Jamie's Ultimate Veg

(Rochester, NY) – WXXI-TV adds Jamie's Ultimate Veg to its Saturday afternoon cooking show line up. Airing Saturdays at 1 p.m. on WXXI-TV beginning March 21st, Jamie Oliver encourages meat-eaters and vegetarians alike to put vegetables at the front and center of their plates. He provides simple tips and techniques for turning ordinary “veg” into extraordinary main dishes. Seeking inspiration from around the U.K. and the globe, host Jamie Oliver cooks up a stunning collection of beautiful, vibrant, hearty and healthy vegetarian dishes that are so delicious and easy to make, you won’t even miss the meat.

In the premiere episode, Cottage Pie & Bonkers Chip Butty, Jamie kicks things off by turbo-charging veg in a game-changing meat free, veg packed cottage pie, with a stunningly rich gravy and super-fluffy mash. He’s inspired by a trip to Delhi, and after sampling amazing Indian street food, Jamie turns a classic British Chip butty into a spicy potato surprise, bonkers but brilliant, packed full of flavour and crunch. He goes back to school in London to meet kids who are celebrating veg, and loads a mighty mac ’n’ cheese full of greens!
