More BBQ ideas for Father’s Day

“Time was when a handful of limp veggie sausages would tide over the odd vegetarian barbecue guest” says field fare MD, Karen Deans. “Not any more. 12 million Brits* are predicted to be meat-free by the end of this year, growing a consumer base that can no longer be ignored, nor fobbed off. Because, if anything, the plant-based consumer is all the more diet-aware and thus demanding of strong foodie credentials. Our response has been to seek out innovative, flavoursome products that are far from ‘substitutions”, but are packed with spice combinations, flavours, textures, international influences and quality, satisfying ingredients. The current shortlisting of our Spicy Quinoa, Beetroot & Edamame Burger for a 2020 Veggie Award suggests that we’re on the right lines”
