As October continues to fly by, so does World Vegetarian Month. We’re jumping in to share a few tips and tricks on how best to get involved in the final weeks of this plant-based celebration.
Fancy Getting Involved? Here’s How!
Whether you’re whizzing around the kitchen with veggies in hand or hitting the town to explore your favourite plant-based venues is entirely up to you. Jumping on board this veggie month doesn’t mean you have to wave goodbye to meat entirely. In fact, there are a number of exciting ways you can get involved.
Go mad for meatless Monday
A nutrient-rich, veggie-packed meal. What a way to kick start the week! With so many delightful vegetarian recipes out there, going meatless on Mondays is a breeze.
Get down and dirty in the garden
What better way to incorporate more veggies into your diet than growing them yourself? This one might take a little longer – tender loving care required – but we guarantee your meatless Mondays will be even more delicious with this homegrown touch.

Seek Out a New Plant-Based Restaurant
Dining Out? At Foodini, we have a growing community of some of the best vegetarian restaurants in Australia. Think of the Foodini App as your very own vegetarian food guide.
A forever favourite, beautifully located in Bondi Beach, is Flave. If you haven’t already slurped their incredibly creamy dairy-free milkshakes or munched on their perfectly crispy, juicy burgers, you’re missing out. It’s plant-based like you’ve never tasted before.
Fancy something lighter? As we roll into spring, fresh dishes are the go-to. At Haak Eatery, you can have just that. Their vibrant, veggie packed Bibim Bowls are loaded with tofu, avocado, edamame and a whole bunch of other goodies.
We’ve heard time and time again the many benefits that come with inviting more variety into our diets. So, why not try your hand at a few new veggie dishes? It is World Vegetarian Month, after all.
Substituting meat for punchy plant-based proteins is a great way to give meat-free dishes a crack. Meat alternatives are reinventing the way we eat, with companies such as Beyond Meat and Love BUDS opening our eyes to nutritious, sustainable plant-based protein.
Think big – the sky’s the limit when it comes to meat alternatives. No matter your cravings – bangers, burgers – you name it, there’s a vegetarian option. So go on, pop your chef’s hat on and give these delicious vegetarian dishes a try.
Everyone loves Bolognese. It’s comfort in a bowl. This World Vegetarian Day, why not make it vegetarian? Love BUDS has already done all of the hard work in creating this banging recipe – all you have to do is enjoy it.
These fresh, zesty, Asian-style bowls will have you dancing on the table. Alongside the satisfying umami from a generous dose of miso, the meat-like texture of the mushrooms make this recipe the perfect lunch for vegetarians and meat lovers alike.
We all love a warm, hearty bowl of pasta. Why not switch it up and give gnocchi a go? Naturally vegetarian, this rich and silky cacio e pepe sauce will be everyone’s favourite. Dairy free? No worries. Why not try a vegan version?
