University chef reveals Plant-Based Week recipe

25th May 2022 - 11:53
Chef Jadezra Maryan, one of the culinary team at Bristol University, was inspired to create the plant-based dish based on the students’ love of burritos, street food and ‘a good curry’.

Head of catering at the university, Caroline Wynn, said: “The recipe was perfected in the quieter summer months back in 2021 and launched it as part of the university’s ‘Meat-Free Monday’ campaign in September.

“It has been consistently the most popular dish on that day ever since, with great feedback from students. The dish fits with the university’s sustainability ethos , showcases international flavours and is delicious too.”
