Vegetarian foodie Megan Young shares her delicious twists on your favourite dishes

'Veggies and Me' is a labour of love by Australian photographer and vegetarian Megan Young.

Good food, cooking, dining with friends and family and a healthy lifestyle have always been a huge part of her life.

By creating the 'Veggies and Me' blog (www.veggies, Megan hopes to inspire people to try new ingredients, a new recipe or learn about a healthier alternative.

The blog is not just aimed at vegetarians but also encourages meat eaters to try something new or perhaps join the Meatless Monday movement.

These recipes are straight-forward and, with a little bit of planning, can be made by anyone. Megan's day-to-day recipes are quick, easy and full of fresh flavours. They allow you to nourish your body while living a busy modern lifestyle.

The Aussie burger is an all-round crowd pleaser. By keeping high-quality, organic veggie burgers in the freezer, you will always be prepared for this recipe.

When the weather turns cold, a warm bowl of soup, such as the green coconut one here, is so satisfying.

This one is vegan as well as gluten-free. With some crusty gluten-free bread, it makes a great weekend lunch and is ideal for taking to work.

If you venture down to your local farmer's market, you might find Irish wild garlic. The leaves and flowers make a great salad ingredient because of their mild garlic taste.

Why not try serving them up in the wild-garlic pesto. Spread it on mini crostinis for a sophisticated appetiser or on toasted sourdough bread for a rustic, hearty bruschetta.
