Yes we are all supposed to be vegetarian in the Byron Bay/Northern Rivers area. This is not quite true, but there have been many wonderful vegetable recipes shared on belly over the years, from the obscure and exotic, and yet so suited to our climate, to comfort food from many parts of the world. From the totally vegan to not-quite-veg (what – anchovies are not vegetables?), most of us looove a veggie dish. It helps that most things grow beautifully, and local farmers are spoiling us more each year.
