Have you ever had a white pizza? This version is topped with sliced mushrooms, brie cheese and fresh sage leaves for an ultra cheesy, festive tasting pizza. Quite possibly the best pizza I’ve eaten all year (and with only a few weeks to go, I’m imagining it will stay that way!).

Who’s excited about Christmas?! I try my hardest to contain myself all through the autumn, but as soon as we get towards December, I can’t hold it in any longer. Get Mariah on the radio, crack open the box of chocolates, and pour me a glass of mulled wine. I’m wearing jingle bell earrings until January.

That said, I find buying presents for other people one of the hardest parts of Christmas. Don’t get me wrong, I love giving gifts and I love making people happy… but I don’t think I’m really very good at choosing presents.

(everybody loves a selection box, right?)

In case you find present buying as difficult as I do, here are a few of the best gifts for vegetarians – if you know a veggie lover, there’s sure to be something on this list that will fit in perfectly in their kitchen.

If you don’t want to scan the whole blog post, here’s a quick overview of the items I’ve chosen:

The best gifts for vegetarians

In no particular order, here are my top picks for Christmas (or otherwise!) gifts for vegetarians. I’ve included Amazon links for both Amazon UK and Amazon US (please note these are affiliate links!).

I’ve tried to choose a good variety of items – ranging all the way from little stocking stuffers to main, under-the-tree type presents. Let me know what you think of my choices, and if you have any other ideas, feel free to let me know in the comments below!

A tofu press

A green tofu press on a white background.

My usual method for pressing tofu is to wrap it in a tea towel or a few sheets of kitchen paper, place a chopping board on top, and then stack up a load of heavy pans (usually filled to the rim with water).

It works… but it’s a bit of a faff. And on more than one occasion, I’ve spilled water everywhere (perhaps this gift guide is more suited to me…).

A tofu press is much simpler – just pop your block of tofu in the box, clamp down the lid, and all the water will be squeezed from your tofu with zero effort from you.

(so not only is a tofu press great for a clumsy vegetarian, but a lazy one too! It’s got me written all over it…)

There are a few different designs of tofu press available, but this one has really good reviews.

And once you’ve got perfectly pressed tofu, don’t forget to read my guide all about how to cook tofu perfectly!

Reusable produce bags

A set of colour coded produce bags.

If you’re a vegetarian, chances are you buy a lot of vegetables – I do know some people that live on beige food (hello, teenage me), but most veggies love veggies.

These reusable produce bags are great for all kinds of uses:

  • take them to the supermarket to fill with loose fruits and veg, meaning you can avoid using the plastic bags provided (much better for the environment!)
  • help keep your fridge organised by storing like products together
  • keep your produce fresh for longer!
  • store loose items like dried beans without the risk of the packet splitting

…and all sorts of other things!

Again, there are quite a few different brands available, but these ones seem to have unanimously great reviews.

A pressure cooker / Instant Pot

Instant Pot Duo.

I tend to use tinned beans in my cooking – they’re one of my most-used ingredients in my kitchen. Kidney beans, black beans, chickpeas… I don’t discriminate.

But if the vegetarian you’re buying for is a better person than me (or perhaps they just don’t have two tiny children!), they probably cook their beans from scratch, buying big bags of dried beans and cooking them in big batches. It’s a super cheap way of eating beans, as well as creating less packaging waste.

But often, dried beans require soaking in advance, sometimes for hours and hours, and then can take another few hours to cook. Okay, most of this is hands-off time, but there’s still always the risk of your pan boiling over or boiling dry, and you still need to be aware that your cooker’s turned on.

A pressure cooker is a great way to cook big batches of dried beans really quickly and easily, with minimal effort and minimal risk. Just put the dried beans in the pot, add some water or stock, and you’re good to go.

The Instant Pot is a brilliant electric pressure cooker, which cooks all kinds of foods in next to no time. Here’s the official guide to cooking beans from Instant Pot themselves – it can take as little as 15 or 20 minutes to cook a batch of beans, even if you’ve not soaked them first!

This is the Instant Pot I have – check out the Instant Pot version of my famous very veggie lentil bake!

Food huggers

A set of green and yellow food huggers on a white background.

Going back to the whole ‘vegetarians probably eat a lot of vegetables’ thing – these food huggers are a great way to keep half-used fruits and veggies fresh in the fridge, without needing to resort to single-use plastics like cling film. Another item to help make our kitchens more environmentally friendly.

These silicone cups come in a variety of sizes, and can be pushed over half a tomato, half a lemon, half an onion… yeah, pretty much half an anything. They create a tight seal around the item, keeping it fresher for longer. They can be used as lids on jars, too.

They’re also dishwasher safe – hurrah! I pretty much refuse to buy anything these days if it requires hand washing.

A vegetable spiraliser

A pencil sharpener-style vegetable spiraliser.

In case you’ve not seen one before, a spiraliser is basically a tool that can cut all sorts of veggies into long, spaghetti-like noodles. Lots of people like to use these veggie noodles as a replacement for real pasta, to lower the calories and carb content of their meals.

This one is a bit of a frivolous idea, and will probably only be fitting for vegetarians who like to eat a super healthy diet. Me, I’m kind of into my carbs, so although I did used to have a spiraliser, I actually got rid of it, as I found I didn’t use it much (and as a food blogger, I don’t have room in my kitchen for heaps of unnecessary gadgets!).

However, the spiraliser I had was more similar to this – a big bulky thing that took up lots of counter space. The kind I’ve featured here is more of a pencil sharpener style, so easier to throw in a drawer for occasional use.

So even if your veggie friend is only occasionally concerned with carbs (let’s say, 1st – 10th January each year), this one might be worth a try.

Vegetarian cookbooks

A collage showing 3 popular vegetarian cookbooks from 2019.

I pretty much never cook recipes from cookbooks (one of the perils of developing my own recipes for a living – I always have to try to come up with my own ideas instead), but I still have a big collection of vegetarian cookbooks.

I absolutely love browsing through cookbooks, especially ones with a big, colourful photo for each recipe. I always seem to bookmark almost every recipe, despite knowing I’ll never actually cook any of them.

Of course, there are all sorts of veggie cookbooks around, so the exact book you choose will probably be guided by the person you’re buying for (do they like hearty comfort food, or super healthy salads? Vegan meals or cheesy bakes? Quick and easy one pot recipes, or intricate labours of love?).

Here are a few vegetarian books that I’ve heard really good things about lately:

A mesh BBQ mat

A mesh BBQ grill mat being used to cook various vegetables.

BBQing is not just for meat-eaters!

It may sound weird, but I adore BBQs in the summer – despite not eating meat, there’s always an amazing selection of grilled veggies, halloumi, corn on the cob, veggie burgers and sausages, various salads and side dishes… okay, now I’m hungry.

Although here in the Northern Hemisphere we’re still quite a way away from BBQ weather (about as far away as you can get, in fact), there’s no harm in preparing for the summer in advance, and these mesh grill mats look so useful.

Just pop the mat straight onto the BBQ rack, and you’ll be able to grill all sorts of veggie bits without any danger of things falling through into the coals (I’ve lost many a piece of asparagus this way). It will also help to hold together delicate veggie burgers, which always seem to break apart, and it keeps your BBQ grill clean (they can be a pain to wash!).

Considering these mesh grill mats are pretty cheap, and can be used again and again, that sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

There seem to be many different brands available, so just do your research and find the one that you like the look of.

A set of egg poachers

A pair of yellow egg poachers.

Eggs are a great source of protein for vegetarians – not to mention they’re cheap, versatile, and delicious!

Poached eggs are notoriously difficult to make, but these silicone egg poachers promise perfect poached eggs every time. Just stand them in a pan of boiling water, crack in your eggs, and there’s your breakfast (or lunch, or dinner…) sorted.

Unlike a lot of silicone egg poachers, these ones actually allow the eggs to cook directly in the water, giving a proper, authentic poached egg!

A salad spinner

A green and white OXO salad spinner.

Again, this one will be more relevant to some vegetarians than others – I know a lot of vegetarians who rarely come within ten feet of a salad (myself included). But if your vegetarian friend is a salad lover, a salad spinner is a must in their kitchen!

There’s nothing worse than soggy salad leaves, and a salad spinner is the quickest way to dry your lettuce without damaging it (as well as all sorts of other fruits and veggies!).

This model also has a hole in the lid for adding your salad dressing, so it’s an easy way to create a perfectly dressed salad too.

Plus, you guessed it, it’s dishwasher safe!

Well, there you have it – 9 perfect gift ideas for the vegetarian in your life! Which will you go for this year?

Whenever I go to a Greek restaurant (which admittedly isn’t very often), I order vegetarian moussaka. Greek food is actually pretty veggie-friendly (spanakopita! hummus! briam! halloumi!), but even with heaps of incredible meat-free dishes on offer, I always seem to find myself tempted back to the vegetarian moussaka. There’s not much that can beat a hot, cosy casserole.

That’s right, you heard (read?) correctly. This is a cream of mushroom soup – but there’s actually no cream involved, so it’s totally vegan. I’m not vegan myself (as you may have guessed from the copious amounts of cheese in my cooking), but it’s always fun to challenge myself to cook something vegan every now and then – and when the end result is this good, there’s no reason not to!

These vegetarian smothered burritos are the ultimate Mexican dinner – soft tortillas stuffed with a rich mushroom and black bean mixture, and smothered with a jalapeño sour cream sauce!

A vegetarian smothered burrito topped with tomatoes and jalapenos, with a scoop removed.

You may know that I adore Mexican food. Nachos, enchiladas, burritos… basically, if something is cheesy and spicy and saucy, I am here for it.

But do you know what’s even better than a crispy, cheesy burrito? A smothered burrito! These mushroom and black bean smothered burritos are pretty much my new favourite thing ever.

A vegetarian smothered burrito with a scoop removed, and mushrooms and black beans spilling out.

What is a smothered burrito?

You may be wondering what on earth a smothered burrito actually is. It’s pretty self-explanatory – it’s a burrito that’s been smothered in some kind of tasty sauce.

And when you take a burrito that’s already super tasty, with a hot and cheesy filling, and then smother it in a creamy, spicy sauce… it’s even better.

Rich tomatoey mushrooms cooking in a frying pan.

Mushroom and black bean burritos

First up, the burrito itself!

You can obviously smother any kind of burrito (sounds a bit sinister, but it’s delicious, I swear).

This time, I went for a simple mushroom and black bean filling, with rice and a rich, spicy tomato sauce. It was awesome. Feel free to use different veggies if you prefer – some peppers or chopped spinach would work nicely too. You can really stuff your burrito however you like!

Of course, it’s always a good idea to add a bit of grated cheese to your burrito filling too, not only to help hold everything together (melty cheese is the perfect glue!), but also just because it’s flipping delicious.

How to fold a burrito

When you’ve prepared your filling, wrap it up in some large flour tortillas.

It doesn’t really matter how you fold your burrito, as long as you end up with everything safely wrapped up inside. But people are always telling me they have problems wrapping burritos neatly, so here’s how to fold a burrito in a way that will keep all your filling safe.

First, arrange your filling in a rectangular shape in the centre of the tortilla (see image 1 in the collage below). Until you’re an expert burrito roller, don’t try to add too much filling.

Fold in the two short ends of the rectangle first (like I’ve done in image 2).

Then, you can either roll the burrito into a cylinder, or just fold in the two longer sides of the rectangle to make a flatter shape (images 3 and 4). Since we’re going to be smothering that tasty sauce on top, I prefer a flatter burrito for these!

Collage showing 4 steps of how to fold a burrito.

Jalapeño sour cream sauce

You could eat your burritos as is – but to really take them to the next level, mix up a little bowlful of this easy jalapeño sour cream sauce.

Again, the name isn’t too much of an enigma – it’s just sour cream mixed with finely chopped jalapeños and some fresh coriander (cilantro), along with a good pinch of salt and pepper.

Quick and easy to make, but so so good.

Collage showing how to make a simple jalapeno sour cream sauce.

Smothered burritos

It’s time to get smothering! Lay your filled burritos on a baking tray, and liberally slather the sour cream sauce on top.

This is not the time to be stingy.

You don’t need to be tidy about it – it doesn’t need to be perfectly even or anything. I actually quite like it when there are bits of uncovered tortilla poking through the sauce (they get nice and crispy!), while in other places the sauce is overflowing down the edge of the burrito. Go crazy.

Baked burritos

Finally, pop your smothered burritos in the oven to bake.

It might seem a little odd to be baking a sour cream sauce, but it actually works really well! It keeps the burritos nice and moist, but still crispy on the edges, and the parts where the sauce itself gets golden are really yummy.

Finish with some toppings!

I know I always go on about toppings when it comes to Mexican food, but it’s true – a few fresh toppings will never fail to raise your smothered burritos to the next level. I simply used some diced tomatoes, fresh coriander (cilantro), and some extra jalapeños, but there are all sorts of things you could pile up on top of your burritos:

  • diced or sliced avocado
  • finely chopped red onion
  • salsa or guacamole
  • black olives

Stack them high and dig in!

Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 4 burritos
Calories 486kcal

Ingredients

  • 100 g (~ 1/3 cup) white rice
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced or diced
  • 8 medium mushrooms, sliced or diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree / paste
  • 145 g (~ 2/3 cup) cooked black beans (~ 3/4 of a standard tin)
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 150 g cheddar cheese, grated (~ 1 1/2 cups when grated)
  • 1 tbsp pickled jalapeños (I used green), finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp coriander (cilantro), finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp sour cream
  • Toppings, to serve (optional): diced tomatoes, diced red onion, black olives, fresh coriander, jalapeños, diced avocado, etc.

Instructions

  • Boil the rice in plenty of water until just cooked, then drain.
  • Meanwhile, heat a dash of oil in a large frying pan, and add the onion and mushrooms. Cook for a few minutes over a medium heat until slightly softened, then add the garlic, smoked paprika, cumin and tomato puree. Cook for a few more minutes, stirring regularly.
  • Add the black beans and the cooked rice, and season generously. Mix well to combine.
  • Take one of the large flour tortillas, and add about 1/4 of the rice mixture to the centre. Top with 1/4 of the grated cheese. Fold two sides of the tortilla inwards, then rotate through 90° and fold in the other two sides to fully wrap the burrito (see the blog post for more detailed burrito-folding tips!).
  • Repeat with the remaining tortillas, rice, and cheese, and place the burritos seam-side down on a baking tray.
  • In a small bowl, combine the finely chopped jalapeños, coriander, and sour cream. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and mix well.
  • Divide the sour cream sauce over the 4 burritos, and spread it around a little. Bake at 190°C (Gas Mark 5 / 375°F) for around 15-20 minutes, or until crisped up to your liking. Serve with your choice of toppings.

I love a super quick meal! I’m lazy at the best of times, but especially being 8 months pregnant, I can only stand around for short periods of time before needing a good rest. So if I can get dinner on the table in 15 minutes, that’s a win for me!
