dishes to make up the protein element!
Starter is mozzerella tomato and avocado salad, and pud is almond macaroons with mascarpone cream and fresh strawberries.
