Bestselling online courses for vegetarians

By Alex N

Our students often tell us that they’ve joined one of our online gardening or cookery courses for vegetarian inspiration – after they or a family member decides to adopt a vegetarian or vegan diet.

Our experts, including Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Kirk Haworth or Rachel de Thample have got plenty of exciting vegetarian recipes and can help you learn how to grow more veg and cook for a vegetarian diet.

Every Learning with Experts course includes assignments to help you practice what you’ve watched, and if you choose the Expert option you’ll receive personal feedback from your tutor on your assignment.

Here’s a selection of our most popular vegetarian (or vegetable growing) courses (which include some of our favourite vegetarian recipes):

Much More Veg – Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

From the River Cottage gardens and kitchen, Hugh teaches you how to get the best out of your veg and new ways to cook and serve vegetables. Includes summer BBQ and roasted vegetarian recipes inspired by Hugh’s books and TV series.
