Norway – Agurksalat

Norway – Agurksalat

Vegetarianism is growing rapidly in New Zealand, but other parts of the world have had meat-free cuisines for centuries. For a rich and varied plant-based diet, talk to Chinese, Indians, Mexicans… Our wonderful volunteers have shared authentic recipes from around the world. Most of these recipes were traditionally vegan, but some were meat-based recipes that have been ‘veganised’. We have collected 31 recipes from 31 different countries to share with you – one for each day of October.

Thanks to Julia Clements, we have 2 recipes from Norway: one is this Agurksalat and one Dumplings “Komler”.
